Are you looking to fall in love with your smile again? One of the most popular cosmetic treatments to help improve your smile is teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is a safe, quick, and effective way to get the white, bright smile that you’ve been missing.
As we age, our teeth become discolored for a variety of reasons. Diet, health, and aging can all give our teeth a yellow appearance. Behaviors like tobacco use and consuming certain beverages like tea, coffee, and red wine can lead to a stained and discolored smile.
How does teeth whitening work?
With laser teeth whitening, yellowing, stains and discoloration will all be significantly improved in just one treatment. In as little as 45 minutes, your teeth can be whitened up to 8 shades. For this procedure we use a bleaching gel that fights discolored molecules within your tooth, improving color from the inside out. It is completely safe and will not damage the enamel of your teeth.
What is the best way to whiten your teeth?
Many people choose to opt for an over-the-counter whitening product because they are generally cheaper. The bleaching agent in these products is much weaker than the bleaching gel used in our office, and will not work as effectively. It can take weeks and multiple purchases of the at-home whitening kits before results are dramatic enough to be noticeable. Additionally, if the material isn’t applied correctly, teeth could whiten unevenly, resulting in an unnatural, blotchy appearance.
While over-the-counter products typically need to be purchased multiple times a year, our results can last for years after just one treatment. In-office whitening is an effective and safer way to get the pearly white smile you’ve been missing.
