Veneers & Teeth Whitening
The team at East Market Family Dental loves when a patient feels good about their smile. Having a smile you are comfortable with improves your confidence and social interaction. At our practice, we offer many options to change the shape and color of your teeth to make you feel better about smiling. Let’s discuss a few of these techniques.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening has become a very common procedure in dental practices today. Our teeth are stained by foods and beverages and can often become unattractive to the patient. At East Market Family Dental, we offer several different ways to get your teeth the shade you want them.
We offer over-the-counter bleaching strips in our office. Bleaching strips are less expensive upfront and are good in patients that have a lot of sensitivity with other ways to bleach the teeth, and the strips we provide are professional strength.
Custom Bleaching Trays
Although slightly more expensive initially, we can fabricate custom trays at our office that you can use at home to get the bright results you’re looking for. Different concentrations of bleach are available, and during your appointment, Dr. Adam or Dr. Christina will determine the best concentration for you.
Bleach concentration is determined by a few factors. First, if you have a history of sensitive teeth, we will recommend a lesser concentration of bleach at first. Sometimes this concentration can be increased if the lower concentration is tolerable.
The second variable when determining the bleach concentration is the amount or type of stain. Deeper stains require a higher concentration of bleach to achieve the desired shade.
The advantages of custom trays are that they can be reused for several applications and are typically more effective in achieving the shade you desire. If you are bleaching with our custom trays and are experiencing sensitivity, discontinue the bleach and consult with Dr. Adam or Dr. Christina.
If you desire to change not only the shade but also the shape of your teeth, ceramic veneers are a great option. Veneers offer a minimally invasive way to make a very impactful change in your smile. With current ceramic development, only a very small amount of healthy tooth structure will need to be removed to prepare for the veneers.
