Teeth Whitening

 A before and after of teeth whitening featuring different sides of the mouth. People who live in Lehighton know that a dazzling, radiant smile can boost your self-esteem and leave a lasting impression. However, factors like coffee, tea, red wine, smoking, and even aging can cause your teeth to become discolored or stained. Teeth whitening has emerged as a popular and effective solution for achieving a brighter smile, enhancing confidence, and revitalizing your overall appearance.

Teeth whitening is a non-invasive and relatively quick procedure that can deliver noticeable results without the need for surgery or extended recovery. Unlike some dental procedures, teeth whitening is reversible. If you are not satisfied with the results, you can discontinue treatment without any permanent changes to your teeth.

Teeth Whitening Options

Teeth whitening treatments come in various forms, each with its unique advantages and considerations. Here are some of the most common options.

In-Office Professional Teeth Whitening

In-office teeth whitening services are performed by a dentist or dental professional near you. It typically involves the application of a highly concentrated bleaching agent to the teeth, which is then activated by a special light or laser. In-office treatments can whiten teeth by several shades in a single session. Comfort Dental Excellence provides these services at our office over on 8555 Interchange Road.

At-Home Teeth Whitening Kits

At-home teeth whitening kits provide a convenient and more budget-friendly option for individuals looking to brighten their smiles. These kits typically include custom-fitted trays and a lower-concentration bleaching gel. By wearing the trays with the gel for a prescribed period, often for several days or weeks, you can achieve the desired level of whitening.

Over-the-Counter Whitening Products

Over-the-counter teeth whitening products like whitening strips, gels, and toothpaste are available at a drugstore near you. These products are convenient and affordable, but they typically contain lower concentrations of whitening agents compared to professional treatments.

Considerations Before Teeth Whitening

Before you decide to whiten your teeth, you must keep a few important things in mind. First, you must have a healthy mouth before you can whiten your teeth. We will need to address any dental issues such as cavities or gum disease before we can begin the whitening process.

Determine what your expectations are for whitening, then schedule a consultation with Dr. Kathiravan Mohan to determine the best teeth whitening approach for your specific needs. We will also attempt to identify the underlying causes of teeth discoloration during the consultation. While teeth whitening can deliver remarkable results, it may not result in a perfect, unnatural shade of white. The degree of whitening can vary from person to person.

Also bear in mind that teeth whitening can lead to temporary tooth sensitivity, which is usually manageable. If you have any concerns, please discuss them with Dr. Kathiravan Mohan. Finally, to maintain the results of your teeth whitening, you will need to practice good oral hygiene practices, eat a balanced diet, and potentially get touch-up treatments over time.

Don't feel pressured into taking on a cosmetic procedure that isn't right for you. But if you decide that whitening is a good idea, let Comfort Dental Excellence take care of it and you'll have the brightest smile in Lehighton.
