Professional teeth whitening is a convenient, cost-effective way to really give your smile a lift. With all the responsibilities you have, it’s good to know that you can control the time you spend whitening your teeth. That’s why we offer convenient take-home whitening kits.
Unlike kits you purchase in your drug store, our take-home kits are made just for you. By taking impressions of your teeth, we can create completely customized whitening trays.
This is far more effective than over-the-counter kits that include a generic whitening tray. You usually have to boil the tray provided and bite into it so that it fits your mouth.
How Do Take-Home Kits Work?
Our custom-made trays are created using our highly accurate impressions, and the result is a tray that perfectly fits the contour of your teeth. Fit is very important because we want the whitening gel to completely cover every surface of your dental enamel for even, consistent results.
With a professional whitening kit, you will receive a whitening gel that has a higher concentration of peroxide than store-bought kits. Using our professional take-home whitening kit, you can achieve desired results in about seven to ten days.
Please contact our High Point dental office if you would like to learn more about our customized take-home teeth whitening kits.
There may be any one of a number of reasons why your teeth have lost their bright, white appearance. These include age, lifestyle habits, and even the type of medication you take.
As we age, it’s natural for our bright smiles to dim somewhat. Day after day, our teeth take abuse whether we care for them properly or not. The result is that the surface enamel develops tiny holes that catch food debris, darkening your smile. At the same time, this allows the underlying yellowish dentin to show through.
The Decisions You Make Matter
You may not be aware of it, but there are a number of choices you make that impact the whiteness of your teeth. Smoking or using nicotine products can quickly cause your teeth to become severely stained and discolored. Consuming stain-producing food and drinks like coffee, dark tea, cola, raspberries and blueberries can also darken tooth enamel.
Fortunately, professional teeth whitening treatments at our High Point dental office are very effective for reducing or eliminating a lot of these types of stains. We can prepare a take-home whitening kit that you can use at your convenience. In about a week to ten days, you’ll see the beautiful results.
Please contact our office to arrange a professional dental cleaning. At that time we can talk to you about our convenient, effective, teeth whitening treatment.
