Brighter Days And Smiles Ahead
It’s almost summer, and the sun is shining, so why shouldn’t your smile shine, too? While there are plenty of gimmicks and over-the-counter products to help you get whiter teeth, they may not necessarily be the best option. You might find that you’ve tried numerous methods with little or no results. At Perimeter Dental Group, we know that not every method will work for every patient. With our professional whitening treatments, we customize them to your individual mouth so you can be sure to get better, safer results just in time for summer.
At-Home Methods vs. Professional Methods
Although over-the-counter whitening strips are a cost-effective option, they can cause painful tooth and gum sensitivity. You may also experience uneven color across your teeth, as generic products don’t really reach the crevices between your teeth. Whitening toothpastes can fall short of brightening up your smile, too. And that’s not to mention the multitude of DIY approaches that sound safe, but end up a little risky. While most methods are fine for quick fixes, they are not as powerful and can be more damaging than the teeth whitening services a dentist’s office can provide. Store-bought whitening solutions are typically around 3% carbamide peroxide, the whitening agent, while professional whitening solutions like at Perimeter Dental Group, are 16% to 21% carbamide peroxide, offering you a more effective product. Perimeter Dental Group’s professional services allow patients to achieve a brighter smile while mitigating teeth sensitivity and other risks.
Benefits Of Professional Services
When using over-the-counter methods, you may find that it takes a few sessions or weeks to actually see the results. Teeth whitening services at dental offices often produce quicker results. But that’s not the only great thing about professional teeth whitening. Other benefits include:
- Lasting results: Our professional-grade whitening gel gives patients a strong, thorough whitening, meaning they don’t have to endure multiple sessions or constant upkeep.
- Safety and comfort: Getting a whitening treatment in a dental office means you get a professional performing or monitoring the entire procedure.
- Customized treatments: Your current dental health needs to be considered in reaching your cosmetic goals. Professional services take that into consideration to create ad treatment tailored to each individual patient.
- Increased confidence: Our procedure is designed to remove stains, brighten your teeth and make you feel great about your smile.
How It Works
At Perimeter Dental Group, we start the whitening process by taking an impression of your teeth and creating a custom mold for you. Patients will wear the trays (like retainers) either for a one hour timeframe or overnight, depending on your solutions preference and our recommendation to your tooth sensitivity. The custom trays ensure the carbamide peroxide solution gets into all those nooks and crannies to give you an all-around even shade. After the initial treatment, patients can use their custom trays and our low-cost whitening syringe refills for multiple applications to help maintain their brighter smile for years to come.
Keep Your Pearly Whites Shining Bright
There are a wide variety of teeth whitening methods out in the world. From DIY tips and tricks to over-the-counter strips, and professional-grade dental grays. If you’re looking to whiten your teeth, you can be sure to find something to help. But with so many options, it can be hard to find one that works right for you. Perimeter Dental Group’s custom whitening services can get you a brighter smile while keeping your teeth healthy.
