Teeth Whitening Q & A
What causes teeth to become discolored?
When you first meet someone, people notice your smile — namely your teeth. Discolored teeth can make you feel self-conscious and even embarrassed.
Your teeth naturally discolor due to:
- Consuming certain foods and beverages regularly, such as tea, coffee, and red wine
- Tobacco use
- Certain antibiotics and other medications
- Trauma from a fall or blow to the mouth
Teeth whitening can’t correct all these discolorations, but it can be particularly effective on teeth discolored due to diet, tobacco, or aging.
Why is professional teeth whitening superior?
While over-the-counter teeth-whitening products, such as toothpastes, strips, and trays, are readily available, these products contain low concentrations of whitening solutions, so they take a long time to make an impact — if they make one at all.
At Celebrity Smiles, you get fast, reliable whitening results with medical-grade products made by Venus White Max®.
What take-home teeth whitening options are available?
If you want a more gradual whitening process, a take-home kit is a good choice.
Celebrity Smiles offers the Venus White® Pro, consisting of trays filled with a whitening gel. You wear these custom-fit trays for short periods every day up to 14 days. At-home whitening kits come with a carbamide peroxide whitening gel in concentrations of 16, 22, or 35%. The expert staff determines the grade that’s right for you. At-home whitening can make your teeth more than eight shades whiter than your current smile.
What if my teeth won’t whiten with in-office or at-home methods?
Teeth damaged by trauma or due to antibiotics sometimes won’t whiten with in-office solutions or at-home trays. The team at Celebrity Smiles can help you with crowns or veneers for teeth that are stubbornly stained or discolored.
If you’re ready to flash a brighter, whiter smile, call Celebrity Smiles for an appointment and to learn more about the teeth-whitening options available.
