ANTIOCH, Tenn., Aug. 19, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Center for Dental Health in Antioch, TN recommends that dental patients choose professional teeth whitening services to remove tough stains. According to dentist Dr. Jason White, professional services can remove coffee, wine and tobacco stains from teeth. In-office whitening is also stronger than at-home bleaching kits, delivering a smile that is several shades brighter. In addition to professional teeth whitening, Dr. White provides comprehensive cosmetic dentistry services, including crowns and caps.
Individuals who would like a brighter smile should consider professional teeth whitening. That's the message that dentist Dr. Jason White is sharing with Antioch dental patients.
"In-office whitening delivers superior results compared with at-home whitening kits," said Dr. White. "Many of our patients need fast results before a wedding or other major event. A single in-office whitening session can deliver these results. In comparison, at-home whitening kits are not as strong, so it can take several weeks or a month of usage to achieve the same results."
Dr. White also cautioned that over-the-counter kits or those purchased on the Internet are not made to fit a patient's mouth. This inexact fit can deliver uneven bleaching results. If a patient has gum disease or crowns, the bleaching kit can also aggravate oral health problems and create discoloration. It will not work on crowns or caps.
"Professional tooth whitening from a dentist is always recommended," said Dr. White. "I will first assess your oral health and check for periodontal problems. Next, I will create a custom-fit bleaching tray. This protects the teeth from over-bleaching, which could lead to tooth sensitivities. In-office treatments are safe, effective and reduce the risk for sensitive teeth."
According to Dr. White, in-office treatments also last longer than at-home whitening. At-home kits sometimes fail to cover the entire tooth, causing two-toned teeth. If the bleach strips cover gums, this can lead to gum irritation. The correct size and shape of whitening kits is essential to protecting the gums and delivering optimal whiteness.
"At-home treatment can deliver temporary brightening," said Dr. White. "However, at-home whitening results do not last long. Patients will need to consistently repeat the process to maintain results. Teeth whitening in our office is a smart investment that lasts longer than at-home treatments."
Teeth whitening is one of the many cosmetic dentistry services that Dr. White provides for his patients. Dr. White's practice, Center for Dental Health, also provides custom-fit crowns, caps and veneers, which are molded to cover existing teeth, hiding chips, cracks or other imperfections.
