Get a Brighter Smile With Teeth Whitening
At Bob Dalsania Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, you'll find various teeth whitening treatments to help you get the smile of your dreams. Let's explore what teeth whitening is, how it works, and the different options available to you.
Show Off Your Smile
Do you look in the mirror and wish for a brighter, more confident smile? Teeth whitening at our Covington office can give you the results you want with the guidance of our expert team.
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that lightens the color of your teeth and removes stains and discoloration. It is a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of your teeth and boost your confidence.
How Teeth Whitening Works
Teeth whitening works by using various techniques to remove stains and discoloration from the surface of your teeth to give you a brighter smile. The process typically involves using bleaching agents that break down and remove the molecules that cause tooth staining.
Here's how it works:
Once applied to your teeth, the bleaching agent oxidizes and releases oxygen molecules that penetrate the tooth structure and react with the stain molecules. The oxygen breaks down the stains into smaller, less visible particles, making your teeth appear whiter.
Most tooth discoloration is caused by external factors such as consuming certain foods and beverages (like coffee, tea, or red wine), using tobacco products, or poor oral hygiene. Teeth whitening treatments primarily target these extrinsic stains.
Dr. Bob may provide guidelines on post-treatment care, which may include avoiding certain food and drinks that can stain your teeth, practicing good oral hygiene, and scheduling regular dental check-ups to maintain your newly whitened smile.
Your Teeth Whitening Treatment Options
There are several teeth whitening treatment options available to you, including:
In-Office Teeth Whitening
This is a professional treatment Dr. Bob performs in our Covington dental office. He uses a high concentration of bleaching agent and a special light to activate the gel, which can whiten your teeth by several shades in just one appointment.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
This treatment involves using custom-made trays that you fill with a lower concentration of bleaching agent and wear at home for a certain amount of time each day. This treatment typically takes several weeks to get the results you want.
Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening
This is a less expensive option that involves using whitening strips or gels that you can buy at a drugstore. However, the results may not be as dramatic as professional treatments, and they pose the risk of tooth sensitivity and gum irritation more than professional treatment.
Teeth whitening with Dr. Bob is as easy as one, two, three:
Before starting teeth whitening treatment, you'll schedule a consultation at our Covington office. During this initial appointment, your dentist will evaluate your oral health, discuss your desired outcome, and determine if professional teeth whitening is right for you.
Dr. Bob will explain your treatment options and help you choose the most appropriate one for your needs.
Once you decide to proceed with professional teeth whitening, Dr. Bob will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums.
This examination helps identify any underlying dental issues before the whitening treatment, such as cavities or gum disease. Ensuring your mouth is healthy before whitening is crucial for giving you fantastic, bright results.
Customized Treatment Plan
Based on your consultation and examination results, Dr. Bob will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. This plan may involve in-office teeth whitening procedures, take-home whitening kits, or a combination.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
You can enjoy several benefits when getting your teeth whitened, including:
- Improved confidence: A brighter, whiter smile can boost your self-esteem and make you feel more confident in social situations.
- Enhanced appearance: Whiter teeth can make you look younger and more attractive.
- Healthier teeth: Teeth whitening can remove stains and discoloration caused by certain foods and beverages, leading to a healthier-looking smile.
Is Teeth Whitening Treatment Worth It?
Teeth whitening treatment is definitely worth it if you want to improve the appearance of your teeth and boost your confidence.
However, it's important to remember that the results are not permanent, and you must maintain good oral hygiene habits and avoid certain foods and drinks that can stain your teeth to keep your smile looking its best.
How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?
As with any procedure, the cost of teeth whitening will vary. It depends on which treatment option you choose for whitening, how much treatment you need, and how many appointments are necessary to see the results you want.
Dr. Bob offers a variety of payment plans to ensure treatment is always affordable and fits your lifestyle.
