Brighten Your Smile at the Dental Office of Bryan Hill, DDS
Teeth withstand a lifetime of eating and drinking, which can dim their luster and detract from their appeal. Subtle changes in color are ongoing and lead to yellowed teeth that do not present you in your best light.
Dr. Bryan Hill provides teeth whitening treatments that lift stains and brighten tooth color. Serving people in Spokane and surrounding communities, Dr. Hill and his friendly team offer whitening, so you look and feel your best.
Causes and Cures of Tooth Discoloration
Tooth enamel is porous and can absorb the dark pigments found in many foods and beverages. Tobacco and certain medications also discolor teeth and detract from your smile’s appeal.
Professional whitening gels have the strength to brighten teeth safely and in minimal time. Carbamide peroxide breaks down the compounds that stain teeth and bleaches teeth enamel to give you the brightest smile possible. Whitening gels also contain potassium nitrate to reduce tooth sensitivity and fluoride, a mineral that strengthens tooth enamel.
Professional Teeth Whitening Provides Dramatic Results
Routine cleaning appointments can remove superficial stains with a thorough cleaning and polishing of teeth surfaces, but many patients include professional teeth-whitening treatments in their hygiene appointments to take their tooth color to a whole new level of brightness. Teeth whitening is also recommended before cosmetic treatments because enhancements like porcelain veneers or crowns are matched to the shade of surrounding teeth.
In-Office and At-Home Whitening Treatments are Available
Whitening gels can be applied directly onto teeth during an in-office dental appointment. Dr. Hill is careful to protect the sensitive gum tissues before applying the brightening agent. Treatment should last no longer than an hour, and you can expect to see tooth shade lighten by up to seven shades.
There are also take-home whitening kits that use customized trays to brighten teeth at your own pace and in the convenience of your own home. These are also used to help you maintain your bright smile.
