Whiter teeth can make your smile look more attractive, which is why people undergo the procedure. However, there are other reasons as well. For example, whiter teeth can help boost your confidence and self-esteem. It can also help your personal and professional life. Professional teeth whitening removes deep stains caused by smoking, eating foods and drinks that stain over time, and aging. At Monterey Peninsula Smiles, our dentist will use a hydrogen peroxide-based whitening product to whiten your teeth up to eight shades whiter in about an hour. Your teeth will feel healthy and look great!
Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Home Whitening
If you’re hoping to brighten your smile, you’ve probably seen plenty of advertisements for at-home teeth whitening. These treatments offer immediate results and are relatively inexpensive compared to professional teeth whitening services. However, there are some drawbacks to at-home treatment. Home kits can provide quick and convenient results, but they’re not for everyone.
When you receive a teeth whitening in your dentist’s office, you’ll receive a custom tray to fit your mouth. This custom tray ensures that every tooth is covered with the gel and that no gum line is exposed to the bleaching agent. Only the teeth are treated; your gums remain healthy throughout the procedure and are less likely to become irritated from contact with the gel.
Your dentist can also provide customized advice based on the condition of your teeth. For example, if you have sensitive gums, the dentist can give you an alternative solution that won’t cause discomfort. Additionally, the dentist can evaluate your dental health to determine the best course of action so that you don’t damage your enamel or irritate your gums with the wrong product.
The Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening
Over-the-counter whitening solutions may not contain the necessary ingredients to prevent sensitivity or protect your gums. A professional treatment is customized for your unique mouth and dental health needs.
Over-the-counter whitening products can take weeks or even months to improve your smile color. Our in-office treatments are designed to brighten your smile dramatically in just one visit!
Professional whitening treatments are much stronger than any at-home product you can purchase at the store. This means you can enjoy a safe, effective treatment without worrying about gum irritation or other issues.
You don’t have to bother with messy trays or time-consuming treatments with professional teeth whitening. You can get a brighter, more beautiful smile during one short visit to our office!
A smile that looks bright and white can positively impact your first impression of a potential employer or client and may give you an edge over other candidates. To learn more about professional teeth whitening, contact Monterey Peninsula Smiles at 3154 De Forest Rd Suite A, Marina 93933.
