How We Brighten Smiles With Teeth Whitening

greenville teeth whiteningYour smile helps you make a great first impression. If you have dental discoloration, you may feel embarrassed about your smile’s appearance. But we can help remove stains with cosmetic dentistry. In today’s blog, Smith Family Dentistry in Greenville, TX, talks about how we brighten smiles with teeth whitening, and mask severe stains with treatments like dental bonding or porcelain veneers!

The Opalescence® Treatment Option

Our team can provide a professional treatment that offers more dramatic and longer-lasting results than traditional store-bought options. The Opalescence system can brighten your teeth in one visit, with results possible in as little as an hour. The system involves placing a protective covering on your lips and gums, and then applying the powerful bleaching gel directly to your teeth. No need for bright lights to activate the gel, this is a chemically-activated system that can remove discoloration and brighten smiles by several shades in one appointment. The results will last far longer, especially if you attend professional cleanings every six months.

Masking Dental Discoloration

The Opalescence system can easily remove surface stains, also known as extrinsic teeth stains. But our team can also treat intrinsic ones, which form beneath the surface and are often difficult for teeth whitening to address. In these situations, we can use other cosmetic treatments to mask the stains. For example, with dental bonding we can use composite resin to mask the discoloration in only one visit. To address multiple smile imperfections at once, we could apply porcelain veneers to the teeth, instantly reshaping them and masking discoloration. Regardless of the severity of your stains, we have options to help you with confidence again!

Preventing Discoloration

Our team can also discuss treatments to help prevent stains or allow your whitening results to last much longer. For example, you can take time to brush and floss daily to remove food and drink particles, which limits plaque and tartar buildup and makes discoloration less visible. Cutting back on sugar and starch in your diet also helps too, as this deprives bacteria of a meal and limits plaque and tartar severity. A professional cleaning then removes all buildup and allows us to polish the smile so you leave with a brighter smile.
