Take-Home Teeth Whitening in South Bend, IN

Many people wish that their yellowed, discolored teeth would improve. However, this isn’t going to happen without a little work on their part. When it comes to getting whiter teeth, many people turn to over-the-counter kits to help them brighten their smile. Unfortunately, this may not always be the best option. People who use these kits improperly or too often may run into a number of dental issues. For example, using these kits too much can weaken tooth enamel and cause a throbbing sensation that can last for days. Also, if they are not used correctly, then people will not get the results that they are looking for.

However, all of this does not mean that people who want whiten their teeth at home are out of luck. Our South Bend dentists can provide at-home teeth whitening kits that have been designed by professional dentists to work nearly as well as on-office bleaching. Also, people choose to use these kits they will be given detailed instructions from the dentist on how to use them correctly, which increases their chances of having dramatic results. Furthermore, our best South Bend dentists will offer anyone who comes in for whitening kits a tooth exam to determine the underlying cause of their tooth discoloration. White diet and insufficient brushing and flossing are often the cause of less-than-white teeth, sometimes tooth decay or poor dental work may be the cause, and it’s important to check for these issues. Also,peroxide-based teeth whiteners do not work on tetracycline stains, crowns or veneers. Regardless of what the cause of your stains are, our South Bend dentists will find a way to help your whiten your teeth.

So how does it work? When people choose an at-home whitening kit, a dentist will make a mold of their teeth so a tray can be crafted that will work just for them. Then the dentist will explain exactly how to use them so that there is no confusion. Wearing the trays for an hour a day, for 14 days can result in teeth looking six shades whiter than they currently do. These dramatic results are something that is not often seen in over-the-counter whitening kits that are not crafted in a dentist’s office. So visit our South Bend dentists today and find out if at-home kits are for them.
