Why Choose Professional Dental Whitening?
In addition to being safer and gentler than over-the-counter whitening kits, professional dental whitening delivers more predictable results. After Dr. Ly lightens your enamel, he will assess your existing restorations in order to determine their color compatibility. Sometimes fillings, crowns, and veneers also become stained over time. It means that they will need to be replaced in order to match your new, whiter smile—a service only a professional dentist like Dr. Ly can provide. By choosing in-office whitening, you ensure that every part of your smile will be beautifully brightened. What’s more, Dr. Ly can perform touch-up appointments every few years to help you maintain optimal tooth whiteness.
Why Do Teeth Become Stained?
Most people know that smoking stains tooth enamel. But few people are aware of the fact that many non-smokers are also at risk of tooth discoloration. Consuming beverages rich in tannins (such as tea, coffee, and wine), using certain medications, and interact with too much fluoride can also stain the teeth. Likewise, some people experience enamel loss due to acid erosion or tooth grinding, and this leaves teeth more prone to staining.
What to Expect During Treatment
At Davis Dental Care, we can complete teeth whitening procedure in half an hour or less, making it one of the fastest ways to improve the appearance of your smile. Though teeth whitening procedure itself is painless, it sometimes results in temporary sensitivity. Rest assured that this effect will wear off naturally over time; it’s not a sign that your teeth have been damaged by the treatment. Most patients who receive SPADENT whitening do not experience any sensitivity, thanks to the gentle nature of this innovative new treatment.
Once you have received your whitening treatment, Dr. Ly will give you aftercare instructions to help you maximize the results. You will also have the option of coming in for additional follow-up appointments to continue working on improving the aesthetics of your smile.
