In-Office Whitening

Want more sparkle in your smile? Do you feel like you could use more sparkle in your teeth? Have discolored teeth been impacting your confident smile? Well, the team at Wager Evans Dental can help to brighten up your smile to give it the shine that it deserves. Tooth whitening is a non-invasive procedure that helps you obtain the smile you’ve always wanted. Professional tooth whitening helps to remove any discoloration or long-lasting stains, for your most desired smile.

What Causes Discoloration?

A big part of discoloration is due to daily diet and lifestyle habits. Many of the stains can be minimized with a look at your health. The main causes of discoloration are:

  • Tobacco use
  • Coffee and Teas
  • Red wine
  • Soda
  • Injury to teeth
  • Medications

The stains on your teeth can be classified as either extrinsic or intrinsic. The extrinsic stains are also known as surface stains, these sit on top of the enamel and can typically be removed by using a whitening toothpaste. Underneath the enamel is what is known as intrinsic stains. These stains are long-lasting and can be removed using professional whitening.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

When you come in for the appointment, your teeth will be cleaned to remove any food or bacteria buildup. The appointment will start with a color matching process so that the dentist can see what shade your teeth are at now in their current stage, then you can compare the color after the procedure is finished. This noninvasive procedure can be done in as little as 30 minutes.

After-Care for Teeth Whitening

Many patients feel fine after teeth whitening. Some may experience tooth sensitivity afterward. Normal brushing and flossing practices should resume to help keep the teeth clean and shining.
