Professional tooth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in the world today—more popular than crowns, veneers, or even Invisalign tooth straightening! We are happy to offer both in-office tooth whitening and take-home whitening trays to our Statesville patients. Both options are powerful teeth whitening options which yield noticeable, long-lasting results. Keep reading to learn more about our Statesville tooth whitening services.
If yur teeth are yellowed or stained, you may be tempted to resolve the problem with an over-the-counter whitening toothpaste or whitening strips. However, bear in mind that “you get what you pay for” definitely applies in this situation. Although drugstore whitening products are more affordable, they tend to only yield results in patients with mild discolorations. Drugstore products also only remove surface stains, while professional tooth whitening penetrates beneath the surface enamel to remove deeper stains.
In addition, cumbersome mouth trays and irritating strips may produce uneven outcomes. Since drugstore whitening products are “one-size-fits-all”, they might slip around your mouth, or even leak bleaching product into the back of your throat.
Since dentists are able to carefully monitor our patients during the whitening treatment, we are able to prescribe more powerful whitening agents than those that are sold in stores. If you want a bright, white smile that is immediately noticeable, drugstore solutions simply can’t compare.
Even if you choose not to take advantage of our professional whitening services, we encourage you to schedule a dental exam and cleaning prior to using any whitening product. This is because the bleaching agents in whitening products can cause extreme pain to patients with undiagnosed dental conditions, like cavities or gingivitis. Make sure you have the green-light from your dentist before applying anything to your teeth!
