Should I Whiten my Teeth Without My Dentist?
It is possible to whiten your teeth without a dentist; however, there is little guarantee you will receive the results that you want. Teeth whitening products that are featured on TV and sit on supermarket shelves are not created equal. This makes it difficult to differentiate quality from over-the-counter brands. Here are a few reasons why Dr. Shigley at Palmetto Oral and Facial Surgery is a better investment:
Tailored Prescription Strength Gel
With years of medical training and experience, Dr. Shigley can recommend the most effective prescription strength whitening gel for your teeth. Specifically, he will choose a gel with the best ingredients and efficacy to match your needs. Typically, store-bought gels are best for patients with minor staining or patients who want to prevent stain accumulation in the future. Compared with store-bought gels, prescription strength gels lighten teeth by more shades, faster.
Every smile is uniquely shaped and a generic teeth whitening tray will not fit and treat your teeth as effectively as custom whitening from Palmetto Oral and Facial Surgery. Furthur, poor-fitting trays or strips can leave important areas and surfaces untouched. Two options to ensure optimal contact with your teeth is custom fit whitening trays or in-office treatments. Both processes guarantee results and eliminate patchy bleach patterns.
Guaranteed Expert Whitening Treatments
Take home and in-office treatments offer a wide range of possibilities for dental whitening. Philips Zoom! Whitening can whiten up to eight shades with little to no sensitivity. Instantly whiten your teeth with the in-office treatment or whiten your teeth within seven days at home.
Discolored teeth can be a symptom of more than a stained tooth. Some tarnished teeth may have nerve damage, a cavity, or internal staining that occurred during tooth development. It is important to visit Dr. Shigley at Palmetto Oral and Facial Surgery to ensure the health of your teeth before proceeding with teeth whitening.
