Regardless of how well you care for your teeth, it’s inevitable that over time, some yellowing or general discoloration will happen. To combat these effects, our practice offers in-office whitening, as well as in-home teeth whitening, both of which can significantly improve the appearance of your teeth. They also provide natural, long-lasting outcomes.
Professional-grade whitening is one of the most effective teeth whitening methods currently available in Petal MS with the ability to tailor treatment to suit your individual requirements and objectives. Visiting a cosmetic dentist in Petal MS can help you get a sparkling, glowing smile that you’re proud to put on display.
Even those who frequently brush frequently, visit regularly the dentist, and take excellent care of their teeth may be able to spot signs of staining or discoloration over time. These perceived tooth blemishes may be caused by the prolonged consumption of food and drinks like berries, coffee, red wine, and other products that contain staining substances, and also smoking tobacco products. In most cases, tooth discoloration is simply caused by the natural aging process.
Professional teeth whitening treatments in Petal MS utilize powerful bleaching agents to give your teeth more white, healthier, and more refreshed appearance. Made up of the finest formulations for whitening, these revolutionary techniques can be tailored to lighten your teeth by several shades, typically more effectively and in less time than alternatives offered over-the-counter. In the end, the most professional teeth whitening treatments can have an impact on your the overall appearance of your smile and provide long-lasting results for many individuals.
While many over-the counter whitening products can provide adequate results for some individuals, professional grade teeth whitening generally creates far superior outcomes for the majority of people. There are several reasons for this, the most important being that Petal MS professional teeth whitening solutions include whitening products that are more powerful than those that can be found in most commercial teeth whitening kits available at the local pharmacy. Professionally produced whitening agents are capable of penetrating more deeply into the tooth enamel to treat discoloration and stains that have been developing for many years.
Another significant distinction between professionals teeth whitening and over-the-counter options is the amount of time required to see visible results. A single treatment in-office usually results in visible results, while over-the-counter solutions often require several weeks of patient and consistent usage before achieving even a mild degree of whitening.
With all of this in mind One of the major difference between these alternatives is the professional teeth whitening treatments are developed and overseen by one among our cosmetic dentists. This provides patients with management of the treatment provided by a skilled professional, which can dramatically increase the likelihood that outcomes will be successful and that the process is done safely.
In addition to the many over-the counter alternatives, we are in a time when claims of so-called “natural” solutions such as charcoal teeth whitening and coconut oil teeth whitening are prevalent–regimens that, according to the American Dental Association, have no proof to show they are efficient or safe. In reality some of these “funny” whitening options are quite damaging to the structure of the teeth. They work by removing a layer of enamel, exposing the whiter layer beneath. Eventually, you are depleted of enamel and this can spell big trouble down the road. Our teeth whitening treatments, supervised by our experienced dental professionals can be the most efficient method of ensuring optimal results and a brighter and whiter smile.
The sensation of tooth sensitivity that occurs during and following the teeth whitening treatment in Petal MS is not unusual. While the effect will fade quite quickly, we wish to ensure that our patients feel as comfortable as they can during the procedure and the following hours. By taking a few simple steps, tooth sensitivity and any discomfort that may be caused by it can be reduced.
In the event that your dental teeth are already sensitive, you should let our dentists know before your treatment starts. In these instances it is possible for us to adjust the strength of the whitening solution to minimize any discomfort. In addition, it is suggested that you utilize a soft-bristled tooth brush and a toothpaste like Sensodyne(r) or a similar product designed for individuals with sensitive teeth. Regularly washing your mouth with a fluoride mouthwash can also be beneficial, as well as the temporary avoidance of consuming items that are excessively hot or cold or high in acidity is also a good idea.
It is also important to note that the teeth may become more sensitive when they are whitened too frequently, whether that is achieved by in-office or at-home treatments. Keep this in mind, some individuals who regularly undergo whitening procedures and have extreme amounts of pain in the teeth might be advised to cut back on the frequency of whitening treatments.
The longevity of teeth whitening Petal MS results is dependent on many variables, such as lifestyle, genetics, diet, and the use of certain drugs. For many individuals, the effects last very long periods of time. If you find that your whitening results are starting to fade then it is possible to perform a “touch-up” treatment can be applied to extend the results. We recommend the use of straws with certain beverages to prevent staining, as well as regular visits to your hygienist to minimize the development of plaque buildup, which can contribute to staining.
