Do you feel like your smile has lost some of its luster? Chances are if you are interested in whitening your teeth, you have already noticed that the drug store shelves are filled with products claiming to put the sparkle back in your smile. From toothpastes to strips and dental trays, there seems to be a big push for “do-it-yourself” methods of whitening.
Before you are lured into the appeal of a cheap way of whitening your teeth, there are a few things to consider. Most patients who come to us after trying over-the-counter whitening methods are less than enthusiastic about the results and sometimes they even cause increased tooth sensitivity or gum pain. Over-the-counter methods are one size fits all. If you really want to get results that you can count on, your best option is teeth whitening treatment under the care of a professional like Dr. Vines.
Some of the many advantages of professional teeth whitening include:
- Treatment is customizable. Everyone who comes in for teeth whitening treatment is given an individualized evaluation. During this appointment, you will have the opportunity to share how much whiter you would like to see your teeth. The doctor will discuss the causes of your discoloration, the ability to correct it with whitening, and will help come up with a plan to improve your smile.
- There is less risk of sensitivity. Teeth whitening gel can be very powerful, and if not applied correctly, it can cause serious sensitivity issues with the teeth and gums. Teeth whitening performed under a professional like Dr. Vines ensures that the gums are properly protected during the entire process.
- You have someone to turn to with questions. By choosing to use professional whitening method from your dentist, you always have someone to call with questions or concerns.
