You deserve a bright and shiny smile and there are many products on the market today to help you achieve one. You might notice that your daily brushing and flossing are not making your teeth any brighter. In fact your teeth may appear to be getting duller and more discolored as time goes by. Some of the more common causes of teeth discoloration may be medications, coffee, tea, or cigarettes. People who drink sugary soft drinks may also have discolored teeth. Genetics also can play a part because some people have naturally brighter teeth than others. Perhaps it is time to go a step further and investigate a professional treatment at Montrose Dental Associates to light up your smile!

When you visit your Montrose cosmetic dentist
, Dr. Daniel Lyu, at Montrose Dental Associates, he will be able to make recommendations about the best way to brighten your smile. Dr. Lyu will guide you in making the right choice. He will typically discuss his in-office whitening and bleaching system or the at-home applications he provides.
There are several ways to brighten your teeth. With the in-office bleaching, a whitening agent is applied to your teeth and a special laser is used to enhance the action of the whitening agent. It is often not a permanent solution and is more expensive than the take-home alternative. Home maintenance follow-up is often recommended.
Another way to whiten your teeth is at home. A gel is typically placed in a mouth guard and the guard is then placed over your teeth. Sometimes your gums or teeth might have a little sensitivity to both of these processes. However, if you have concerns, you can speak to Dr. Lyu and he will be able to advise you on the best approach.
When you visit your local Montrose Cosmetic Dentist
, a dental exam will be performed and your teeth will be given a cleaning to clear away plaque and debris that have accumulated. You will also be examined for gum disease or tooth decay. The types of whiteners used on your teeth may cause your gums to become irritated. If this is the case, Dr. Lyu may advise waiting until these problems have cleared up. Keep in mind that some stains are deep and can be resistant to whitening. If this is the case, you may be asked to consider, bonding, crowns, or veneers.
