Brightening Hallsville smiles with professional tooth bleaching
Teeth whitening is one of the most requested cosmetic dental procedures by residents of Hallsville and other communities across the country. The popularity of this service is not surprising, as it is fast, affordable, and involves no tooth alteration. However, the vast array of bleaching options can be overwhelming. Don’t worry; Dr. Clint Bruyere and his dedicated team can help you choose the best way to make your smile sparkle.
Who is a good candidate?
When you visit the office, we will begin with a comprehensive oral evaluation. We will determine if teeth whitening is right for you, and discuss what system meets your needs best. Although most patients are good candidates, teeth whitening is not recommended for pregnant women. Additionally, dental materials do not respond to bleaching. Therefore, if you have visible crowns, veneers, or fillings that match your teeth right now, they will appear dark after the surrounding tooth enamel is whitened. In these situations, Dr. Bruyere can replace your old, discolored dental work with brand new restorations that match your brightest smile.
If you have significant oral health problems, such as untreated cavities, those will need to be addressed. Whitening products are formulated to be safe for tooth enamel, but if they contact an exposed nerve, the experience can be painful. This is one of the reasons that the ADA (American Dental Association) highly recommends seeing a dental professional before beginning any whitening treatment, even over the counter products.
Choosing the best method
The concentration of retail products is limited by law, because these formulas are often used without professional supervision or a prerequisite check-up. The active ingredients in more professional teeth whitening formulas are over five times as strong as those sold in stores. This explains why so many people are disappointed in the results of drugstore whiteners.
We offer several excellent options in professional whitening:
- In-office is the fastest way to achieve dramatic improvement in the appearance of your smile.
- Custom made trays can deliver the power and safety of professional whitening in the comfort of your own home.
- The complete KöR deep bleaching system is typically considered the most powerful solution available, and it is the best choice for patients with stubborn stains or especially dark teeth.
