A white smile is a healthy smile, but it's not always achievable on your own. Stubborn discolorations develop daily from dark beverages like coffee, wine, and tea. They can also result from specific foods, poor oral hygiene, tobacco use, and prescription medications. To remove these stains, our Mount Airy, NC, dentist may recommend professional teeth whitening to safely and efficiently rejuvenate your smile. At Blue Ridge Dental, Dr. Lynette Smith and Dr. G. Smith encourage patients to consider this method before purchasing over-the-counter strips. Schedule a consultation in our Mount Airy, NC, office today.
Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening
This cosmetic dental service is most beneficial for removing persistent stains and brightening your smile. It's also a popular choice for our Mount Airy, NC, dental patients because it helps:
- Improve oral and immune health
- Causes fewer bouts of embarrassment
- Enhances confidence and self-esteem
- Encourages you to show off your smile
Professional teeth whitening also offers safer and more comfortable treatment, in addition to speed and reliability.
How Does Professional Teeth Whitening Work?
At Blue Ridge Dental, our Mount Airy, NC, dentist offers two different types of professional whitening methods. You can choose to complete the procedure in our office or the comfort of your home. The in-office procedure provides the quickest results and uses a powerful bleaching-agent to enhance the color of the enamel. During a session, you'll sit in a chair while a retractor device holds your mouth open. Hydrogen gel sits on the teeth for one hour as you relax. For at-home whitening, you'll use the same gel and apply it to custom trays created for your mouth only.
If you are frustrated by discolorations that aren't disappearing with rigorous brushing and flossing, consult with our dentist to discover if you are a candidate for professional teeth whitening. Dr. Lynette Smith and Dr. G. Smith stay alongside the latest trends in the industry to deliver thorough treatment to patients.
