If you are looking to improve the appearance of your smile then teeth whitening is an obvious first step. You have a lot of options to do so, you’ll notice quite a few if you walk down your drug store aisles. But for safer, faster, and more effective results trust in teeth whitening from your local Sturgeon Bay, WI, professionals of Door County Dental Care, Dr. Tyler Hubbard and Dr. Regan Luders.
Bleaching agents present even on over-the-counter products can damage your gums and teeth if improperly used. But even though your dentist uses a more concentrated formula of these the entire process is safer. It is performed entirely within the safety of your dentist’s office, with your gums protected throughout the procedure.
An in-office whitening session can take from around one to two hours and you’ll be able to see results almost immediately. During the treatment, your doctor will use ultraviolet (UV) light to help accelerate the process by activating the bleaching agents. Over-the-counter products can take multiple uses and often much longer before you start to notice results. Much more if you’re relying on a whitening toothpaste.
Because your dentist is able to use a more concentrated formula your results are not only faster but also far more noticeable. Many who have undergone the procedure notice their teeth to be about eight shades whiter than before. Something that’s just not possible with over-the-counter treatments without going against manufacturer instructions and by severely risking the health of your gums and teeth.
