When you have yellow and brown stains on the surfaces of your teeth, don’t rely on less-than-stellar store-bought treatments. Instead, talk to our team about our professional teeth whitening treatments, which can brighten smiles by several shades. In today’s blog, your Seattle, WA, dentist looks at our in-office and at-home teeth whitening options.

The Causes of Your Discoloration

Why do our teeth develop unsightly stains anyway? These can occur due to multiple factors. For example, if you don’t brush and floss properly, this can encourage plaque buildup, which makes stains more apparent. A diet high in sugar is also a source of plaque. If you consume beverages with dark pigments, such as red wine, coffee, tea, and soda, this could discolor your teeth, as could tobacco products like cigarettes. As part of your treatment, we want to identify the cause of your stains and assess the severity, so we can choose the optimal results, and also talk about tips for keeping your teeth brighter!

Whitening Smiles in Our Office

Our in-office teeth whitening system is very effective and offer results in as little as one to two hours, so you leave with a much brighter smile. To start, we will apply a protective coating on your lips and gums before we apply the bleaching gel to the teeth. A special light is then employed to activate the bleaching ingredients in the gel, so we begin breaking up the stains. We can repeat the process as needed. If you need results quickly, in time for a big meeting, first date, job interview, or special event, we can help!

Our Take Home Cosmetic Treatment

Our team also has a teeth whitening treatment you can take home with you, one designed to handle more severe stains without causing tooth sensitivity. First, you visit our office just long enough for our team to create a set of custom plastic trays that fit snugly over your teeth. We then send these home with you, accompanied by several plastic syringes of bleaching gel. At home, you fill the trays with the gel and wear them for a set amount of time each day, over a period of one to two weeks. The trays ensure the results are even and that saliva never dilutes the gel. For some, teeth could be eight shades brighter and you can keep the trays and any leftover gel for touch-ups as needed.

If you have any questions about how we brighten smiles by multiple shades with professional teeth whitening, or about any of our other cosmetic treatment options, then contact our team today to learn more.
