Certain foods and beverages are notorious for staining teeth, such as red wine, coffee, tea, and certain berries. Poor oral hygiene, a buildup of plaque and tartar, and other issues might also leave you with yellow or discolored teeth. This discoloration can have a negative impact on many aspects of your life. That is why Dr. Hossein Javid at Dr. Smile offers teeth whitening to patients. There are many reasons why you might decide to visit a cosmetic dentist for this procedure rather than simply using bleaching kits at home.
Faster and Better Results
The procedures used by a cosmetic dentist to whiten teeth are better than those you can buy over the counter. For one, they provide a more uniform and natural looking result. A professional kit also has the capacity to get to the shade you want much faster, typically in one visit. This is because dentists have access to the top-of-the-line equipment and latest advances that you are unable to buy.
In addition to brighter smiles, you also will have your teeth whitening treatment last longer when you visit a dentist rather than try to do it at home. This is because the professional tools have the capacity to reach deep down to remove stains from multiple layers. At home kits only have the power to whiten a few layers, so the discoloration returns faster.
Increased Quality and Safety
Although at-home kits do have to pass rigorous safety tests, it is always safer to undergo treatment from a dentist. This is because the bleaching process always has some inherent risk, mainly increasing the sensitivity of your gums. Any incorrect use of the bleaching trays can lead to damage to your gums and teeth. A dentist will know exactly what to do to mitigate the risk and make it as safe as possible.
