Even if oral hygiene is a high priority for you, as you age you’re probably going to notice some changes to the whiteness of your smile. Age isn’t the only culprit though – your teeth can also stain if you consume a lot of red wine or coffee, use tobacco products, deeply colored foods.
Professional teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental treatment offered at our Denver dental office because it’s fast and offers such dramatic results. Since the procedure is in such high demand, there are a lot of whitening treatments we can choose from.
We’ve chosen at-home teeth whitening for our patients because we believe that the repeated application of whitening gel over time produces superior results to a single in-office treatment.
Why Your Teeth Discolor
Tooth enamel may be the hardest substance in the human body, but it’s not indestructible. With years of wear and tear on your teeth, dental enamel gradually starts to erode, opening up microscopic holes that attract stains.
These tiny holes act like a sponge, absorbing the discoloring debris left behind by consuming quantities of stain-producing food and beverages like blackberries, coffee, tea, and red wine. Tobacco products cause dramatic staining over time. While whitening can help, if you want to maintain a bright and healthy smile, you should consider quitting smoking.
The Most Effective Whitening Treatment
While in-office treatments produce noticeable results, we’ve seen much better, longer-lasting whitening with our professional take-home kits. Take-home whitening kits are also more cost-effective than treatments done in a dental office.
Don’t confuse our professional at-home whitening treatments with generic over-the-counter products. First, Dr. Litvak can prescribe a whitening gel with a much higher concentration and which is much more effective than you can purchase at your local drug store.
Your kit also includes a customized whitening tray that is created using exact impressions of your teeth. Since the trays fit your teeth precisely, the whitening gel can evenly reach all surfaces for beautiful, consistent results.
When you’re ready to start whitening, simply fill your trays with our prescribed whitening gel and wear for about 30 to 60 minutes per day. In just a couple weeks, you’ll see a dramatic difference in the whiteness of your teeth and you’ll be able to smile again with confidence!
