Dr. Carl McMillan of the Holistic Dental Centers welcome patients from Charlotte, NC to visit their practice to learn about teeth whitening methods.
Teeth whitening, also referred to as teeth bleaching, is done to rejuvenate the smile when staining and discoloration become a serious problem. It is often the first step in enhancing the natural smile before other cosmetic dentistry solutions are considered. Some patients only need to brighten their smile to make a dramatic improvement in the way it looks.
While there are teeth whitening kits and products available in the local drugstore oral health care aisle, many of these fall short of producing serious, noticeable results. Dr. Carl McMillan speaks to many adults who have been dissatisfied with the results they have achieved with these over-the-counter solutions, if any. When patients are ready for some serious rejuvenation, professional-grade products are the way to go.
Professional-grade teeth whitening products are much stronger in concentration, thus provide faster results that are more effective. Additionally, the results of these tray-whitening kits available through the dental practice are longer lasting than store-bought treatments as well as many dental offices’ “in-office power bleaching.” In-office treatments are incredibly pricey and do not provide long-term results, while also leaving many patients with very sensitive teeth.
Instead, the team of Holistic Dental Centers encourages patients to contact their practice to learn about custom whitening kits. Using impressions of the dental arches, patients can have their own trays made to form to their teeth and provide optimum coverage of the whitening gel. Patients are educated by their dentist about how to apply the gel into the trays and how long to wear them each day for desired results.
While there are many methods of teeth whitening available to patients in and out of our dental practice, we highly recommend professional-grade whitening trays and gel as they can dramatically enhance the smile effectively, affordably, and safely without any side effects or problems. Patients will quickly see the results and enjoy the fact that they invested in the health, wellness, and beauty of their smiles!
