Teeth Whitening

teeth-whitening-dave-grody-augusta-meA fresh, white smile can be achieved through teeth whitening. Most dark-colored teeth can be made to look lighter and some discolored spots on teeth may also respond to whitening. But with so many whitening toothpastes and strips on the market, along with home remedies, why should you choose a whitening system at the dentist’s office?

With all teeth whitening, the basic idea is the same – a chemical is applied to the teeth which acts to bleach or lighten them. Speed and effectiveness are the differences between what you can find in a drugstore and what Dr. Grody can provide. The quickest way to whiten teeth is to visit a dentist.

We recommend using bleaching trays. There are several advantages to this method:

  • First, using bleaching trays puts you in control. Sensitivity can develop, so you simply stop for a day or two and then continue when you are ready.
  • Second, if you want to achieve more whitening, you can continue using the bleaching trays longer. In case some of your teeth don’t lighten up as well as others, you can concentrate on those.
  • Third, bleached teeth need touch ups later. You can easily do that with your bleaching tray at home.

Bleaching trays, along with the bleaching agent, are easy to use. This is the least complicated way that teeth can be lightened. Dr. Grody provides you with everything you need and instructions on how to use them.
