Your smile may become dull or discolored over time due to a number of factors, including:
- Poor dental hygiene
- The natural aging process
- Frequent consumption of foods and drinks that stain your enamel
- Use of tobacco products, including smoking
- The use of certain medications
If this is the case for you, our cosmetic dentist may recommend renewing your smile with professional teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is one of the simplest and most effective ways to improve the appearance of your smile. While there are many over-the-counter whitening options available, nothing will enhance your smile as quickly, safely or effectively as a professional whitening treatment. Dr. Jon Glenn offers both in-office and take-home teeth whitening to meet your needs and help you achieve your smile goals.
Both in-office and take-home whitening rely on a powerful whitening gel applied to the surface of your teeth. This gel works to break up and lighten stains, discoloration and yellowing on your tooth enamel. When you receive in-office whitening, this gel is activated with a special light to speed up the whitening process so that you can leave our office with a noticeably brighter smile. When you receive take-home whitening, the gel is placed into trays. As you wear these trays over a period of weeks, your teeth will gradually become whiter.
When you visit our office for your appointment, our cosmetic dentist and team will discuss your whitening options and smile goals with you to determine which type of whitening is right for your smile, or whether a more permanent treatment, such as dental veneers, maybe best for you.
