Are you searching for ways to improve the appearance of your teeth? Dr. Marco Gutierrez may recommend teeth whitening! Teeth whitening works to lighten the stains and discolorations caused by foods, drinks, tobacco use, medication, poor dental hygiene, age, and other factors so that you can once again smile with confidence. There are several options you can use to brighten the color of your teeth, including take-home whitening treatments and whitening toothpaste and mouthwash.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
Our dentist provides take-home whitening trays so that you can professionally whiten your smile in the comfort of your own home. When you receive an at-home whitening treatment, we will take impressions of your teeth, which will then be used to create a custom whitening tray. When you return home, simply place your whitening gel into the tray and wear the trays as directed. Over the course of several weeks, you will see a noticeable improvement in the color of your teeth.
Whitening Toothpaste Mouthwash
Whitening mouthwashes and toothpastes are among the least expensive and most convenient of whitening options available. These products are designed to remove surface stains from your teeth using mild abrasives. Unlike professional whitening treatments, whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes do not lighten the actual color shade of your teeth, and you may not see visible results for some time. Our dentist may recommend a combination of professional whitening trays followed by whitening toothpastes and mouthwash to help maintain your newly-whitened smile.
