Teeth Whitening Treatments
Years of coffee, wine, and smoking can take a toll on the appearance of the natural teeth. Enamel is porous and can soak up stains and discoloration, which can negatively affect the coloring of the teeth. Dr. Sater of the Mansfield, TX area can help patients by providing professional teeth whitening treatments.
Although some patients turn to their local drugstore for whitening solutions, many of these provide little—if any—results. Patients are often disappointed with the minimal whitening effect these have on their smile and are interested in finding out how professional teeth whitening treatments compare. Since professional-grade products are much stronger and provide longer-lasting results, they are often the treatment of choice for patients serious about whitening their smile.
Dr. Sater provides his patients with a few different options when it comes to achieving that dazzling new smile. There are two methods primarily considered including in-office power bleaching and take-home whitening trays. In-office power bleaching allows patients to enjoy remarkably whiter smiles in approximately one hour with special whitening solution. This treatment is chosen for patients with busy lifestyles or for those who want to look and feel their best at an upcoming event. The other treatment, take-home whitening trays, can be used in the privacy of a patient’s home to whiten the teeth gradually. These are made with custom trays and patients are provided with special peroxide gel to use in these trays approximately one hour a day for results in just a few weeks. This is a more economical solution and allows patients to have much more control over their results.
In some cases, Dr. Sater may suggest patients consider a combination of both treatments. Patients can enjoy the quick boost of whitening with an in-office procedure and then whiten at home for dramatic results. Patients can always visit Dr. Sater for more whitening gel to continually boost their smile’s appearance and allow them to control the results they achieve over time.
