Do you desire a brighter smile but have had poor results from whitening toothpastes and strips? At Bella Dentistry in Royalton and Athens, your dentist, Dr. Chanda Bennett, sees wonderful results with professional teeth whitening treatments. Budget-friendly and safe for your tooth enamel and gums, whitening creates the smile dazzle people love.
What causes those dental stains?
Food particles, tobacco smoke, coffee, sports drinks, prescription meds--you name it, and your porous tooth enamel holds onto it. Of course, brushing, flossing and periodic cleanings with your Athens dentist help clean out those residues, but some are stubborn. Add the passage of time, and you've got the recipe for a yellowed, dull smile.
The benefits of teeth whitening
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry says most people would love to improve their tooth color. Fortunately, professional teeth whitening is simple, cost-sparing and very effective in reaching that goal.
Better than over the counter strips and rinses, whitening treatments from your Athens dentist lift stains right out of tooth surfaces. Plus, professional whitening causes none of the sensitivity issues retail products can. In other words, it's very safe.
Dr. Bennett offers both in-office and at-home whitening. In-office treatments are fast, taking just about an hour. They use concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel to bleach out stains and rinse them safely away. At-home treatments involve use of acrylic trays custom-fit to apply the gel directly to your teeth. You wear them daily as prescribed and see excellent color improvement in about a week.
How bright will your new smile be? Most people see changes of about eight shades of color. Of course, results vary, but typically, patients love what they see when they look into a mirror.
Finally, smiles stay bright for months to even years when you use these reasonable strategies:
- Avoid tobacco completely.
- Drink your coffee and tea with a straw.
- Brush two times a day for two minutes.
- Floss daily.
- See Dr. Bennett for six-month cleanings and examinations. She may recommend whitening touch-ups from time to time.
