Store-bought products tend to cost much more than they’re worth, delivering poor results. Instead of wasting your time and money, whiten your teeth the safe, ultra-effective way at Contemporary Family Dentistry. We provide in-office teeth whitening as well as custom trays for you to take home and keep your smile white for years to come.
PROFESSIONAL WHITENING VS. OVER THE COUNTER SOLUTIONS
Over time, your teeth can change color for a variety of reasons. Even with proper oral hygiene, your teeth can fall prey to common discoloration causes. Coffee, tea, soda, and red wine can all stain your teeth due to chromogens, or pigments, that attach to your enamel. Tobacco use can stain your teeth from tar and nicotine, as can certain medications and antibiotics. Simply getting older can result in tooth discoloration, as the outer layer of enamel thins and shows the lower yellowish layer (the dentin).
Over-the-counter whitening solutions, such as whitening toothpastes, trays, or stain removers, often do not deliver the desired results. They may be effective to a small degree, but will not compare to the exceptional results you’ll see with an in-office treatment or trays from your dentist.
Whitening at the dentist is fast, controlled, and highly effective. At Contemporary Family Dentistry, we handle whitening with the utmost professionalism. We use state-of-the-art techniques, tools, and products to achieve a sparkling white with long-term results. Our methods are proven, certified, and completely safe. You’ll have a brilliantly white smile in no time.
IS PROFESSIONAL WHITENING FOR YOU?
Everyone wants a whiter smile! Bright white teeth are signs of a healthy person. A whiter smile could give you the boost of confidence you need during job interviews, first dates, and important events like senior portraits or wedding photos. If you’re self-conscious about the color of your teeth, you’re not alone. Fortunately, there is a local solution that will garner real results – Contemporary Family Dentistry!
We don’t recommend investing in store-bought whitening solutions – not because we’re a dentist office and want your business, but because they don’t really work that well for one or more of the following reasons:
- If you have slightly crooked or rotated teeth, something like whitening strips will leave portions of your teeth discolored.
- Store-bought trays won’t fit your mouth, and can lead to painful gum irritation.
- Toothpastes and washes typically don’t do anything at all.
- Trendy solutions like activated charcoal can have negative effects on the gums and enamel from scratchy granules and leave a black outline around your gumline.
- Percentages of the active ingredient, hydrogen peroxide, is not available over-the-counter in strengths high enough to get dramatic whitening.
If you want real results, you need to get professional-strength products. The only proven, tried-and-true teeth whitening solution is one you’ll find at your dentist’s office. Other solutions go generally unregulated, with no way to tell what bleaching agents or dosages they’re using. Don’t take a gamble on your oral health and hygiene. It’s not worth the risk. Go the safe, effective route with in-office cleanings at Contemporary Family Dentistry, where we can get whitening up to three shades in only 20 min. We can also create custom whitening trays for you to take home and use with strengths only available at your dentist’s office. Contact us today for more information! You could be just an appointment away from a brand new smile.
