Whether you brush often or not, teeth tend to get stained over time. That’s only natural – you needn’t feel shame over the fact. Still, you don’t have to live with your discolored pearly whites. The better choice is to brighten them with quality teeth whitening! With help from Healthy Smiles Dental Care, this option puts a shine back on your smile. Please keep reading to learn more about it, or book a consultation with our office.
If your oral health is decent, you likely qualify for teeth whitening. The treatment doesn't involve strict must-haves beyond that. Even so, it does benefit some patients more than others.
Overall, the best candidates are those with extrinsic tooth stains. Foods, drinks, and similar factors cause this discoloration. Meanwhile, treatment isn’t as effective for marks beneath the enamel (i.e., intrinsic stains). To be clear, though, whitening helps any patient who wants more confidence in social settings.
At your initial visit, our team will outline your teeth whitening choices. The first is a take-home kit that brightens your smile more flexibly. Option two is our in-office Zoom! Whitening service, which is done by our dentists.
Take note: the method you choose will impact your treatment timeline. However, either approach should brighten your smile by six to eight shades.Take-Home Teeth Whitening
If you’d prefer to whiten from home, our team will provide a take-home whitening kit. It contains personalized trays and a potent bleaching gel. For treatment, you’ll wear the gel-infused trays for a few hours each day. Your pearly whites will then be brighter in only a couple of weeks!
Naturally, our take-home kits are distinct from those sold in stores. The latter kind don’t work nearly as well. Worse yet, store-bought versions can harm your teeth.In-Office Teeth Whitening
If you want fast results, try our in-office Zoom! Whitening. It consists of a one-hour dental visit at our practice. There, our team will apply the whitener directly onto your teeth. Once this gel sets, we’ll expose it to a special UV light. This light will then activate the whitener and brighten your smile!
With in-office whitening, you can rest easy. The treatment’s materials are both safe and effective. (The non-toxic gel won’t harm your teeth or gums.)
While teeth whitening isn’t permanent, there are ways to help it last. The best ones are:
