Here at Preston Smiles we believe that every patient should have the bright white smile they deserve.
Straight, white teeth are no longer just for celebrities. Advancements in dentistry over the last several years have made safer and more affordable for almost anyone wanting a brighter smile. Why is having a white smile important? According to a national survey by the American Academy of Dentistry, 96% of adults believe an attractive smile makes a person more appealing to the opposite gender, and 74% of adults feel an unattractive smile can hurt a person’s chances for career success. Having a clean, straight smile that you feel confident about enhances your social and career opportunities.
The most common one involves custom-made trays filled with bleaching solution that fit firmly over your teeth. Because your dentist supervises the procedure, a stronger bleaching solution can be used than what’s found in home kits. Your dentist may recommend doing everything in his office. In that case, a stronger gel maybe used speed up the process. Another option is to get fitted for custom-made whitening trays that you can use at home. Professional solutions used by your dentist are typically stronger than those in over-the-counter kits, so your teeth may whiten more quickly. He can also make sure that sensitive gums don’t get more irritated.
In office whitening is a proven solution for patients seeking much whiter teeth in a hurry. It is especially useful for people who smoke; take medications high in iron content, or for those who drink coffee, tea and/or red wine on a regular basis. In most cases, all it takes is just one visit to your dentist (usually only 1 or 2 hours) to get bright, sparkling teeth up to 2, 3 or even 4 shades whiter.
Women who are pregnant and children under the age of 13 should not receive teeth whitening treatment. And in some cases, the dentist may also recommend completing other necessary procedures before the teeth whitening in order to deal with other issues, such as cavities, tooth decay and gingivitis.
