If your teeth are discolored, teeth whitening provides a noninvasive way to lighten the color of your teeth and improve your smile. Our dentist provides teeth whitening for our patients in Tuscaloosa and the surrounding areas.
The primary aesthetic concern for our patients in Tuscaloosa is the color of the teeth. Teeth whitening can help lighten teeth that are discolored due to foods, age, and normal wear, staining from medications and excessive fluoridation, known as fluorosis.
At Home Teeth Whitening
Our dentist offers at home teeth whitening kits with two visits to our Tuscaloosa office. During the first appointment, the dentist will make impressions of the teeth, which are used to make custom plastic trays. At the next visit, the fit of the trays is checked. You will use a whitening solution overnight or for 30 minutes twice a day. Some patients experience some sensitivity of the teeth, but this fades when you stop using the whitening gel. Treatment generally lasts a few weeks, depending on the desired level of whitening.
