Brighter Smiles With A Personalized Whitening Kit

woodland hills teeth whiteningWhen you have stains on your smile, then you may feel embarrassed about your appearance. We understand, and we want to help by removing these stains and offering smiles several shades brighter! In today’s blog, your Woodland Hills, CA, dentist talks about personalized take-home teeth whitening kits.

The Causes of Your Teeth Stains

How do teeth stains occur on our smiles? For some, these could be due to improper brushing and flossing, combined with a diet high in sugar and starch, which creates plaque buildup that makes stains more apparent. Other factors include tobacco use. Drinks with dark pigments (coffee, red wine, tea, and soda), or infrequent dental cleanings to remove plaque and tartar buildup. The factors vary, and we will take them into account when we recommend a teeth whitening treatment. For many, our take-home trays and gel can offer smiles up to eight shades brighter in as little as one to two weeks.

A Custom Set of Trays and Gel

To begin, you will stop by our office so we can take detailed digital images of your smile from multiple angles. We then combine these images to create a 3D impression of your smile, and to create a set of plastic trays that fit over your teeth completely. You then send these trays home with you, along with several plastic syringes of a powerful bleaching gel. You fill the trays with gel and wear them for about a half hour to 45 minutes a day, over a period of one to two weeks. The trays keep the results even across your smile and prevent saliva from diluting the gel.

You can keep the trays and any leftover gel for touch-ups as needed. This can help the risk of tooth sensitivity too.

Keeping Teeth Shining

Following treatment, we want you to enjoy a brighter smile for months to come. Which is why we suggest brushing twice a day for two minutes, flossing every evening, and cutting back on the sugar and starch in your diet. Drink more water and less soda, and also see our team for a checkup and cleaning every six months, so we can remove the buildup that makes stains more visible. These same actions also protect you from issues like tooth decay, gingivitis, and even gum disease. If you have any questions about how our team will brighten your smile with our at-home teeth whitening system, then contact our team today to learn more and enjoy a shining smile!
