Looking for a new smile with teeth whitening?
Are you looking for a brighter, whiter smile? You’re probably a candidate for teeth whitening! Are your teeth currently yellow, brown, or orange? If you want to enhance your smile in less than an hour, teeth whitening may be the perfect option for you!
However, not all whitening options work for all types of staining. Dr. Jodi Slootsky may recommend alternative teeth whitening methods or other cosmetic dentistry treatments before whitening to see your best results.
You should love your smile! No matter what you have coming up, be it a special event, family photos, or that vacation you’ve been planning all year, teeth whitening can give you the confidence to be your best self!
Your smile is the very first thing people see, and you deserve to make an impression you’re proud of! If you wish you had whiter teeth and a more vibrant smile, then it’s time to make a change. Although there is no shortage of whitening products on the market, speaking with Dr. Slootsky about teeth whitening is the best way to get your most vibrant, healthiest smile. Dr. Jodi, a top cosmetic dentist, will help you get the vibrant smile you need to have the self-confidence you deserve.
What causes tooth discoloration?
Tooth discoloration is a natural part of aging. However, there are some things that can speed up or contribute to tooth discoloration. Some common causes of discoloration are:
- Food and drinks: drinks like coffee and red wine often contribute to the discoloration of teeth because the color pigments attach themselves to the surface of the teeth.
- Tobacco: tobacco users may notice more stains on their teeth because of the tar and nicotine.
- Medication: antihistamines, blood pressure medication, antibiotics, and chemotherapy can all contribute to the discoloration of teeth.
- Age: as the enamel of the tooth wears down, the darker dentin underneath will begin to show.
Not all tooth discoloration can be treated in the same way. Working with Dr. Slootsky at Artistic Dentistry will help ensure that you get the results you desire.
Why should I get my teeth whitening done professionally?
Not all whitening products are created equally, and over-the-counter products don’t always deliver the results they promise. The fact is, depending on the type and depth of staining, you may need a different whitening treatment. Not only do over-the-counter agents not provide the same results as professional whitening, but they can be putting your teeth and your health at risk with the potential of over-exposure to the chemicals.
The best way to ensure you get the results you need without risking your teeth is to talk to your dentist before committing to an over-the-counter whitening product.
Types of teeth whitening available
At Artistic Dentistry, we offer in-office and at-home versions of professional teeth whitening so that you can whiten your teeth safely and on your own time.
In-office bleaching: Your dentist will apply a protective gel and shield to your gums and bleach your teeth in the office. This typically only requires one visit. This option isn’t the most optimal treatment for some patients, especially those with sensitive teeth.
At-home bleaching: We offer take-home kits of our professional whitening product so that you can get the safety and efficacy of professional teeth whitening on your own time.
Some patients may experience tooth sensitivity after a teeth whitening procedure, but this sensitivity is generally temporary. Misuse of whitening agents can cause damage to your teeth and gums also, so it is important to keep your dentist involved throughout the process, even if you bleach your teeth at home. At Artistic Dentistry, your oral health is important to us, and we are dedicated to ensuring that you receive the dental care you deserve.
How much does teeth whitening cost?
Teeth whitening is not usually covered by dental insurance. However, we are proud to offer financing options so that you can still get the smile you need to take on whatever comes your way.
