At Oak Hollow Family Dentistry, we provide our patients with a variety of services to choose from when it comes to restoring or enhancing their smile. Cosmetic dental procedures have been developed to give patients ways to change the appearance of their smile into something they love and brings them confidence. One of the simplest ways you can enhance your smile is through professional teeth whitening.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Although you put the necessary effort into keeping your teeth clean and healthy, it is still possible that over time, due to what we consume, your teeth can start to discolor and stain. Substances such as wine, alcohol, cigarettes, and coffee, are known to stain the natural shade or whiteness of our teeth.
For our patients in the Draper, Utah area, who are wanting to enhance their smile, we offer an in-office professional whitening treatment that will brighten and whiten your smile. In your whitening appointment, we use professional teeth whitening equipment and whitening bleach to ensure the safety of your teeth and other surrounding tissues. We will work closely with you to make your custom treatment plan to achieve your desired results.
Within just one professional whitening session in our office, your teeth can become significantly brighter and whiter.
Over-The Counter Whitening Products
We have seen that many patients who are desiring to have a whiter smile are first turning towards over-the-counter whitening products. Although there are many of these products that have been shown to deliver minor results, the need for consistent treatment and re-purchase is necessary to maintain the desired shade.
Repurchasing and re-whitening can start to become very costly and time consuming. We believe that store-bought products can be helpful in maintaining a bright white smile, but only after a professional treatment has been done.
Maintaining Your New Smile
Once you have undergone a professional whitening treatment here in our office, there are recommended steps and processes that we suggest you follow to maintain your smile. Professional teeth whitening treatments do work and give lasting results, but are not considered permanent. The patient needs to do what they can to maintain their new smile. Some additional steps we may recommend include:
- Please continue to improve your at-home oral health habits such as brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash. With at-home care, we would also highly recommend staying up-to-date with your bi-yearly cleanings and examinations.
- We suggest limiting your consumption of harmful foods and beverages that could reverse the whitening treatment. If teeth do become stained or discolored after treatment, we can help revive your smile with another treatment.
- We recommend using a whitening toothpaste to help keep your teeth consistently clean and bright.
