Why Professional Teeth Whitening Is the Way to Go

Why Professional Teeth Whitening Is the Way to Go
Dental bleaching has become increasingly popular recently, but professional teeth whitening is the best way to achieve a brighter smile. It’s no secret that a pearly white smile is a significant confidence booster. Although there are dozens of ways to achieve this from home, a professional is the most effective teeth-whitening solution. Read on to learn more about why professional teeth whitening is the best way to go. Professional Teeth Whitening Provides Long-Lasting Results Nothing is more frustrating than watching your bright white teeth fade back to tints of yellow in only a matter of weeks. When you trust in a professional, you can rest easy knowing that your stunning results will last for at least a year. We understand that whitening your teeth can be an investment, but you’ll quickly realize that it’s worthwhile. It Is Safer Than Store-Bought Solutions Store-bought whiteners might seem like a convenient quick fix, but they’re not the safest way to brighten your smile. Since over-the-counter treatments aren’t custom-made to fit your mouth, they often bleed over into your gums. This can cause gum irritation, and it may even feel like your gums are burning. Tooth sensitivity is another significant side effect of at-home whitening products. You’ll Experience Faster and More Thorough Results It can be tricky to apply a consistent amount of whitening agent across each of your teeth, especially with strips, giving you uneven results. Often, the edges of a tooth respond quicker to bleaching than internal areas. Additionally, store-bought products take a lot of time, but at the office of Neil L. Starr, DDS, PC, we can whiten your teeth faster and better. It Is Convenient and Affordable Some people experience hesitancy about professional teeth whitening because they fear the procedure is too complex and will take a long time. Fortunately, neither of these concerns is true. When you come in for a whitening process at our office, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how easy it is. You can expect your teeth to be polished, isolated with gauze to keep your mouth dry, coated with a whitening solution, and then rinsed. Visit Neil L. Starr, DDS, PC for Professional Teeth Whitening Whitening your teeth is one of the fastest ways to make a significant impact on the look of your teeth. Visit us at Neil L. Starr, DDS, PC, for professional teeth whitening that will deliver stunning results. Working with Dr. Starr, we can personalize your treatment to fit your needs.
