Before And After
Teeth whitening procedures are used to brighten the appearance of a patient’s smile. According to the American Dental Association, teeth whitening procedures have become one of the most popular aesthetic dental treatments among patients throughout the country. Here at Eicon Dental, we provide professional teeth whitening services that can be performed in the office or prescribed for take-home use by a patient. In comparison to over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments, professional whitening uses stronger whitening agents that deliver faster and more effective results.
Did you know…
that your teeth will darken naturally as you age? Certain foods, beverages, medications and habits may also contribute to a darker, stained, or yellowed smile. But, it is possible to reverse years of stains in a single professional whitening session and sustain those results for years with proper maintenance. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, professional whitening is best maintained by a combination of good at home oral care habits and take-home whitening treatments as recommended by your dentist.
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR TEETH WHITENING?
You may be a candidate for a professional whitening if you are experiencing darkened or discolored teeth, but otherwise have healthy teeth and healthy gums. Schedule a consultation to find out which tooth whitening option is right for you.
WHAT TYPE OF POST-TREATMENT CARE IS REQUIRED AFTER HAVING MY TEETH WHITENED?
It is normal to experience some tooth sensitivity following a professional whitening treatment. You may be instructed to avoid consuming highly pigmented beverages for at least 1 week to prevent the teeth from becoming stained again. Examples include tea, coffee and wine. Depending on your results and long-term teeth whitening goals, you may also be sent home from your procedure with an at-home whitening kit for later use.
