Teeth WhiteningThe desire for a whiter, brighter smile is about more than just vanity. Of course, you want to look your best, but if your teeth are stained and discolored, they could be affecting more than just the cosmetic aspects of your smile. Studies have shown that getting rid of dental stains is at the top of the list of things people say they would improve and change about their smile, and it is not hard to see why. In addition to personal satisfaction and more confidence, the state of our teeth also affects the impressions we make on other people. The reality is that stained teeth are an inevitable part of life due to diet and lifestyle factors, genetics, and the natural aging process itself. But dull, less than perfect teeth do not have to be a way of life. The dentists at Wilmington Dental Associates in Wilmington, DE, recommend professional teeth whitening treatments to take the smile you have and turn it into the smile you want.

Professional Teeth Whitening in Wilmington, DE

Over the counter whitening products can help a little, but they are not as effective as professional treatments, and may contain abrasive ingredients that can contribute to enamel erosion. Teeth whitening treatments applied by a dentist can whiten your teeth by up to eight shades, and deliver natural looking and lasting results.

You can choose an in-office or take home treatment, both of which offer the same professional grade bleaching agents that are not available in the toothpaste and whitening strips and gels that you can buy over the counter. Both deliver the same high-quality results, but the take-home treatment allows you to apply the treatment in the comfort of your own home over the course of a few weeks. In-office treatments are typically applied in one appointment.
