Teeth Whitening in Northborough, MA
Has your bright, beautiful smile become dull and discolored? At Children’s Dentistry of Northborough, we focus on protecting your oral health, but we also know it’s important that you look your best.
A sparkling white smile boosts your confidence and allows you to interact comfortably with others. For your convenience, we offer professional in-office whitening and take-home kits that quickly renew a stained, discolored smile, giving you a healthier, more youthful appearance.
Reasons for Teeth Staining
Do you wonder what happened to that fresh, bright smile you had when you were little? When you were a child, your teeth were bright white because the surface of your young tooth enamel was hard and intact.
As you age, your teeth become porous as they develop tiny micro cracks that attract stains and food debris. Stains and discoloration can also be the result of inadequate oral hygiene, smoking, and certain medications like tetracycline.
Basics of Professional Teeth Whitening
You may have tried whitening products purchased at your drug store and been disappointed by the results. This is not really surprising when you consider that these generic kits are not customized for your needs.
Unlike generic treatments, professional teeth whitening offered at Children’s Dentistry of Northborough can be personalized to fit your needs. As experienced professionals, we can easily adjust the concentration of whitening gel to suit your needs. We will determine what’s appropriate for you based on your sensitivity level, degree of staining, and desired results.
In-Office Teeth Whitening: Based on the degree and type of staining, we can tailor your treatment specifically for you. One of the advantages of in-office teeth whitening is that we can achieve remarkable results in one appointment
We start with a thorough dental cleaning to make sure your teeth are free of plaque that can inhibit whitening. Next, we protect your gums and lips so they don’t come into contact with the whitening gel.
The gel is carefully applied to your teeth to cover all surfaces evenly, then set with a special curing light. It may take a day or two to see the full results, but you can expect to see whitening of up to eight shades.
Professional Take-Home Whitening: Take-home whitening kits available at our Northborough dental office give you the freedom to control the pace of whitening in the privacy of your home.
Using accurate dental impressions, we create your whitening trays to fit perfectly over your teeth. This allows for even coverage of all surfaces of your teeth, resulting in a consistently beautiful smile.
We will send you home with your personalized tray, whitening gel, and instructions for use. Simply wear the trays every day until you achieve the desired results, usually about two weeks. You can maintain your beautiful new smile by repeating treatment every six months.
