For most people a bright white smile is a sign of a healthy mouth and a desirable social trait. Unfortunately, the white teeth we are born with dull and yellow over time due to years of eating and drinking. Other factors that can discolor teeth include habits like smoking and taking certain medications or can be the result of illness. Thankfully, modern dentistry can renew teeth and bring them closer to their natural whiteness. At our 10954 dental office Dr. Louis S. Sinatra, DDS has a very effective yet inexpensive way to whitening teeth.
At our 10954 dental office our dentist whitens teeth significantly while letting our patients do the whitening in the convenience of their own homes whenever they have the opportunity. Our teeth whitening procedure starts with one visit to our office. During the office visit our doctor will make an impression of your teeth, which will be employed to fabricate form-fitting trays that will be used to hold the bleaching agent snuggly against your teeth. When the trays arrive from the lab our doctor will give them to you with a supply of a special professional strength bleaching agent. The patient will use the trays and bleaching agent for two hours a day for about two weeks, depending on how discolored their teeth are. After the two weeks our dentist will compare the color of their teeth to the color before the whitening process started, it will be several shades whiter following the procedure.
The teeth whitening system used at our 10954 dental office has several advantages over the whitening kits, strips and toothpastes sold in drugstores. Our whitening agent is stronger than the retail variety and designed to work on tooth surfaces. The major advantage is the custom mouth trays which are designed to keep the whitening agent in contact with every tooth surface for maximum exposure to the agent and an even whitening, this is something that the one-size fits all retail kit trays cannot duplicate. If you want to bring your smile back to its original brightness and make a wonderful impression on everyone your meet just give our office a call.
