Elk Grove Tooth Whitening
The stores are full of products promising to whiten and brighten your teeth. Abrasive toothpastes, hydrogen peroxide mouthwashes, gels and tooth whitening strips all promise to take your teeth to a new level of dental perfection — teeth so white you’ll need sunglasses to look in a mirror. Do they work as promised? If they did, there would probably be more people walking around with smiles just like those on the packages. And worse than leaving yellowed or dull teeth, many over-the-counter whitening products damage your teeth by wearing away tooth enamel or irritating your gums with ill-fitting, “one size doesn’t really fit all” trays.
If you want whiter teeth, trust the professional Elk Grove dentists at the Case Dental Group. First, your teeth will be examined to see if you are a good candidate for tooth whitening. If your teeth and gums are healthy, yet you have yellow or stained teeth, you’re a good fit for tooth whitening. Because tooth color is partly from food choices such as coffee and tea, and partly decided by genetics, our staff will help you choose a reasonable shade of white for your smile and enamel. If your stains or discolorations were caused by medications or damage to your tooth, our staff will be honest about your chances with a whitening procedure and may steer you towards veneers that will bring the results you want without the disappointment and expense of failed OTC products.
Our Elk Grove dentists provide two different forms of tooth whitening. First, you can work with customized take-home trays that leave you in charge of the exact shade of white you want to achieve. You may use these in conjunction with the other form of whitening offered by our dentists, an in-office whitening procedure that significantly whitens your teeth in just one hour. Since such rapid whitening may sensitize your tooth enamel, we always treat the teeth before your departure to prevent this occasional side effect of tooth whitening. With either of these methods, we guarantee that you will finish your procedure pleased with the results and delighted with your bright smile.
Don’t trust over the counter promises that underdeliver. Trust “sure thing” tooth whitening from the Case Dental Group!
