If you’re looking for the quickest way to get a whiter, brighter, more beautiful smile, professional teeth whitening could be your solution. An in-office teeth whitening treatment from your San Jose dentist Dr. Lakshmy Sudeep at Santa Teresa Dental Center in our San Jose, CA dental office will transform your appearance, even if your teeth aren’t perfect.
Professional Teeth Whitening vs. DIY Teeth Whitening
There is no shortage of teeth whitening products on the market. Visit your pharmacy and you can find an area dedicated to whitening products, from strips to toothpastes, mouthwash to gels, and so much more. The variations on this theme seem infinite. Deciding which product is right for you can be a costly endeavor.
Avoid any user error from over-the-counter products. Put your energy and investment in a sure thing. At your San Jose dentist, your teeth can be whitened with professional-grade bleaching products while you avoid any drawbacks of DIY whitening.
Things to consider:
- Power: There are no over-the-counter whitening products that can compare with the strength of your dentist’s whitening products made with carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide. This combo truly blasts through stains and refreshes your smile. Plus, most drugstore whitening products only touch the surface of your teeth, eliminating light but pesky stains, which means the whitening will be brief and temporary.
- Repetition: Sometimes, a DIY whitening product makes a little dent in the color of your teeth. This result can be enough to prompt you to do more and more to get the ultimate good results. Unfortunately, an addiction to whitening products can be disastrous, damaging your tooth enamel and gums and rendering your teeth an unnatural-looking hue.
- Results: You can be incredibly careful and diligent about your person whitening efforts, but even the biggest rule-follower can find themselves faced with an unsurmountable challenge in DIY whitening. The results you achieve can, at best, be varied and uneven with a one-size-fits-all method. Get your teeth whitened in your San Jose dentist’s office, however, and you will receive a customized whitening that considers the color, composition, and nature of each individual tooth. With pro whitening, you get an even, beautiful smile.
ZOOM! Whitening and Take-Home Whitening Kits
ZOOM! whitening is a popular, proven method of whitening teeth. In just about an hour at your San Jose cosmetic dentist’s office, your smile can be shades whiter thanks to a carefully calibrated laser whitening system. All precautions are taken to ensure that your teeth are whitened without discomfort. Lips and gums are carefully covered, eliminating chances of sensitivity to the bleaching agents.
After the whitening agent is applied to the front of your teeth and the laser is programmed to do its work, you will undergo whitening in four 15-minute sessions. For one hour of your time you walk away with several years’ worth of gorgeous white teeth.
If you prefer to do the whitening on your own time in your own home, your dentist can send you home with a whitening kit and custom trays that are designed to whiten your teeth and your teeth alone. You get professional results without having to spend time in the dentist’s chair.
Getting a White Smile Is Easy with Professional Teeth Whitening
It’s not just actors, politicians, and TV personalities who get to have white teeth. If you’ve ever envied someone’s bright white teeth, there is a way to get what they have – professional teeth whitening.
There are a few boxes that must be checked before you can qualify for teeth whitening from your dentist. Most importantly, it needs to be determined whether your teeth can be whitened with bleaching agents. Some people have stains that are buried deep within the tooth, or they have tooth enamel that is simply more yellow than white. In cases like these, teeth whitening simply will not work, but other cosmetic dentistry treatments will – namely, porcelain veneers.
Even if you don’t have flawless teeth, even if you have gaps or misalignment or crooked teeth, a whitening treatment gives you an air of health, wellness, and youth. White teeth are cared-for teeth. Contact Santa Teresa Dental Center in San Jose to schedule your whitening consultation today.
Porcelain veneers are the most transformative cosmetic dentistry procedure available, and it may just be the right smile makeover for you at Santa Teresa Dental Center.
