Who doesn’t want a brighter smile? After all, an attractive smile often means a better first impression when meeting someone new or attending a job interview. In order to help our Mansfield, TX, patients enjoy a brighter smile, we may recommend removing stains with a custom set of whitening trays. How do we create these trays and what should people expect from our professional whitening treatment?

Removing Stains From Home

First, we will take detailed impressions of your smile, which we will use to create a set of trays from plastic. Designed to fit comfortably, they will help cover your teeth evenly in the powerful bleaching gel we provide. When will send you home with the trays and gel, where you will wear them each day for between 30 and 45 minutes, obtaining a brighter smile in about one to two weeks. For some patients, their teeth will be brightened by multiple shades. The procedure is also designed to help reduce tooth sensitivity, which may occur with store bought systems.

An In-Office Alternative

In addition to our home-based solution, we also have an in-office procedure that can brighten teeth in just one to two hours. This option is great if you need a brighter smile quickly, for example, if you have a job interview coming up. The procedure involves placing a protective covering on the lips and gums and applying a bleaching gel to the teeth. A light will activate the gel and begin removing the stains from your teeth in just one sitting.

Keeping Your Pearly Whites Bright

If you receive our home-based treatment, you can keep your trays and gel for touch-ups down the road. In addition, changes to you daily routine might help you enjoy brighter teeth. For example, try to cut back on sugary food and drinks, which could promote plaque buildup and make stains more apparent. In addition, routine brushing and flossing could also reduce plaque buildup and help teeth stay bright. Other tips include reducing consumption of drinks with dark pigments, such as coffee, soda, tea, and red wine, and avoiding tobacco products, such as cigarettes, which also stain teeth. Routine checkups and cleanings also aid by removing plaque from your teeth to keep smiles bright.
