Professional whitening can brighten your smile in several shades in a short time. Most patients see results immediately and continue to see improvements over time. The primary cause of tooth discoloration is staining from consuming dark foods, beverages, or tobacco products. While brushing after meals may help remove surface stains, professional cleaning is the best way to remove the deep, set-in stains that often cause a dull smile. Many patients choose professional whitening before an important event, such as a wedding or a graduation. At Dr Be Smiles, the treatment process is simple; the dental team will cover your gums and soft tissues to ensure no damage occurs during the procedure. Then they will carefully apply the prescription-strength bleaching agent to your teeth and use a special light to activate the chemical. This process is repeated until the desired level of brightness is achieved. Once complete, your gel will be removed, and the dental team will go over instructions for aftercare.

Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Over-The-Counter Whitening

If you’ve considered professional teeth whitening, you know that these treatments offer the fastest and most dramatic results. In-office and at-home systems are available, although most dentists recommend in-office systems for more immediate, better results. While less expensive, over-the-counter whitening strips and trays can take much longer to show results because they don’t fit as snugly around your teeth. This can create an uneven or blotchy effect.

While over-the-counter treatments are usually less expensive, they are less effective than professional teeth whitening for several reasons. First, they are not customized to fit your mouth. Instead, they use a one-size-fits-all approach that is only comfortable for some. Second, the gels used in these products are less substantial than the ones used by a dentist, so your results will be less dramatic. Finally, many store-bought products don’t contain fluoride or other protective ingredients for the enamel on your teeth.

The Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Aesthetics are one of the main benefits of teeth whitening. Teeth whitening can make stained or discolored teeth whiter and brighter, giving you a more beautiful smile overall. Teeth whitening can restore teeth to their natural color and enhance your smile. When you feel more confident about your smile, you are more likely to smile more often, improving your overall appearance.

Another benefit of teeth whitening is that it can help make your teeth appear healthier than they are. Over time, plaque build-up can build up around the gums and between teeth and cause dental issues like gingivitis and periodontitis. When your tooth enamel is cleaned professionally by a dental hygienist, it can remove some of the stains from your teeth and restore them to their natural healthy look. This improvement in the appearance of your teeth can boost your confidence too!

The safest, most effective way to whiten teeth is through a professional whitening treatment administered by a trained dentist. For the best dental care, visit Dr Be Smiles at 4511 N Midkiff Rd, Suite E-15, Midland, TX 79705, or call (432) 520-4867.
