What does it take to really change the way you look? Long hours at the gym? Expensive trips to the most cutting-edge salon in the Decatur AL area? What about a trip to Decatur Smiles for teeth whitening?
You may not love going to the dentist, but you will love the results when we help you find the best way to whiten your teeth. Teeth whitening is a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure, but the results never cease to impress.
We can work with you to develop a teeth whitening regimen that will be most effective. This may include any of the following three methods:
1. Bleaching in-office. Sometimes called chairside bleaching, a special light is used while a bleaching agent is applied to the teeth. A rubber shield or protective gel is used to keep your tender gums safe from the whitening agent.
2. Bleaching at home. Even though this is done at home, the peroxide-containing whiteners used do have potential side effects, so it’s a good idea to discuss this with your dentist. Also, there are many at-home whiteners available, and your dentist can direct you to the best ones.
3. Toothpaste with whitening properties. When a toothpaste carries the ADA Seal of Acceptance, it means that it contains special chemical or polishing agents. These will provide additional stain removal which complements the surface stain removal offered by all toothpastes.
