Have you been thinking about having your teeth whitened professionally? If so, it is not surprising, since cosmetic tooth whitening has become one of the most popular cosmetic dental services requested at our practice today. It used to be the teeth whitening was reserved for very special occasions or for people in the public eye. However, today teeth whitening is a very common cosmetic dental service that greatly enhances a patient’s smile. If you would like to learn more about the teeth whitening options offered at our office, you will want to see our dentist in Willoughby at Abriani Smiles.
At our dental practice, our expert and highly trained dentist is Dr. Danute (“Donna”) Abriani. Dr. Abriani has been providing exemplary dental services to patients in our Lake County area for over 30 years. More and more, we are finding that patients are coming to our practice requesting information about having their teeth whitened. Teeth whitening is a great way for patients to make a dramatic change to their smile without having to spend a lot of money. At our practice we are happy to be able to offer in-office teeth whitening, or take-home custom tray whitening. Our dentist will want to meet with you first to review your smile, and to see if there any special situations that will need attention before the tooth whitening procedure is decided upon. For example, if you have tooth-colored fillings in front teeth, we will need to come up with a plan on how to address the situation before the tooth whitening is performed. Tooth whitening will only affect natural tooth enamel, but it will have no effect on porcelain or composite materials in the mouth. Our dentist in Willoughby will be able to work with you to come up with a plan so that you will be able to enjoy the benefits of tooth whitening, and still present a uniform-colored smile.
For patients who want quick and dramatic results, we generally recommend our in-office teeth whitening system. This system generally takes about one hour in our dentist’s chair. During this teeth whitening procedure, teeth can be whitened anywhere between about three and seven shades, depending on the patient’s individual situation. We are also able to provide patients with take-home custom tray whitening kits. These kits work at a slower pace; it will take the patient several days or weeks to achieve their optimal results. Our dentist will be happy to discuss all the details about the teeth whitening systems, as well as which will work best in your particular case.
