La Grande Teeth Whitening services
Wouldn’t it be great if you could throw your teeth in with your next load of whites? In a flash, you could remove years’ worth of built up stains caused by tobacco, wine, coffee, and the aging process. With professional teeth whitening from Dr. Harris, it’s almost that easy.
Why Teeth Discolor
Tooth enamel is a porous substance. Foods, beverages, and tobacco products leave behind staining compounds that penetrate the porous enamel and settle in the tooth’s soft, inner layer of dentin. When this happens, regular brushing (even with whitening toothpaste) can’t reach these deep-down stains.
What You Can Do About It
While many over-the-counter products exist, professional teeth whitening is the safest and most effective stain-removing method. To prevent damaging the teeth and gums, Dr. Harris first checks for signs of tooth decay or other problems. Then, he can recommend the whitening program that’s best for you. Patients can choose from in-office teeth whitening, which takes about an hour and lightens teeth an average of 10 shades, and take-home whitening, which includes reusable trays that you wear at home for about two weeks.
Whether you choose in-office or take-home teeth whitening, you’ll soon say goodbye to stubborn stains and hello to a beautiful, bright smile you can’t wait to brandish!
