When considering cosmetic dental procedures, teeth whitening is a go-to treatment for patients looking to non-invasively transform their smiles. Where other cosmetic dental procedures may require altering the structure of teeth, whitening is topically applied and is gentle on dental enamel.
Improving your smile doesn’t have to be a complicated process.
At Pearl Dentistry, we offer teeth whitening solutions to help our valued patients effectively and safely lighten their smiles. With these flexible treatment options, patients no longer need to hide discolored or yellowed teeth. At Pearl Dentistry, we believe that improving your smile should be effective and affordable.
To get the whiter, brighter smile you need, our office can help you find the best teeth whitening procedure for your teeth.
Whether your teeth are stained, dull, or discolored, we have the whitening solution for you.
WHAT IS TEETH WHITENING?
Teeth whitening procedures can be used to correct the effects of:
- Effects of food
- Tobacco Stains
Using ‘whitening toothpaste’ may only result in minor and temporary changes, but this option is not strong enough to get you the right results.
Professional teeth whitening is the most effective and safest option available to improve the brightness of your teeth. With the proper treatment, teeth whitening can last as long as five years. Over-the-counter teeth whitening systems can also be somewhat effective if they are overseen by a dentist.
Results vary considerably from person to person, and these results are subjective. Several individuals are immediately delighted with their outcome, while others may be disappointed. Before you commence your whitening treatment, ask any of our dentists for a reasonable idea of the results you are likely to get and how long it would take to achieve them.
The flexibility of our treatments makes teeth whitening an ideal option for individuals with busy and hectic schedules. At our Uptown Charlotte dental practice, we offer both take-home and in-office teeth whitening treatments. Both options provide remarkable results and give our patients the option to complete professional treatment from the comfort of their own home or in our office for same-day care.
RISKS OF TEETH WHITENING
When followed as directed by your dentist, teeth whitening treatments are considered to be a safe option. However, there are certain risks associated with teeth whitening that you should be aware of, such as gum irritation and sensitivity.
MAINTAINING THE RESULTS OF TEETH WHITENING
To extend the endurance of newly whitened teeth, Pearl Dentistry recommends:
- At-home follow-up or whitening maintenance performed immediately or as infrequently as once a year.
- Avoiding dark-colored foods and drinks for at least a week after whitening.
- Sipping dark-colored beverages with a straw, when possible.
- Practicing excellent oral hygiene, which means brushing and flossing after meals and at bedtime.
If you feel that you are ready to take the next step toward whiter teeth, let us help you find the best treatment option.
