When it comes to teeth, most people feel that brighter is better. Everyone wants to have a smile that dazzles; yellow or dull-looking teeth aren’t an option for folks who truly want to look their best and turn heads wherever they go. But how can you obtain that Hollywood-level glow? We recommend that you skip the OTC products and opt for professional teeth whitening at Northtowne Dental instead.
PROFESSIONAL WHITENING OFFERS THE MOST DRAMATIC RESULTS
OTC whitening products deliver a modicum of effectiveness at best. Rinses and toothpastes that claim to brighten teeth do little more than remove surface stains. White strips might provide noticeable results, but they still fall short of providing the sparkle you’re after. Other products, like charcoal toothpaste and whitening gum, do next to nothing to whiten teeth despite sensational claims.
Professional whitening is the best way to get results you can count on. A single in-office treatment may lighten your teeth by up to eight shades!
PROFESSIONAL WHITENING IS FAST
If you have a special event coming up, the last thing you want to do is rush to the local grocery store, load up on whitening products that may or may not work, and then wait to see if your teeth get any brighter before your big day.
With a professional treatment from your cosmetic dentist in Greensboro, you can enjoy same-day results. After undergoing a simple process that may only take about an hour or so, your teeth can possess the radiance that you’ve always dreamed about!
Of course, if you’re not in any hurry to get results, professional whitening is still the best choice. Your dentist can provide you with a take-home kit that includes a strong bleaching gel and special trays. In just a couple of weeks, your smile may be several shades brighter.
PROFESSIONAL WHITENING IS SAFE
Most OTC bleaching products are safe — if you use them properly. As long as you follow directions and pick a product that has the American Dental Association seal of approval, you should be just fine. However, there are still risks. For example, white strips may irritate your gums, and accidentally overusing whitening products may make your teeth very sensitive.
Before your dentist gives you the go-head for professional whitening, they’ll make sure your oral health is good enough to stand up to the procedure. The risks are next to nothing, and any sensitivity you experience should be temporary.
YOUR DENTIST CAN COMPLETE YOUR SMILE MAKEOVER
Whitening your teeth can make them look a lot better, but sometimes you need extra attention to get the grin you’re after. For example, some types of stains may not respond to bleaching products, or your teeth may be crooked, misshapen, or have unsightly gaps. Your dentist can talk to you about porcelain veneers or other treatments that can fix all of your smile’s issues.
