Whitening Should Be A Guided Process

Whitening Should Be A Guided Process

Welcome back to our Florida dental blog.

At Clearwater Dental Associates, we strive to provide comprehensive and convenient dental solutions for your entire family’s oral health needs.

That’s why our office on Druid Road handles everything from general preventative dental care to implant surgery.

Through our wide range of available cosmetic procedures, we aim to help our patients feel better about the look of their smiles.

We have found that one of the things that folks are most self-conscious about here in Florida is the color of their teeth.

That should not surprise anyone.

Having yellowed or stained teeth is kind of embarrassing, especially if you are an active professional.

In the business world, if you are less inclined to smile, that can easily be interpreted the wrong way.

Fortunately, we have a great whitening solution for you at Clearwater Dental Associates!

The Need Is Great

Do you find it hard to make it through the morning without two cups of coffee?

Maybe you prefer a soda at lunch?

Or a spot of tea in the afternoon?

How about a glass of red wine with dinner?

If you enjoy any or all of these things, then you are certainly in good company.

The problem is that all of these beverages, along with a whole host of foods, will badly stain your teeth over time.

That’s why if you look around the supermarket you will see an abundance of “whitening” toothpastes and over-the-counter kits aimed at reversing the marks left by life’s simple pleasures.

Beware, or at least be wary, of the promises such products make.

The only way to significantly improve the color of your teeth is to have a whitening process that is guided by your dentist.

Over-The-Counter Solutions Are A Problem

Over the counter whitening kits are slow to work, that is one problem.

They can take months to get you the results that we can achieve quickly here with our dentist-guided treatments (that you apply in the convenience of your own home).

And the sad fact is that sometimes these OTC solutions just don’t work at all.

What’s more, such OTC kits can pose a real health hazard.

That’s because they are manufactured with one-size-fits-all trays, as opposed to the custom-made trays that we create here at Clearwater Dental Associates.

These mass-produced and ill-fitting trays can expose your gums to harmful whitening products that are fine for your teeth but damaging to your soft tissues.

Clearwater Dental Associates Offer A Better Solution

A benefit of having office-guided teeth whitening is that it will allow you to use custom whitening trays.

We will craft these trays from impressions of your own teeth, so you can trust that they are going to be an exact fit in your mouth.

This means that throughout the process the whitening solution is staying exactly where it needs to be and won’t be able to harm your gums, plus it will do a better job on the task at hand.

After we make the initial impressions, we will have you come back to our office only once to pick up your trays along with enough whitening gel to use over the course of your treatment.

Then, at home, you’ll simply wear your custom fit ZOOM! trays for one to two weeks, and you’ll get the kind of results that are sure to make you smile.
