Why Consider Professional Teeth Whitening Services?

A bright and confident smile is something that everyone desires. However, many factors can contribute to stained or discolored teeth, including age, diet, lifestyle habits, and certain medications. Fortunately, modern dentistry offers a variety of teeth whitening services that can help to restore a bright, beautiful smile.

At Cape Dental Care, we offer professional teeth whitening services that are safe, effective, and tailored to each patient’s unique needs. Here are some of the benefits of professional teeth whitening, as well as an overview of our services.

The Source Matters

Before talking about the different reasons that you may want to consider whitening services, it may be helpful to understand what the root cause is. The American Dental Association, tooth discoloration is “…any change in the color or translucency of a tooth, as well as discoloration in multiple teeth or the entire dentition.” There are two main classifications of discoloration: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains are often associated with environmental or individual factors such as smoking, highly pigmented foods, beverages like coffee or cola or exposure to some metals. Oral hygiene is also a factor. Intrinsic stains can be, among other things, the result of genetics, aging, some medications or even amalgam restorations.

Safer and More Effective

While there are many over-the-counter teeth whitening products available, professional teeth whitening offers a number of benefits over at-home solutions. First and foremost, professional teeth whitening is safer and more effective than over-the-counter products. This is because professional whitening solutions are stronger and more concentrated than what is available over the counter, and they are applied under the supervision of a dental professional.

Faster and More Convenient

Professional teeth whitening is also more convenient and comfortable than at-home treatments. At Cape Dental Care, we offer in-office teeth whitening that can be completed in just one visit. This means that you can achieve a bright, beautiful smile in a single appointment, without the need for multiple at-home treatments. Also, most of our patients report no tooth or gum sensitivity during or after their whitening

More Personalization

Finally, professional teeth whitening is more personalized than at-home treatments. Remember, not all discoloration is the same. Our dental professionals will evaluate your individual needs and develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your unique situation. We can also choose the most complementary shade to blend more natural looking than the one-size-fits-all results of home kits. This also means that you can achieve the results you desire without risking damaging your teeth or gums.
