There are many reasons why your teeth may be stained or yellowed. The good news is that you can make them whiter and brighter safely with professional teeth whitening in Bridgeton, MO.
Store-Bought Whitening Products
Teeth whitening is a booming industry, as is evidenced when you go down the aisles of your local supermarket or pharmacy. Many brands promise Hollywood-level smiles, but are these baseless claims?
Store-bought brands will likely be a waste of time, energy, and money. In truth, only professional-grade bleaching gel has the strength to lift accumulated stains that turn your pearly whites yellow. The level of concentration accessible to consumers is reduced for our safety in case of mishandling, so patients would need multiple applications to see any results—which could damage your enamel.
Other store brands contain abrasive ingredients that can erode your enamel, making your teeth appear even more yellow. Since the whitening trays are not custom-fitted to fit your teeth, the bleaching gel may leak out and damage your gums and teeth.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
Patients who want uniform, safe results should come to see us at Dr. Kevin Burgdorf, DDS, for a brighter smile. We start each cosmetic dental procedure with a dental cleaning and exam to remove any plaque and watch for oral health issues. Removing the plaque guarantees that the whitening treatment is uniform and not splotchy.
Under the supervision of a dental professional, your cosmetic treatment is designed for your teeth and gums, so patients don't have to worry about tooth sensitivity or damage.
