A brighter smile, without the risk: Why you should consult a dentist for teeth whitening


Why You Should Consult a Dentist for Teeth Whitening
There is a dizzying array of toothpastes, strips, pens, kits, and even lipsticks that promise whiter teeth; yet, a smile free of stains and discoloration remains elusive for many people. The products you buy at the drugstore or online may not have the right ingredients to noticeably improve the color of your teeth. Even if those products include proven ingredients like carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide, they may not be present at high enough concentrations to lift stains and discoloration. For yet another reason why you should consult a dentist for teeth whitening, dental professionals such as Dr. Terry Vines put the health of your teeth and gums first. Regardless of whether you select in-office whitening or home whitening, or a combination of both methods, you can trust that the treatment will produce whiter teeth without the risks.


You can’t beat the safety that comes with applying powerful, proven whitening agents in a controlled manner, within a medical environment, and by a trained and licensed dental professional. For instance, Zoom Advanced Power bleaching is a chairside treatment that starts with preparing your mouth. Your lips, gums, and other oral tissues are protected before the hydrogen peroxide gel is precisely and uniformly applied to your teeth. The light-activated gel then goes to work, enabling the stain-fighter hydrogen peroxide to penetrate the tooth, enter the enamel, and clear stain molecules without damaging or modifying the tooth’s structure.

Furthermore, the products that Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry use for patients in and around the Redlands and Highland CA area are vetted thoroughly. As dental professionals, the team has many tools and products to combat sensitivity, such as a sensitivity-calming fluoride paste, which may be applied immediately following your office treatment. Prescription products are also the result of years of research and development. These advanced products are designed to minimize the odds of developing gum- or tooth-related sensitivity, among the biggest drawbacks that have historically kept patients from moving forward with chairside treatments to restore the natural whiteness of their teeth (or to bleach teeth whiter than their natural color). Moreover, you aren’t trusting the beauty and health of your smile to questionable ingredients that can have larger, longer-term, oral health-related implications.

Custom-fit trays

Dr. Vines is not only equipped to prescribe and tailor the whitening gel to your needs and goals for treatment, but the whitening tray is also customized to the unique contours and specifications of your mouth. A tray that resembles a mouthguard is designed from a mold or impression of your mouth. At home, you’ll fill that tray with whitening gel as instructed by your dentist and as specified in the information provided with your home whitening kit. Since the kit is fitted specifically to your mouth, the gel is delivered evenly to your teeth. So, you get a beautiful and natural-looking result! The trays that you buy online or at the mall are not designed to your mouth’s unique features. When you fill these one-size-fits-all trays with whitening gel, the ingredients responsible for lifting your stains aren’t delivered to your teeth precisely, which can result in uneven application. You may not be able to tolerate OTC trays, because they also tend to rub up against your teeth, gums, and the inside of your mouth.

Natural desirable results

One of the biggest benefits of trusting your teeth and gums to the experts is the consultation. Dr. Vines and his team get to know you and account for many considerations when prescribing tailored treatment, including:

  • The state of your teeth and gums
  • Personal characteristics, such as skin tone and the color of the whites of your eyes
  • The level of whitening that you prefer

With oral health at the heart of all we do, Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry know that disease and decay must be resolved before moving forward with treatments such as whitening that can make existing conditions worse. We’ll also work with you to discuss the many ways to maintain the results from whitening treatments. Maintaining routine check-ups and professional cleanings at our office is one of the most important ways to keep your teeth healthy and attractively white.
