Teeth Whitening - Waukesha Smiles Dentistry
How we look, either at ourselves in the mirror, or others looking at our face is really important. The psychology of appearance is hugely important to our overall well-being and has noting to do with vanity. Do you like the color of your teeth? Do they look a little dark. If you are uncomfortable showing your smile, you are a good candidate to consider teeth whitening.
The face is where people live.
We show how Over-the-Counter (OTC ) treatments work and can provide our patients with examples, to help you make the best decisions. We will show you how the OTC treatments work and will provide you with an honest assessment of proceeding with our dental tray option or the less expensive OTC method. There are many cases where the OTC treatment works great, especially armed with the knowledge provided my our dental team.
Teeth Stained by Antibiotics?
Tetracycline stained teeth can be whitened in our office using custom trays. This staining happens as a side effect of the use of the antibiotic tetracycline while teeth are forming, so children receiving tetracycline between the age of 0 and 10 years of age are at risk. These patients will need to whiten their teeth periodically throughout their life time.
All options are always on the table and we simply assist you in making an informed decision, unique to your situation. Especially with teeth whitening, there are no right or wrong answers and never a judgment. We then help our patients execute the plan and honor their decision.
