Why Consider Teeth Whitening?

Why Mentor, OH area patients might choose to have teeth whitening performed in a dental office


What makes a beautiful smile? Is it straight, aligned teeth? A clean and perfect gum line? Or is it bright, brilliant enamel? For most patients, the number one priority in achieving a more beautiful smile is whitening the teeth. Our teeth are exposed to a lot of elements that can negatively detract from its natural brightness. The food we eat and the beverages we drink can dull the enamel and cause it to look dull and yellow. Some of us are genetically predisposed to having darker teeth than others. Even medications such as tetracycline can cause unwanted staining on the teeth and impact the overall look. When patients visit Erieview Dental of Mentor, OH asking about cosmetic procedures, the most recommended treatment is that of professional teeth whitening.

Whitening the teeth is completely safe. It is done with FDA-approved bleaching gels that can provide amazing results in a short period of time. While there are many drugstores that offer over-the-counter whitening products, many of these fall short of providing noticeable results. In fact, many of our patients come into our practice having already tried these methods and feel as though they have been throwing their money away. These strips, toothpastes, trays, and other methodologies of brightening the smile are often low-cost but poor improvements. This is when many patients in the community turn to a dental professional for thorough, effective alternatives. Our practice offers two methods of whitening including our in-office power bleaching and our professional-grade, custom-made whitening trays. Patients seeking same day results may benefit from our in-office services while the take-home trays often provide gradual improvements over the course of several weeks.
