If the teeth in your smile have been yellowed by the passage of time or by your enjoyment of staining foods and beverages, it can leave you feeling socially awkward. In a situation like this, there are several different options that your Belmar Smiles dentist might suggest.

Wearing whitening strips is a convenient way to whiten minor surface stains your teeth as you go about your day. You simply apply them to your teeth and they can help reduce minor surface stains and help you maintain your white smile.

Whitening strips have a special form of topical hydrogen peroxide. You should abstain from eating, drinking and using tobacco while the strips are in your mouth.

Keep in mind that the concentration of topical hydrogen peroxide used by the whitening strips will only be strong enough to brighten minor stains on your teeth. The dental Zoom! whitening treatment offered by our Belmar Smiles team is the safest and most effective way to whiten moderate to deeply stained teeth.

With Zoom! Whitening we are able to whiten your smile in two different ways. First, an in-office session can lighten your smile by multiple shades in as little as an hour. Second, our custom-made whitening trays can be used at home at your own convenience. Both work by using a whitening gel that absorbs into your tooth enamel to bleach away stains and discoloration.

If you are interested in finding the safest, most effective way to whiten your smile, please call Belmar Smiles’s office in Lakewood, Colorado at 303-935-3574 to set up an appointment.  Dr. Christina Sehy VerSchave will help you determine which method of teeth whitening in Lakewood, Colorado, is right for you!
