If you look in the mirror thinking each day to discover an aged and discolored smile, you are not alone. Teeth naturally darken with age because of years of eating colorful foods like leafy greens, spicy curry, and healthy berries. You will also notice a much darker smile looking back at you if you partake in certain lifestyle habits such as tobacco use, coffee, or drinking red wine.
Teeth may also darken when you have trauma to the tooth or from other conditions that darken your tooth from the inside out.
Fortunately, we offer plenty of teeth whitening options in our Prosper, TX dental office. Read on to learn more.
Teeth Whitening Options
Traditional peroxide-based whitening solutions are the most economical way to brighten your smile. We offer take-home custom trays to give you brilliant results in just a couple of weeks. We will take impressions of your teeth to customize your whitening trays and hold the gel on the surfaces of teeth while minimizing spillage onto the gums, which can cause irritation.
You can retain your trays to touch up your smile whenever you feel that it looks dull again. As long as your teeth and bite remain the same, your teeth whitening trays will last for many years to come. We offer teeth whitening gel refills for sale in our Prosper, TX dental office.
Veneers and Bonding
For teeth that do not respond to teeth whitening gel, we offer both composite bonding and veneers to cover the tooth for a whiter appearance. You may choose to whiten your teeth with traditional gel methods first because we will match the shade of your restoration to your natural tooth color. A brighter color for your natural teeth will give you overall better results.
The best time to start teeth whitening is following a professional dental cleaning. Give us a call or ask your hygienist at your next appointment!
