Most everyone wants the brightest smile they can have. As it turns out, there are benefits to professional teeth whitening that far outweigh the cosmetic dentistry.
When you’re ready to bypass inferior over-the-counter teeth whitening options, please contact Museum Smiles online or by telephone to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sheri Audu at our Fort Worth office: 817-870-5099.
The Advantages of Whiter Teeth
Some common benefits that people experience after whitening their teeth with take-home kits from the dentist include:
- Improved self-esteem
- Enhanced social life
- Healthier teeth and gums
Your Teeth Whitening Options
At Museum Smiles, the two primary teeth whitening methods employed by our Fort Worth dentist include:
- Professional whitening trays for use at home. For this option, the dentist takes an impression of your teeth and then customizes a tray just for you. Along with the take-home trays, you will receive whitening gel and instructions about how to properly use it with your custom trays. The most common side effect from this cosmetic dentistry treatment is mild to moderate tooth sensitivity, which generally dissipates over time.
- In-office teeth whitening. Also referred to as “bleaching,” this treatment can have immediate results. It can be especially effective for patients whose teeth enamel is discolored after many years of drinking coffee, acidic fruit juices or wine, all of which stain your teeth. This is considered your most efficient means for achieving white teeth. What’s more, your dentist can provide you with a selection of products from which to choose, and talk with you about the variations in results with each bleaching product.
The most important thing to remember is that when you opt for professional teeth whitening over any commercial brand or solution, you gain the benefit of knowing that your dentist is looking out for your smile as well as the long-term health of your teeth and gums throughout the entire process.
