Why Are My Teeth Stained?
There are two main types of stains on teeth: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains occur on the surface of the teeth. They are typically caused by tobacco use or consumption of staining foods and beverages, like berries, wine, coffee, or dark sodas. These kinds of stains generally respond well to over-the-counter whitening kits and toothpaste.
Intrinsic stains, on the other hand, are why treatments such as GLO are required for some patients. These stains happen when staining molecules burrow in cracks in the enamel. Intrinsic discoloration may be the result of excessive fluoride consumption in childhood, the natural process of aging, or as a side effect of certain medications. They typically need to be removed with a professional teeth whitening treatment.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
In short, if you’re struggling with stains or discoloration in your smile, then you might be a good candidate for teeth whitening. To see if you qualify for this procedure, you can schedule an initial consultation with our team so we can determine if this is the best option for you. After evaluating your oral health and reviewing your dental history, we’ll offer you an in-office or at-home whitening procedure. Our team will also form a detailed treatment plan to make sure you understand how you can expect to achieve a whiter smile.
How Does Glo Teeth Whitening Work?
We can provide you with either an in-office or take-home GLO teeth whitening treatment. While both can effectively brighten your pearly whites, they do have several differences:
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
You can whiten your smile in the comfort of your home with our take-home option. We’ll give you custom trays along with professional-grade bleaching gel to wear for a designated time each day for two weeks. This will allow you to gradually enhance your smile until it’s several shades brighter!
In-Office Teeth Whitening
During this in-practice procedure, we’ll apply a safe and powerful bleaching gel directly to your teeth before inserting a prescribed mouthpiece. This device uses a specialized heat and LED light to trap whitening oxygen molecules against the teeth to brighten the shade of your smile. This typically takes about an hour to achieve quick and dramatic results.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Keeping your smile nice and bright requires maintenance on your part. For results that last, we suggest using an at-home kit for a touch-up about once a month, with a full in-office treatment every six months or so. This way, you can time it with your regular checkups and cleanings. That being said, if you notice that your pearly whites aren’t looking so bright anymore, you can increase the frequency of your touch-ups until your teeth reach a shade you can be proud of. Be sure to also practice proper dental hygiene, avoid dark-colored foods and drinks, and visit your dentist often to make the most of your brightened smile.
