The Truth About Teeth Whitening

straight and happy smileIf you feel like your smile isn’t as white as it could be, or you become embarrassed when smiling due to teeth discoloration or stains, teeth whitening may be the solution for you. A dazzling smile doesn’t just appear. It requires oral hygiene maintenance at-home and in-office. Regular dental checkups and cleanings along with brushing, flossing, and mouthwash all reduce the chance of disease, decay, and organic wear to your teeth, gums, and other soft tissues in the mouth. Dr. Pizzi explains the cosmetic dentistry treatment offered at Modern Dentistry of Shrewsbury to brighten your teeth exponentially and enhance your oral health.

What To Expect

A thorough examination of teeth stains and discoloration will be completed prior to administering or supplying the patient with their in-office or at-home teeth whitening treatment. After the examination, Dr. Pizzi will discuss with the patient which type of cosmetic whitening treatment would serve them best in correlation with their stains or discoloration. 

If Dr. Pizzi determines that the in-office/at-home professional teeth whitening system is for you, he will take impressions of your teeth. These impressions are sent to a lab where custom-fitted trays are created. Once the trays are complete, you will receive your treatment in-office, or you will take the trays home to administer the treatment yourself as recommended by Dr. Pizzi.

Which Types Of Teeth Whitening Are Offered?

Modern Dentistry at Shrewsbury utilizes the professional teeth whitening system called KoR Whitening Deep Bleaching System. The system blends in-office and at-home whitening to accommodate those looking for a solution that fits their lifestyle and timeframe throughout the day. Also, Dr. Pizzi may suggest over-the-counter whitening products for mild extrinsic stains instead of the professional whitening system, which targets the deeper, tougher stains. 

What Are The Benefits To Teeth Whitening?

A bright, dazzling smile will offer you quite a few benefits. Some involve the health of your mouth and others reflect your emotions. The following list show some benefits of the professional teeth whitening system offered by Modern Dentistry at Shrewsbury: 

  • A confidence boost
  • A dazzling, white smile (several shades brighter)
  • Professional whitening possesses a more powerful effect than OTC systems.
  • In-office whitening allows for adjustment to any sensitivities
