White teeth are often associated with youth, beauty, and success. But what if your smile is looking a little dark or lackluster? You could certainly try over the counter whitening products, but for the best possible results, you should consider investing in a professional treatment from a cosmetic dentist in Trumbull. Dr. Cappello uses the innovative GLO whitening system to help patients achieve dazzling smiles as quickly and safely as possible.
One of the biggest reasons why teeth become discolored is food and drink. Things like coffee, tea, red wine, and berries are all rich in pigments. Those pigments become trapped in the teeth, causing teeth to take on a yellowish or dark appearance.
Of course, there are other possible explanations for dental discoloration. Some medications, such as tetracycline, may make the teeth look gray. The use of tobacco products can also have adverse consequences for your smile’s appearance. Additionally, genetics, age, and other factors can all contribute to teeth that are not as white as you may desire.
If you are unhappy with the color of your teeth, visit us for a consultation. After Dr. Cappello examines your teeth and learns about your goals for treatment, he might recommend a GLO whitening product to vanquish stains and help your smile look its best. Our practice offers both in-office and take-home teeth whitening options.
There are a few different GLO whitening treatment protocols for in-office whitening. The most popular option is GLO Max, which involves a two-week course of at-home whitening along with a single in-office whitening session.
If you have particularly severe staining, perhaps from fluorosis or tetracycline, you might require GLO Ultra or GLO Ultra-T to achieve your desired results. These protocols require multiple office visits along with at-home whitening.
If you prefer all of your teeth whitening to take place at home, you might qualify for either GLO-Day or GLO-Night. These involve the daily or nightly use of custom whitening trays and a high potency whitening gel over the course of at least two weeks.
There are quite a few professional whitening treatments out there, but Dr. Cappello uses GLO products because they offer some unique benefits. For example, the whitening gel is continuously refrigerated from the time it is manufactured until it is delivered to the dental office. Refrigeration preserves the potency of the gel and eliminates the need for chemical stabilizers. GLO has also been shown to produce less dental sensitivity than other whitening treatments, and it is often able to significantly reduce even very tough stains, such as those from tetracycline.

Not all whitening products are created equal. While several on the market can give you whiter results, the experience can be less than enjoyable. With Glo, you don’t have to sit in the treatment chair for over an hour with your lips pulled back in an uncomfortable mouthguard. Instead, Glo utilizes a comfortable appliance that gently warms the whitening solution and provides an activating light. Unlike other whitening treatments, this simple, pain-free, and stress-free system can deliver up to 12 shades of whiter results!
