Patients often desire a whiter smile. With many options for whitening treatments, how do you know which one is best for you? There are many over-the-counter teeth whitening options available that promise results fast. The problem is that the store bought brands are simply not strong enough, nor do they provide the long-lasting results that patient’s desire.
First, let us take a look at why your teeth become stained and dingy.
Why are my teeth dingy?
Teeth become stained from various factors including:
- Tobacco (smoking and chewing)
- Poor oral hygiene
Although good oral hygiene can help keep staining to a minimum, it is certain that nearly everyone experiences yellowish teeth at some point in their lives. Brushing with over-the-counter toothpaste with whitening agents can only do so much before you decide to undergo something stronger to reveal a gorgeous, timeless smile.
Your cosmetic dentist in Nashville offers a professional grade whitening agent that delivers what you expect, which is fast, long-term results. Professional whitening treatments are also much safer than over-the-counter whitening products that can lead to significant tooth sensitivity. You will also find that in the long run, professional treatments are a much more economical option as opposed to the store bought treatments.
Teeth Whitening Process
We begin by providing you with a personalized consultation in which your Nashville cosmetic dentist will discuss your goals for an improved smile. Then, the safest whitening solution is chosen for your needs. The whitening process can take place during your lunch break or in as little as an hour or less. We will be sure that you remain comfortable throughout your procedure as we apply the whitening agent and wait for the solution to take effect.
How long before I see results?
Patients typically see results after their first treatment, while some may require more professional treatments to achieve their desired results.
At-home Whitening Options
For your convenience, we also offer custom-made bleaching trays that we design for you in our office while you wait. This way, you can take your whitening solution and trays home with you to whiten on your own time. You may even need to use these trays for touch-ups in between your professional whitening treatments to your Nashville dentist.
Why are professional treatments better than the store bought kind?
Store bought treatments are designed as a one-size-fits-all solution, which means that the whitening agent is typically much weaker than compared to what you would receive from your dentist. With that being said, those store-bought varieties of teeth whitening kits certainly can provide some changes in the shade of your teeth, but you likely will not experience any dramatic changes or achieve that “Hollywood” smile look that most people are seeking.
