As people age, it is common for our teeth to become discolored. While age is part of the reason, teeth also stain due to smoking and drinking everyday beverages, such as coffee and tea. Teeth whitening offers one of the easiest and least invasive ways to begin your smile makeover journey.
At Delaware Dental Studio, our Wilmington patients have experienced great results with our teeth whitening procedures. Dr. Lynn Fee is an expert cosmetic dentist and has multiple ways for whitening your teeth that will result in your teeth having a natural, whiter appearance.
Our Wilmington dentists recommend people have their teeth whitened before having other dental procedures performed. When a porcelain veneer, bridge, or dental crown is created in a dental lab, they are created to match the shade of your other teeth. If your surrounding teeth are yellow, these dental restorations will be created to match that shade of yellow. But if your surrounding teeth are white, the dental restoration will match this white.
Most people are candidates for teeth whitening. The shade of white you desire, however, will instruct whether or not teeth whitening procedures can get you there. Some dark teeth are more resistant to whitening procedures. Teeth that are dark gray or have discoloration within the tooth are more resistant to whitening. At Delaware Dental Studio, there are various tooth whitening procedures that will whiten your teeth even if you have dark teeth.
On the rare occasion, the stains are too embedded and strong for teeth whitening to be effective. When this occurs, there are other dental procedures available to you. We offer our Wilmington patients porcelain veneers, which are placed on the surface of the teeth to cover dark stains, as well as dental bonding that can cover up minor stains.
Over-the-counter teeth whitening is a viable option for some people. Store-bought whitening is ideal for people with minimal staining and those who are looking to only whiten their teeth by a couple of shades. It is not a great option for many other people because over-the-counter teeth whitening uses diluted whitening ingredients and are not custom designed for your specific teeth – they are going for a one size, one whitening formula fits all approach.
At Delaware Dental Studio, our Wilmington dentist uses teeth whitening systems that have more concentrated bleaching solutions that can lighten teeth several more shades than over-the-counter whitening. In fact, our proprietary professional whitening formula can whiten your teeth by eight shades or more versus only approximately two shades with store bought whitening. We recommend people in Wilmington schedule an appointment with our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Lynn Fee, to understand the various whitening procedures we offer.
