As people age their teeth often grow duller and may develop stains or discolorations, these are not attributes that most of us want associated with our smile. Whether from food particles being absorbed into the enamel, medications, beverages, smoking, or other causes teeth that are no longer white can ruin your appearance and, if you let them, ruin your self-confidence. Teeth whitening from our 47150 dental office at Spring Family Dental can help reverse tooth discoloration.
Teeth whitening removes the brown and yellow staining on teeth. Our full-service dental practice utilizes professional whitening technologies to remove these stains. The most commonly used whitening technique at our 47150 dental office is teeth bleaching. The teeth are subjected to a chemical process that lightens the color. This procedure can be performed in our offices or by the patient at home using the materials we provide. Professional chemical bleaching differs from over-the-counter whitening kits because our dentists make a customized mouth tray, which holds the correct amount of whitening solution securely against the teeth for the prescribed length of time ensuring that the teeth are properly exposed to the whitening solution. It generally takes two to three weeks to finish the home whitening program, with a follow-up visit to our office. The results can last a year or more depending on your personal habits.
