July 8, 2019

If you have serious or mild discoloration, did you know we have an option that could remove your stains in as little as one to two hours? With our in-office procedure, we offer smiles brightened by several shades in just one visit. In today’s blog, we’re going to discuss this treatment option, as well as the teeth whitening special we’re offering our Kansas City, MO, patients!

The Advantages Over Store Bought Options

If you go to the store, you’re likely to find a number of products offering a whiter smile, from strips and toothpastes to special rinses. While these do brighten teeth, they often cannot offer the same dramatic results as professional treatment systems. In fact, the results they do offer rarely last as long either. For some people, store bought strips could also increase the risk of tooth sensitivity, causing discomfort. For dramatic results that can last several months, you should consider seeing your dentist for professional treatment.

The In-Office Procedure

The treatment will begin with the dentist placing a protective covering over your lips and gums. Next, we apply the bleaching gel to the teeth. Once we do, a special light will be used to activate the bleaching gel, breaking up stains and brightening the teeth. We repeat the process as necessary to brighten smiles by several shades. The entire process takes about one to two hours to complete, and offers a whiter smile and a reduced risk of tooth sensitivity.

Teeth Whitening Specials

We’re currently offering our Kansas City, MO, patients two different teeth whitening specials. The first is in-office whitening for $199 per arch, which is Buy One, Get One pricing! For patients who started their clear aligner orthodontic treatment after January 1st, we’re offering free teeth whitening once they complete their treatment. For more details on either of these cosmetic specials, please contact our team today. We would love to help you achieve a brighter smile, and enjoy healthier smiles along the way.

Keeping Your Smile Bright

Once your treatment ends and you leave with a stunning smile, you may be wondering what you can do to keep your teeth bright? First, try to cut back on sugary foods and drinks, which promotes plaque buildup, a major factor in the appearance of teeth stains (as well as tooth decay and gum disease). Also, try to avoid drinks with dark pigments, such as tea, coffee, red wine, fruit juice, and soda, which stain the teeth. Be sure you brush your teeth twice daily for two minutes per session, and always floss before going to bed. Finally, make time to have your teeth cleaned every six months!
