Take Home Teeth Whitening Kits
Professional grade teeth whitening systems offer better results and fewer side effects than over the counter options. Professional teeth whitening causes less sensitivity and helps to protect teeth from enamel erosion. The custom designed trays evenly distribute the whitening gel and protect gums and soft oral tissues from irritation. Take-home whitening kits are economical and allow the patient to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home at their convenience.
Why are my teeth yellow or discolored?
Yellow or discolored teeth is a fairly normal part of the aging process. Discolored teeth can be a result of diet, smoking, medications or trauma to the teeth. Many teeth stains can be whitened with professional grade whitening gels. For stains that are resistant to teeth whitening treatment options, such as discoloration due to an injury or medication, Dr. Desbordes may recommend Lumineers or porcelain veneers.
