Just about everyone dreams of having a pearly white smile for many reasons. Whiter teeth can make you look younger and healthier and can certainly boost your confidence. Here at Kirby Smiles, we offer professional teeth whitening services so you can enjoy those benefits. We will even allow you to do it in the comfort of your own home.
Why Our Pearland Dentist Recommends Professional Teeth Whitening
Many affordable over-the-counter products exist, especially now that there are quite a lot of companies on the rise out there that sell at-home whitening products. Part of what makes them so appealing is that they use celebrities and influencers to help sell their product. However, as accessible and user-friendly as these products seem, the opposite is often the case. These kinds of products make it easy for users to accidentally over-bleach their teeth, which causes sensitivity that can grow worse over time.
Additionally, the results for most of these products only last a few weeks, so they will need to be purchased and used very often, costing more in the long run. Excessive use of these teeth whitening products will inevitably cause excessive sensitivity and regular discomfort when eating or drinking anything. For some, this can interfere with their day-to-day life. Unlike those companies, we offer safer and far superior professional whitening trays. Using our whitening trays allows our cosmetic dentists to offer guidance and advice so that you can achieve the results you want without going overboard.
How Our Pearland Dentist Completes Whitening
We customize whitening treatments to each individual patient by creating their custom clear whitening trays in office. Along with the trays, we give each patient a professional-strength whitening gel. We offer this method because it's safe and gradual and allows for the patient to have greater control over how much whiter their teeth become.
Our professional-grade gel is made of specialized hydrogen peroxide and is applied directly to the teeth, releasing oxygen ions upon contact. These ions will go inside the teeth and remove any stains and discoloration, as opposed to simply polishing the surface like most over-the-counter products do. This allows for true treatment of the root cause, which allows the results to last much longer. One use of our customized whitening trays can leave the patient's teeth up to eight shades whiter.
If you would like to have whiter, brighter teeth, please book an appointment today so that we can help you safely achieve the smile of your dreams.
