Teeth Whitening Dentist
Do the stains and discolorations on your teeth make it embarrassing to smile? Brighten and whiten your smile with professional teeth whitening in El Paso, Texas!
Your teeth may become dull, stained or discolored over time due to a variety of factors. These factors include:
- Poor oral hygiene
- Foods and drinks that stain
- Illness and medications
- Smoking and other tobacco use
- Fluorosis (excessive consumption of fluoride)
- The natural aging process
While many over-the-counter whitening products are available, the most effective way to lighten the color of your teeth is with professional teeth whitening. This simple cosmetic dental treatment can enhance your smile in as little as one appointment and is available as both an in-office treatment and a take-home treatment.
Both in-office and take-home whitening use a powerful whitening gel that is applied to the surface of your teeth. This gel works to break down stains and discolorations to lighten your smile. In-office whitening uses a special light to activate the gel and dramatically whiten your smile in just one appointment. Take-home whitening takes longer, with you applying the gel to your teeth using custom whitening trays and the results appearing gradually over time. When you visit Silva Dentistry, our cosmetic dentist and team will work with you to determine which type of whitening will help you achieve your goals.
Please remember that teeth whitening is not a permanent solution. You may need to touch up your smile from time to time in order to ensure that it remains bright and beautiful.
