Get ready to dazzle them all when you get professional teeth whitening in Gainesville.
It’s not too surprising that we put a lot of value on our smiles. If your Gainesville, VA dentist Dr. Steve Pleickhardt were to ask people what they would change about their smiles we bet may people would say that they want to get whiter and more radiant teeth. If you are happy with the overall shape of your smile but would like to brighten your teeth and remove yellowing and stains then teeth whitening might be the best option for you.
What stains can professional whitening tackle?
It’s true that our system offers the strongest bleaching gel that you can get. This coupled with the chairside laser we use to active the gel and speed up the whitening process ensures that patients get beautiful results in under an hour. Of course, there are certain stains that will respond better to teeth whitening than others including stains caused by:
- Foods/drinks (wine, tomato sauce, tea, coffee, etc.)
Internal stains caused by trauma, excessive exposure to fluoride or certain medications do not respond as well to teeth whitening as external stains will. Of course, there are other cosmetic dentistry treatments that can get your smile more radiant so don’t hesitate to talk to your Gainesville cosmetic dentist about other options.
Why choose in-office whitening?
We know that there are many ways to whiten smiles, from using whitening toothpastes to opting for at-home systems, but if you are looking to get a significantly brighter smile in under one hour then you’ll want to come in for in-office whitening. You may spend more for this treatment than you would with commercial products but many patients agree that the results are well worth it.
In-office whitening is designed to brighten and remove stains from the front eight teeth. In some instances it can even get smiles up to 10 shades brighter. Plus we are trained to handle any issues that may arise, including tooth sensitivity (which is much harder to control when using at-home whitening systems).
These results can also last up to two years if you maintain good oral hygiene, avoid stain-producing foods and smoking, and continue to visit us every six months for routine cleanings and exams.
Professional teeth whitening has been giving countless people brilliant smiles and you could be next. To find out if you’re a good candidate for whitening call American Dental today.
