If your teeth are stained or maybe not as sparkly white as you’d like them to be, then professional teeth whitening is a great way to improve the brilliance of your smile. Yellow or mottled teeth can ruin your facial appearance, making you look older than you are. You likely also feel self-conscious about your smile, leading to an avoidance of social situations. While there are ready-made kits available to whiten your teeth at home, the solutions in these products are comparatively ineffective. You may in turn experience pain in your soft oral tissues from the harsh chemicals. In some cases, you will experience uneven whitening of the dental enamel that makes your teeth look worse than before the treatment. The adhesive whitening strips or mouth molds that are in the do-it-yourself teeth whitening kits won’t remove the stains that are located between your teeth or along the gums.
Undergo a Complete Dental Examination before the Professional Whitening Process
However, at Midway Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Alpharetta, Ga., you can undergo a complete dental examination with medical images before having your teeth whitened. If you have cavities, tooth damage or gingivitis, then you will be presented with treatment options for these conditions before having your teeth whitened. Our dentists will help you understand how to protect your dental restorations to prevent any damage from the professional teeth whitening, and we will also protect your sensitive gum tissues so that you won’t have any allergic reactions to the chemicals used during the procedure.
We Use a Patented Product to Improve the Appearance of Your Teeth
At our dental office, we only use the GLO Science products that are patented, making the treatments unique, effective and safe to use. With light-emitting diodes that warm the whitening solution, it is possible to have a better result from the treatment. The LED light technology also reduces the treatment time while preventing any irritation of the gum’s sensitive tissues. The in-office dental kit includes a mouthpiece that emits a blue LED light along with controlled heat to eliminate the stains on the dental enamel of your teeth.
The In-office Whitening Kit Includes a Special Mouthpiece
The substances used for our professional teeth whitening are shipped in individual vials so that the chemicals remain fresh and effective. Our dental staff will apply the whitening chemicals to your teeth before inserting the comfortable mouthpiece that will emit heat and light, helping to remove the stains from tobacco, beverages, foods and medications. During this procedure, you can listen to soothing music or watch a television program. It is important to relax throughout the procedure to avoid any facial pain that can be caused by clenching your jaw.
Our Dental Office Whitening Process Is Fast and Easy
You may feel a slight bubbling sensation inside your mouth as the peroxide reacts with the saliva that is produced by your salivary glands. It is okay to continue swallowing during this procedure, and you won’t feel any discomfort during the procedure. While it can require multiple treatments at home with ready-made kits, at Midway Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, you can see amazing results in less than an hour. You can rinse your mouth and brush your teeth to see how much whiter your teeth are, including along the gums and between your teeth.
How Can You Keep Your Teeth White and Beautiful?
The good news is that if you are careful about avoiding highly pigmented beverages and foods, you can keep your teeth whiter for a longer amount of time. You should also avoid bad habits, such as smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco so that your teeth will remain healthy and attractive. It is possible to repeat professional teeth whitening with our dentist’s approval and a new examination to determine if your gums and teeth are healthy enough for the procedure.
