In-Office Teeth Whitening Enjoy a Brighter Smile Immediately
Yellow-tinted teeth and noticeable staining may make you embarrassed of your smile, hiding tooth discoloration behind tight-lipped grins instead of flashing your teeth with joy. Pearce Dental Group in Cincinnati offers in-office teeth whitening treatments that can give you a brighter smile in less than an hour. You don’t have to shy away from showing your teeth any longer.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
A whiter smile starts with a customized tray molded to fit your teeth and bite. Our dentists fill the tray with a professional-grade whitening agent with high concentrations of carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. These powerful ingredients can brighten teeth by several shades during a single in-office session. Our dental team also offers home kits with pre-filled mouth trays that use a weaker gel to whiten teeth gradually over weeks. Take-home trays are a great way to touch up in-office whitening results.
Teeth whitening with customized trays protects your gums and ensures even results as the gel is flush against all surfaces of your teeth during treatment.
Why Should I Choose Professional Teeth Whitening?
Many people try over-the-counter (OTC) products that promise to improve tooth discoloration before turning to a dentist. Some kinds of toothpaste advertise whitening benefits, but they are ineffective because the paste isn’t in contact with the teeth long enough to make a difference in tooth appearance.
Whitening agents used in OTC whitening gels and strips may be too diluted to provide visible results or too strong, leading to tooth and gum sensitivity. Whitening strips are designed to fold over your teeth but tend to slip and may not stick to all your teeth. When these products do lead to noticeable results, they may not be as flattering as you’d hoped due to uneven or splotchy results.
Professional teeth whitening offers immediate, predictable results, so you know you’re not wasting time and money on a product that may or may not give you your desired brightness. Professional-grade whitening agents are safe and effective, and the custom-molded trays fit your unique bite for uniform teeth-whitening results.
Who Should Have Teeth Whitening Treatments?
People with extrinsic tooth discoloration, meaning the stain or yellow tint is on the outer layer of the tooth (enamel), may achieve excellent results with professional teeth whitening. However, intrinsic stains on the inner tooth layer (dentin) are more permanent and won’t respond to whitening treatments. People with intrinsic stains may be a better fit for porcelain veneers
