The benefits of teeth whitening in Kennesaw GA
When looking through magazines and watching television, we are constantly confronted with beautiful smiles that are brilliantly white. It is no wonder that society puts so much importance on a person’s smile. During a survey conducted by the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, 99.7 percent of the respondents said they consider a smile to be an important social asset. One of the most common responses to the question of what makes a smile unattractive the answer was; teeth that are stained, discolored, or yellowed.
When you go to the grocery or drug store, a trip down the dental care aisle shows the vast array of over the counter whitening products including toothpastes, mouthwashes, strips, and one size fits all whitening trays. While some of the options may work better than others do, none of them is as effective as what you can get from 32 Dental. Over the counter products are much weaker than those available from your dentist, making them less effective. Additionally, the over the counter whitening products that use a tray and gel can result in gum irritation because the ill-fitting tray can leak and let the gel contact the gum tissue.
Professional teeth whitening from 32 Dental begins with a thorough dental exam to look for gum disease, cavities, or any other problems that might require treatment prior to whitening your teeth. Your dentist may recommend that you have your teeth professionally cleaned before beginning the whitening process. If there is any tartar or plaque on the surface of the teeth, it can prevent the whitening gel from contacting the tooth enamel. This could result in dark spots on the tooth enamel when the teeth are cleaned. For convenience, patients often schedule their teeth whitening to coincide with their regularly scheduled checkups. If you are a good candidate for teeth whitening, impressions will be taken so custom whitening trays can be fabricated for you. These are worn for 30 minutes a day until you achieve your desired results.
