Tooth stains can affect your quality of life. You may feel embarrassed to smile or even speak because you don’t want people to see the stains on your tooth enamel. Some common causes of tooth stains include the daily consumption of certain beverages such as coffee, wine or cola. Smoking is also another common cause of tooth stains. Fortunately, our Potsdam general dentist provides cosmetic dental treatments that can reverse the effects of these stains and give you that bright smile you’ve always dreamed about.
As a new patient, our expert dentist will conduct a full and complete oral exam, as well as review your medical history to determine if you could benefit from an additional procedure. If our Potsdam general dentist finds that no other dental problems are present and that you’re a good candidate for teeth whitening, you will be given all the information you need to make an informed decision for yourself as to which type would be best for you.The term “tooth whitening” is a general term that refers to any of the many techniques that can be used to correct the discoloration of a patient’s teeth. Some of the techniques that can remove the brown and/or yellow staining one’s teeth include: chemical whitening, mild acid whitening, and abrasive teeth brightening and laser teeth whitening (the latest technique). If you have yellow or brown stained teeth, we recommend that you make an appointment with our Potsdam general dentist at Zysik Dental.
If you decide to teeth bleaching (to lighten teeth), our Potsdam general dentist at Zysik Dental could provide you with teeth whitening in our office or could provide you with all the materials and instructions to do it at home. If you choose the home option, our expert dentist will need to create a custom made mouth piece to ensure that the correct amount of whitening solution is used for proper exposure for effectiveness and safety purposes. The home treatment will be done daily for approximately 2-3 weeks. You will need to place the tray with the solution in your mouth for 2-3 hours (in some cases overnight) and will return to our expert dentist for a follow up visit. No matter which option you choose, our general dentist will provide you with the exceptional dental care you deserve and help you to obtain that beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
