A Take-Home Kit For Whitening Your Teeth

When your teeth become yellow or gather stains and blemishes, a professional tooth whitening solution can provide dramatic results. While a store-bought kit may seem convenient, a treatment from your dentist is tailor-made to your unique needs and level of discoloration. Enjoy a brighter smile free from unsightly marks once again! In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN dentist discusses how our whitening kit lifts stains from your enamel to brighten your smile’s shade.

What Are The Causes Of Dental Discoloration?

A common cause of yellow teeth is the buildup of bacterial plaque, which makes discoloration highly visible. Failing to regularly brush and floss your teeth can leave a sticky film that wears away at your bright, white enamel. The bacteria feast on sugary food and drinks, so altering your diet can have a positive effect on preventing discoloration. Certain drinks like coffee, tea, and soda also have pigments that leave a mark on your enamel. If you use tobacco in its various forms, this can quickly darken the shade of your teeth. When you visit our practice, we will examine the root cause of your discoloration to determine which treatment best helps you recover its white appearance.

Whitening Your Smile At Home

Our take-home solution for whitening your teeth allows you to treat your discoloration on your own schedule. This can be a valuable option for busy patients who would like to minimize their trips in the dental chair. We will provide a set of custom plastic trays to wear in the evening to provide your whiter smile. We will instruct you on the specific amount of time to wear your trays to obtain the desired effect. A powerful bleaching agent offers a smile that is several shades brighter but safe for at-home application. After completing your whitening treatment, we encourage you to save the remaining trays and gel for touch-ups in the future.

When Lost Enamel Darkens Your Smile

While a whitening gel bests removes stains from within your surface enamel, another option best treats discoloration from the loss of the enamel itself. Intrinsic discoloration occurs when surface erosion reveals the darker layer of dentin inside your tooth. To return the original shade of your smile, we can place porcelain veneers over your blemished teeth. This versatile cosmetic treatment option allows you to select the color of porcelain we employ and can correct other problems with your smile at once.
