Say goodbye to your discolorations and yellowing teeth with professional teeth whitening.
If your Pinterest searches consist of a variety of at-home whitening tips and tricks, then chances are good that you’ve been trying everything under the sun to get your smile whiter. Of course, a lot of these remedies don’t offer the visible results that most people are looking for. If you are finding yourself disappointed with the whitening treatments you’ve tried, our Cordova, TN, cosmetic dentist Dr. Jason Botts is here to help.
What is professional teeth whitening?
This cosmetic treatment is so popular because it not only instantly removes stains but it also lightens the actual shade of your teeth. Through high-quality whitening gels (and sometimes a dental laser), whiter results are visible after just one treatment.
How does it work?
In order for whitening gel to be successful, it requires an active whitening ingredient. If you use over-the-counter whitening kits you may notice hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide being listed as one of the main ingredients. These are the most common active ingredients found in whitening gels. Of course, the whitening gels used by our Cordova, TN, dentist is much stronger than anything you’ll find in your local oral care aisle. Because of this, the results you’ll obtain with our in-office system is faster and more significant than at-home options.
How long will my results last?
A lot of this will depend on you. If you are someone who continues to brush and floss regularly, continues to visit us for routine exams and cleanings, and avoids stain-causing foods and drinks (e.g. red wine; coffee; tomato sauce) then you could enjoy your whiter smile for up to one year or more.
You can also choose to get our at-home whitening system for touch-ups and to help maintain your results for longer or you may choose to use whitening toothpaste every time you brush to prevent new stains from forming.
Is teeth whitening right for me?
If your smile has started to dull over the years this could be due to consuming lots of stain-causing foods and drinks over the years or from bad habits like smoking. If you have yellow or even brown stains that you wish to treat, then getting your teeth professionally whitened might be the most effective option for removing these stains.
