Make Your Smile Brighter Than Ever Before
Make Your Smile Brighter Than Ever Before
Some people say it’s the eyes, but we believe the smile is truly the window to the soul. Our smile has the biggest impact on the way we feel about our appearance. If you are not completely satisfied with the appearance of your teeth, it can affect your self-esteem and your ability to project confidence. Teeth whitening products are readily accessible today with many over-the-counter products boasting an easy home whitening solution. Teeth are a very important part of your body, and you should entrust your smile to those that have years of experience and knowledge with professional teeth whitening.
All whitening, including professional teeth whitening, uses peroxide whitening agents. With professional whitening, your gums and lips are protected, then professional strength whitening gel is applied to your teeth. Sometimes, a light is used to enhance results of the whitening gel. Because of the strength and the makeup of the professional whitener, it can penetrate the tooth and reach the stain quickly, and then remove it. Before and after photos show the dramatic results that can occur with professional teeth whitening. The results are deeper and last longer than what you would get from using over-the-counter whitening products.
How long your results will last will vary, depending on your diet and lifestyle factors such as using tobacco products. While professional teeth whitening does provide you with results that last longer, regular consumption of coffee, wine, mustard, berries, or tobacco use will shorten your results. It is advised that you avoid eating or drinking foods that cause staining, as well as using tobacco, for at least the first few days following your whitening treatment.
Results may last up to five years if teeth are maintained properly. Your habits affect longevity. If you drink red wine or coffee or use tobacco often, you may need to touch-up more frequently.
It is well documented that professional teeth whitening performed by a licensed dentist is quite safe. Professional teeth whitening has been a popular treatment in cosmetic dentistry for more than 20 years, and research shows that the procedure is safe, according to the American Dental Association.
For most people, professional teeth whitening does not lead to any sensitivity since there are desensitizers mixed into the whitening gel to minimize tooth sensitivity. The same may not be true for over-the-counter whitening agents. However, each patient is different, and there is the chance of gum irritation or tooth sensitivity in rare instances.
It can range from $300 to $1200, depending on the severity of your staining. Professional teeth whitening may seem more expensive compared to over-the-counter varieties, but the results make it worth the difference. A bright white smile can give you a major boost in confidence.
To maintain your new bright smile, we would like you to use a whitening toothpaste each time you brush. If you smoke, it would be best to reduce the amount you smoke or even quit altogether. Using a straw each time that you drink will help keep your teeth white, longer. For ladies, we recommend using a smudge-proof lipstick so that the color stays off your teeth.
