What does it take to really change the way you look? Hours on end at the gym? Expensive trips to a cutting-edge hair salon? We at Dennis J Coleman DDS – Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Davidson believe that a routine trip to your dentist will do just the trick.
You may not love going to the dentist, but you will be amazed at the difference teeth whitening can make. It is a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure that can have dramatic results. Just ask your dentist to help you determine which teeth whitening regimen would be most appropriate and effective for you. Here are three methods to consider:
Bleaching in-office. Sometimes called chairside bleaching, a special light is used while a bleaching agent is applied to the teeth. Your dentist will use a rubber shield or protective gel to keep your tender gums safe from the whitening agent.
Bleaching at home. Although this is done at home, you should know that the peroxide-containing whiteners used do have potential side effects. So, always consult with your dentist first. He or she can direct you to the best at-home whiteners available, as there are many to choose from.
Whitening toothpaste. When a toothpaste carries the ADA Seal of Acceptance, it means that it contains special chemicals or polishing agents that increases the surface stain removal benefits of most toothpastes.
Whether it’s veneers and teeth whitening or bonding or even a complete smile makeover, we at Dennis J Coleman DDS – Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Davidson are happy to help you achieve the smile that you want. Call us today for an appointment and consultation. We hope to hear from you soon!
