Welcome back to the Dores Dental blog.
We are your source for dental solutions in Longmeadow, MA.
Our services are varied and designed to meet your ever-changing needs. One need that keeps popping up among our patients is for professional teeth whitening.
In fact, dentists across the country are reporting the same thing.
When you think about it, that isn’t really surprising.
After all, many Americans like to start the day with coffee. Some of us have a weakness for chocolate in the afternoon. Others prefer to unwind in the evening with a glass of red wine.
Different strokes for different folks, right?
But no matter where your preferences lie, there’s one thing we all have in common: Our teeth are becoming increasingly yellowed and stained from whatever our daily pleasures entail.
Medicine, tobacco, even richly colored healthy foods are making matters worse. And on top of that, just getting older makes our teeth darken.
So what are we to do?
Whitening solutions have become a big business in this country. Everywhere you turn, you can find a toothpaste, or over-the-counter kit that promises to turn things around for you.
While they are usually relatively cheap to take home, you still won’t get much return on your investment with these so-called fixes.
There are a variety of reasons why they don’t produce results.
First of all, they unfairly expect you, a non-professional, to know how to manage the process. And then they leave you ill-prepared to do so by providing you with shoddy materials.
The whitening gels in these kits are usually weaker than what you would get from a dentist, and the trays that are included don’t ever properly fit your mouth which means that the gel, no matter how strong it is, can’t do its job effectively. And since the trays don’t fit your mouth, there is often be spillover of the whitening solution onto your gums and soft tissues. That is never a good thing, we can assure you.
Your Best Bet
The good news is that, at our Longmeadow, MA dental practice, we can offer a better way to tackle stained teeth.
Unlike OTC kits that work slowly, if at all, you can whiten your teeth in a flash with the professional Zoom! Whitening system that we use at Dores Dental.
Keep in mind that results do vary depending on the current color and condition of your teeth, but Zoom! can effectively whiten teeth up to 8 shades after one just one session.
First, we will check if your mouth is free of decay and disease. If it is, we will protect your eyes, gums and lips before applying the whitening gel.
Then professional-strength peroxide gel will be applied to your teeth and is activated by UV light to remove deep-seated stains and spots.
The trays that we use will be custom-fitted to your mouth so that there will be no runoff from the gel.
What’s more, the results will be stunning!
