Residents in Cary and communities all over the country are visiting their dentists wishing they had a whiter smile. This is no surprise, as teeth whitening is one of the fastest and most affordable ways to improve the esthetics of your smile. Deciding which system to use can be overwhelming. With so many available drug store methods, it’s easy to see how one would have a hard time choosing. At Holistic Dental Centers, we can provide our patients the convenience of whitening at home combined with the power of a professional bleaching agent.
All patients who come to the office for teeth whitening services will begin with an evaluation. One of the things we determine first is the cause of the stains. Some discoloration is resistant to teeth whitening, so we may recommend alternatives such as dental veneers for those patients. Women who are pregnant are not candidates for teeth whitening, and we advise all of our patients that dental restorations do not respond to teeth whitening. Crowns, fillings, or veneers will appear dark after whitening treatments. Patients who are worried about this can have the old dental work changed to match the newly whitened teeth.
Oral health problems such as untreated cavities or gum disease will need to be taken care of prior to receiving whitening treatment.
Once it is determined that you are a candidate for teeth whitening, we will begin the process of fitting you for your custom at home trays. One of the biggest draws of over-the-counter whitening kits is their ability to be done comfortably at home. We’ve extended this convenience by giving patients a professional strength option that can be done at home. Unlike their counterparts with a one size fits all tray, professional whitening kits have trays that are made from impressions of your teeth. This means that your whitening trays are unique to you and will whiten evenly. In addition, the bleaching formula is much stronger to help you achieve a real show-stopping smile.
If you are ready for your brand new smile, call us today to find out if teeth whitening is right for you.
