Obtaining bright smiles with Charleston area Dentist, Dr. Greenberg
Charleston area patients who are seeking a solution to tooth discoloration and staining are encouraged to speak with Dr. Andrew Greenberg to learn about tooth bleaching and whitening solutions for bright, beautiful smiles. The doctor and his team can assist patients in achieving the smile of their dreams, and often, it starts with an at-home whitening kit.
Discoloration and staining of the teeth can be caused by many factors, including:
- Staining from sodas, coffees, wine, berries, and tobacco
- Deposits of plaque and tartar on the teeth
- Tetracycline use during childhood (antibiotic medication that causes permanent staining)
- Excess fluoride ingestion during formation of teeth
- Trauma that results in brown, yellow, or gray spots on the surface
Dr. Andrew Greenberg of Mouth Carolina Dentistry understands the frustrations some patients may have with over-the-counter whitening methods. Many of these strips, mouthwashes, toothpastes, and trays do not provide noticeable results. Patients who want bright smiles often turn to the assistance of their dentist for help. Dr. Andrew Greenberg and his team provide take-home whitening kits that far surpass the results of over-the-counter treatments.
Our take-home whitening kits start with custom-made whitening trays. Impressions are made to fabricate quality trays from professional-grade plastics. These are custom made for a precise fit. Patients are also supplied with stronger bleaching solutions than those available at the local drugstore. They are educated on how to use the whitening kit for safe, effective results in the privacy of their own home.
Before patients undergo whitening, they must visit Dr. Andrew Greenberg for a full-service cleaning. This removes as much plaque, tartar, and bacteria from the surfaces of the teeth and gums as possible to allow the whitening product to work its best. Then, patients can use them daily to whiten their smile gradually up to eight shades lighter in just a few weeks. Patients can visit Mouth Carolina Dentistry regularly to have new molds made or obtain more bleaching solution when necessary.Back to Teeth Whitening Page
