If you’re looking for a brighter, whiter smile in as little as one hour, then it’s time to take a look at professional teeth whitening in Bradford, ON instead of spending countless time waiting – and possibly even “hoping” — for an over-the-counter product to work.
While it’s true that store purchased whitening pastes and gels have come a long way in recent years, there is still no substitute for the quick results that can be yours when you trust your smile to professional teeth whitening in Bradford.
A good analogy to use when comparing at-home teeth whitening versus professional teeth whitening is to consider professional hair coloring products to those which can be purchased off the shelf.
When you visit a salon, you will have a professionally trained color specialist by your side the entire time to monitor not only the level of color that’s being transformed in your hair, but the health of your hair too. This same level of expertise is needed to monitor the health of your teeth, as well!
Most everyone has heard the horror stories about trying to color their hair at home. Even if it hasn’t happened to you personally, chances are you know someone that has experienced shocking disappointment.
They either ended up with a color that didn’t come close to the shade that was promised on the box, or their hair suffered extreme damage from the improper application and time management of the product’s harsh chemicals.
Just as the improper use of hair coloring products can damage the health of your hair’s cuticle, improper use of teeth whitening products can damage the health of your teeth’s enamel. When that happens, it opens the door for other oral health conditions to surface – some of which may take extensive treatment to reverse — similar to repairing dry, damaged, hair which can take years to correct.
Some of the most common side effects from weakened tooth enamel include long-term tooth sensitivity, an increased propensity for staining and decay, and even an increased risk for breakage and fracturing – all of which are costly to repair.
For a lot of people who have fallen prey to the perils of at-home hair coloring, the damage can be remedied with a deep-conditioning or color-correction treatment from a salon.
Unfortunately for those individuals who’ve fallen prey to damaged teeth from the improper use of over-the-counter teeth whitening products, the correction may not be quite as simple for one simple reason – tooth enamel can not be replicated once it has been destroyed.
Fortunately, there are procedures such as dental bonding and dental crowns that can be performed to treat enamel-damaged teeth; but rather than worrying about the expense of those procedures, doesn’t it just make more sense to entrust your smile to a professional from the beginning?
Although we have helped countless patients achieve a whiter and more youthful smile with the professional teeth whitening services we provide in our Bradford, ON dentist office, there is another option that you may want to consider for a smile brightener that does not involve the use of bleaching materials – and that’s the use of dental veneers.
Although certain veneer materials are still prone to staining, they can be more resilient than damaged tooth enamel. Also, dental veneers are used as a form of cosmetic dentistry to help correct minor smile flaws such as misshapen teeth. For these reasons, many patients who are looking for results that go beyond brightening alone have chosen to discuss dental veneers with their dentist when considering smile makeover options.
