Smile Whitening

Just because you have a healthy smile, this does not mean it is the bright, white smile you’ve always wanted. Our teeth generally get more dark and become discolored as we get older. You are able to safely and effectively obtain that dazzling, white smile you have always wanted by way of personalized teeth whitening that we provide. Cosmetic smile whitening can take away discolorations from your teeth resulting from:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Tobacco
  • Food
  • Tartar

Within just one office visit at North Kansas City Dental you’ll have a whiter, youthful appearing smile once more.

Smile Whitening is a process whereby surface and internal stains are actually removed from each tooth. Elimination of the surface discolorations starts with getting your teeth thoroughly cleaned and also polished at the dental office located in North Kansas City. Next, peroxide gels will be applied to your teeth here at the dental office and at home utilizing custom molded plastic trays that we make for you. The gel travels through the tooth surface and into the inner layers of your teeth introducing oxygen which removes the discolorations.

Brown, orange and yellow hued blemishes usually are most effortlessly lightened, especially when they have developed with time. Gray and blue hued stains are usually significantly more challenging to reduce as is substantial tetracycline discoloration. Tetracycline was an antibiotic that, if given to young children when their permanent teeth are developing, will result in discoloration of those teeth in adult life. We offer a number of solutions in teeth whitening, which are quick and effective, non-invasive techniques sure to improve your confidence and self esteem and offer you a great smile. Soon after talking about your goals and expectations, Dr. Busch and Dr. VanYperen will recommend the lightening approach that is good for your smile, your current schedule as well as your spending budget.

It is necessary for you to understand that smile whitening agents only affect actual tooth structure (enamel, root surface and the underlying layer known as “dentin”). Any restorative substances (fillings, veneers or crowns) you may have in or over your teeth won’t be lightened. This means that right after your bleaching is done, any sort of restorations not the same shade as your new, whiter smile should be replaced.

Plenty of over-the-counter tooth whitening solutions are obtainable at your local store. Having said that, only the doctor can give you that prescription-grade smile whitening product which offers consistent, comfortable and sustainable final results.
