Is Professional Teeth Whitening For You? [BLOG]
Professional teeth whitening is most likely for you if you consume coffee, sodas, red wine, tea, or richly colored foods. That’s because it is hard to ward off all the stains and discolorations that go along with life’s simple pleasures. Plus, just getting older will darken your smile.
But don’t worry, at our Warrenton, VA dentist office, we’ve got you covered with our cosmetic dentistry solutions. Keep reading to hear more about what Drs. Yung & Jelinek can do to restore your formerly pearly whites, and then pick up the phone to call us at 540-253-1377 to request your next dental appointment.
You Aren’t The Only One With Yellow Teeth
Now more than ever, there is strong demand among the masses for brighter, whiter smiles. But most folks won’t find what they are looking for in the toothpaste aisle of the grocery store. Unfortunately, most store-bought whitening products that you’ll encounter there can never fulfill the promise of their always-enticing packaging.
Some of them do work to a minimal extent because they do contain small levels of hydrogen peroxide and so forth. But many of these so-called solutions are actually as dangerous as they are disappointing in that they contain materials that won’t be custom-fitted to your mouth. This means that the bleaching agents end up in places other than on your teeth, which can be really bad for your gums and soft tissue.
Professional Guidance Is Key
As with most things, the professionals can get you the safest, most effective results when it comes to brightening up your smile. Even when your teeth are badly stained, we have the sort of professional-grade whitening products at our practice that will do far more for your smile than those OTC brands.
It makes sense. After all, professional whitening products can have more than 10 times the bleaching agent as commercial products, which is why you can only get them from a vetted oral health professional.
Beyond that, having a dentist you trust involved in the process, will guarantee that the whitening treatment will be handled correctly. And you won’t be left to figure things out on your own. Your options include in-office whitening, whereby we’ll apply a strong solution and let it get to work while you wait. We also have an at-home whitening program. With that, you’ll still use custom-fitted trays and a professional solution but you’ll get to do it gradually around your own schedule, with careful direction from Drs. Yung & Jelinek.
