Have you ever wished for a whiter and brighter smile? Teeth whitening may be the solution you have been seeking. Teeth whitening is a straightforward and effective cosmetic dental procedure that can significantly enhance your smile’s appearance in as little as one visit to Avent Ferry Family Dentistry. Our professional teeth whitening treatments utilize a potent, yet safe whitening gel applied to the surface of your teeth. This gel’s primary function is to diminish the appearance of stains, discoloration and yellowing on the enamel, providing you with a notably whiter smile.
Professional teeth whitening can reduce staining and discoloration caused by various factors, including:
- The natural aging process
- Poor dental hygiene habits
- Frequent consumption of foods and drinks that stain
- Smoking or the use of other tobacco products
- Use of certain medications
- Fluorosis (excessive fluoride consumption)
Our practice features the powerful Opalescence® whitening system. Our Opalescence whitening treatments are provided as a take-home treatment, which allows you brighten your teeth in the comfort of your own home and on the convenience of your own schedule. We provide both custom-made whitening trays and disposable trays, and will discuss both options with you so you can decide which type of tray is right for your needs.
Take-home whitening involved placing a powerful, yet safe, whitening gel into the trays and then wearing them as directed by our dentist. You may wear your trays at whatever time best fits your schedule, day or night. Over the course of several weeks you should see a noticeable improvement in the color of your teeth as this whitening gel works to break up stains and discolorations on your tooth enamel.
We do recommend a few things to help you maintain a bright smile, such as practicing good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing daily, making and keeping regular dental appointments, avoiding foods and drinks that stain, and using a whitening toothpaste or mouthwash.
