Is Teeth Whitening Right for You?

One of the questions we’re asked most often is about how you can brighten your smile. This is not surprising, particularly since teeth naturally lose their whiteness over time as the result of aging. However, additional factors may contribute as well, such as indulging in super-pigmented foods and drinks like berries or tea. The good news is that we can address most types of discoloration concerns with teeth whitening. Wondering if this cosmetic treatment is right for you? Find out more about your candidacy, so you can achieve the glittery, sparkling grin you desire.

Your Smile Is Discolored

Do your teeth look somewhat yellow? Perhaps they appear a bit brown. You may even find that your smile just looks a little bit dim rather than vibrant. Whatever the case, desiring a whiter smile is the first step toward qualifying as a candidate for teeth whitening.

Your Visible Smile Is Natural

Are you upset about the discoloration of your natural smile? Or do you feel frustrated with the yellowing or dimming of your veneers, dental bridge, or other prosthetic? If one or more of the teeth you would like to brighten is composed of artificial material, you will need to speak with us about alternative solutions. Teeth whitening is ineffective on prosthetics.

You Have The Time

You will either need an hour or two weeks. If you can clear room in your schedule then you make a great candidate for teeth whitening. You see, you may visit us for a one-hour, in-office session of Zoom! Whitening. Or, you may whiten your teeth at home with custom-made trays over the course of approximately two weeks.

You Want Results

Do you feel strongly about achieving a whiter smile? If so, you make a wonderful candidate for professional teeth whitening – particularly when compared with over-the-counter (OTC) solutions. We provide gentle, effective formulations. Store-brought brands are often damaging without offering the brightening results you desire.
