Anyone who has been down the toothpaste aisle at the grocery store knows there is a plethora of products that are available over the counter claiming to whiten teeth. Everything from toothpastes and gels, to trays and strips, all make the promise of dramatic, fast results. Many people are drawn into these claims and they feel there is no need to visit a dentist to achieve a whiter, brighter smile.
At Holistic Dental Centers, with offices in Cary and Cornelius, we have found that more often than not, the over the counter products that make these claims often don’t live up to their hype. They are typically one-size-fits all treatments, and therefore, in many cases the trays don’t fit properly, leading to leaking product, messy application, and uneven results.
We believe that teeth whitening is one of quickest and most cost effective ways to make dramatic improvements to your smile. With professional at-home kits, patients can achieve their desired results all in the comfort of their own home.
Teeth are porous, and because of this, small particles from the food and beverages we consume can settle into the enamel and stain teeth. Dark foods and beverages like red wine, coffee, tea, and pasta sauce are particularly prone to causing stains. We understand that it is not always possible to avoid the things you love, so teeth whitening is an excellent option to reverse the stains.
With our at home whitening kits, you will be fitted with custom whitening trays that are a precise fit for your mouth. The trays also help protect your gum tissue. The whitening gel, which is a much higher concentration than over the counter gels, can be worn at night while you sleep. In addition, the trays can be kept and worn for periodic touch ups after your initial treatment is complete.
With our at-home whitening treatment, you have the added advantage of being under the care of a professional who will ensure your teeth remain healthy during the entire process. We will often perform a professional cleaning prior to whitening treatments to ensure optimal results.
We believe that you deserve the smile you have always wanted. A smile that you are proud to share can boost your self-esteem and your confidence. If you are near the Raleigh area, call us today to learn more about our professional at-home teeth whitening methods.
