When you were last with a group of friends, did you notice how much whiter their teeth are than yours? Teeth whitening is a painless cosmetic dental option that many take advantage of. Patients in the Valencia, California area visit Dr. Brian Gradinger, DMD, for professional teeth whitening treatments. Cosmetic dental services have grown immensely in popularity in recent years, with teeth whitening being at the top of the list.
You could (or maybe already have) try over-the-counter products, but there are reasons you should go for professional treatment.
Here are some reasons you should consider having your teeth whitened by your local dentist.
A critical factor in how white your teeth get from a whitening treatment is the concentration of the bleaching agents used in the treatment. If you use too much, you could damage your teeth and gums and cause hypersensitivity. Without a dental expert there to either perform the treatment themselves or, for at-home options, provide you with clear instructions on how to use the whitening agent, you could harm yourself.
Results from over-the-counter whitening options are often unreliable and can take longer to achieve. Within a single appointment for custom whitening trays, your teeth will be as white as they have ever been for the long term.
Teeth whitening products you buy from a drug or grocery store are not very effective. For one thing, they claim to be “one size fits all,” meaning you have to boil or microwave a whitening tray. This results in uneven application due to poor fit. With custom impressions for at-home whitening solutions, your whitening tray will be custom-made for your smile, resulting in exceptional results.
If you are ready to dive into cosmetic dentistry, there is no better gateway than a teeth whitening treatment. To learn more or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Gradinger, please call (661) 450-6650.
