Teeth Whitening by Dr. Kellye N. Rice
According the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), when people were asked what they desire most to enhance their smile, the overwhelming response was they wanted whiter teeth. We know that a beautiful smile can make a difference in how you feel about yourself. That is why we at Cool Springs Laser Dentistry located in Brentwood, TN, offer premium teeth whitening services to our clients.
Common Causes of Teeth Discoloration
The color of a person’s teeth can become dull and stained resulting from various factors, including drinking tea, coffee, and wine. Foods including berries, citrus as well as tomato paste can ruin an individual’s smile.
What to Expect at a Routine Teeth Whitening Session
The dental practitioner will make sure you are a good candidate for this treatment by checking out your medical history and examining your teeth. The process begins with the patient relaxed in the dental chair while the dentist applies gel or inserts a rubber dam or shield over the gums to protect them from irritation.
The whitening solution is then spread over the stained surface of the teeth. In some cases, heat in the form of a laser or LED light might be applied to intensify the procedure. The visual effects of the whitening solution can appear within 30 to 60 minutes.
Common Questions about Teeth Whitening
- How long does it last? Your teeth can maintain their brightness for more than a year if a person uses cautions when consuming items that stain.
- Will it damage my enamel? Under the supervision of a licensed dentist, the whitening process is completely safe for your enamel and gums.
- What can I do to maintain my beautiful smile? If you must drink and eat teeth staining products, make it a habit to brush immediately after consumption. Getting retouches from your dentist from time to time will keep your smile gleaming.
