It seems that almost everyone these days are looking for ways to improve the whiteness of their smile. And why not? When you have a great, white smile, you’ll typically feel more confident, while projecting health and happiness.
Another reason that people seek to have their teeth whitened is that oftentimes, a great smile is seen as being “youthful”. Because of advances in modern dentistry, it’s now possible for almost anyone to achieve the smile of their dreams. At Black Hills Area Dental, we’re proud to offer our patients the latest and state-of-the art in teeth whitening – the uPhoria Smile system.
Teeth Whitening offered at Black Hills Area Dental
Teeth whitening, or tooth bleaching, is a cosmetic dentistry procedure designed to remove stains and discoloration, as well as lighten pigmentation within the teeth. The level of whiteness that can be achieved will depend on the level of discoloration of the teeth and how they came to be stained. Teeth that are brown or yellow due to coffee, tea, or smoking stains will generally lighten four to five shades. Teeth that are gray due to pigmentation within the teeth will lighten two to three shades.
Teeth whitening can be done in one of two ways: or at-home tooth whitening kits provided by a cosmetic dentist. Both of these methods are done under a cosmetic dentist’s supervision so that the chance of negative side effects is reduced.
