Teeth Whitening An Overview
Teeth whitening can provide the quick, economical and painless smile makeover you may need for that special event, wedding, reunion- or just to boost your smile confidence. Drs. Dechter and Moy offer in office and take-home teeth whitening for brightening your smile and taking years off of your overall appearance.
When starting with a healthy, clean smile teeth whitening can remove stains and tooth darkening from lifestyle habits and aging. Patients often boost the whiteness of their smile 6-8 shades brighter. Professional teeth whitening can offer a safer, more effective and lasting result when compared to over the counter options.
We offer in office and custom take-home teeth whitening treatments which can be chosen separately or combined to suit your dental health needs and cosmetic goals. Your dentist will make recommendations for you based upon an exam and your goals. There are certain types of tooth stains that do not respond well or at all to teeth whitening. For patients with stains that are the result of medical conditions, medications, or genetics, we can offer alternative cosmetic treatments for whitening your teeth. These can include:
- Dental crowns: for a single discolored tooth, a dental crown can be placed to change the color or shape and provide a more seamless appearance.
- Tooth bonding: tooth bonding is an easy and economical way to change the color of your teeth and address tooth darkening or bleach-resistant stains.
- Dental veneers: we can place custom porcelain veneers to enhance the color and appearance of your smile with permanent results.
