Sometimes even the most diligent oral hygiene can’t prevent the natural discoloration of teeth though the aging process. As we age, so do our teeth. Teeth may become discolored or lackluster in appearance from drinking coffee or wine, smoking, taking certain medications, and wear and tear over time.That is why a brighter smile often provides teeth whitening patients with a more youthful appearance.
At Foothills Dentistry, we offer professional in-office teeth whitening that can brighten your smile up to 8 shades in just 45 minutes! A safe, yet highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide teeth whitening gel is placed on your teeth, once your gum have been carefully isolated. Then the peroxide gel is allowed to sit on your teeth in 15 minute intervals, then reapplied to safely remove unwanted stains and discoloration.
Our professional grade teeth whitening system is about twice as effective as over the counter products.
For at-home smile maintenance, we offer take home teeth whitening kits. Unlike over the counter teeth whitening products, our at-home professional grade teeth whitening system contains one syringe of hydrogen peroxide gel about twice the concentration of in-store products. For this reason, professional teeth whitening kits must be administered by a dental professional.
We often advise patients to be careful when attempting natural teeth whitening recipes or teeth whitening home remedies. Even some seemingly harmless everyday household items such as lemon or baking soda can cause more harm than good. Baking soda is highly abrasive and lemons are highly acidic, both of which can damage the tooth enamel. To be safe, if you are interested in natural teeth whitening tips, always consult your dentist or dental professional first.
