Dental Expressions of Leawood Whitening Options

Tooth whitening is a sure way to brighten your smile and gain increased confidence in your overall appearance.  Many people are self conscious because their teeth have yellowed from smoking or drinking coffee.  Also, increase in overall age can cause wear in the enamel.  This wear can create the next layer (dentin) which is bright yellow to show through.  Many people wonder why their teeth have gotten more yellow with age.  The answer may be just an overall reduction in the enamel (whiter).

What is Tooth Whitening?

In our office we use a special mild gel, carbamide peroxide gel, over the period of 7-10 days, can drastically brighten your smile.  This is a take home system.  Custom made, soft plastic stents are made to allow you to wear without much trouble.  They are clear trays which can be worn for several hours or overnight.  Darker teeth may take longer.  There are also different strengths of the gel that can be given to you at the office.  We encourage brushing with a desensitizing toothpaste to decrease any sensitivity associated with tooth whitening.
