Professional Teeth Whitening

 
When you use tooth whitening products from a pharmacy or supermarket, there’s no guarantee that you’ll get the results that you’re looking for. Some products could also irritate your gums if they aren’t used properly. The better option is to have a professional take care of the job. Learn about the advantages of teeth whitening by a Lincoln Park and Lakeview, IL dentist who is experienced in cosmetic dentistry, like Dr. Jeffrey Feffer.

Why People Want Whiter Teeth

Professional tooth whitening is an important cosmetic procedure offered by dentists. It’s important because you can have the straightest and most perfectly shaped smile, but it doesn’t matter much if your teeth are yellow or discolored. A survey by the American Association of Orthodontists found that close to 90 percent of patients ask their dentists about in-office tooth whitening, which is also called “chairside bleaching.”

What to Expect at a Whitening Appointment

The majority of the time you spend at your professional whitening appointment will be spent laying back and relaxing. After protecting your gums, your Lincoln Park and Lakeview dentist will gently apply a bleaching gel to the surface of your teeth and then use a laser curing light tool to activate the gel. After you relax for about an hour, the dentist will remove the gel and reveal your new smile.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

There are two categories of benefits of having your teeth whitened professionally—immediate and overall. The immediate benefits include brightening up your appearance in one relatively short appointment by up to eight shades. If you try other whitening solutions, like over the counter products, you will have to wait much longer for results. The overall benefits of having your teeth whitened by a dentist include:

  • Increased self-confidence.
  • Younger appearance (people with whiter teeth are generally perceived as younger).
  • Better social experience (people tend to trust people who have nice smiles more).
