Professional Dental Whitening in Akron, OH
If you have discolored or stained teeth, you may want to consider having your teeth whitened professionally. Professional whitening at Eberhardt Dentistry can get your teeth up to eight shades whiter in only one visit and is more effective than whitening strips or other at-home teeth whitening kits.
Why Do Teeth Stain?
Stains and discoloration can fall into two different categories: intrinsic and extrinsic. Extrinsic stains only impact your teeth’ surface, while intrinsic stains are ones that occur below the surface and are harder to remove. The most common causes of teeth staining and discoloration are:
- Tobacco use
- Soft drinks, tea, and coffee
- Nerve degeneration
- Too much fluoride
- Poor oral hygiene
If your teeth are discolored or have stains, and at-home whitening kits have not given you the results you desire, give our office a call to set up a teeth whitening consultation.
What to Expect With Professional Teeth Whitening
Our office uses a special whitening gel that activates with the use of a laser. Our professional dental staff will first protect your lips and gums, then apply the appropriate amount of gel to your teeth. Afterward, a laser is used to activate the whitening agent, leaving your teeth up to eight times whiter in only one visit.
After your whitening, you will want to make sure to avoid sugary drinks and foods for at least a day. It would be best if you also avoided smoking, as this will quickly stain your teeth again. As always, follow proper oral hygiene to keep your teeth looking bright and healthy.
