If you’re considering teeth whitening in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, it helps to know your options. Teeth whitening comes in many forms and levels of efficiency. Your best treatment option depends on the cause and extent of the stains on your teeth.

You should always consult with Dr. Carlos M. Suadi before using a new whitening product. Our BR Dental Care dental professionals have the training and experience required to help you find the safest and most effective way to meet your whitening goals.

Brightening minor stains on your teeth can sometimes be as simple as using a whitening toothpaste in your daily oral hygiene routine. This can be a very easy way to reduce minor surface stains between dental cleaning appointments.

Whitening strips are popular and convenient because you can wear them as you go about your day. The clear plastic makes it hard for the casual observer to even notice you’re wearing them. While they are applied to your teeth, you will need to avoid eating, drinking, and using tobacco. Just like whitening toothpaste, they are only strong enough to brighten minor stains.

Moderate to deeply stained teeth will require stronger measures. Whitening gels use stronger concentrations of whitening agents than toothpaste or strips. To use them, you pour a small amount of the whitening gel into the provided trays and hold them your mouth.

Deep stains on tooth enamel can rarely be whitened by retail level products. Here, we offer in-office and take-home teeth whitening procedures that can whiten deep stains safely and effectively. We use whitening trays molded after an impression of your teeth to provide a custom fit that will lighten your teeth as much as six shades.

You don’t have to live with a dull smile. If you desire whiter teeth, contact BR Dental Care at 225-753-5885 to schedule a teeth whitening appointment.
