Creating a vibrant smile might be easier than you think. Professional teeth whitening treatments have advanced quite a bit in recent years, and at Andover Smiles, many patients are walking out of their dental appointments in just 20 minutes with a smile that is up to seven shades brighter. If you have found yourself hiding your smile because of stains, then you might be the perfect candidate for in-office teeth whitening.
A Lifetime of Stains
While our teeth might appear to be glossy and smooth, they are actually quite porous. These microscopic holes can fill up with food debris, and daily brushing is not always enough to keep our teeth as white as we would like. As time goes on, our daily habits can result in yellowish or brown stains that are unsightly and embarrassing. Once the stains have set in, then it is time to start thinking about whitening products and treatments.
Home Whitening Kits
There are thousands of teeth whitening products ranging from gels and solutions to mouthwash and specialty toothpaste. While some of these products have the ability to remove minor stains, they are not always safe. Most over-the-counter whitening agents utilize very strong chemicals to lift stains. When this process is not overseen by a professional, the results can be disastrous. Patients will often find themselves struggling with damaged enamel and severe tooth sensitivity. This is why so many people have found it safer, easier and more effective to go with a professional whitening system.
A Look at Professional Teeth Whitening
Our dental team will carefully apply a special whitening gel to each individual tooth in order to avoid gum irritation. Once on the teeth, the gel will be activated with a specialty LED light that reduces the treatment time. Within just minutes, the average patient will have a noticeably whiter smile as they walk out of their appointment. Even more impressive is the longevity of these treatments. By sticking to our dentist’s aftercare suggestions, you can avoid future stains for months at a time.
What Can I Expect?
Patients will first need to speak with our dentist to see if they would make a good candidate for teeth whitening. As long as the individual is in relatively good health with no major oral diseases, then they will most likely make a great candidate for professional teeth whitening. The whitening appointment itself has absolutely no downtime. Patients will be able to relax in a chair as multiple layers of stains are removed from their teeth.
