The Three Best Cosmetic Dental Procedures for a Whiter Smile

white smile

It’s a dream – entering a room and stopping the conversation with a bold, beautiful smile. Many people, sadly, shy away from putting their best smile forward because they are self-conscious about discoloration. Unfortunately, most of the over-the-counter or drugstore whitening products are not the answer. These products contain harsh chemicals that may whiten your teeth for a short period of time, but they also permanently damage the enamel of your teeth – leaving you with much larger dental issues than just discolored teeth.

At Mile High Dental & Implant Centers, we confidently recommend healthy alternatives for teeth whitening. You’ll be excited to know that teeth whitening can be obtained safely, affordably, and – depending on the service you choose – in as little as one visit.

A Whiter Smile at Home

Our dentists can recommend an excellent choice for eliminating those yucky stains caused by coffee, tea, wine, or other substances. Our take-home bleaching trays are a much safer alternative to the over-the-counter whitening strips, toothpaste, and even lights. These trays are part of the Bright Rewards program. All you have to do is wear the trays for 30 minutes twice every day. Most patients notice a huge difference in as little as 5 days. Depending on the severity of discoloration, we recommend using this program for 2-6 weeks.

Laser Whitening Treatment

If you are looking for a deeper treatment provided by dental professionals, we recommend laser whitening treatment. Performed in the office, laser whitening is the process of applying a safe bleaching gel to your teeth. A laser is then directed at the gel to heat it up. The reaction between the heat and the bleaching gel can give you great results for whitening hard-to-remove stains.

When You Need a Bit More

Sometimes, whether it is because of age, lifestyle, or genetics, whitening your teeth may not be an option. In this case, it is still possible to get the white smile of your dreams with veneers! These thin shells of resin or porcelain are bonded to the surface of teeth to help create a beautiful and better smile. For people who have severe discoloration or damage to the surface of their teeth, we highly recommend this approach.
