When we think of fall we think of picture perfect colors on the trees. It also makes the perfect time for that picture perfect smile. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry found that 99.7% of adults believe an attractive smile makes a person more appealing. Most adults also felt that a whiter, brighter smile was the most important aspect to improve their smile. Dental Pointe in Naperville offers patients in-office teeth whitening and take-home whitening that can be done in a short amount of time.
Why Your Teeth Become Stained
There are many daily rituals that you may be doing that continue to make your teeth dull and unappealing. Drinks like coffee, tea and red wine are known to stain your teeth over time. In fact, over time teeth can become more absorbent and vulnerable to staining from certain foods and drinks. Using tobacco has also been proven to cause unwanted stains, another reason to consider being tobacco free.
What Our Office Can Offer for You
Professional teeth whitening, which is done at our office, is a quick and effective choice you can make when it comes to teeth whitening. It is also the safest method and the longest lasting. The in-office teeth whitening procedure for teeth whitening includes:
- Comprehensive Consultation: Our dentist will examine your teeth and gums before a whitening treatment. Then your smile will then be matched to a shade guide. This will help you to see your measurable results after the process is complete.
- Preparation of Teeth: You will need to have an in-office cleaning before the teeth whitening can be done. This ensures that food particles, bacteria and tarter will not interfere with the whitening agent.
- Application of the Whitening Agent: A protective coating or device will be used to ensure the whitening agent does not bother your gums.
- Duration of Treatment: Some patients can see an eight-shade difference after just an hour! Depending on the treatment, a special light may be used to intensify the teeth whitening gel.
We also give you the option of take-home whitening. Custom-made trays for the top and bottom teeth will be filled with whitening gel, and you can apply it with ease at home. Please make sure to follow the step-by-step instructions given by your dentist.
Make a change along with the leaves and get the bright smile you’ve always wanted. Contact our office today for more information or to schedule an appointment.
