Teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment designed to remove stains from your teeth and return them to a lighter, brighter color. Teeth whitening can be performed in the office at Leesville Dental Studio or with the help of a take-home whitening kit. Your dentist can explain each of these options in more detail so you can make the choice that’s best for you.
Teeth whitening may be beneficial if your teeth are discolored due to your eating and drinking habits. It may also be helpful for patients who have discolored teeth because of poor dental hygiene.
However, if your teeth are discolored because of medications or illness, they may not respond well to teeth whitening treatments. In such cases, you’ll need some other type of cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Professional whitening typically provides better results than over-the-counter whitening kits. Leesville Dental Studio offers Zoom!® that can brighten your smile by several shades in just one visit.
Whether you choose to have your whitening treatment in the office or at home, you’ll enjoy better, longer-lasting results if you opt for professional whitening.
In addition, if you opt for a take-home whitening kit, the tray you receive will be reusable. Whitening trays included in over-the-counter whitening kits are usually good for one use only.
Teeth whitening may cause temporary sensitivity. However, this problem isn’t permanent and will get better on its own after a few days. Professional teeth whitening shouldn’t cause any permanent damage to your enamel.
The results of teeth whitening usually last from six months to two years. However, results will vary from person to person. When your teeth begin showing signs of discoloration again, you can safely have another whitening treatment.
The cost of teeth whitening varies. This treatment is considered cosmetic, so most dental insurance policies won’t cover it. Consult Leesville Dental Studio for a detailed quote of your estimated treatment expenses.
