If you’re asking yourself, when is the right time to whiten my teeth, the answer is probably now. If you are unhappy with discolored teeth, then it is absolutely the right time to fix your smile and get that confidence boost you need.
Discolored teeth can make you appear both older and unhealthy, which nobody wants. However, there’s an easy way to shine up your smile and get your dazzling whites back. Our LUMIBRITE teeth whitening treatment takes only a half-hour and is easy to maintain at home after your initial appointment with Dr. Bob.
At-Home Vs. Professional Whitening
Looking in the mirror, unhappy with your smile, you begin to consider all the options. The two mainstream choices are typically at-home whitening strips and professional whitening by your cosmetic dentist. You may have even tried some at-home whitening options to find that the strips over-promise and under-deliver.
With Dr. Bob in Butler, PA, you will know the quality and the results before you spend any money on teeth whitening — unless you already have, of course. Additionally, the results will astonish within a quick 30-minute timeframe. Even more, you will avoid the gum sensitivity that often comes with do-it-yourself teeth whitening.
As an added bonus, coming into the dentist for teeth whitening could help you to identify serious oral health problems. These issues include gum disease and cavities, which could both worsen from at-home whitening. Your dentist will also identify if your teeth do not respond to whitening, in which case we would propose other options.
Discoloration from Within Your Teeth
A lot of tooth discoloration comes from stained enamel. Your enamel becomes stained from a variety of foods and drinks, such as coffee and tea, berries, and cigarette smoke. Stained teeth are perfect contenders for teeth whitening.
However, some discoloration comes from within your teeth. The causes of internal tooth discoloration range from fluorosis to tooth infection. Metal fillings can actually lead to internal tooth discoloration, as well. In order to remedy internal tooth discoloration, we have to do more than whitening. In these cases, we will recommend veneers or Lumineers to brighten your smile.
