Brighten Your Smile with Teeth Whitening in Summerlin
If you have lackluster teeth that are visibly stained or yellowing, you might be living a tight-lipped, relatively expressionless life. But we've got a solution that will have you smiling confidently in no time. Teeth whitening or bleaching is one of the most popular areas of cosmetic dentistry. Even subtle changes in brightness can make you look years younger.
Several factors can contribute to the darkening or staining of teeth, including the effects of aging, certain foods and beverages, smoking, and some medications. Dr. West provides in-office and at-home teeth whitening options and can help you determine what's right for you based on your specific circumstances and goals.
Biolase Epic Laser Whitening
Biolase Epic laser is an ideal solution for full-mouth, in office whitening procedure with an average brightening difference of 4-6 shades in an hour of treatment time. The entire treatment can be completed in a single visit so you will go home with a brighter smile after just one appointment. Patients who have received this laser treatment have reported no sensitivity after their visit.
What Causes Tooth Discoloration?
Over time, enamel can change color. Many things can cause teeth to become discolored. For example aging, trauma to the teeth, illness, medications such as tetracycline, and of course exposure to certain foods and beverages can darken and stain our natural teeth. Tobacco products can also discolor enamel.
If your teeth are discolored, laser teeth whitening may be the answer. Until now, the most popular method for whitening our teeth has been the use of custom-made take-home whitening trays. Teeth bleaching is one of the most conservative and cost-effective dental treatments to enhance your smile. Whiter teeth give you a more youthful appearance and improve your confidence.
Maintaining Your White Smile
Newly whitened teeth may absorb stains more easily. To keep your teeth white as long as possible avoid using tobacco and stain-causing beverages such as tea, coffee, red wine, berries and even spaghetti sauce for several days after whitening.
The ability to turn a dull smile into a dazzling one, on one visit, is nothing short of amazing!
At-Home Teeth Whitening Treatment
Some of our patients prefer the convenience of whitening at home. Dr. West offers Opalite at-home whitening products and will walk you through the process before sending you home with the custom trays and gel.
