Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to take years off of your smile and boost your confidence in your overall appearance. Perfect for that reunion, wedding or other special occasion, teeth whitening can be an economical smile makeover for many patients.
Millennium Smiles in Frisco, TX offers teeth whitening as both an in office treatment or a customized take home option. Our cosmetic dentist uses high quality, professional teeth whitening products as an in office option, providing great results in about one hour. They are specially formulated to reduce the side effect of increased sensitivity that is often associated with a whitening procedure.
Patients can also choose to brighten their smile easily and conveniently in the comfort of their own home- revealing a whiter smile in about 2 weeks time. Providing results far superior to over the counter options readily available, our professional teeth whitening kit will include bleaching trays made to fit your unique smile from impressions of your teeth taken in our dental office. These custom fit trays will ensure an even distribution of the professional quality bleaching agent for maximum results. They also serve to minimize contact with the soft tissues of the mouth, reducing sensitivity and irritation of the gums.
Teeth whitening is effective for most patients and common tooth staining or darkening caused by aging and lifestyle habits. There are, however, several types of tooth stains that may not respond to a teeth whitening treatment: stains that are the result of certain medical conditions or medications can be difficult to reverse. For patients with these types of stains, your Millennium Smiles dentist may recommend alternate cosmetic treatment options that will not only whiten your smile but provide more permanent results:
Maintain your results with periodic touch ups and avoiding lifestyle habits that stain tooth enamel such as smoking and consuming dark beverages (coffee, tea, red wine).
