What Is Teeth Whitening?
Sometimes brushing your teeth and flossing every day is not enough to prevent discoloration. Over time, you may notice your smile has lost its shine or has become more yellow than it used to be. That’s why our professional teeth whitening is designed to instantly brighten your smile in just one appointment with Dr. Gabriel. Our whitening products break down stains into small particles that are flushed from your teeth, with the result being a renewed, confident smile.
If you suffer from discolored teeth or have noticed changes in your smile, professional teeth whitening could be right for you. Our Wexford office is dedicated to working with you to decide the best treatment to remedy any dental issues you are experiencing.
Causes of Stained Teeth
There are several factors that can contribute to the staining, yellowing, or discoloration of your teeth. While professional teeth whitening services can reverse these effects, it’s still important to understand the culprits of this condition.
Some of the causes of stained teeth include:
- Poor Oral Hygiene: Not having proper oral hygiene can cause your teeth to discolor. Dentists everywhere recommend brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing daily to help avoid natural staining that happens without care. Additionally, you should visit Dr. Gabriel at our Wexford office for regular biannual checkups.
- Tobacco: Smoking and chewing tobacco can rapidly increase the rate at which your teeth begin to yellow or become discolored, with ingredients such as nicotine further contributing to this.
- Certain Foods & Drinks: Some of the most common staining agents include coffee, tea, red wine, and soda. Berries, pomegranates, and soy sauce are also known to stain your teeth.
- Aging: Your teeth enamel will wear away as you age, making your teeth more prone to staining and discoloration.
LED-Assisted Whitening Technology
Our Wexford office provides LED-assisted technology to whiten your teeth and effectively remove any damage your smile may have. While many patients believe that store-bought strips are the most cost-effective whitening solution, this isn’t the case. Over-the-counter solutions take longer and won’t remove tough, year-old stains that are beneath the teeth surface.
By scheduling an whitening appointment with one of our expert dentists, you can leave our office with teeth that look and feel brand new. Call our office at (724) 935-2100 to schedule your consultation and learn more about our LED-assisted technology.
Teeth Whitening Process
You can brighten your teeth through our whitening treatment in just two simple steps:
Dr. Gabriel will first apply our gentle whitening gel onto your teeth. This product is specifically designed for sensitive teeth and will dissolve any stains you may have, brightening your teeth by several shades in a short amount of time.
We’ll activate the gel by using our state-of-the-art LED mouthguard, allowing the whitening solution to penetrate deeper into your teeth and eliminate years of discoloration. LED-assisted technology is the leading whitening method recommended by dentists everywhere for its effectiveness and sensitivity. We’re proud to provide our patients with this proven service here at our Wexford office.
For patients who have a busier schedule, Dr. Gabriel can provide them with take-home whitening treatment kits so they can achieve similar results with their teeth.
Teeth Whitening Candidacy
The best candidates for LED-assisted professional teeth whitening treatment are patients who have healthy gums and teeth without fillings or restorations. During your initial consultation with Dr. Gabriel at our Wexford office, he’ll conduct a full evaluation of your teeth to determine whether you’re a candidate for the teeth whitening procedure.
If your smile has yellow tones, you may be more likely to respond to treatment compared to patients whose teeth are discolored by decay.
