Staining can occur for many reasons, including smoking or tobacco use. Your teeth can also become stained by regularly eating certain foods and beverages. Teeth also start to naturally darken as you age.
There are several whitening treatments available for purchase, however, professional whitening is generally safer and more effective.
Applicator kits are intended to be “one size fits all” which can result in them fitting uncomfortably in your mouth. Whitening gels included with this type of product can sometimes be too abrasive or can leak because of poor fitting trays.
For these reasons, you may want to choose professional whitening instead.
At Watkins Family Dental, we make custom trays that you use in the comfort of your own home, on your schedule. In as little as 30 minutes, you can brighten your smile, and be free to continue on with your day.
Dr. Watkins maintains privileges at William Newton Memorial Hospital in Winfield, Kansas. This allows certain dental cases to be completed under general anesthesia. Some examples of cases that benefit from this treatment option include children that need several restorations completed at once, and fearful patients in need of wisdom teeth extractions.
