Teeth whitening can be a quick, easy and economical way to make over your smile for that upcoming special occasion or self confidence boost you desire. A bright, white smile can have an affect on both professional and social aspects of your life and provide a more youthful appearance.
Dr. King offers a professional take home teeth whitening system in her Buckhead dentist office that will provide results far superior to over the counter options widely available today.
Teeth Whitening: What To Expect
Dr. King is an experienced cosmetic dentist and will meet with you to discuss your personal cosmetic goals and concerns to determine if teeth whitening is right for you. There are a variety of factors that can stain or darken the teeth, sometimes causing embarrassment abut your natural smile:
- Aging- the teeth naturally darken as we age
- Tobacco use and smoking
- Dark foods and beverages, especially coffee, tea and red wine
- Certain medical conditions
- Tetracycline and other medications
Professional teeth whitening can provide dramatic, lasting results for most patients and Dr. King will discuss expected results and all aspects of your take home treatment process.
Your take home kit will include custom fit bleaching trays that will be made from impressions taken of your teeth in our dentist office. These custom bleaching trays will provide consistency of results without irritating the gums and other soft tissues of the mouth.
When you come to our office to pick up your bleaching trays, you will receive personalized instructions on when and for how long to wear the trays each day to achieve the desired result. Your final result can be maintained with periodic touch ups using your custom trays and additional bleaching product available in our Buckhead dentist office.
To achieve and maintain the optimal whitening result, reduce or eliminate tobacco use, smoking and consumption of dark beverages such as red wine and coffee. Rinsing the mouth after eating or drinking and practicing good oral hygiene is also important.
Teeth Whitening Alternatives
For patients with staining that is not considered treatable with professional teeth whitening, Dr. King offers alternative cosmetic dental treatments that can brighten your smile permanently and also improve overall dental health:
- Dental veneers: porcelain veneers or mini prep laminate veneers can change the color and shape of your teeth for a smile makeover that will last for years
- Dental crowns: a custom made dental crown can strengthen a tooth that is damaged, misshapen or discolored
