Dalton, GA & Calhoun, GA
Discolored teeth is the number one complaint among people seeking to rejuvenate their smile. Although discoloration of teeth is a normal part of aging, it is accelerated by the daily cup of coffee in the morning or red wine with dinner. Nobody wants to look old, especially not prematurely old. Fortunately, teeth whitening can dramatically improve the appearance of smiles, turning back the clock on your appearance, helping you look younger and more energetic.
There are many teeth whitening options available, and at Beautiful Smiles by Design in Dalton, Georgia, we have three different teeth whitening methods available so that everyone can select the treatment that will give them the results they desire at a price they can afford.
Our Teeth Whitening Options
We offer three teeth whitening options for you to choose from:
These three options mean that cosmetic dentistry patients can decide which is the best option for them.
Picking Your Teeth Whitening Method
Sheer White is a stronger form of the common whitening strips. The advantage of this method is that no impressions are necessary, which are required for creating custom trays. You simply mold the whitening strip to your teeth when you apply it.
The disadvantage is that it can be hard to get the strip properly molded to your teeth, especially if you have crooked teeth. Where the strip overlaps your gums, you may experience irritation. Where the strip does not completely cover the teeth, you will see less whitening. And the strips only cover the central portion of your smile.
Nite White uses custom-created whitening trays to keep whitening compound in contact with your teeth. Simply put the compound in the tray, then put the tray in place when you go to bed. You’ll see significant results in just three nights, and with periodic use, you can get and maintain the best whitening results. The whitening compounds also contain fluoride, potassium nitrate, and amorphous calcium phosphate, which can reduce sensitivity and strengthen your teeth.
Zoom! teeth whitening is an in-office whitening procedure that allows you to dramatically whiten your teeth in less than an hour. Simply schedule an appointment and leave with a whiter, more vibrant smile. This is the best option if you need to get your teeth whiter for a special occasion.
And you can combine whitening methods to improve your results. Dr.Chikwava believes the best results are obtained with a combination of Zoom! and Nite White.
Teeth Whitening and Other Procedures
Although teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure, it is not necessarily for everyone. If you have other cosmetic dentistry complaints you want to correct, such as worn, cracked, or chipped teeth, perhaps porcelain veneers are a better option. Porcelain veneers can correct many cosmetic problems with one simple treatment.
Or perhaps teeth whitening is good for the majority of your smile, but must be combined with a dental crown or other restoration to give the best results. In this case, you should have your teeth whitened first, then have your other restorations matched to the color of your whitened teeth.
