You might think that over-the-counter whitening products are a simple shortcut to whiter teeth. It’s true there are lots of whitening gels, strips, and toothpastes at any grocery store. But they won’t deliver the results you’ll see from professional whitening.
Effectiveness is one of the biggest advantages to professional whitening. Another is speed. Imagine walking into our office with dull or yellowed teeth and leaving with a brilliant smile! In most cases teeth whitening can be finished in a single office visit.
When it comes to hard-to-remove stains, like those from tetracycline, the ballgame changes a little. Tetracycline is an antibiotic, and in high doses can permanently stain teeth. Lighter stains can usually be removed with teeth whitening. For more serious discoloration, veneers may be in order. These are thin porcelain shells that are custom-fitted to cover the surfaces of teeth.
Porcelain veneers from Flax Dental in Atlanta can give you a stunning new smile. People from Sandy Springs, Brookhaven, and Dunwoody also come to our office for health and wellness dentistry, and much more. Call to schedule an appointment today!
