Has your smile lost its luster over the years? You are not alone. Over time, your teeth will naturally start to darken as your enamel becomes weaker, causing the dentin to become more exposed. However, the foods and drinks you consume, your lifestyle choices, and oral hygiene habits can accelerate the rate of discoloration. To restore a bright smile, do not turn to ineffective over-the-counter products. Instead, schedule an appointment with Dr. Meredith G. Davis for professional teeth whitening in Richardson.
Now, over-the-counter whitening products are widely available and come in many different forms. If you have given a few a try, you were probably left feeling disappointed because you did not achieve any real results. This is because they do not contain professional-strength whitening agents. The only way to get the lasting, noticeable results that you want is with your dentist in Richardson, Dr. Davis.
If you are ready to turn back the hands of time to get a whiter smile, you can get the results that you want in just one day. After performing an initial consultation, Dr. Davis will determine the cause of your discoloration to create a comprehensive treatment plan.
After applying a protective barrier to your lips and gums, a highly-concentrated whitening agent is applied to your teeth. A special light is used to activate the whitening agents, allowing it to deeply penetrate the enamel. The light will be used for an average of three fifteen-minute intervals. In about an hour, your teeth will be several shades whiter with results that will last.
If your schedule does not allow for an in-office treatment, you can get the results you want at home. Dr. Davis provides a take-home kit that allows you to get professional quality results around your schedule.
You will be provided with custom-fit whitening trays to ensure even and consistent results. In addition, you are given the professional-grade whitening agents. You will use the kit at home every day for about two weeks. After just a few days, you will begin to see stubborn stains fade as your teeth become several shades whiter.
After your whitening treatment, your results will last with the right aftercare. In addition to maintaining your oral hygiene and regular dental visits, it is best to limit your contact with stain-causing foods and drinks, like coffee and tea. If you cannot avoid them, rinse your mouth with water or brush your teeth afterward. You will also want to stop using tobacco products to prevent new stains from developing.
If tooth discoloration has caused your confidence to dull, you can restore a bright white smile. Dr. Davis will evaluate your stains and discuss your preferences to create a treatment plan that caters to your individual needs.
