Perfectly white teeth mean a lot of things in our society. According to mountains of research, people with pristine white smiles are usually judged as attractive, intelligent, and professional by their peers, and in a world that is built on first impressions, having the right smile is more important than ever. If your teeth are looking a bit stained or discolored, then the team at Green Mountain Dental can help restore their youthful glow with our professional whitening treatments. Whether in-office or at-home, we can help you eliminate even the most stubborn stains, leaving cloud-white enamel to show the world.
If you’re interested in having your teeth whitened, then the first thing we will do is try to determine what caused your teeth to discolor in the first place. Was it because of a love of coffee, wine, tea, or tobacco? Was it because of natural aging or genetics? If so, then professional whitening will probably be exactly what you need to get the results you want.
However, if your teeth are stained due to medication use, such as tetracycline, then they will likely not respond to traditional bleaching. Fortunately, these teeth can be whitened using other treatments such as porcelain veneers or direct bonding.
Once we have figured out that bleaching would work for your teeth, we’ll provide you with your own take-home kit that will consist of custom-made mouth trays and a bleaching gel much stronger than anything you can buy at the store. You’ll simply be instructed to use the kit daily for about two weeks to get complete results.
If you still want your smile to be even whiter after this, than we can use in-office Zoom!® Whitening to take their shade to the next level. We find that this more conservative approach enables us to reliably improve the appearance of the teeth while mitigating the increased sensitivity that is so common with whitening.
