Over time, smiles tend to lose their sparkle. Tobacco, coffee, red wine, and even aging can all dull your teeth. Even healthy foods like dark-colored fruits and vegetables will darken your smile over time. This doesn’t mean you should stop eating healthy foods. You certainly don’t have to put up with a darker smile. At South Chico Dental Care, we offer affordable and effective solutions to improve the appearance of your smile. Professional teeth whitening is a great solution. Many people are surprised at how much better their smile looks after whitening their teeth. The process is safe, comfortable, and convenient. Dr. Surh offers both in-office and take-home teeth whitening so that you can choose the option that best meets your needs. In-Office Teeth Whitening Professional in-office whitening can make incredible improvements to your smile in a very short amount of time. Just two twenty-minute sessions can brighten your smile considerably. Many people choose this option if they have a special event coming up that they want to look their best for, such as a wedding, job interview, or reunion. The process is simple. We apply a barrier gel to your gums and then apply the whitening gel to your teeth. The gel does its work for twenty minutes, and then we remove the old gel and apply fresh gel. Most people notice an immediate improvement. Your teeth will continue to whiten over the next twelve to twenty-four hours. The whitening system we use contains an added ingredient to prevent sensitivity. This means that just about anyone can whiten their teeth with no discomfort. Take-Home Teeth Whitening Would you rather whiten your teeth in your own home? We can discuss whether our professional-strength take-home kits are a good option for you. We start by taking impressions of your teeth. This allows us to create customized whitening trays designed to fit your teeth perfectly. We also recommend having a professional cleaning before you begin whitening your teeth. This prevents any plaque or tartar build-up from causing uneven results. We’ll show you how to use the trays and the gel. At home, you wear your trays for the directed amount of time over the next couple of weeks. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to call our Chico dental office. After your treatment is complete, you can return to our office. We’ll compare your new shade with your old shade. Most people are amazed at the dramatic improvement!
