Do you wish your smile was whiter? Have your teeth gone from a white shade to a golden hue? For most people, cosmetic tooth staining is unavoidable. Many things we eat and drink can stain our teeth – especially if teeth are exposed to dark-colored items on a regular basis. Another reason teeth stain is because of bad habits such as smoking or chewing tobacco. Using tobacco is a major culprit behind cosmetic dental stains.
Fortunately, the solution to dull and darkened teeth is as simple as calling our cosmetic dentist for a teeth whitening consultation. Professional teeth whitening is effective and safe for teeth. Moreover, our patients can whiten their teeth in the comfort of their homes when its most convenient for them. Take-home teeth whitening is an easy, comfortable answer to brightening a dulled smile.
Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening
If you are unhappy with the color of your teeth, you might be tempted to drive to your nearest pharmacy or supermarket for over-the-counter whitening toothpastes and white strips. While advertisers make claims that these products produce noticeable results, many people experience little change in the color of their teeth. Professional teeth whitening is different because prescription-grade formulas are used with potent ingredients.
Since professional whitening solutions are made with higher concentrations of whitening agents, patients can achieve the results they desire quickly. Potent whitening formulas help prevent the problem that occurs with ineffective whitening treatments: overuse. For example, some whitening toothpastes contain abrasive agents that are used to scrub away surface stains. When used for too long or used improperly, these toothpastes can contribute to permanent tooth sensitivity and enamel damage.
Beyond the benefits of achieving a noticeably whiter smile, professional teeth whitening from the comfort of your home is easy and convenient. Simply place the prescribed amount of whitening solution into the provided custom trays. Position the trays over your teeth and remove any excess solution that might come through the edges of trays over the gums. Whiten your teeth for the recommended amount of time, then floss and brush gently. Repeat as often as directed to achieve significant results. Many patients choose to whiten while they do chores around the house or watch television.
