When you’re getting ready for an important event in your life, such as a wedding or an important business presentation, you don’t want to forget getting your teeth ready too. Having a dingy smile is distracting, especially when you look great otherwise.
However, if you prepare for your big night with teeth whitening, then you will look great from head to toe.
If you use over-the-counter whitening products on your teeth, then it can take several uses of whitening toothpaste or strips to start seeing a difference in your teeth. However, if you visit our teeth whitening dentist, then it will take only about an hour to get a whiter, brighter smile.
The ZOOM® whitening system gives you noticeably whiter teeth while you’re in our dentist’s chair. It uses a 25 percent concentration of hydrogen peroxide to “bleach” your teeth. This professional treatment is much stronger than the over-the-counter kits, toothpaste, or strips that you get in a pharmacy or department store.
Another reason to get a professional whitening treatment is its longevity. With most commercial products, the results fade quickly because they only clean the surfaces of your teeth, and the foods and drinks you consume can quickly re-stain them.
However, with a ZOOM® whitening treatment, our dentists at Gentle Dental Care can get your teeth up to eight shades whiter, and the results will last about one year. Also, you will get an at-home kit to touch-up the teeth whitening treatment in Lansing, MI when the year is up so that you can keep your teeth bright before they start looking dingy again.
You can prolong the results of teeth whitening treatment by being careful about what you eat and drink. Avoid drinking coffee, tea, red wine, and colas so that they won’t stain your teeth. Also, stop using tobacco products, and avoid foods with a tomato-based sauce or that is acidic.
Our dentists, with their professional teeth whitening service, can help give you whiter teeth and avoid stains to prolong your teeth whitening treatment for several weeks, if not months, for a bright, beautiful smile.
