Some whitening procedures are done in the dental office in one visit. Other whitening agents can be purchased and used at home. These are both preferable to over-the-counter options you buy at the drugstore. Over-the-counter whitening agents won’t whiten your teeth as quickly or as effectively as those provided by a dentist.
Over-the-counter trays and strips can be messy and leak. They’re designed to address the average tooth, but not everyone fits this definition. People have different needs in terms of whitening. Only by visiting Fresh Smiles Family Dentistry for whitening can you have the process customized for you. If you have severe stains, an over-the-counter kit just isn’t going to cut it.
Dental office whitening is also quicker. Instead of applying strips or paste for weeks or months, you’re in and out with a brilliant smile the same day or in a few appointments.
Over time, teeth become discolored or stained. Smoking and certain foods, such as berries, coffee, and red wine, can exacerbate discoloration. But a beautiful smile could be closer than you think.
The staff at Fresh Smiles Family Dentistry offers a safe, inexpensive solution to a less-than-optimal smile. Whitening your teeth is a straightforward procedure that can be completed in a relatively short period.
With over-the-counter whiteners, you may feel some sensitivity due to the compounds used. At Fresh Smiles Family Dentistry, you can talk to the technicians and dentists to minimize discomfort. They may offer a cover for your gums or a post whitening fluoride treatment to minimize sensitivity.
You can also pick the strength of the whitener and your shade. And if you have a sensitivity emergency, Dr. Cheng and Dr. Anwar are ready and available to help you.
When having teeth-whitening done in office, you first have a thorough cleaning to remove any plaque or debris that can interfere with the process. You also have a brief exam to ensure you have no cracks, decay, or gum disease that may react to the whitening compound. Pre-whitening images may also be taken so you can compare the results.
