Posted December 22, 2014 by Wager-Evans Dental


Do you want to greet the New Year with a beautiful, bright smile? Over time, our smile can become dulled as a result of discoloration. Fortunately, you can enjoy a stunning smile with professional teeth whitening. Don’t settle for a stained smile when you have multiple options.

Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Whitening

Question: What causes teeth stains?

Answer: That depends on the type of discoloration. Extrinsic stains, which form on the surface, are caused by smoking, drinks with dark pigments (tea, soda, red wine, and coffee) and the foods we eat. Intrinsic stains, of stains that occur below the enamel, are often the result of certain medications, trauma, or fluorosis.

Question: Can I brighten my smile from home?

Answer: Yes. For patient interested in a brighter smile but don’t have time for office visits, we can provide a set of trays and a bleaching gel. Each day, you will wear the gel-filled tray for the amount of time recommended by the doctor. Optimal results may take between one and two weeks.

Question: Can you remove discoloration in 20 minutes?

Answer: Yes. With Sinsational Smile, we apply a bleaching solution to your teeth, which we activate with a special LED light. This process erases extrinsic discoloration in as little as 20 minutes.

Question: How do I keep my smile bright?

Answer: After your procedure, you should maintain good oral hygiene. You should brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once. We also recommend receiving a dental cleaning at least twice a year. With the right steps, you can make sure your smile stays brighter for longer.
