While some people may be satisfied with the smile that comes with regular brushing and cleaning, others might want to bring extra brilliance to their smile. At First Dental, we offer Lumibrite stain removal, a safe and relatively painless way to treat both surface and interior stains to enhance the natural luminosity of your smile.

What causes dull teeth?

When talking about stained teeth, there are two general categories: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains are also known as surface stains and are most commonly caused by beverages like soda, coffee, or wine. These surface stains can usually removed with brushing, but more stubborn stains can be removed with teeth bleaching. Intrinsic stains are discolorations on the inside of the teeth. Because intrinsic stains are caused by aging, trauma, or mineral exposure, they were once thought to be resistant to bleaching. However, cosmetic dentistry has now developed a way to treat these deep-set stains.

What fixes a dull smile?

At First Dental, we use a gentle yet effective Lumibrite teeth whitening treatment, which can show results in as little as 30 minutes. Because Lumibrite uses a desensitizer combined with a whitening gel, patients can see more drastic results in less time with relatively little discomfort. In just one visit, Dr. Ryan P. Lehmkuhler can reintroduce the bright, white shine to your beautiful smile. And at our office, we have both in-office and at-home options available so that anyone looking for teeth whitening in Dodge City, Kansas, can find something that fits their schedule.
