Enhancing your smile can be a truly life-changing experience. It can boost your confidence and increase your self-esteem. Holistic Dental Centers, with North Carolina offices conveniently located in both Cornelius and Cary, offer an easy way for patients to improve their smiles. Teeth whitening is one of the fastest, and most affordable methods of smile enhancement available today.
Studies have found that more people are keeping their teeth longer, and as these individuals age, so does the appearance of their teeth. After years of exposure to staining foods and beverages, the discoloration builds up and dulls the color of the teeth. A teeth whitening treatment, supervised by a dentist, is an easy, safe, and effective way to eliminate these types of stains.
Advantages of professionally supervised home teeth whitening
Home teeth whitening (tray bleaching) is the most popular dentist-supervised treatment, for a number of reasons:
- Cost – It is considerably less expensive than in-office whitening.
- Convenience – You can whiten in the comfort of your own home, on your own time schedule.
- Maintenance – The trays and gel can be used for touch-ups when something stains the teeth.
- Longevity – Home whitening provides longer-lasting results because it breaks up stains deeper in the enamel. Some of the brilliant white effects achieved with in-office whitening are actually due to teeth dehydration caused by heat, and as the teeth rehydrate, the brilliance fades.
- Flexibility – If the tooth discoloration is persistent, the treatment time can be extended to improve the outcome.
Disadvantages of in-office teeth whitening
The doctors at Holistic Dental Centers are committed to providing the very best for every patient. In-office teeth whitening treatments are not offered because office bleaching is largely ineffective and very costly. While not toxic, it doesn’t give the long-term advantage that home bleaching does. In-office treatments work for a wow factor, but don’t leave a lasting effect. Even the wow factor has a downside; the sudden change in tooth color is glaringly obvious to others.
