Everyone loves a bright smile!
Teeth whitening is a very common procedure performed here at Weideman Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics. This is because we believe that everyone feels more confident and beautiful with a brighter smile. Professional whitening treatment is safer and more effective than store-bought alternatives. We make custom fitting trays for each individual; our material is upgraded and we can monitor your progress. You, too, can experience the wonderful benefits of whiter teeth!
Our at-home whitening system involves the use of mild to moderate whitening gel that is placed in a custom fit tray. We will take an impression of your teeth and custom make your trays right here in the office. The custom fit provides more effective results and the gel is stronger that over-the-counter products.
How Your Teeth Stain
There are two types of staining: extrinsic and intrinsic. Intrinsic stains occur when the inner structure of the tooth, called dentin, darkens or yellows over time. This type of stain is the result of medication, inheritance or trauma to the teeth. Stains that are inside the tooth do not respond to whitening or “bleaching” solutions.
The extrinsic or outer layer of teeth is made of porous enamel and picks up stains depending on what we eat. Extrinsic stains are usually the result of pigmented foods and beverages. Here is a partial list of items that may stain your teeth:
