There are many over-the-counter products available that promise to brighten your teeth. Using these items incorrectly can cause your teeth to become overly sensitive, and it could take you weeks to see any results. Instead, you should consider having teeth whitening in Alpharetta, GA and Sandy Springs, GA professionally done by Dr. Dan Myers of The Dentist Centers.
In-office treatments utilize higher concentrations of peroxide. After a one-hour appointment, you can walk out of the office with a substantially brighter smile. This is why it is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments. That way if you have a big event, such as a wedding, coming up in a few days, you can get your teeth efficiently whitened.
Many at-home whitening kits will only brighten a smile for a week or so. In-office treatments will not last forever, but you can expect a whiter smile for at least a few months. You can make your smile whiter longer if you take care of your smile. You can do this by avoiding certain substances, such as coffee and wine, that stain the surfaces of teeth.
When you get this treatment at the dentist’s office, you will get a thorough check-up first. This is to make sure you do not have any instances of tooth decay or gum disease in your mouth. In this case, a teeth whitening treatment will not be right at the time. When you pursue at-home treatments, you have no idea if it is safe and if the treatment will create additional sensitivity.
