As we get older, our enamel starts to get thinner, exposing the yellower dentin layer underneath. Lifestyle choices also can impact the color of our teeth. If you drink a lot of coffee or tea, chances are your teeth are stained from it. Tobacco use can also cause teeth to go yellow. At Coastal Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, Dr. Cappy Sinclair offers professional teeth whitening to get you back a gleaming white smile.
At our office, we offer quick results with in-office teeth whitening and more gradual results that you can get in the comfort of your own home. Based on your preferences and the opinion of the dentist, one or a combination of these methods will be used to whiten your smile. We want to make sure that you get the best results possible.
There are many options available in store and online that promise to whiten teeth just as good as professional whitening. This is likely untrue because whitening performed in a dentist office has a higher concentration of bleaching material. This can only be used in a professional setting and is the reason you can attain whiter teeth in just one visit.
Over the counter options rely on you to apply the whitening agent. You will likely get better results and a more even distribution by having an experienced dentist apply the bleach. Also, with a dentist present, there is little chance of damaging your teeth or gums. Even though there are cheaper options available, it is best to have an experienced dentist whiten your teeth for safety reasons and better results.
