Your dentist can provide the best teeth whitening solutions in Acworth
Making over the smile doesn't have to mean multiple visits to the dentist, or even costly treatment. For many of us, simply removing discoloration can make a world of difference in how our smile translates into vitality and friendliness. Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckley have years of experience helping patients improve their smiles quickly and effectively. One way in which we serve our patients is with professional teeth whitening.
Today, several options for lifting stains from teeth, and many products that claim to be the best teeth whitening solution are available. What we have found in our office near Acworth is that home whitening works just as well as in-office whitening, if not better. Compared to more expensive in-office whitening procedures, home whitening kits using professional grade gel actually provide more predictable results, as stain lifting occurs gradually over the course of a few weeks. With this process, patients have more control over their smile whitening process, brightening their smile to their desired shade of white.
Teeth whitening is suitable for most people. Over time, many of us will experience the dulling of our bright white smile, simply because we consume foods and beverages that have tiny molecules that can settle in enamel. Lifestyle habits, such as coffee consumption or the use of tobacco products, also have an impact on the color of teeth. Professional whitening solution contains powerful peroxide that penetrates enamel and breaks up stain-causing molecules, so teeth appear brighter, healthier, and more attractive.
Not every person may be suited to teeth whitening, however, which is why it is important to visit your dentist for treatment. Individuals who have received restorations such as veneers, crowns, or a dental bridge are better served by alternatives than the standard smile brightening treatment. This is because the materials used in restorations do not respond to teeth whitening solution. Hence, the result of conventional whitening would be that the restoration stands out from other teeth. The solution is to either replace restorations to match the color of whitened teeth, or to whiten teeth using dental bonding or veneers.
