Teeth Whitening in Circle Pines

Teeth are supposed to be white. However, that may no longer be the color you see when you look at your smile in a mirror. Chances are your family, friends and co-workers have also noticed that your smile has become dull and yellowed. Fortunately, there is a relatively simple solution. You can have your teeth professionally whitened. At Circles Pines Dental, we offer both in-office whitening and a take-home system so you can choose the process that works best for you.

The Reasons for a Yellowed Smile

Teeth aren’t actually perfectly white. Everyone’s smile leans slightly toward a yellow, gray or brown hue. With age, this shading can become more pronounced. However, the main reason your smile darkens is because of the foods and beverages you consume day-in and day-out. Think about all of the deeply colored foods and beverages you enjoy: blueberries, carrots, tomatoes, coffee, red wine and cola are only a few. All of these can stain your teeth over time.

Other factors that can impact the color of your teeth include:

Stains can be either extrinsic—restricted to the enamel surface of teeth—or intrinsic, in which case they’ve penetrated the dentin layer that lies below the enamel. Similarly, bleeding inside the tooth from a traumatic injury can cause discoloration.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

We know that there are many whitening products sold on the shelf at your supermarket or pharmacy. But that’s the problem—you can’t know how long they’ve been sitting on the shelf. With time, whitening ingredients weaken. However, you can be confident that the products we use are fresh and full strength in order to give you the most dazzling results.

Our in-office teeth whitening treatment is ideal if you need to transform your smile quickly. While you sit back in the dentist’s chair, one of our dental assistants applies professional grade bleaching gel to your teeth to power away stains and discoloration. In just about an hour, you’ll see dramatic results.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

If you’re not in a hurry and would prefer to treat your teeth in the privacy of your own home, then we offer a take-home system, as well. With this, we’ll take impressions of your teeth in order to give your custom-fitted mouth trays. Just fill the trays each night with the whitening solution we provide and wear them for the prescribed length of time.
