It's inevitable that at some point in your life, you will notice that your teeth start to look a little dull or discolored. It happens to everyone, and it’s another part of the aging process, whether you’re 35 or 55.
The lifestyle choices you make also affect the brightness of your smile; drinking coffee or red wine deposits stains on your teeth, and smoking can leave your teeth looking brown and unattractive.
Creating beautiful, healthy smiles is what we do, and stained teeth are usually an easy fix. If your smile looks stained or faded, professional teeth whitening options at our Mountain View, CA dental office can help.
What Happened to My Bright Smile?
You brush and floss conscientiously and get routine dental cleanings every six months, but your smile still looks dull and faded. So what’s going on?
As we age, our dental enamel thins and the yellowish layer of dentin beneath becomes more apparent. Microscopic pores open up in the enamel layer and attract and holds stains. The result is a stained or discolored smile that detracts from your overall appearance.
Trust Professional Teeth Whitening
We know how tempting it can be to try over-the-counter whitening solutions. But like most things in life, you get what you pay for.
It’s not that there’s anything inherently wrong with OTC whiteners; it’s that they are much less potent than professional teeth whiteners. They produce results, but you can use them for a long time and spend a lot of your hard-earned dollars before you notice any difference in the brightness of your smile.
Teeth whitening performed under the supervision of a dental professional ensures that you will achieve the brightest, most consistent results with minimal sensitivity. And if you choose our customized take-home whitening kits, you can always turn to us if you have any problems.
Customized Teeth Whitening Options for Your Convenience
At Gorrell Smiles, we want to provide teeth whitening solutions that fit your needs. For this reason, we offer both in-office and customized take-home whitening kits.
- In-office teeth whitening is the fastest way to see dramatic results, so it’s perfect if you have a big event like a wedding, reunion, or sales conference and want to look your best as quickly as possible. We use LaserSmile™, a revolutionary teeth whitening procedure that is safe and simple and produces whiter smiles in less than an hour. This shorter treatment time means less exposure to heat and less of the sensitivity common with in-office power whitening treatments.
- Many of our patients prefer our customized take-home kits because it gives them control over the whitening process. We’ll take impressions of your teeth to customize your whitening trays, so they conform perfectly to the contours of your teeth. A customized fit keeps the whitening gel on your teeth and away from your sensitive gums while also delivering beautiful, consistent results.
