Regardless of how well you take care of your teeth, it’s inevitable that over time, some yellowing or general discoloration may occur. To combat these effects we offer in-office whitening and in-home teeth whitening, both of which can dramatically reduce the color of your teeth, with natural-looking lasting results.
Professional-grade whitening is one of the most efficient teeth whitening methods currently available in Ridgeland MS with the ability to tailor treatment to fit your unique needs and goals. Visiting a cosmetic dentist in Ridgeland MS can help you to achieve a radiant, bright smile that you’re happy to display.
Even those who frequently brush frequently, visit regularly the dentist and take great treatment of their teeth could be able to spot signs of staining or discoloration as time passes. The visible tooth discoloration could be the result of long-term consumption of foods and beverages such as berries, coffee, red wine, and other items that contain staining agents, in addition to the use of tobacco products. In most cases the tooth discoloration is caused by the natural process of aging.
Professional teeth whitening treatments in Ridgeland MS utilize powerful whiteners to create a whiter, healthier, and more refreshed appearance. With the highest-quality whiteners, these advanced techniques can be custom-tailored to make your teeth whiter by a variety of shades, usually faster and with less time than the alternatives that are available over-the-counter. In the end, professional teeth whitening treatment options can have a positive effect on the overall appearance of your smile and provide long-lasting results for a lot of people.
Although some over-the-counter whitening products may provide satisfactory results for some people, professional-grade teeth whitening generally creates far superior results for the vast majority of people. There are many reasons behind this, with the primary reason is that Ridgeland MS professional teeth whitening solutions include whitening agents that are far more powerful than those that is found in the majority of commercial teeth whitening kits available at the local drugstore. Professional-grade whitening ingredients are capable of penetrating deeper into the tooth enamel to address discoloration and stains that have been developing for years.
Another major difference between one of the main differences between professional teeth whitening and over-the-counter options is the amount of time required to show visible effects. Just one in-office whitening treatment generally results in immediate visible effects while over-the counter solutions typically require many weeks of patient, consistent use before producing even a mild degree of whitening.
In mind One of the main difference between these alternatives is the fact the professional teeth whitening treatments are developed and monitored by one or our cosmetic dentists. This provides patients with management of the treatment provided by an experienced professional, which can dramatically increase the likelihood that outcomes are successful and the procedure is carried out safely.
In addition to over-the-counter alternatives, we are in an age where the claims of “natural” solutions such as charcoal teeth whitening and coconut oil teeth whitening are prevalent–regimens that, according to the American Dental Association, have no evidence to suggest they are safe or effective. In reality, many of these gimmicky solutions for whitening are very damaging to the structure of the teeth. They function more so by removing a layer of enamel and exposing the white layer underneath. Eventually, you run out of enamel, and this could cause a lot of troubles later. The teeth whitening treatments, supervised by our highly skilled dentists can be the most efficient way to safely ensure optimal results and a brighter whiter smile.
Sensitivity to teeth during and after the teeth whitening treatment in Ridgeland MS is not common. While the effect will fade relatively quickly, we want to make sure that our patients are at their most comfortable during the procedure and the days following. By taking a few simple steps, tooth sensitivity and any discomfort that may be caused by it can be minimized.
If you have teeth that are already sensitive, you should let our dentists know before your treatment begins. In these cases it is possible for us to alter the dosage of whitening solutions to minimize any discomfort. Additionally, it is recommended that you utilize a soft-bristled tooth brush and a toothpaste like Sensodyne(r) or other products specifically designed for people who suffer from sensitive teeth. Regular rinses using fluoride mouthwashes can be beneficial, as well as the temporary avoiding of items that are excessively hot or cold or high in acidity is also recommended.
It is also important to remember that teeth may be more sensitive if they are exposed to too much whitening and whether this is accomplished by in-office or at-home treatments. With that in mind, some individuals who regularly undergo whitening procedures and experience significant levels of tooth sensitivity could be advised to limit the frequency of whitening treatments.
The longevity of teeth whitening Ridgeland MS results is dependent on a myriad of factors, including lifestyle habits such as genetics, diet and the use of specific drugs. For many people these effects can last for long time. If you find that your results of the whitening process are beginning to diminish, a “touch-up” treatment can be performed to prolong the outcome. We suggest using straws with certain drinks to minimize staining, and regular visits to the hygiene professional to prevent the formation of plaque buildup, which can cause staining.
