Sometimes, when you want to upgrade your look, all it takes is some smile enhancement. Professional teeth whitening is an excellent and easy way to acquire the shade that you always strive to attain, but can't on your own. At All West Dental, our dentist can determine if you are a candidate for this cosmetic dental procedure during your initial visit to our Lethbridge, AB, office. Dr. David Gunderson is more than happy to explain how professional teeth whitening can improve your appearance and confidence.
Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening
Unlike over-the-counter bleaching agents that use a low-dose formula, this personalized procedure uses the help of your dentist to achieve the perfect shade of white. To minimize risks and intensify results, Dr. Gunderson recommends performing this technique in our Lethbridge, AB dental office to safely and effectively achieve the smile you've always wanted. Other advantages of having this service performed by a dentist include:
- Easy maintenance
- Immediate results
- Improved appearance
- Increased self-confidence
How Professional Teeth Whitening Works
When you opt for a professional teeth whitening session, you're able to sit back and relax while your dentist applies an efficient peroxide-based bleaching agent. The solution sits on enamel for an hour. Depending on the patient's preference, as an alternative, we can also create custom trays and give them the bleaching gel to take home.
Keeping Your Teeth White After Treatment
To protect your investment, gently brush the teeth at least twice a day, or between meals. You'll also need to floss at least once daily, and rinse with an American Dental Association (ADA) approved mouthwash for additional defense against stains. You should also refrain from drinking acidic and sugary beverages to maintain the health of teeth and gums. The most reliable way to keep teeth white after treatment is by visiting our All West Dental office for routine cleanings and oral examinations to ensure that everything is in good standing.
If stubborn stains won't vanish and you're exhausted from enamel looking lackluster, consult with our dentist to discuss ways to reinvigorate your smile. Professional teeth whitening is only one of the many procedures Dr. David Gunderson can recommend to reduce or eliminate yellow, brown, or grayish discolorations.
