Stained or discolored teeth are a very common problem for adults of all ages. Professional teeth whitening is the most common cosmetic procedure performed in our office. We can help you achieve truly dramatic results in as little as one week’s time.
As far as treatments in cosmetic dentistry, professional teeth whitening is one of the most efficient and cost-effective available today. When performed by a trained professional, teeth whitening is a safe procedure that quickly provides noticeable results. We do not have to alter any natural tooth structure since our goal is only to remove the stains, leaving a bright white surface.
Why Professional Teeth Whitening is Effective
If you looked in your drug store lately, you know that it can be pretty confusing when you go to select a whitening treatment. You can easily be overwhelmed by hundreds of brands and types of products available, each one promising to give you a dazzling smile.
Have you ever wondered how effective these products are? They will definitely produce some results, but not nearly as dramatic as those achieved with professional teeth whitening products.
For a truly remarkable smile transformation in the shortest amount of time, professional teeth whitening is the best choice. With custom fabricated whitening trays and professional whitening agents from our Lafayette dental office, we can achieve results that are far superior to over-the-counter products.
The secret to professional teeth whitening products is the strength of the whitening agent used, which is much more concentrated than store-bought whiteners. Since we know how to use professional products safely, helping you achieve whitening of your teeth by as much as six shades.
Maintaining Your White Smile
Professional teeth whitening treatments are very effective, but you still need to take certain steps to maintain your refreshed smile:
Maintain an efficient, thorough oral hygiene routine
Avoid stain-producing foods like coffee, dark tea, and berries
Stop smoking and using any other tobacco products
Incorporating these tips into your daily routine will do a lot to prolong the effects of your whitening, but we will still need to perform periodic touch-up treatments every six months or so. A professional take-home whitening kit is also a very convenient option for maintaining results at your own pace in the privacy of your home.
