Discover the many ways in which you can get that whiter smile.teeth whitening

A smile that is full of stains and discolorations can certainly be embarrassing, but there are so many options out there to help you achieve that whiter smile that you don’t have to live with yellowing, stained teeth. While teeth whitening will certainly offer you fast and effective results, our Grand Junction, CO, cosmetic dentists Dr. Brandon Berguin, Dr. Kira Funderburk and Dr. William Berguin are here to talk about the many ways in which you can address your dental stains.

Whitening Products

If you feel like your smile only needs a little boost then you may find the results you need through at-home whitening products. Whitening toothpastes and even at-home kits can be enough for those only looking to remove minor surface stains. Just make sure to always follow the directions. Of course, it’s necessary to acknowledge that most at-home methods won’t give you fast or dramatic results.

Professional Teeth Whitening

If you are dealing with serious dental stains caused by years of smoking or coffee drinking, then you’ve come to the right place. Our Grand Junction, CO, dentists are ready to help you tackle those stains and yellow teeth to get you a visibly whiter smile. There are two ways in which to do this: in-office whitening and at-home whitening. If you have severe stains and you want to get rid of them quickly then your best option is in-office whitening. Professional whitening actually changes the shade of your teeth. In as little as one session we could get your smile multiple shades whiter.

At-home whitening is also available. Our whitening kit uses customized whitening trays, which ensures more uniform and even whitening, while the whitening gel is stronger and provides better results in a shorter period of time than commercial whitening kits.

Dental Veneers

Sometimes the stains you have can’t be treated through professional teeth whitening. If stains are too severe, or are internal rather than external, then you will need to turn to other cosmetic options to hide these stains. These porcelain shells are often the best way to cover severe discolorations and other imperfections and to give you a more beautiful smile. Even if teeth whitening isn’t right for you, dental veneers could be.
