Lawrence cosmetic dentistry services can produce your brightest smileBy Dr. Les Miller
Cosmetic dentistry offers many ways to improve your smile. Teeth whitening is a treatment that is both economical and conservative. This cosmetic procedure is non-invasive, simple, safe, and does not affect the overall structure of teeth. Teeth whitening does one thing: lifts the stains that have collected, uncovering your brightest smile. Products designed to whiten teeth can be found just about everywhere these days, in the mall, at your local drug store, and even online. With the variety of accessible products, you may consider professional whitening treatment unnecessary.
Professional teeth whitening is superior to other whitening optionsThere are several reasons for brightening your smile with Lawrence dentistry services rather than commercial whiteners.
Commercials promoting mass-produced teeth whitening strips, pastes, or other solutions give the impression of dramatic results. Most people who try such products find they are unable to achieve the level of white they expect. Whitening toothpastes are designed to polish the teeth, removing any residue from surface enamel. Whiteners such as strips or commercial trays may lift light stains, but most people find that, due to the low concentrations of active ingredients in the whitening solution, teeth are not brightened to the extent desired.
The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the look of the smile. By working with your dentist, you are able to ensure that teeth whitening is the most suitable form of smile enhancement based on your particular needs. Although a common procedure, teeth whitening is not ideal for every person. Before beginning cosmetic treatment, your dentist will conduct a thorough examination to ensure no teeth are in need of restorations. Whitening teeth that are damaged in some way poses the risk of whitening gel reaching sensitive nerves, causing discomfort.
Teeth whitening is a safe and effective procedure performed by your dental professional who takes steps to make sure whitening gel remains on teeth, not on gum tissue. Soft tissues, in contact with whitening gel, may experience irritation. Teeth can also become sensitive from whitening gel.
