Are your teeth yellowed or stained? Do you dream of a whiter, brighter smile? Dr. John S. Grisham may recommend teeth whitening in Littleton, New Hampshire. Teeth whitening is ideal for patients with yellowed teeth with no dental restorations. Other shades of staining may not bleach as well or at all. Dental restorations, like dental fillings and dental crowns, will not react to the bleaching product, so they will stand out against a newly whitened smile.
Our dentist offers take-home teeth whitening. You will be supplied with custom-made bleaching trays and a gel bleaching product. Wear the trays with the bleach as prescribed by our dentist. Usually, treatment time is for several hours a day or during the night for up to four weeks. Treatment times will vary based on the current shade of your smile and the desired level of whitening.
The effects of teeth whitening are not permanent. Patients who expose their teeth to staining foods and beverages may see the brightness of their smiles begin to fade in as little as one month. However, if a patient avoids staining foods and beverages, their white smile can last for a year or more. At this point, the patient may wish to have teeth whitening performed again.
