When people meet you, what is one of the first things they notice? Studies show that it’s your smile. When you smile with ease, it portrays confidence and can have a positive impact on both your personal and professional relationships. If your teeth are discolored or not as bright as they used to be, you may be hiding your smile without even realizing it. This could be creating the wrong first impression. Staining or dulling of your teeth is quite common and happens naturally over time with age. However, lifestyle choices such as smoking, tobacco use, and the foods and beverages you consume also affect the brightness of your teeth. Teeth whitening can help correct these issues and restore your bright smile quickly and affordably.
At Smith Dentalworks, we offer a few convenient options that you can choose from depending on your lifestyle, budget, and goals:
Patients who have a big event coming up might require immediate results. Our in-office whitening can meet their needs with results that are six to eight shades lighter after only one or two visits to our office. We use a highly-concentrated gel that is not available over-the-counter so you can get whiter teeth more quickly. We always protect your gums and often pair these treatments with fluoride to strengthen your teeth and prevent damage.
Patients who prefer to whiten their teeth at home will appreciate custom take-home whitening trays. We will create custom trays that are made using impressions of your teeth. This ensures a snug fit that provides better results and protection from excess whitening gel leaking onto your gums or other soft tissues. Take-home trays also give you the option of whitening your smile in the future for easy touch-ups.
We also offer ready-to-use trays that provide reliable results in a cost-effective manner. These teeth whitening kits are not fitted to your smile, but they still provide safe and effective results. Since they are not molded for you specifically, they are a faster option than custom trays.
It’s true that there are lots of teeth whitening solutions that bombard you when you go to the grocery store. Why not choose one of these quick options?
Consider these facts first when choosing your whitening system:
Teeth whitening is a great option for many patients who want a brighter smile. However, it is not suited for everyone. This is one of the benefits of seeing a dentist for whitening treatments. Dr. Smith will be able to help you determine if this is the right choice for you. If you have sensitive teeth, you may want to try other cosmetic dentistry options such as veneers to achieve your ideal smile. Our team will work with you to determine the treatment or combinations of treatments that can help you get the best possible results.
