Have you recently found yourself wishing you could rewind time? Has one too many candles snuck its way onto this year’s birthday cake? If so, there is good news. You do not have to wish for a more youthful smile. Professional teeth whitening can help to remove years of stains from your teeth, which can lighten them by several shades. By creating a brighter smile, you can both enhance your natural beauty, and also improve your self-esteem. Though it is scientifically impossible to be any younger than you are now, cosmetic dentistry can help you feel and look more youthful!
Can Professional Whitening Really Improve My Smile?
In a word, yes. Professional whitening is designed to be efficient and safe. It is also far more likely than over-the-counter products to drastically change your smile by several shades. That is because as cosmetic dentists we can provide custom trays that help to keep the bleaching gel on your teeth, and only your teeth. This greatly reduces sensitivity and irritation, by keeping the bleaching gel from coming into contact with your highly sensitive gum tissue. It also makes sure the entire front surface of your front teeth is covered.
Over-the-counter treatments are one-size-fits-all, which means they may not fit your teeth correctly. They may also cause heightened sensitivity. When seeking any form of whitening treatment, it is important to follow the given directions, as overuse of whitening products, even those given to you by a dentist, can cause discomfort.
How Much Brighter Can My Teeth Become?
Patients that take advantage of both our in-office treatment and take-home whitening trays can eliminate even permanent stains, and often whiten their teeth up to eight shades. Initial results generally become visible with a few days, and full results can be achieved in an average of two weeks.
