Make an Impact
At Cassell Dentistry, our office provides a wide range of cosmetic procedures designed to improve the look of your teeth but teeth whitening is one of the fastest, most cost-effective ways to give you a cleaner, brighter and even younger look. Whitening your teeth is a simple way to make a large impact on the look of your smile. We invite you to schedule a consultation to review and discuss how teeth whitening can remove your extrinsic stains. We offer in-office treatment or we can prescribe a take-home kit to do at your convenience.
Why would I need teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is done to remove surface stains and brighten your teeth. Every day our teeth are exposed to foods, drinks and outside elements that can stain. This constant exposure can cause their brightness to fade and stains to collect. A wide variety of foods and drinks we consume contain tannic acid which can cause darkening of the enamel. This includes drinks such as coffee, tea, and sodas, and foods like berries, chocolate, nuts, and many fresh fruits. Tomato-based and soy-based sauces also contain acid that darkens and stains.
Whitening your teeth allows you to remove the years of stains, often making people feel that their face has a younger appearance. Much like brightening a room with a new coat of paint, we can brighten your smile with a whiter smile.
Prescribed Whitening or Store Bought?
Many patients ask about the effectiveness of store-bought whitening products. Any product that contains peroxide will offer some level of whitening. Store-bought products are not allowed to contain levels that can be prescribed. Patients who choose to whiten their teeth with store bought products will get results, but it will take a longer period. Patients who want quick and controlled results will find having the work done through our office to be worth the cost.
