3 Ways to a Whiter Smile

O'Fallon IL Teeth Whitening DentistsHaving brighter, whiter teeth can impact the way we feel about ourselves and the impression we have on other people. Thankfully having a whiter smile doesn’t have to be all that difficult - it just depends on what we want our final results to be and how dark our teeth already are.

Here are 3 great options to consider:

Professional Teeth Whitening

Our professional teeth whitening treatments can remove natural and accumulated stains from your tooth enamel in a safe, gentle manner. Most people see significant results of 5-7 shades. Since our teeth are porous, it is only natural for stain particles to build up just under the surface. Whitening treatments oxidize the stains, lifting them from the teeth, leaving whiter enamel behind. We offer different types of whitening, based on how severely your stain is and whether or not you currently experience any type of sensitivity.

Porcelain Veneers

Severe discoloration and enamel irregularities can be permanently corrected by placing beautiful porcelain veneers over the teeth. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain bonded over the front of your natural teeth - making it look as if you have a brand new smile. They never change color, so you can enjoy permanently whiter teeth with just routine hygiene and maintenance. Veneers require two appointments to complete, but give you years of beautiful smiles!

Preventive Dental Cleanings

Some people are much more prone to stain buildup than others. Having a professional dental cleaning every 6 months is a simple way to remove surface stains from things like coffee, tea, or even vitamins. Our hygienists will use gentle ultrasonic instruments and polishing tools to buff stain away.
