Professional Teeth Whitening
A smile is one of the things about a person that makes an impression during a first meeting. The question, therefore, is does your smile leave a positive impression?
Yellowed or stained teeth can send the wrong message to others. Some people will think poorly of your oral hygiene practices; others might make hasty generalizations about your personality.
Your smile shouldn’t be a source of embarrassment or shame, however. Turn to First Dental. We can brighten them with our professional teeth whitening in Medford, MA.
Teeth Whitening Matters
The types of foods you consume are mostly responsible for the stained and worn-down appearance of your teeth. Sweets, sodas, coffee, and alcohol are common causes of discoloration. In the meantime, tartar-riddled enamel develops due to smoking, compromising the healthy appearance of your teeth.
The mentioned cases can be addressed with some lifestyle changes. Severe cases require more than just a simple brush and floss, though. Professional teeth whitening restores the white to your pearly whites with just one dental visit.
Medford teeth whitening is also useful for improving self-esteem. Flashing a stained smile doesn’t have to be your reality when interacting with people, after all. Teeth whitening helps you regain your self-confidence by restoring the natural shade of your teeth.
Go for Professional Whitening
Over the counter teeth whitening systems may seem like convenient options, especially for individuals with busy lifestyles. Bleaching trays, whitening strips, and whitening pens claim immediate results. But are these enough?
DIY whitening products work to some extent, but they do not guarantee the same results as professional teeth whitening treatments. Some of these methods could even result in harmful side effects (e.g., teeth sensitivity and damaged gums).
Stay on the safe side and opt for professional whitening services, instead.
First Dental’s professionally supervised whitening lightens teeth three to eight shades in an hour. Unlike over the counter whitening products, our procedures work faster and are safer for your teeth and gums.
Our Whitening Methods
Patients can choose from two whitening methods:
- In-Office Whitening — this technique guarantees faster results. Dentists will apply hydrogen peroxide gel to the teeth. Results will be obvious after an hour.
- Take-Home Whitening — this method will require discipline on your part to achieve the best possible results. You will receive custom-made mouth trays and a whitening gel, which you should use for an hour at a time.
The first impression you leave should be positive. Achieve it with a whiter smile. Schedule an appointment and speak with our teeth whitening dentist in Avon, Medford and Somerville, Massachusetts.
Caring for Your Whitened Smile
Proper maintenance requires daily brushing and flossing to keep your mouth healthy. Clean your teeth any time to prevent discoloration. Practice brushing after a meal to keep food and drinks from staining your whitened teeth.
Heavy smoking and frequent alcohol consumption can reverse the effects of teeth whitening. If you cannot quit entirely, you should at least do all of these in moderation.
Stains will still return over time, even if you do not smoke or drink coffee. Your teeth’s color may darken a few shades in a year or two.
If you are unhappy with the color of your teeth, talk to us. We offer simple touch-ups or another round of in-office procedures to restore the bright shade of your teeth. Our dentists will also discuss long-term whitening options. In some cases, we recommend using custom trays so you can bleach at home. Always talk with your dentist first before you use whitening products.
