Teeth Whitening

What Exactly Is Teeth Whitening?

Believe it or not, we often get this question from Greensboro residents. The goal of teeth whitening is to achieve a whiter and brighter smile. This can be achieved in a number of different ways, and our team of dental professionals is here to help you decide which option will best fit your individual whitening needs. As a result, patients throughout the Greensboro area often leave our office with a brighter smile and more confidence when going to their next meeting or social gathering.

What Does Professional Teeth Whitening Include?

To upgrade the brightness of your teeth, your dentist will need to go beyond the surface of your teeth. To start, they perform an extensive cleaning that removes plaque, bacteria, and tartar that has built up over the past few months and years. They follow that up with a powerful combination of pumice and whitening gel. This combo works hard to remove discoloration and stains and prepare your teeth for the actual whitening treatment. These steps ensure your teeth are both white AND healthy once you’re done.

The typical in-office whitening process will take between 90-120 minutes.  Teeth that are darker in color or experience sensitivity may require more time. Our Greensboro-based practice employs a team of professionals who will work hard to prevent gum irritation, ensure the whitening solution is applied correctly, and that your smile is getting the time and attention it deserves.

Why Can't I Use a Teeth Whitening Kit I Found on the Internet?

Having whiter teeth sounds excellent. Unfortunately, spending more time at the dentist does not. We are aware of the countless whitening strips and kits available on the internet. It may seem tempting to order something off Amazon and to use it while watching Netflix instead of making an appointment at the dentist. However, before you make this important choice, it’s essential to understand the long-term benefits that can only be gained by going to the dentist.

The solutions you see being advertised to you only impact the outer layer of your tooth enamel. In other words, they only affect and improve the surface of your teeth. This may deliver a brighter smile, but it will do very little in terms of keeping your teeth healthy. Greensboro residents have come to us for teeth whitening and have received an in-depth treatment that penetrates deep into your tooth. This ensures your teeth are healthy and your bright smile lasts much longer.

Another significant benefit of seeing a dentist is having a professional oversee the application. When you do this at home, it’s impossible to know if you are doing it correctly. So instead, you have a trained professional with us, ensuring your teeth are being appropriately coated. The result is that your treatment gets done right the first time, and you don’t have to spend more money in the long run on more treatments.
