Have you always wanted a beautiful white smile?
Or have you noticed that your teeth have yellowed overtime? Perhaps you’ve noticed that the tea, coffee, and cola that you have consumed have left your teeth looking stained.
Whatever the reason for wanting a brighter smile, you are not alone. Many of our patients come to us seeking custom teeth whitening trays.
Just like all the differences between us, people also have different tooth color. Some have a brighter whiter smile, while others a more yellow. Your teeth can even yellow over time with aging. Your natural tooth color can be affected by many factors.
Surface stains and even internal discoloration can be caused by:
- Tobacco Use
- Drinking Tea, Coffee, Cola, and even Red Wine!
- Plaque and Tatar build-up
- Tetracycline Use
- Trauma to Teeth (This can give your teeth a brown, gray, or black color)
Why should I use teeth whitening trays or a teeth whitening system? Well, there are many reasons, including:
- To boost your confidence. A great smile can help to boost your confidence and self-esteem.
- Reverse your aging. A whiter smile can help to give you a younger-looking appearance.
- A special event. A beautiful smile will make an impression at special event such as a wedding, reunion, or even an interview, everyone will notice!
- To make a positive first impression. People notice a great smile!
- To reverse years of everyday staining and yellowing.
Thomas L. Anderson and Associates offers a convenient at-home whitening system with custom teeth whitening trays. To assure you are getting the full benefits of any teeth whitening service, a dental cleaning should be done prior to starting. A dental cleaning ensures that any an excess build-up on the teeth is removed. With no plaque or tartar on your teeth, the professional teeth whitening gel can better penetrate into the porosities of the tooth enamel to help draw out intrinsic stains and discolorations. A dental cleaning also promotes overall health!

Once your dental cleaning is complete, our dental team can fit you for your custom teeth whitening trays. The trays will be used from home to hold the teeth whitening gel. Most options for teeth whitening gel are either hydrogen or carbamide peroxide-based solutions varying in different concentrations. These gels are safe and effective to use without fear of damaging tooth enamel.
It is common to have some sensitivity during or immediately after whitening your teeth. That is why different concentrations are available, to help make whitening your teeth more comfortable with less sensitivity. You can also adjust the amount of time and frequency you use the teeth whitening trays to help with the sensitivity.
We understand that this teeth whitening system can seem a bit intimidating, but once you see a demonstration of use, many people find it extremely easy and convenient to use. This system is also more cost effective than many other options that are available, especially over-the-counter. If you are interested in an at-home teeth whitening system, please contact Thomas L. Anderson and Associates at one of our 3 Kansas City Metro locations. We would be happy to help you achieve a brighter whiter smile!
