Do you have big plans for the summer, such as vacations or a get-together with friends and family? If so, you probably want your smile to look its best. Which means finding a way to remove those teeth stains! Fortunately, we can help with professional teeth whitening, which we offer for residents of Omaha, NE and surrounding communities!
In-Office Teeth Whitening
If you want results quickly, then we may recommend our in-office procedure. With this option we help brighten teeth by several shades in as little as one to two hours. We begin by placing a protective barrier over the lips and gums. We next add the bleaching gel to the teeth, coating your smile and using a light to activate the bleaching gel. We repeat the process, which begins to break up and remove discoloration. In a single visit, you can leave with a brighter smile, perfect if you need results before a date or job interview.
Offering Brighter Smiles From Home
We also have an option you can use at home, one that reduces the risk of tooth sensitivity and brightens teeth by up to 10 shades in some cases. You first come to the office, so we can create a set of custom-made plastic trays. We then prescribe a powerful bleaching gel. At home, you will fill the trays with gel and wear them for about 30 to 45 minutes. The trays help spread the gel evenly across your smile. After one to two weeks, the trays and gel will break up stains and help you enjoy a more attractive smile.
Other Tips for Brighter Teeth
In addition to professional teeth whitening, you can achieve results (and maintain your newly brightened smile) with routine care. You should brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes, and floss every night before going to bed. We suggest cutting back on drinks with dark pigments, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and soda. Also, consider consuming fewer sugary foods and drinks, which could lead to plaque buildup, a major factor in the appearance of teeth stains. Finally, be sure to see us every six months for a checkup and cleaning! Also, remember that you can keep your trays and remaining gel for touch-ups down the road. If you have any questions about obtaining a brighter smile, then please contact our team today.
