Garland Dentist explains the benefits of at home professional teeth whitening services
If you are unhappy with stains or discoloration on your teeth, chances are you’ve looked in the whitening section of the drugstore, and left feeling confused or overwhelmed. There are many options out there and it can be difficult to tell which one will provide the best results. At Kings Dental, we can assist our patients who are interested in whitening their teeth. Our professional take home kits provide all of the same convenience of over-the-counter solutions, at professional-grade strength.
Teeth whitening kits found in the drug store can be helpful in removing some discoloration, but none will whiten the teeth beyond their natural shade. Professional teeth whitening services from a dentist are safe and effective at getting teeth several shades whiter.
At-home teeth whitening is one of the quickest and most affordable ways to dramatically enhance the smile. Before beginning the treatment, all patients will undergo an initial examination and professional cleaning. The cleaning helps remove any plaque and tartar build-up from the teeth that could block the bleaching agent from working properly.
After the cleaning, impressions are taken and used to fabricate custom molds of the teeth. These trays will be unique to your dental arch to ensure that the gel is evenly exposed to all of the teeth while also protecting the gums and tongue.
You will be given your at-home whitening gel and instructions for how to apply it into the trays and how many hours per day to wear them. Results will be gradual and over the course of a couple of weeks, your teeth will emerge whiter and brighter.
Many of our patients love the convenience of wearing the whitening trays in the privacy of their own home. It is ideal for busy people who want to be able to transform their smiles on their own time. Teeth whitening can address stains that are due to food and beverages, smoking, and even some medications. In some situations, the teeth are resistant to the whitening procedure. In those cases, porcelain veneers may be recommended.
