Steps To Achieve A More Vibrant Smile

Omaha, NE dentist offers teeth whitening services

Preventive dental care is a great way to avoid problems such as cavities and gum disease. Unfortunately, though, these steps may not contribute to brighter pearly whites. Even with toothpaste and mouthwashes that claim to remove surface stains, your teeth may appear discolored. Although this does not mean you have poor oral hygiene, it can lead to lower self-confidence. To fix this, Pacific Hills Dental in Omaha, NE, offers professional teeth-whitening that can be accomplished at home or in our office.

The Disadvantages Of Generic Products

If you have an important event coming up or would like to have a brighter smile in general, it can be tempting to purchase store-bought products that claim to remove stains. While certain toothpaste, mouthwashes, or strips may be able to whiten your teeth, they are made for the general public. Each person has unique needs for their pearly whites, and these products may not be able to give you the results you are looking for.

To target your specific problems, a professional service may be a more effective alternative. Before starting this treatment, your dentist will examine your smile and discuss your goals. They can help decide if whitening will help improve your concerns, or if an alternative may be more useful.

Customized Treatment Tailored To You

Our whitening service can be accomplished at home or in our office. If done at home, we will send you home with personalized trays and bleaching gel. You will wear these daily for up to two hours. In a few weeks, you can show off your new, vibrant grin. This treatment can also be done in an expedited process in our office. The gel will be applied to each of your teeth and activated with a light. You will be able to see visible results after your hour appointment.

Maintaining Your Results

Now that your smile is brighter, you will want to keep these effects. Daily, you should be brushing your teeth. This step keeps harmful bacteria from forming cavities and can reduce staining that can be caused by drinking dark-colored beverages or eating certain foods. Do not forget to come in twice a year for a cleaning, as well.

Some types of discoloration may not be caused by external factors. If you have intrinsic staining, an alternative cosmetic improvement may be necessary. Instead of removing surface stains, internal discoloration can be camouflaged with the use of bonding or with veneers depending on your preference. Cosmetic bonding is a more conservative approach that adds composite resin to blemished areas.
