Try Our Professional Teeth Whitening Kit

When you have dental discoloration, you could feel embarrassed. But instead of hiding your smile from the world, why not seek professional treatment? With cosmetic dentistry, we can offer professional teeth whitening to brighten smiles by several shades! In today’s blog, your Prairie Village, KS, dentist talks about our take-home teeth whitening kit.

The Causes of Your Teeth Stains

What causes our teeth to develop unsightly stains? For some, this could be due to plaque buildup, a sticky layer that makes stains more visible. The layers are often caused by factors like a diet high in sugar and starch and a lack of proper brushing and flossing. You could also develop discoloration due to consuming beverages with dark pigments, such as red wine, tea, soda, and coffee. A lack of professional cleanings every six months could be a factor too. Our team will carefully examine your smile so we understand the causes of your teeth stains, allowing us to choose the most appropriate treatment option.

Our Take-Home Whitening Kit

For many patients, we can help with a take-home teeth whitening treatment. Our team will create a custom set of plastic trays that fit over your teeth. We then send these home with you, along with multiple plastic syringes of a powerful bleaching gel. At home, the gel is added to the trays and they are worn for a set amount of time, usually between 30 and 45 minutes a day. The trays ensure the gel is distributed evenly across your smile and prevent saliva from diluting the gel. The total treatment time usually takes about one to two weeks, and your teeth could be multiple shades brighter. The trays are easy to use, clean, and store, and any remaining gel can be used with them for touch-ups in the months to come.

Keeping Your Teeth Shining

What can be done to ensure your new results truly last? You should cut back on how much sugar and starch is in your diet, and make time to see our team for a checkup and professional cleaning every six months. At home, you need to brush in the morning and then again at night for two minutes with a fluoride toothpaste and a toothbrush and with soft bristles. We also recommend you floss every evening before you brush that second time. If you have any questions about keeping your smile bright, or about our take-home teeth whitening kit, then contact our team today to learn more.
