Tooth stains can develop for a variety of reasons, some of which include:
It is important that we understand where your discoloration and stains come from so that we recommend the most effective and reliable teeth whitening solution for your individual needs.
When arriving for your appointment, Dr. Redmond will begin by examining your smile and preparing it for treatment. Placing a guard around your lips and gums, this will protect your soft tissues from the professional-grade bleaching gel that is used to remove stains from your teeth. Once in place, he will begin by placing the gel on each individual tooth and using a special UV light, which will penetrate the tooth enamel and blast away stains that live on the surface and deep down within the tooth’s layers.
If necessary, the gel will be applied multiple times to achieve desired results. Most patients can expect to see a brighter smile in around an hour.
Should you opt to whiten your teeth at home, your cosmetic dentist in Sylacauga will take impressions of your smile and have them sent off to a dental lab where technicians will create your custom whitening trays. Once they are ready, Dr. Redmond will provide you with your trays and enough of the high-grade bleaching gel to use at home. It is important that you follow the instructions he provides, as this will tell you how long to wear your trays each day.
After about two weeks, you will find that your smile is noticeably whiter.
