If you’re dissatisfied with the color of your teeth, you’ve probably attempted to whiten them yourself. Over-the-counter whitening strips, brightening toothpaste, home remedies like oil pulling or baking soda. While all these options may subtly brighten your stained teeth, most patients don’t see the results they desire using these methods. Your best solution to brighten your teeth, and have the results last long-term, is professional teeth whitening! Our team offers office-based teeth whitening in Waterford, CT with professional-grade bleaching agents that can brighten your teeth multiple shades lighter in just one visit to our office.
Comparing Teeth Whitening Solutions
Professional teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures patients choose, and for good reason. This solution has numerous benefits that other methods don’t offer. Over-the-counter whitening strips may work for some time, but often cause tooth and gum sensitivity and wear down the tooth enamel if used too often. Home remedies, such as baking soda and activated charcoal, and whitening toothpaste may show minimal changes in tooth color but are often abrasive and can result in enamel erosion and tooth sensitivity as well. In almost all cases with these methods, results may take weeks or even months to show, and even then, they may be minimal.
No methods provide the instantaneous and dramatic results in just a few hours as that of our professional teeth whitening solutions. The professional-grade bleaching agents found in our whitening solutions soak deep into your tooth enamel, to remove internal as well as surface-level stains. Additionally, most patients report that they did not experience any tooth or gum sensitivity during or after their whitening session. We’ll help you choose the most complementary shade and monitor your treatment for the best possible results. Generally, if you maintain a good oral hygiene routine, professional cleanings, and minimize teeth-staining foods and beverages, your teeth have the potential to remain noticeably white long-term!
