Lakewood patients boost their smiles with teeth whitening
Your smile is a valuable and beautiful asset in your business and personal environments. A confident smile bespeaks confidence, assurance, affection and happiness. A study conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry indicates that nearly 100 percent of people polled thought that an attractive smile was very important. Almost 75 percent believed that an unappealing smile could hamper business success.
The importance of having a winning smile can also be evidenced by the number of products on the market today, all claiming to whiten teeth several shades whiter. Over the counter toothpastes, stick on strips, pens, and gels may advertise dramatic results but, sometimes, these products may be ineffective, and certain types can cause more harm than good. Whitening products that use abrasive agents can irritate gums and wear down enamel.
The concept of bleaching teeth developed decades ago, when dentists realized that peroxide that had been used as an antiseptic to treat gums was also whitening patients’ teeth. Since the commercialization of bleaching products, teeth whitening has become a popular dental treatment. In fact, it has become the most requested service at dental practices. Whether your teeth are discolored due to age, heredity, medications, tobacco use, or certain beverages or foods, teeth whitening can make you look younger and more vibrant.
The professional team at South Lakewood Dental, serving patients from Lakewood, Wheat Ridge, and surrounding neighborhoods, offers our patients a safe, affordable and effective procedure to brighten their smiles. Our convenient, custom-made trays and professional grade gel allow patients to whiten their teeth as they have time, in the comfort of home.
Teeth whitening under the supervision of an experienced dentist and staff ensures that any issues such as sensitivity are addressed. Unlike over-the-counter trays, our recommended whitening system provides trays that will stay in place and prevent the gel from leaking onto gum tissue and causing irritation.
