When people are asked what bothers them most about the appearance of their smile, many say yellow or discolored teeth.
Arlington Dental offers two safe, efficient, and economical ways to brighten your teeth and improve your smile. Most everyone who utilizes this cosmetic treatment will experience moderate to substantial improvement in the brightness and whiteness of their teeth.
Teeth whitening is a bleaching process that lightens the discoloration of enamel and dentin. The most common causes of this type of discoloration include age, the consumption of coffee, tea, cola, and tobacco, as well as antibiotic staining, excessive fluoride, nerve degeneration, and old restorations. While almost anyone can benefit from teeth bleaching, there are some cases where the treatment may not be effective. Your dentist can determine the viability of this process working for you through oral examination and recommend the correct method of care to obtain the best results.
Significantly brighter and whiter teeth can be yours in an hour with our in-office whitening treatment. We apply a solution to your teeth every 15 minutes for up to an hour until the whiteness and brightness you seek have been achieved. The procedure is safe and will not harm your teeth and gums. If you’d prefer to whiten your teeth at home, we can provide you with trays that are custom-molded to your mouth that will allow you to brighten your teeth more gradually- an hour or two a day or while you sleep- until the desired brightness is reached. For a more pronounced and effective solution, the one-hour office treatment is highly recommended. Your dentist will give you information on follow-up care that will help you maximize and maintain the brightness and whiteness of your teeth.
