Teeth Whitening: Do It Right
- Posted on: May 25 2018
As the years go by, our teeth naturally lose their luster. Dark colored foods and drinks speed up the process, but even people who avoid coffee, wine and cola are not immune to yellow or gray teeth. Want to brighten up your smile? Have you considered tooth whitening? Teeth whitening at Flax Dental in Atlanta is one of the quickest and most affordable ways to look younger and more attractive.
Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?
Though some teeth whitening patients experience a little short-term sensitivity, most experience no pain at all.
There are several different methods for whitening teeth, but each uses a solution containing peroxide to remove the stains that have accumulated in the microscopic cracks in your tooth enamel.
DIY Whitening Products
The oral care aisle at the grocery store is filled with whitening products. The strips, toothpastes, and paint-on whiteners use a lower concentration of whitening agent than in-office methods. They are somewhat effective, but rarely remove all of the stains on your enamel.
Don’t assume that teeth whitening offered at mall kiosks is risk-free. The industry is largely unregulated and the staff often have little training. Do you really want to take chances with your smile?
Whitening at Flax Dental
We offer patients two professional-grade teeth whitening options. One is a take-home kit that lets you whiten your teeth at your convenience. It begins by taking an impression of your teeth, from which we make trays that hold the whitening gel.
The second option is Zoom! in-office whitening, a light-activated system that can give you a stunning smile in a single office visit.
The teeth whitening options offered by Flax Dental in Atlanta far surpass anything you can get from a tube or a whitening strip. We also offer porcelain veneers, dental implants, and a wide range of other services. Schedule an appointment with us today.
