Don’t you want a quick and simple solution to get a more vibrant smile? We thought so!
Have at-home whitening kits from your local drugstore and whitening toothpastes just not given you the results that you had hoped for? Do you still notice yellow, stained teeth from all those years of coffee drinking? If you are looking for a quick fix then it’s the perfect time to turn to our Mount Pleasant, SC, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Cynthia Garner, to learn more about in-office teeth whitening.
How does professional teeth whitening work?
There is a reason teeth whitening has become one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry options in Mount Pleasant. After all, this is one amazing and fast way to remove dental stains and to get a more vibrant smile that you’ll actually notice.
Of course, there are many different reasons why teeth can stain and turn yellow over the years, including:
- Certain foods and drinks
- Taking antibiotic for long periods of time
- Trauma to a tooth
- Excessive fluoride intake
- Tobacco consumption
Professional teeth whitening works by breaking up the stain molecules that have formed on the enamel, or outer portion of your tooth. Stains caused by smoking or by consuming certain foods and drinks like red wine or coffee can be broken up successfully with our in-office system.
Not only that, but the inner portion of the tooth soaks up the hydrogen or carbamide peroxide (the active ingredient) found within the whitening gel to make the tooth appear lighter and more radiant.
What whitening option is right for me?
The choice you make about whether in-office or at-home whitening is right for you is one you can discuss with our Mount Pleasant cosmetic dentist before you take the plunge. If you have some pretty serious stains then you may want to consider getting in-office whitening because the bleaching gel is much stronger, so you’ll see results more quickly.
However, if you are looking to save some money while also getting a brighter smile then you may just want to consider the at-home whitening approach (and no this doesn’t mean those over-the-counter whitening kits you’ve been using). Your dentist also offers an at-home system that is much stronger than anything you’ll get in your oral care aisle. Custom whitening trays coupled with strong whitening gel ensures that you see results with continued use in just a couple of weeks.
