Are you a professed coffee lover? Do your evenings often consist of enjoying a bottle of red wine with a friend? If so, then your smile may have become a bit dull and discolored over the years. That’s okay! Our St. Peters, MO, dentist, Dr. Melissa Smith, has just the teeth whitening treatment you need to turn that smile around.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

This is often the most popular way to whiten a smile because it offers a stronger, more effective whitening gels over anything you could ever find over-the-counter. Since our St. Peters cosmetic dentist has received special training, he can safely use this powerful whitening gel to give you the results you want in no time.

When you get professional in-office teeth whitening you’ll expect extremely fast results. In fact, no other system will be able to provide the same significant change in the brightness of your teeth as quickly. Usually in just one session (depending on the severity of your dental stains) teeth can become up to 10 shades whiter in just a one-hour treatment.

When it comes to professional chairside whitening there are some things you should know:

  • No whitening system (no matter how strong) will be able to tackle dental stains that are internal. Whitening is only meant for external stains, or stains caused by the foods and drinks you consume. Yellow stains respond best to whitening treatment.
  • Teeth whitening will only work on natural tooth structures.
  • Results can last a couple of years, but this really depends on how well you care for your smile. Those who get teeth whitening will want to limit enjoying stain-causing foods and drinks. You’ll also want to maintain good oral hygiene and visit us every six months for professional cleanings.

Just because you love coffee doesn’t mean that your smile has to show it. If you want to find out if you are an ideal candidate for whitening treatment then call our St. Peters, MO dental office today.
