in North Scottsdale, AZ
Do you look at pictures and notice that you always smile with only your lips to avoid showing your teeth? Maybe you subconsciously bring your hand to your mouth every time you smile because you don’t want others to see the condition of your teeth. These problems aren’t unique because many adults struggle with tooth discoloration. The common causes include:
- The normal aging process
- Frequent drinking of coffee, wine, or dark-colored foods
- Smoking tobacco products
- Frequently taking medications containing tetracycline
Some toothpaste companies and manufacturers of over-the-counter teeth whitening kits claim that these products can brighten the shade of your teeth by several times. Unfortunately, they often produce disappointing results. They can also be messy and difficult to use. Dr. Rick Dentistry offers teeth whitening in North Scottsdale,AZ that provides the real, long-lasting results you seek.
What to expect from in-office teeth whitening
Dr. Rick normally completes teeth whitening in one visit, although you may need additional appointments for severe staining. To start the procedure, he places a shield over your gums to prevent irritation. Next, he places a professional-grade bleaching agent directly on your teeth. Unlike drugstore remedies that only clean the top layer of tooth enamel, our bleaching agent reaches the deepest layers where discoloration begins. For the next step, he shines a specialized laser beam on the bleaching gel. This helps to permanently break up the stains. Lastly, Dr. Rick provides you with a fluoride treatment for strong teeth and gums.
Dazzle the world with your new smile
You can have a beautiful new smile in less than an hour. The next time someone takes a picture, you won’t be able to hold back your smile as you radiate confidence. The results of professional teeth whitening in North Scottsdale,AZ last several months and can be repeated any time you want a touch-up.
