When was the last time you flashed your pearly whites at a friend or family member? If it was recently, did the color of your teeth cross your mind before you shared your smile with your peers? Many people do not think twice about the color of their teeth, but for many more, unsightly stains and discoloration can start to negatively impact their self-esteem and hold them back from forming strong interpersonal relationships. Nobody should ever have to feel less than worthy due to the color of their teeth, which is why we here at Harmony Dental are proud to offer cosmetic teeth whitening services as part of a smile makeover at our Eugene office.
What Makes Professional Teeth Whitening Superior?
The color of your teeth says a lot about you, whether you want it to or not. It can reveal your oral hygiene, your health, and even your lifestyle. For instance, people who drink lots of red wine or coffee may start to accumulate dark spots of discoloration on their teeth. People who smoke may also have serious stains on their teeth.
Even your medical history is on display when your teeth are less than white since certain tetracycline antibiotics can stain your teeth. Even thinning dental enamel or tooth decay, caused by poor diet or poor brushing and flossing habits, can show up in the color of your teeth.
With all of these things revealed about you just when you open your mouth for a smile, it is no wonder that you would want to have the brightest and whitest smile possible! When you are looking to whiten your teeth, please resist the urge to run to the nearest big box store to pick up a box of over-the-counter whitening gel. That would be a terrible and costly mistake.
In many cases, these gels are not carefully regulated, and furthermore, the concentrations of peroxide in it may not be good for your teeth. You may wind up severely damaging your dental enamel or blanching (accidentally whitening) your gums, leading to chemical burns.
When you come to us for a professional tooth whitening, you can be confident that we are using only the highest quality of professional grade dental bleach. We will also carefully apply the whitening product to your teeth to ensure that your gums are not injured in the process. We have the knowledge and the skill to help minimize any discomfort to you to prevent lasting damage to your teeth or lingering tooth sensitivity. In addition to having your teeth professionally whitened in our office, we may also send you home with a take-home kit to continue your whitening in the comfort of your own home. This may include custom fitted trays to make sure you get the best possible results. We also have the option to whiten your teeth with laser dentistry, which helps enhance the treatment.
