Many types of teeth whitening, but not all are safe and effective
Bright, dazzling teeth: we love them, but not everyone has them. One could say that we are fortunate to live in a time when there are so many types of teeth whitening treatment from which to choose. On the other hand, sometimes more choices does not bring more advantage. With so many DIY, commercial, and professional methods of teeth whitening promoted today, choosing the best type of teeth whitening can be a real challenge.
Dr. Greenberg has been helping patients form Charleston, Summerville, and surrounding areas successfully remove set-in stains for years. To get the results you really want, all you need to do is schedule your visit at Mouth Carolina Dentistry.
DIY not something for the smile
With the power of the internet, it is easy to find methods of teeth whitening that you can do at home. Applying solutions such as lemon, baking soda, or peroxide may sound easy and safe. These products can be purchased at the grocery store, after all. However, many people have had unfortunate experiences using home remedies for discoloration.
- Lemons brighten teeth through the effects of acid on teeth. Acid of any kind, however, leads to the degeneration of tooth enamel. It is acid that erodes enamel and causes cavities. Acid also leads to excessive wear that leaves teeth vulnerable to damage.
- Baking soda is abrasive and does little more than polish teeth. The abrasions from tiny particles can also lead to undue wear.
- Peroxide is the base of professional teeth whitening treatments. Without proper dosage and application, this substance can cause a great deal of damage to gum tissue.
Trust your dentist with your smile
You trust your dentist to preserve and restore healthy teeth and gums with general treatments. It makes sense to leave teeth whitening to a licensed professional who has been specifically trained in the safest methods of stain removal. Dr. Greenberg has been in practice for many years and has seen a number of “innovative” teeth whitening treatments come and go. All the while, his patients have been able to achieve outstanding results using the mother of all teeth whitening, the home whitening kit.
Home whitening has been, since its inception, the best way to remove set-in stains from enamel. Our professional grade whitening solution is applied to teeth in custom fitted whitening trays that keep gel where it belongs. Our patients experience little, if any, tooth sensitivity, and begin to see a brighter, healthier smile within a day or two of beginning treatment.
