Teeth whitening in Anchorage, Alaska is one of the most requested cosmetic dental treatments that we offer. This treatment aims to remove stains and discoloration that occur with time and certain lifestyle habits. Common causes of discoloration, dark patches, and stains on the teeth include:
- Smoking or tobacco use
- Drinking wine, coffee, and other dark-colored drinks
- Eating high levels of sugary or acidic foods
- Certain illnesses and medications, especially tetracycline
- Old dental restorations made of metal
There are many different application methods for teeth whitening, but they all work in similar fashion. A specialized whitening gel is applied topically to your teeth. These gels generally contain hydrogen peroxide, a gentle bleaching agent. As the gel rests on your teeth, it is slowly absorbed into your tooth enamel and begins to dissolve deep-rooted stains and discoloration. Dr. Dustin Wilde, our skilled dentist at Advanced Family Dental Care, and his team will make your take home bleaching trays and provide you with the best bleaching material available. If you would like a brighter, whiter smile, we encourage you to contact us today and set up your cosmetic consultation. Our dental team looks forward to working with you to help you achieve a more pleasing, attractive smile.
