What is Tooth Whitening?
As we age, it’s normal to experience discoloration. Not only does the yellow dentin in teeth start to show through as teeth wear, but staining from the foods and beverages we consume, or from activities like tobacco use, can cause noticeable discoloration. If you want to regain a youthful appearance, one of the easiest ways is with teeth whitening in Memphis.
This easy and affordable at-home treatment involves the use of custom-made dental trays that you can wear in the comfort of your own home, at your convenience. When you visit Wohrman Dental Group, we’ll take impressions to create your custom whitening trays, which you’ll receive during a second visit, along with professional bleaching gel that is safe and effective.
Each day for up to two weeks, you’ll wear the trays for about 15-20 minutes to achieve your desired level of whitening. If you experience sensitivity to the bleaching solution, you can reduce daily wear time, but you may have to continue treatment longer to achieve desired results. Trays can be worn top and bottom to whiten teeth up to six shades or more.
While you can try over-the-counter products like bleaching strips, gels, toothpastes, and more, these products are only capable of whitening teeth 1-2 shades at most, and you may have to use them constantly to maintain these minimal results. With professional tooth whitening Memphis from the experts at Wohrman Dental Group, you’ll not only achieve striking results in just a couple of weeks, but you can keep your custom trays for touch-ups down the line, saving money should you choose to whiten teeth again.
Benefits of Tooth Whitening in Memphis
We can’t stop the aging process, much as we might like to, but there are all kinds of ways to look as young as we feel. One of the best ways to maintain a youthful appearance and boost your confidence is with a radiant, white smile. With proper teeth whitening in Memphis from the professionals at Wohrman Dental Group, you can restore your bright smile and take years off your appearance.
Even if you practice proper dental care with daily brushing and flossing, as well as regular dental visits for cleaning and examination, your teeth are going to wear over time, revealing dentin that causes your teeth to look yellow, and this can be aging. In addition, many adults enjoy foods and beverages like coffee, tea, soda, and wine that can stain teeth. Or you may use tobacco products that cause significant discoloration.
While you can always give up bad habits, you still have to deal with the tooth discoloration that causes you to hide your smile. Teeth whitening is an ideal solution for extrinsic (surface) staining that cannot be corrected with brushing or over-the-counter whitening treatments. If you want a bright, white smile that displays your friendly personality, the qualified team at Wohrman Dental Group has the perfect solution.
