If you’re confident, you smile more. If you smile more, you feel more confident. But what if you don’t smile because you’re embarrassed by discolored teeth?
Sometimes a new smile is easier than you realize. Teeth whitening removes years of dull stains from your teeth. Coffee, tea, wine, tobacco, and chocolate discolor white enamel surfaces. A color boost coupled with slight polishing and reshaping of chipped, uneven edges can bring out a smile transformation. Most patients don’t realize how many color compounds embed into their teeth until they see whitening changes.
Some whitening products can be found online or on supermarket shelves. We don’t discourage all of these methods, but professional whitening offers several advantages:
- Customized trays: We make trays that fit your teeth like a glove. Thin medical-grade plastic follows the alignment of your teeth so that the whitening gel evenly contacts all tooth surfaces. This customization produces consistent whitening with a minimal gel overflow onto your gums.
- Quality gel formulas: We use high-quality whitening products for safety and consistency. These professional-strength gels come from manufacturers with careful quality control and known sources. Remember that these are temperature-sensitive gels and must be made and stored in controlled environments.
- Sensitivity management: You may experience temporary teeth sensitivity during whitening. We have specific strategies to control sensitivity, and we customize the method for a comfortable and safe whitening experience.
- Long-term results: The cost of buying a box of whitening strips periodically adds up. With a single pair of custom trays, you enjoy a system that should fit for years. You may need a simple refill syringe of gel that you get from our office to keep your smile bright over time.
Teeth whitening gives a predictable boost to your confidence with a better smile. But numerous factors should be evaluated before starting any whitening regimen. We depend on years of experience and the best systems to deliver a safe, comfortable smile boost!
