Nearly everyone is looking for a brighter, whiter smile these days. And why not? It’s an inexpensive way to brighten and freshen the appearance of your smile while boosting self-confidence. A professional whitening treatment can erase years of coffee stains in just a matter of a few sessions. Did you know we offer teeth whitening at Bryan Hill, DDS?
Why Do I Need Teeth Whitening?
It’s a rare individual that keeps the same white shade of teeth throughout their lives. There are many factors that can contribute to the darkening of your teeth. For instance, If you are a smoker, tobacco smoke can yellow your teeth. Beverages like coffee and tea can cause your teeth to become discolored, as well. With age, your teeth can appear darker. There are also medications that can darken your teeth, such as antibiotics and chemotherapy medication.
People choose to have their teeth whitened for many reasons. Sometimes, people whiten their teeth because they want to look picture perfect for a photo or a special occasion, such as a wedding or a graduation. Others might be going for a job interview and need a little confidence boost. Or perhaps there is no special occasion, and you just want your teeth to look and feel your best. Whatever the reason may be, if you aren’t happy with the appearance of your smile, we would love to help you whiten your teeth.
How is Teeth Whitening Done?
There are lots of ways to whiten your teeth. You can try to whiten your teeth over time using a whitening toothpaste, mouthwash, or Whitestrips. This may brighten your teeth a couple of shades over several weeks. If you need a lot more whitening, or you need your teeth whitened in a short amount of time, we can handle the task.
In our Spokane office, we have two professional teeth whitening options available for our patients provided by the trusted brand Opalescence. With the first option, our team of professionals here at Bryan Hill DDS, will create custom whitening trays just for you. These trays will conform to the unique contours of your smile, fit securely, and evenly distribute the professional-grade bleaching agent. Many of our patients choose to go this personalized route for their whitening needs and thrilled with their results as well as the comfort and longevity of the custom-fitted trays.
The second option we provide is called Opalescence Go. This is a great method for those eager to begin brightening their smile right after the initial consultation. There is no need to wait for the creation of custom trays as you take home the whitening system following your first appointment. The quality of the whitening agent for this option is also a higher grade than you can find over the counter in stores.
One important thing to note about professional teeth whitening is that patients with periodontal disease or active decay will require treatment prior to whitening. This is due to the power of the bleaching agent in professional whitening products which could cause discomfort in patients with periodontal disease or active decay.
