How to Ensure Your Teeth Are the Whitest Possible

teeth whitening indianapolis

Your smile is a big part of an excellent first impression. If your teeth are stained or discolored, it may impact your self-esteem, as well as how comfortable you are around other people.

Teeth can become discolored for a variety of reasons, such as:

  • Not brushing correctly or not brushing enough
  • Eating or drinking certain foods that can cause stains, like coffee or tea
  • Smoking
  • Medications like certain antibiotics that cause a yellowing of the teeth
  • Aging, which can cause your teeth to appear stained as tooth enamel begins to wear off and exposes the dentin underneath
  • Excessive fluoride in water can also cause stains on teeth

However, the good news is that getting your teeth whitened is relatively easy, and there are several options. The best way to achieve whiter, brighter teeth is to consult a dentist. Having your dentist supervise the whitening process will ensure that you aren't doing damage to your teeth while you achieve your goal of a better smile. 

Teeth Whitening Options

There are two main methods of teeth whitening that your dentist may choose to treat your discoloration issues. 

Your dentist may opt to perform in-chair whitening. There are a few different products that your dentist can apply to your teeth while you're in the office. These teeth whitening services usually include spending some time with your teeth under a light. After the appointment, your teeth may appear several shades lighter, so satisfaction is generally instant.

Your dentist may also choose to give you a take-home whitening tray. The whitening product is applied onto the tray, and then the tray is inserted into your mouth with your teeth in the product for a set amount of time. This method takes longer to see results, but some people prefer seeing a gradual change over time.

Your dentist could also offer a combination of the two by performing in-chair whitening services and giving you a take-home product to use as well.

At Schroeder & Schroeder Dentistry, we pride ourselves on providing exceptional services to our patients. Having discolored teeth can be embarrassing, but we are happy to help you get your smile back. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

What Our Patients Have to Say

Experience the Transformative Difference with Schroeder & Schroeder Dentistry

In June, I started calling different places to become a patient with a new dentist since I moved to a different side of town! I was welcomed with open arms through the phone with Mrs. Jane and we actually had a friend in common... what a small world.

She sent me the paperwork I needed to fill out prior to coming to my first appointment. I initially came in for a general cleaning since it's been a year, but I knew deep down inside I really needed to get my two sets of bridges in place as well. I've honestly been dreading this procedure for the last 5 years due to the unknown, but Dr. Miles showed me a video and of course I had a lot questions.

I had learned that I could get both done at the same time, and it would be cheaper too. So with several visits to the dental office, I finally received my permanent bridges on Thursday, August 8th. I am happy camper for sure and after the anesthesia subsided and of course after taking a nap... all I could think about was eating I nice big ole steak from Texas Roadhouse! I couldn't believe I could chew on both sides of my mouth because for the past few years I would only chew on the right side!

If I could give your practice 10 stars I would because the staff were relatable, funny and truly cared about me...I wasn't just another patient or another number! I can truly say my smile is brighter than ever because I am no longer self-conscious about my back missing teeth.

Ooh and one more thing, I even received a thank you card in the mail after my first visit and it truly made my day. 😁 I would recommend Schroeder & Schroeder Dentistry to anyone!!

  • As new patients of Schroeder & Schroeder, we've been extremely impressed with the services we've received. The office staff are so welcoming and happy to assist with any needs/questions. Both Dentists are informative and willing to answer any questions, as well as show extreme patience. My daughter and I have been happy with our experiences.

  • I have always been afraid of going to the dentist. I knew I needed a lot of work done and had no idea where to start. Then I remembered this dentist office that did my dad's braces when he was young, so I called. After the first visit, I have been able to handle every other one with a breeze!! The staff and dentist are AMAZING and make the whole process amazing!! From scheduling, to billing, to fillings, to extractions, to cleanings, to checking in, they are AMAZING!

  • I’ve been going to Dr. Schroeder for over 15 years and my oral health has never been better! Dr. Schroeder and his staff are absolutely fantastic professionals. The dental assistants are just as amazing and are eager to answer any questions or concerns. I don’t ever plan on going anywhere else and I highly recommend them!

  • Good vibes only! The reviews got me in the door and the staff inside will keep me coming back. I went for my first visit to a dentist in 6 years and from the moment I walked in it was such a friendly environment. Everyone was so welcoming and made me feel at ease despite not having gone to a dentist in so long. It was a surprisingly wonderful experience. Very happy with my choice!
