The Basics: Teeth Whitening

Posted .

According to many studies, nearly 97% of all adults believe a nice smile makes a person more attractive. Furthermore, nearly three-fourths of all people believe that an unattractive smile will actually hurt your chances for success in your career. We do tend to place a great importance on the appearance of our teeth. If your teeth could use a little improvement, you may want to consider whitening them.

Because of the fact that there is a wide variety of whitening products on the market, it may be hard to know which one to choose. Not all of them do everything they claim, and not all of them may be suitable for you. If you use an over-the-counter product incorrectly, you could end up damaging your teeth and gums. Before you purchase or use a product, speak with our dentist, Dr. Kevin M. Altieri about which products are safe and how to properly use them. For the best results, visit our office for a professional tooth whitening treatment.

With a single in-office whitening treatment, it is possible to improve the color of your smile by up to ten shades. The products used for professional whitening treatments are safe and reliable. The whitening trays are contoured to fit your dental profile to ensure that you receive the maximum benefit from your treatment. For additional treatments, our dentist can provide you with at-home kits to continue to whiten your teeth on your own schedule.

Do you have any additional questions or concerns about teeth whitening treatments? If so, you are welcome to stop by our office.
