Brighten Your Smile with Farmington Teeth Whitening
If you like the shape and condition of your teeth but not the color, consider professional teeth whitening. Dr. Metzger offers take-home trays for gradual bleaching.
Teeth whitening lifts stains and discolorations caused by foods, beverages, medications, tobacco, and the aging process. Specially formulated bleaching gel penetrates the upper-most layers of teeth to erase stains and reveal brilliantly white smiles. Natural tooth structure remains unchanged.
Home Use Teeth Whiteners
We create customized bleaching trays for you instead. Take-home bleaching can be used in the privacy of your home on your own schedule. We recommend that you wear your custom take-home trays daily for ten days to two weeks for optimal results.
If you’ve had dental work done in your mouth or bleaching and whitening can’t get your teeth as white as you’d like, you should talk to our team about whitening your teeth. Dr. Metzger may recommend bonding, a procedure where a long-lasting, tooth-colored composite resin is placed on the surface of the tooth and shaped to mask imperfections, such as discoloration. Another alternative may be veneers, a service where a thin layer of porcelain, resin, or other material is applied to the tooth surface to change the color of your teeth. Crowns are also possible, a tooth-shaped restoration that completely covers the natural tooth to just below the gum line. To find out which one is best for you, contact our office.
If your teeth are sensitive to bleaching, Dr. Metzger may recommend a dentifrice or whitening toothpaste. These contain chemical or polishing agents to remove stains gently from the surface of your teeth. While your teeth won’t be as white as if you used a bleaching system, whitening toothpaste is safe, easy to use, and can be purchased over the counter.
