A lot of our patients want whiter teeth. While cleaning teeth can help whiten them, we also offer a service specifically designed to improve their color. Smalltown Dental offers teeth whitening at the office, as well as trays that you can take at home. Learn how both of these options can give you a brighter smile.
Our office has both the technology and expertise required to use state-of-the-art whitening tools. This means you’ll get faster, more effective whitening than you’re able to do by yourself.
Whitening shouldn’t take much longer than an hour. Once we’re done, we recommend sticking to white and light-colored foods and drinks for 48 hours. After that, you can resume your normal diet.
We also offer whitening trays. Many people like the convenience of being able to apply them at home, as well as the ability to do multiple applications over time to get the shade of white they’re looking for.
While you can get whitening trays over the counter, they won’t be as effective as the ones you get at a dental office for two reasons:
- We have access to stronger substances than what you can find over the counter.
- We can make trays custom fit for your mouth.
Who’s a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Most natural teeth can be whitened. If the discoloration can’t be addressed by whitening, we may suggest veneers instead.
