Hello and welcome to the Butte Family Dental blog!
You may have noticed that your daily dose of coffee, chocolate, red wine, soda, and the like, has been leaving its mark (literally) on your teeth.
It can be embarrassing to walk around with a yellow or otherwise discolored smile. That’s why today we wanted to explore your options for reversing the effects of food and beverage stains (or the ones left by the aging process, medications, or tobacco products).
There is actually a lot that you can do to improve your situation, just don’t go looking over the counter of your drugstore for a solution.
Over-The-Counter Solutions Only Disappoint
Yes, they are big sellers. But they don’t usually get many repeat buyers. The problem with those kits that you see at the supermarket and elsewhere is that the materials are not professional-grade, and they are not made to fit your specific mouth or address your unique staining circumstances.
What’s more, those DIY kits leave you, a non-professional, in-charge of the whole process. It is not surprising then that the results leave much to be desired. And you will only have yourself to blame. Hopefully, if you have tried this route before, you didn’t damage your gums, because that often is the case when spillover from the ill-fitting trays occurs.
Anyway, the thing to remember is that your trusted Butte, MT dentist can deliver the kind of smile you are looking for: bright, white, and healthy!
Professional Teeth Whitening In Butte
You look to us to keep your mouth clean and alert you when things are not looking good in your oral cavity. So, why wouldn’t you want to bring your whitening needs to us? Our team knows exactly how to get the job done in a safe and effective manner. And when you let us look after the process, there are some real advantages for you.
We Start With An Oral Exam
Once you are here we will review your problems and desired results and take into consideration your medical history, any current health issues, and the overall state of your teeth before we suggest moving forward with a professional teeth whitening procedure.
In certain rare instances, it is not an option based on the other contributing factors that you may have in your life at the moment. Most of the time we can green-light the process rather quickly.
Professional Teeth Cleaning
It only makes sense that you have a professional cleaning prior to any teeth whitening procedure. This will maximize the results, and allow for a longer lasting whiteness following the treatment. You won’t get that kind of service at the grocery store!
Custom Made Whitening Trays
As opposed to those disastrous one-size-fits-all solutions, we can custom-build whitening trays for you that will fit your teeth just right.
That way, the peroxide bleaching gel will be concentrated in all the right places and stay away from your gums and soft tissues.
A Watchful Eye
It pays to have a professional involved. While you are in the midst of this treatment, we will check on your progress and examine your emerging results. This is to ensure that your teeth are responding to the prescribed concentration of whitening gel and that your gums are not irritated.
Easy To Get Started!
If you are ready to take the next step, we can immediately help you brighten your stained or discolored smile.
