There are some difficulties we learn to live with, but did you know that living with a less-then-optimally-bright smile is not one of them? Teeth-whitening is the most common cosmetic dental procedure, so it’s easy to understand why you might wonder it it’s right for you. When it comes to a brighter smile, there are some who jump in and take the plunge, and others who have a list of questions to bring to their experienced cosmetic dentist in Cleveland, TX. Before you spend too much time clicking around on the internet, or asking your friends what they think, spend a few minutes gathering input from knowledgeable dental professionals.
Just How Does Teeth-Whitening Work?
The enamel of your teeth can become discolored over time, from the color molecules on the food and drink you consume. Dark sodas, coffee, tea, fruit juices and brightly colored foods of any type can result in teeth with a yellowish or off-color tinge. We use an in-office whitening system, that takes less than an hour. You will wear comfortable silicone trays, which allow your teeth to be exposed to a bleaching agent. A special LED light speeds along the process, leaving you with a smile that is several shades lighter than before. If you are concerned about the environment, you will be pleased to know that the process we use is certified eco-friendly.
It Sounds a Bit Self-Indulgent
There is no doubt that teeth-whitening is a gift to yourself. It can lead to a more confident smile, and holding your head high when meeting people or speaking with friends. Your family may appreciate it when you are not ducking out of photographs, or holding your hands in front of your smile. A confident smile can be a boost professionally and on social media as well.
Is It Going to Be Expensive?
As a cosmetic dental procedure, teeth-whitening is unlikely to be covered by insurance. We have experienced staff members who are available to discuss the costs of whitening options, and explore payment methods with you. We will never pressure you into a decision, but instead, we will provide you with information so you can make the best decision for yourself.
