So much action takes place during the summer months! Graduations, class reunions, family reunions, weddings…
One common feature at all of these special events is that plenty of pictures will be taken (and probably plastered across various Facebook and Instagram pages!). Are you comfortable smiling big for the camera, or are you embarrassed by your yellow or discolored teeth?
If you want to quickly improve the appearance of your smile, visit our Hazelwood dental office for professional in-office teeth whitening. This fast and effective procedure can give you dramatic results in just an hour!
Why In-Office Teeth Whitening?
In-office whitening gives you professional results remarkably fast. Even the busiest people can fit a session into their packed schedule. All you have to do is kick back in our comfy treatment chairs and relax while we take care of everything. Many people tell us that their whitening session was the most relaxing part of their day.
When you’ve got a lot going on (or you have a special event that snuck up on you), you don’t have time to mess around with trays or strips from the drugstore. You want results, and you want them now. And in-office whitening delivers.
Is In-Office Whitening Right for You?
As long as your teeth and gums are healthy, teeth whitening is probably perfectly fine. Dr. Burgdorf will examine your teeth to make sure that you don’t have any concerns, and we also recommend a professional cleaning before your whitening treatment. This eliminates the risk of any traces of plaque marring your beautiful results.
Additionally, it’s important to know that dental restorations don’t respond to teeth bleaching, so if you have crowns, veneers, or other restorations, we will need to take this into consideration. We don’t want your restorations to stand out from your other teeth! We want your whole smile to look beautiful and natural.
Will My Teeth Look Unnatural?
We’ve all heard and seen jokes about people who whiten their teeth so much that they look scary and weird. Guess what? This can’t actually happen. The way the teeth whitening product works is that it forces oxygen into the enamel, which in turn forces out the stains. Your teeth won’t go whiter than what is natural for them.
As an example, think about your carpet. You’ve probably noticed that as your carpet ages, it becomes dingy. When you use a rug cleaner to wash the carpet, the carpet looks bright and beautiful again – like it was when you originally bought it. This is what teeth whitening does to your teeth.
