How We Whiten Your Teeth By Several Shades

When you have embarrassing stains on the surfaces of your teeth, you shouldn’t hide your smile from the world. Instead, you should talk to our team about cosmetic dentistry, which includes professional teeth whitening. In today’s blog, your Shrewsbury, MA, dentist talks about our approach to teeth whitening.

The Factors Behind Your Discoloration

Why do our teeth become stained? Multiple factors could be at play. For example, when we have a diet high in sugar and starch, and don’t brush and floss daily, this could allow plaque buildup to form that makes stains more visible. If you consume beverages with dark pigments, such as tea, coffee, soda, and red wine, then this could cause discoloration. Tobacco use could discolor teeth too, as could a lack of dental cleanings to remove plaque and tartar buildup. If you want a brighter smile, then talk to our team. We can examine your smile to assess the cause and extent of your teeth stains, and then recommend the most appropriate treatment option.

Our Teeth Whitening Treatment

The process starts with a visit to our office. We will take impressions of your smile to design and craft a custom set of plastic trays. We also conduct an initial whitening treatment with a bleaching gel and light. You then return home with the trays and gel. At home, you fill the trays with the gel and wear them for a set amount of time each day. The total treatment time is usually between a week and ten days. You then keep the trays and any leftover gel for touch-ups as needed in the future. Your smile could be up to eight shades brighter, and the treatment is designed to limit the risk of tooth sensitivity.

Keeping Teeth Bright

You can make positive changes to your daily oral hygiene routine to help your new results last. For example, be sure you brush and floss each day and try to cut back on sugar foods and drinks in your diet. Make time to see our team for a checkup and cleaning too, so we can remove all plaque and tartar buildup and polish your smile.

We want to help you obtain results that make you feel proud to smile!
