Your smile is one of the first things people see when they look at you, which is why it is so important to have healthy-looking teeth. Even with a proper oral hygiene routine, you may not be achieving the dazzling smile you are looking for. At Riverside Dental Group in California, we offer several forms of cosmetic treatment options that can enhance your smile. If you are looking for a long-lasting solution for stained teeth, our professional whitening service is a great option for you.
The Downside Of Store-Bought Whitening Tools
You may be wondering why professional whitening services are offered when you can buy strips or whitening paste at the grocery store. While these may be okay to use in a pinch, the effect of generic brightening kits is not as long-lasting and can even damage your teeth. The bleaching agent in these is often too strong, which is why you may have previously experienced sensitivity when using them. Additionally, whitening toothpaste will not help you achieve the bright smile that a professional cosmetic treatment will. Professional services are custom-tailored to your needs and can remove stains deeper than a toothpaste can.
In-Office or At-Home Kits Help You Get Your Desired Color
Depending on your personal needs, you can receive this service either in our office or with a personalized at-home kit. In the office, we will apply bleaching gel to your teeth. This helps remove stains from your enamel and from the deeper levels of your teeth as well. After two hours, you will leave your appointment with a brand-new smile.
If you choose to do this at home, the process will take around two weeks. With your personal bleaching kit, you will apply your trays daily for the time told by your dentist. Once the treatment is over, you can enjoy your brighter smile for months to come.
Taking Care Of Your Smile
You may experience mild sensitivity after the initial whitening process. This is normal and should go away within a day. However, if it persists, call your dentist. To keep your smile as vibrant as possible, make sure that you are brushing and flossing regularly and visiting the dentist every six months. You may also want to limit the number of foods and drinks you consume that are high in tannins – the element that causes these to stain your teeth. Drinking beverages such as coffee or tea with a straw can be helpful in reducing the amount of staining on your teeth.
