Teeth Whitening An Overview
Looking for an instant smile makeover that can take years off of your appearance?
Professional teeth whitening can whiten your smile and brighten your look in the comfort of your own home. The custom take-home teeth whitening we offer will provide safe, more consistent and lasting results when compared to over the counter options. The process will take a couple of weeks using custom fit bleaching trays and professional grade gels.
Dr. Tufa will work with you to determine if professional teeth whitening is the best solution for your needs. There are certain types of tooth stains that are resistant to bleaching products and may need to be addressed with other cosmetic dental treatments.
Alternatives to Teeth Whitening
Tooth stains that are the result of certain medical conditions, medications or genetics can be resistant to bleaching products. In this situation, Dr. Tufa can work with you to address your cosmetic goals with an alternative treatment. Although often more costly than teeth whitening, an alternative cosmetic procedure to change the color of your teeth will last longer and can be customized to your appearance.
- Tooth bonding: Dr. Tufa is an experienced cosmetic dentist who can skillfully use tooth bonding to brighten the appearance of your smile.
- Porcelain veneers: placing high quality porcelain veneers can dramatically change the appearance of your smile.
- Dental crowns: if only one tooth is stained or darkened, placing a dental crown to match your smile can provide great results.
