Unlike other forms of cosmetic dental damage, such as chips, cracks, and fractures, that can happen suddenly and stick out when you smile, stains and discolorations usually attack your teeth slowly and over a long period of time. While your smile may not look noticeably different from day to day, comparing old pictures to your current look may make you feel embarrassed about your newly yellowed smile.

Accordingly, you may decide to invest in over-the-counter whitening products to try and improve it, but only a professional treatment can deliver significantly noticeable and lasting whitening results in a reliable fashion. Read on to learn how this cosmetic service from Dr. David Fowler, your dentist in Franklin, KY, can improve your look!

Treat Yourself to a Little Self-Care with Cosmetic Dentistry

If your teeth are not as white as they once were (or as you'd like them to be), don't be too hard on yourself: in addition to food, drinks, and smoking, factors beyond your control like genetics and the aging process can all contribute to dental discolorations.

If you would like to improve your look a bit, you can choose between an in-office treatment procedure, which takes about an hour and produces immediate results, or an at-home treatment if you'd like to take a more gradual approach. The latter option uses the same powerful hydrogen peroxide gel to whiten your teeth, but instead of applying it in one treatment, the dentist will take a mold of your teeth for custom trays to take home. You'll apply the gel yourself over the course of a few weeks on your own schedule and in the comfort of your own home.

With the help of a brighter smile, you can look younger, feel more confident, and give great first impressions whether you're on a date or at a job interview!
