Teeth Whitening Is Best Done By A Dentist
You know teeth whitening exists. And when you look in the bathroom mirror and see those dark, dingy teeth of yours, you start thinking if that’s something for you.
When it’s done right, teeth whitening can be life-changing. But there are many teeth whitening kits available in stores that just don’t do the job. They can be messy, confusing, and worst of all, they don’t get your teeth truly white.
By calling our Lincroft, NJ dental office today at 732-352-3903, you can make an appointment for professional-strength, safe teeth whitening. Our dentists are specifically trained in using cosmetic dentistry treatments like this. That means you can finally look in that bathroom mirror and love what you see.
The Many Benefits Of Teeth Whitening
What causes your teeth to lose their luster? While sometimes it’s the side effect of prescription medication, mostly it’s because of what you eat and drink. Anytime you enjoy dark foods or drinks (coffee, tomato sauce, wine, curry, tea, and more), they leave a tiny stain on your enamel. At first, you don’t notice anything — the stains are too small. But over the years, they build up until your teeth look dark.
Getting professional teeth whitening can do more than just lift those stains and brighten your smile:
- You can look years younger.
- Your self-esteem can improve because you know how you look better.
- You can make better first-impressions.
- You can feel less anxiety when speaking to others, especially groups.
That’s why you need to call Newman Springs Dental Care today. Dark, stained teeth can sap your confidence. But once you’ve gotten your bright smile back thanks to our cosmetic dentistry treatments, you’ll have that confidence back.
Problems With Teeth Whitening Kits
Those teeth whitening kits found in stores might be cheaper, but you often get what you pay for. Here are several reasons why those kits just aren’t worth it.
Normally, you cannot get the bleaching agent in teeth whitening systems without a prescription. Then why can you buy them in stores? Because manufacturers dilute the bleaching agent until it’s legally permitted to sell over the counter. That means these teeth whitening kits deliver poor results. To get truly white teeth, you’ll have to buy and use them repeatedly.
That bleaching agent is specifically designed to lift stains off tough enamel. That means it’s definitely not made for your gums. But when you use a teeth whitening kit, you’re the dentist. If you get too much on your gums, you could irritate and damage them. Remember how you’ll have to use these kits repeatedly to get great results?
Because you have to be the dentist for these kits, that means you really cannot make mistakes. Doing so could hurt your gums or give you uneven results. But the problem here is that you have to rely on tiny and confusing directions printed on folded paper or even the side of a box.
Professional Teeth Whitening Is Best
That’s why you really need to contact Newman Springs Dental Care today for professional teeth whitening. Our dentists have training and experience in this cosmetic dentistry treatment, meaning you can get excellent results.
Here’s how your Lincroft dentists will get your teeth whitened:
- Trays are made that will fit your teeth in particular.
- A protective gel is applied to your gums to keep them safe.
- A bleaching agent is added to the trays, and they’re placed over your teeth.
- In certain cases, a laser is used to activate the bleaching agent.
And you are done!
Teeth whitening is not a permanent cosmetic dentistry solution, so you’ll be given some supplies to take home and touch up your whitening every now and then.
