Worried about discolored teeth? Don’t be. You can whiten your teeth at home using at-home whitening kits from your Scottsdale, AZ dentist, Dr. Mark J. Fleming. Teeth whitening can give you a set of sparkling pearly whites, the kind that brings out the best in your smile. Bright, white teeth are perfect for any event, most especially for creating that lasting first impression. Trust dentist supervised, at-home teeth whitening to give you the look you want, effectively removing stains and whitening your teeth by up to 7 shades lighter than before. The result is a stunning new smile that looks great on you.
What is At-Home Teeth Whitening?
At-home teeth whitening involves the use of custom trays infused with bleach. Dr. Fleming will give you the trays with instructions on how to use them. You will apply bleach to the tray independently, and then wear this bleach-infused tray for a prescribed amount of time each day. Most patients use their bleaching tray during sleep. However, this is not a requirement. The trays are transparent so you can choose to wear them during waking hours. With regular use, you will see a dramatic transformation with your smile.
Is At-Home Teeth Whitening Safe?
Visit any drugstore and you will see plenty of teeth whitening products for at home use. However, dentist supervised teeth whitening is safer and more effective than these over-the-counter whitening products. Dentists are specialists trained to provide you with safe and effective treatments. Dr. Fleming uses teeth whitening products of superb quality. He also monitors your response to the treatment. After your at-home teeth whitening session, you will be asked to return to Dr. Fleming to check on your progress and the results achieved. He may recommend in-office teeth whitening as another option to those who want to lighten the shade of their teeth.
How Do I Maintain the Brightness of my Teeth?
Dr. Fleming advises you to lower your intake of stain-causing foods and beverages. At-home teeth whitening is not a permanent treatment. However, it can last for 10 months or more with proper maintenance.
If you find it hard to avoid drinking beverages like coffee, tea, and red wine, Dr. Fleming recommends that you rinse your mouth with water as soon as you can. You can also choose the lesser evil, such as drinking white tea instead of black tea, or white wine rather than red.
You are also advised to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing your teeth after meals, and taking regular dental checkups. Visit your dentist regularly to be checked for signs of decay and gum disease, and to have your teeth evaluated for a follow-up whitening treatment
