Is your smile getting you noticed for all the wrong reasons?
The way you look is one of the first things people notice about you, and a mouthful of discolored teeth will not do you any favors on your first impression. In contrast, a bright, healthy-looking smile will give you a radiant, youthful look.
Teeth yellow for a variety of reasons, including age, your diet, nicotine use and a morning coffee addiction. However, restoring your smile to its previous gleam is easier than you think, so long as you seek out the aid of our in-office whitening services at Austin Dental Care.
Why In-Office Teeth Whitening?
There have never been more options for home-based teeth whitening treatments, but none of them can match the quality and long-lasting results of professional service instead. In-house teeth whitening is the most popular dental procedure in the world today, and carefully monitored conditions in a controlled environment ensures that you will notice a difference in your tooth coloring within moments.
In-office tooth whitening with a professional dental staff is the preferred way to brighten your smile because we can use stronger agents than are available in drugstore kits and ensure that the entire procedure is safe and effective from start to finish.
Unlike home-based kits, Austin Dental Care teeth whitening services will:
- Provide faster results
- Ensure your bleaching process is completely safe
- Avoid triggering gum and tooth sensitivity (thanks to better peroxide gels)
How We Whiten Your Teeth for Real Results
When you come into our office for a teeth whitening appointment, we will evaluate the state of your teeth to come up with a custom whitening strategy that will give you the results you are seeking.
In most cases, this involves a hydrogen-peroxide treatment with a whitening gel plus a buffer in place to protect your enamel from any unwanted sensitivity. Your dentist will leave the gel on your teeth for up to half an hour to ensure that the active ingredients have time to work. After the time has passed, you can evaluate the hue of your teeth and decide if another round is needed to achieve the color you want.
These procedures are so effective that you will notice a transformation in your teeth within minutes, and your teeth can be as much as ten shades brighter within an hour. Afterwards, the results will last for one or more years, ensuring your smile makes the right impression on everyone you meet.
Are You a Candidate for Professional Teeth Whitening?
Getting your teeth professionally whitened is a highly beneficial procedure. However, it is not for everyone. In-house teeth whitening might not be best for you if you have:
- Hypersensitive teeth and gums: in this case, a take-home kit with less potency might be better.
- Deep staining: Peroxide whitening will only remove surface stains from your enamel, and it cannot change the color of deeper parts of your teeth
- Crowns, implants or veneers: porcelain will not bleach like natural teeth, which might leave the colors in your mouth unmatched.
However, if age causes your stains and discoloring, a coffee habit, or tobacco use, Austin Dental Care’s teeth whitening services can get your smile bleached and beautiful.
