Professional teeth whitening treatments in dental clinics are fast becoming the most dental popular procedure in the US based on a study conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). We all want a brighter and whiter smile as it would not only improve our looks, but also give us a huge boost in self-esteem and how we handle ourselves at work, in social settings, and at important occasions.
What are the advantages of in-office whitening?
The main advantage of having your teeth whitened at a dental clinic is that your dentist will supervise the entire process from start to finish. You’re assured that you’ll get the safest and most effective solution for discolored teeth.
Whitening your teeth at your dentist’s office will only take a few sessions, depending on how white you’ll want your smile to be. At most, you’ll see an instant improvement in the color of your smile after just your first whitening session, something that even the most expensive over-the-counter treatments can hardly provide.
You’re in safe hands with your Lincroft dentist as he’ll want to make sure that your smile is not only bright but healthy too. You’ll be recommended to undergo a complete examination and professional cleaning before the procedure so that your teeth and gums are cleaned and treated of any problems prior to treatment.
Your gums, lips, and cheeks are also protected during the application of the bleaching solution. You can’t get this extra protection when you use over-the-counter products. If there is any irritation or sensitivity, your dentist is at hand to adjust the treatment and take the necessary action to ensure that you remain comfortable during the procedure.
In-office teeth whitening is effective in removing stains caused by tobacco use, consumption of certain food and drinks and poor oral hygiene. Take note that you need to keep up with your oral hygiene and avoid food and beverages that can stain your teeth. You may need to quit smoking as it can blemish your teeth and cause oral problems.
