A sensational smile leaves a lasting impression. Professional teeth whitening from Harris Dental in Phoenix can dramatically improve your appearance and give you a boost in self-confidence.
Our teeth often turn yellow or gray as we age. The things we eat and drink, such as colored sodas, coffee and red wine, contribute to the staining.
Most people know that smoking is not only bad for our lungs, but can also discolor our teeth. There are even some medications that can impact tooth color.
If you are considering having your teeth whitened, you must first choose which method to use. At Harris Dental, we enjoy discussing treatment options with our patients.
At-home whitening treatments usually consist of trays filled with whitening solution. It generally takes 7-14 days to achieve 3-6 shades lighter. Brush-on teeth gels and whitening strips take up to 30 days to achieve results. Whitening toothpaste may lighten superficial stains but often provides no change in the appearance of teeth.
All of the whitening methods may cause tooth pain or sensitivity, but this usually goes away in a few days. If you have crowns, porcelain veneers, or dental bonding, it is essential to speak with your dentist before choosing a whitening method.
