If you’re looking for a quick way to transform your smile, then look no further than whitening. Professional teeth whitening is the fastest and most affordable way to get others to take notice of your pearly whites. At Dental Solutions of Mississippi, we make teeth whitening convenient by offering two options: in-office and at-home whitening systems.
This type of whitening provides the fastest results. First, we protect your gums, lips, and cheeks with a protective barrier. After that, we apply a professional-grade hydrogen peroxide gel, which will penetrate your enamel and make your teeth several shades lighter in about an hour.
If you’d prefer to whiten your teeth while spending time with your family, then at-home whitening is the perfect solution for you. For this type of whitening, we will take an impression of your teeth to create custom whitening trays. When your trays are ready, you will return to our office for your trays, whitening gel, and detailed instructions about how to achieve your desired look. Once you get home, your progress is up to you. Most people wear their trays for an hour at a time for several consecutive weeks.
Don’t Worry; It’s Safe
One of the most common misconceptions is that teeth whitening damages your enamel. This is simply not true! Perhaps people believe this because of the sensitivity that sometimes follows whitening treatment; this side effect is perfectly normal and will subside within a few days — without damaging your enamel or any other part of your teeth.
Make It Last
The results of your whitening treatment can last for several months if you take proper care of your teeth. In order to keep your smile a brilliant white, avoid food and drinks that stain, such as curries, mustard, red wine, coffee, teas, and sodas. Be sure to brush your teeth after every meal so highly pigmented foods and drinks don’t have a chance to rest on the surface of your teeth.
