A white smile can have a very profound effect on your life. It can make you more attractive, look younger, boost your career, and strengthen your relationships. Unfortunately, habits such as smoking and drinking coffee can prevent you from enjoying beautiful shiny teeth. These habits lead to yellowing of teeth which can make you feel insecure about smiling and lower self-esteem.
Grand View Family and Cosmetic Dentistry has just the solution for you: teeth whitening. We can restore your smile while ensuring your comfort while you are in our office.
Why Professional Teeth Whitening is the Best Option
Though it is tempting to purchase a do-it-yourself whitening kit from a drug store and do the procedure yourself, you should be aware that the American Dental Association (ADA) does not approve of the use of these kits and, in fact, deems it “dangerous” to do teeth whitening in an unsupervised environment. Many dentists, including Dr. Stephen Moore at Grand View Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, are qualified to carry out the tooth whitening process, ensuring patients’ safety as well as the best results.
Seeking professional teeth whitening will ensure your overall health since an experienced dentist can determine whether or not you are actually a suitable candidate for the procedure. For instance, if your discolored teeth are the result of taking certain medicines, do-it-yourself whitening products likely won’t produce the results you’re looking for. Your dentist may have other non-tooth whitening options that will ensure that your teeth are healthy as well as white. The best way to know for sure is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Stephen Moore, DDS, at Grand View Family and Cosmetic Dentistry.
What to Expect During the Procedure
In most cases, Dr. Moore will begin the whitening procedure by cleaning your teeth. If you have been keeping your regularly scheduled cleaning appointments, abrasion may be sufficient to produce noticeable results. If the stains persist after polishing, whitening products will be used. Depending on your schedule, we can carry out the procedure in-office or provide you with a customized home whitening kit.
During the in-office procedure, we will put a strong whitening gel on your teeth and activate and accelerate the effect of the gel with a special light. Most patients will notice results after one appointment. Some patients may require several treatments to achieve optimal results depending on the depth and type of stains being treated.
If you opt for at-home whitening, we will make custom-made trays which will fit comfortably over your teeth. Dr. Moore will tell you how much gel to apply to these trays and how to place them on your teeth for best results. You will still need to visit your dentist to show your results.
The results of professional teeth whitening can last longer than at-home products, but only if you stay away from habits and foods that can stain your teeth. If you wish to discuss ways you can keep your teeth healthy and white, so do not hesitate to ask your dentist for guidance.
