Check Your Answers
- False. Professional teeth whitening addresses extrinsic stains (those on the outer surface of teeth. These stains are often the result of overexposure to dark pigments like those found in coffee, tea, and soda. However, teeth whitening will not remove intrinsic stains (those that occur within the tooth). Intrinsic stains may result from damage to the tooth, too much fluoride exposure, and some medications. To improve the appearance of teeth with intrinsic stains, your Reno cosmetic dentists, Dr. Wager and Dr. Evans, may suggest dental bonding or the application of porcelain veneers.
- False. Although they may show mild results, whitening toothpastes and strips simply don’t pack the punch necessary to yield a dramatic transformation. Professional teeth whitening methods have clinical grade whitening agents that can lighten teeth noticeably.
- True. Your Reno cosmetic dentists, Dr. Wager and Dr. Evans offer one visit teeth whitening. This treatment takes about one hour, and results show instantly. You’ll be able to show off your new smile on the way out the door.
