If you have stained teeth, you may feel embarrassed about your smile. We understand, and also offer a unique treatment option, or options, to help. In today’s blog, your Kansas City, MO, dentist will look at three different options for removing teeth stains, and also explain what steps can be taken to keep your teeth brighter for longer periods!


With our on-the-go option, you can whiten your smile from home on your own schedule. We will provide a set of disposable trays that contain a special material that adapt to your smile and fit comfortably. The trays will be filled with a powerful bleaching gel that comes in fun flavors like mint or melon. The trays ensure even results, and prevents saliva from diluting it too. For many, a smile brightened by several shades is possible in just a week!

Custom Trays

We also have an option to address more advanced stains, and also prevent tooth sensitivity. The trays will be custom-fitted for your smile, ensuring they fit comfortably and provide even, stunning results. Again, we will have a powerful gel that contains flavors like mint and melon. The trays will be worn for about 30 to 45 minutes a day, and the gel will break up stains so you obtain a smile brightened by several shades in as little as one to two weeks.

In-Office Option

We also have a powerful office-based option, one that provides a brighter smile and significant results in only one visit. We will place a protective covering over your lips and gums, and the apply the powerful bleaching gel to the teeth. We don’t need to use a hot, uncomfortable light to activate the gel, instead the gel is chemically-activated. Your teeth will be whitened by several shades in only one sitting, perfect if you need results fast before a big event or job interview.

Keep Your Teeth Bright

What can be done to keep your teeth bright following treatment? Well, routine care could help prevent major plaque buildup and other factors behind your discoloration. You should brush and floss daily, cut back on sugary foods and drinks, and also consume fewer beverages with dark pigments, such as coffee, soda, red wine, and tea. We also suggest you avoid tobacco products too, and see us for a dental cleaning every six months.
