As you age and perform normal, day-to-day events, your teeth can develop stains. If you drink coffee, smoke, or eat acidic foods, these stains progress more quickly. But these activities have become part of your set routine, and you might not think that they can harm your teeth. And then one day you notice that your teeth look very yellow or gray.
You've tried everything to whiten your teeth, from whitening toothpaste and over-the-counter whitening strips. You want a brighter smile, but generic store brands just won't cut it anymore. Come visit Dr. Skeels and his friendly staff to take advantage of our professional teeth whitening in Rochester, NY.
Teeth whitening represents the one of the best cosmetic dental solutions to patients who want to improve their smiles. To ensure that you receive the smile you wish for, this procedure occurs during three separate appointments.
During your first exam, our dental team will examine your teeth to make sure you don't have any root or surface damage. Dr. Skeels will also review your dental history and discuss how white you'd like your teeth. This initial consultation allows us to understand your needs before we continue.
At your second appointment, we make custom trays from imprints of your teeth. Then, we give you a whitening gel to add to the trays. You will wear the gel-filled trays for a very specific amount of time, typically every night for two weeks. Depending on how white you'd like your teeth, you might need to wear these trays for a longer period of time.
Finally, we will examine your teeth during your third appointment. At this visit, Dr. Skeels may recommend additional treatment if necessary.
