Have your teeth lost their sparkling beauty? Are you ready for a smile transformation? By definition, all smiles are beautiful. But if your teeth are making you feel self-conscious because of their appearance, you will find that teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to make a real difference in the way you look and feel.
Your smile is usually the first thing people notice about you, and it has a lot to do with the way people view you when you first meet in social and business situations. The professional team at our Dillon dental office believes that this very important first impression should be memorable. We offer effective at-home teeth whitening that produces dazzling results in just a few treatments.
Why Do My Teeth Look So Dull?
There are many factors that contribute to a smile that is less than luminous. To a great extent, the whiteness of your teeth is affected by genetics, and the natural shade of your teeth can range from yellow to grayish-white.
As we age, our dental enamel also becomes worn and more porous, developing microscopic holes. This means that your teeth can capture tiny particles of stain-producing food and beverages like dark berries, tea, wine, and coffee, creating a dark or dull appearance. Tobacco use can also cause your teeth to become severely stained.
How Does the Teeth Whitening Process Work?
Our Dillon dental office provides Opalescence at-home whitening kits for you to use in the privacy and comfort of your own home. The first step is a thorough dental cleaning by one of our experienced and knowledgeable dental hygienists. We recommend this to all our teeth whitening patients because it will remove any plaque that is lingering on your teeth. This makes the process more effective since plaque that remains on your teeth can reduce the effects of whitening.
Next, we take an impression so we can create a custom-made tray that fits perfectly over your teeth. The proper fit of this tray is really important because we want the whitening gel to come into full contact with all visible surfaces of your teeth. Drs. Hilton and Marcincin will talk to you about how long and how often you should use the trays and the results you can expect. Before you leave our office, we show you how to carefully place the gel inside the tray to achieve maximum whitening results.
