Safe AT-Home Teeth WhiteninG
Teeth whitening is among the most popular smile enhancement procedures we offer here at Social Circle Dental. It is a convenient and economical way to give your smile a boost. In our office, there are no worries about harmful UV rays from activation lights or about dangerously harsh whiteners damaging your oral health. Dr. Jones is committed to providing healthy, safe biologic dental care, and that philosophy is applied to all treatments we offer. You won't find super-fast one-visit bleaching that leaves you with zingers and dehydrated enamel. Instead, we offer a gentle, safe, wonderfully effective at-home program.
Dr. Jones calls this the slow method, even though it only takes a couple of weeks to get great results. It is slow, as in gradual, and totally controlled by the patient. Your teeth will lighten a little bit every day until the desired results are achieved. You can stop at any time, call us if you have any problems, and touch-up as needed.
The first step is taking impressions of upper and lower arches. We will make your customized trays here in our lab. The bleaching trays keep the gel where it belongs – on your teeth, not on your gums. Custom trays are important because if it doesn't fit right, it is likely to leak.
We have several types of whitening gel available because every patient is different. Dr. Jones will choose the best one, depending on what type of stains you have, and what you are hoping to achieve. We will explain how to use the whitening system, and ask you to call us if you have any questions or problems. With our gentle system sensitivity rarely occurs, but if it does happen, just give us a call. We have some special gels, designed for just this situation.
Your brighter smile may last from several months to a year or more. This depends largely on your lifestyle and eating habits. Drinking through a straw, good oral hygiene, and regular dental visits help teeth stay bright. Things like tobacco, red wine, coffee, and tea will make your teeth darken faster. With our convenient, gentle system, you can keep your trays, and some gel on hand. Whenever your teeth start looking dingy, you can do a touch-up without even coming to the office.
If you want to see a healthy, sparkling white smile in the mirror every morning, call Social Circle Dental at (770) 464-1900 and schedule an appointment with Dr. Jones.
