Do you have an upcoming summer event such as a graduation or wedding? Or do you just want to improve your personal appearance in a very noticeable way? Then professional tooth whitening may be for you.
This wonderful cosmetic dental service is provided in a relatively inexpensive and quick way by your Rochester Hills general dentist, and the dramatic change in tooth color will enhance your smile for as long as 2 full years. Best of all, under the supervision of your dental care professionals at Family Smiles Dental Care, tooth whitening is safe and effective.
Why do teeth need whitening?
Over time, teeth become discolored and stained because of:
- cigarette smoking
- certain intensely colored foods
- beverages such as coffee, cola and red wine
When those pearly whites are not so white any more, people notice. Most of all, you notice, and your self-confidence can suffer. You may even want to hide your smile in public.
While some people elect more expensive and time-consuming procedures such as porcelain veneers to improve their smiles, tooth whitening can be accomplished in as little as an hour right in the dental chair. It’s a great option for healthy teeth that just need a little cosmetic help.
Why is it better to whiten your teeth at the dentist’s office?
The reasons are many. One of them is skill and supervision. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry maintains that dentists and trained dental technicians can apply whitening gels expertly and safely.
Unlike over the counter toothpastes and bleaching gels, professional whitening renders brighter and more accurate shades of tooth color and protects sensitive tooth roots and gums. In addition, the dentist can adjust the amount of whitening for people who have dental crowns and implants, matching the shade of the natural teeth to the color of these restorations. Often, the doctor or dental technician uses a special light to activate and enhance the bleaching chemicals.
Also, the whitening trays which place the gel are customized to each patient. There’s no one-size-fits-all application; so, results are simply better.
