In-Office Bleaching in South Bend, IN

No matter how well you brush and floss, chances are your teeth aren’t as white as they used to be. From the coffee you drink in the morning to that glass of red wine you have at night, there are many things that can change the color of your teeth. Having yellow teeth can be unsightly and embarrassing, but luckily there is an easy way to fix this problem – professional teeth whitening. While there are many at-home kits out there that promise to leave you with a brighter smile, they don’t offer results that are even close to what you can get from a professional. Furthermore, using these kits incorrectly or too often may wear away at the enamel of your teeth, causing them to weaken and become more sensitive to hot and cold beverages. So why leave it up to chance? Visit a dental health professional so you know you are in capable hands and are sure to get the results you want.

Professional whitening is one of the most affordable, and simplest ways to improve your smile and you’ll be shocked with how quickly you see a dramatic and lasting change in your smile. This is why whitening is by far the most popular cosmetic procedure out there, and why so many people are turning to professionals to brighten their smile.

When you visit our South Bend dentists for professional whitening, you will receive a full dental exam to determine any underlying causes of your tooth discoloration. This is needed because whitening doesn’t work on all types of stains, such as those that are on crowns or veneers, and we want to make sure that you are completely satisfied with your results. Also, the cause behind your discoloration could be decay or a bad filling, and we want to make sure to catch those issues early so they can be treated before a more serious issue arises. We pride ourselves in making sure that your teeth are not only healthy, but also looking their best, which is why we will go through such great lengths to ensure that you feel confident in your smile. So visit our South Bend dentists today, and together we can come up with a whitening plan that’s right for you and will leave you with the Hollywood smile you’ve always wanted.
