In our current world of instantly shared photos and constant social media updates, having a beautiful smile seems to be the standard. Even the most rigorous brushers and flossers can still find themselves with stained or discolored teeth. As we age, the foods and drinks we enjoy can catch up to us. Other factors like trauma, illness, smoking, and more can dull our shine.
At our Medina, OH dental clinic, we understand the importance of having a beautiful, healthy-looking smile. Our patients can determine the amount of brightness they want to achieve—anything from a subtle change to Hollywood white; you can choose your smile!
Reasons to Consider Professional Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is big business. There are entire aisles dedicated to brightening your teeth at every supermarket and drug store. It’s important to understand that not all products work—or are even good for you! Investing time and money into a low-strength whitening gel will leave you frustrated—and with a lighter wallet.
At Frontier Dental, we recommend choosing professional teeth whitening for the best results. Our dental office uses a prescription-strength whitening gel with a higher percentage of peroxide, the ingredient that gets rid of stubborn stains.
Dr. Karunagaran can customize a professional whitening tray that tightly fits the shape of your mouth. Store-bought whitening trays are one-size-fits-all, meaning the gel could potentially leak onto your gums and damage them or cause sensitivity.
How Teeth Whitening Works
We always begin every cosmetic procedure by ensuring your teeth and gums are healthy. The best time to whiten your teeth is immediately following a professional teeth cleaning, where our hygienist removes plaque and tartar that can hinder whitening.
- We will take impressions of your teeth
- Then create custom whitening trays
- Provide instructions on how to use your teeth bleaching kit
- Take a before and after shade to show your results
You can choose to touch up your smile whenever it starts to look dull or stained again. Maintaining regular dental appointments will also help keep surface stains to a minimum.
