While you can pick up over-the-counter options to brighten teeth, these strips and toothpastes could offer less-than-stellar results. But we have two different professional teeth whitening options to brighten smiles by several shades. In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist talks about professional teeth whitening!
The Causes of Your Teeth Stains
Our teeth can become discolored for several reasons. For example, a diet high in sugar and starch, combined with poor brushing and flossing habits, could allow plaque buildup to form, making stains more visible. Drinks with dark pigments, such as soda, red wine, coffee, and tea, could also discolor your smile. Tobacco use is a factor too. Lack of dental cleaning could also allow stains to form and stay on your smile. But with our professional teeth whitening systems, we can offer a brighter smile, sometimes in only one visit.
The Sinsational Smile System
Our in-office procedure only takes a single sitting to complete, and could leave your smile several shades brighter. With the Sinsational Smile system, we will provide a pre-filled silicone tray that will coat your teeth with a powerful bleaching gel when worn. A unique LED light is used to activate the gel, breaking up stains. When the procedure ends, we will send you with a special pen to conduct touch-ups as needed in the months to come. If you need fast results, for example, if you have a graduation ceremony, job interview or first date on the horizon, this can help.
Take-Home Whitening Trays
Our team could also brighten smiles with a take-home option. You only come to the office for a short period, so our team can take impressions with digital technology and create a set of plastic trays. You then bring these trays home with you, along with plastic syringes filled with a powerful bleaching gel. The trays are then filled with gel and worn for about 30 to 45 minutes a day, or possibly overnight, depending on our recommendations. The total treatment period takes one to two weeks. For some, teeth could be eight shades brighter. The trays and any remaining gel are then yours to use as needed in the months to come, keeping your teeth bright. The system can also limit the risk of tooth sensitivity, which is often a complication of store bought systems.
