Many people love to drink a cup of coffee first thing in the morning and maybe a glass or two of wine in the evening. There is nothing wrong in doing so; however, there are people who are unaware of the possible consequences in the long run. The teeth may gradually become dull-looking since they are like the skin or sponge – they have pores that can absorb the colors of the substances consumed.
Fortunately, there are now means to improve the color of the teeth – from dental products like toothpaste and rinses to store-bought kits that use whitening strips, creams, and gel. Aside from all these, we at Flex Dental have an even better alternative – professional teeth whitening.
Compared to all the other whitening options available, only professional systems performed under the expertise of the dentist offers the most comfortable, safe, and effective method. With it, patients are sure to regain the bright, white smile they once had and even achieve several shades whiter teeth.
Over the counter products follow the “one size fits all” concept when it comes to the devices used such as strips and trays. The problem with it is, they could be too big or small for a person to offer good coverage and even whitening for the teeth. With the professional approach, dentists can create custom-made trays to guarantee the perfect fit and favorable results for each patient.
Less Likely to be Exposed to Chemicals
Teeth whitening kits that are store-bought contain the same whitening agents like the ones used professionally although at lower concentrations. However, it is still possible for irritations and burning sensations to be present if the whitening solution becomes in contact with the patient’s soft tissues. Dentists can prevent this from happening by isolating the gums and cheek linings prior to the application.
Although most store-bought products are ineffective, there are those which lightens the teeth gradually after repeated use. Professional whitening, on the other hand, can provide lighter shades in a single session and under an hour or so.
Less Teeth Sensitivity
It is common for patients who undergo any kind of teeth whitening treatments to experience sensitivity afterward, but it can be more bearable with the help of a dental professional. Dentists will take measures to eliminate sensitivity by using desensitizing agents.
Our practice offers professional teeth whitening using Opalescence to whiten the teeth up to eight shades brighter. We always aim to give patients the bright, white smile they want and deserve.
