Teeth Whitening

If your smile has become discolored, has lost its luster, or is making you look older than you are, teeth whitening can be a simple solution for you. Dr. Dao offers a take-home whitening treatment that provides a noticeably whiter smile.

Dr. Dao will make whitening trays just for you, and then provide you with the professional grade whitening gel to utilize at home. You will be instructed on how to use the whitening system, as well as how often it should be used in order to get the results you want.

Some patients do multiple shorter treatments during the day, while others may wear the trays overnight. The good news is the timing is up to you. Sine you have the supplies at home; there is no need to whiten on someone else’s schedule.

In order to maintain the whitest teeth possible, it is important to be aware of how teeth discolor. Many things can cause staining or discoloration.  It is normal for teeth to dull with age, but there are also avoidable risk factors such as consuming foods and drinks that can stain.  The main culprits of a lackluster or yellowed smile are tea, coffee, red wine, and tobacco.  Fortunately, teeth whitening is one of the most cost-effective and quickest ways to take your smile from blah to beaming.

How long will the results last?

The lasting effects vary from patient to patient. It is important to avoid staining agents after your treatment in order to maintain longer lasting results.  Some patients whiten their teeth on a regular basis in order to keep their smile rejuvenated regularly. Your color preference and lifestyle will determine the number of treatments you require.  We would be happy to talk with you about regular upkeep and maintenance.
