Benefits of LUMIBRITE Teeth Whitening

There are many good reasons to choose teeth whitening with LUMIBRITE:

  • Dramatically whiter teeth in 30 minutes
  • Topical fluoride integrated to strengthen teeth
  • Sensitivity treatment to avoid discomfort
  • Works on people of all ages
  • Gradual whitening available
  • Boost treatment at home for permanent results

With these benefits, we chose LUMIBRITE as the best option to help our patients achieve the bright smile of their dreams quickly and comfortably.

We offer two types of LUMIBRITE: chairside and at-home whitening options. With chairside whitening, your teeth will be treated in our office and will be whitened dramatically in just one visit.

With at-home whitening, you will get a custom whitening tray, which you will use in the comfort of your home to get gradual whitening results. You can also use at-home whitening trays to extend the results of your chairside whitening.

Why Are Your Teeth Discolored?

Not all tooth discolorations are the same. Teeth whitening works well on extrinsic discoloration, which is caused by exposure to staining. Sources of stains on teeth include:

  • Cigarette smoke
  • Coffee
  • Tea (black, green, and some herbal teas)
  • Chocolate
  • Berries
  • Red wine
  • Dark beer
  • Sports drinks
  • Fruit juices

Tooth discoloration tends to accumulate with age. In fact, the color of your teeth is a subtle clue that people use to guess your age, so it’s not accidental that people think you are older if your teeth are discolored.

However, some kinds of discoloration comes from within the tooth. This type of discoloration doesn’t respond well to teeth whitening. It can be caused by:

  • Exposure to tetracycline antibiotics
  • Fluorosis
  • Tooth trauma
  • Tooth infection
  • Metal amalgam fillings

This type of discoloration doesn’t respond well to teeth whitening. To whiten teeth impacted by this type of discoloration, it’s often necessary to use veneers or Lumineers.

But teeth whitening is safe and relatively inexpensive, so it’s worth a try before seeking other treatments.

Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening

These days, there are many teeth whitening options that you can buy at Walmart, but there are good reasons why you should get your teeth whitening done at the dentist instead. With whitening at the dentist you can:

  • Know if it will work before you buy
  • Identify serious oral health problems
  • Avoid sensitivity
  • Get professional quality results

One of the best reasons to see a dentist for teeth whitening is that they will do an exam before whitening your teeth. This will tell you if your teeth are likely to respond to whitening. It will also help you identify serious health issues that may need to be addressed before you start whitening.

Teeth whitening can cause sensitivity. But we have options to protect you against sensitivity, including the anti-sensitivity treatment built into the LUMIBRITE system.

Whiteners that you buy at the store are weak, highly diluted to avoid risks related to strong whiteners. If you do everything right, you’ll get less whitening with whiteners you buy than with professional whitening. But it’s not easy to get everything right with whiteners. You may end up irritating your gums, whitening your teeth unevenly, or just not getting much whitening because you didn’t use the system properly. But we know how to whiten your teeth properly and can get you the brightest results.
