If you’ve been thinking about how you would like to get your teeth whiter, Weston Family and Cosmetic Dentistry has the answer for you. We do cosmetic whitening through the use of lasers. The benefits of this method for teeth whitening is that it produces results quickly and effectively and is a safe, comfortable way for our Memphis dentist, Dr. Neil Weston, to help you get the bright smile that you want.
With our cosmetic whitening, you will find your teeth are noticeably whiter after your very first session. Compared with over the counter whitening products, at home bleaching, and standard dental office whitening, laser teeth whitening will give you remarkably whiter teeth right off the bat. How does it do that? Our Memphis dentist applies a translucent bleaching gel directly to your teeth. The laser then serves to activate the solution. This is a way of “super-charging” the crystals that are in the gel, causing them to absorb the energy from the laser and give you dramatically whiter teeth than could be done in similar time with other methods.
If your teeth are only mildly stained or discolored, you will most likely need fewer sessions than if your teeth have a higher degree of staining or discoloration. In fact, some people only need one treatment to reach their goal. But even if your teeth or yellow- or brown- you will still be able to benefit from the quick action of our cosmetic whitening. The lure of immediate change is a strong one and our Memphis dentist is pleased to be offering it to you.
As you move forward, it is important to be aware of the common causes of tooth staining and discoloration as this will help you to keep your newly whitened teeth in that condition for as long as possible. Two of the biggest culprits are tobacco (either from smoking or chewing) and beverages like tea, coffee, and red wine. It is a good idea to cut back on these habits or to cut them out entirely, if possible. Our Memphis dentist wants you to maintain the advantages of our cosmetic whitening. Though the effects are long lasting, they are not permanent. Re-treatment may be necessary in the future.
