Your smile is often the feature that others notice first. If your teeth have become discolored or stained, you may feel hesitant to express yourself with confidence. Dr. Timothy Messer of Southwind Dental Care provides both in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments in his Memphis office. Lightening your teeth can make your smile look healthy, rejuvenated, and more beautiful. Learn more or schedule a consultation by contacting us today.
Dr. Messer uses the Zoom!â in-office whitening system to dramatically lighten your smile in a single appointment, making this popular treatment a great option for patients with fast-paced lifestyles.
The procedure begins with the placement of a special guard to protect your gums and the soft tissues of your mouth, while isolating the teeth. Next, a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel will be applied to each tooth. A special light is then used to intensify the effect of the bleaching agent. After 15 minutes, the whitening gel is removed, and this process is repeated two more times. In just under an hour, you will see a noticeable difference in the brightness of your teeth.
Would you prefer to whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home? At Southwind Dental Care, we offer a number of different take-home teeth whitening options. Although there are countless over-the-counter whitening kits available in pharmacies, we can't overemphasize how important it is to choose a dentist-supervised treatment. Over-the-counter options make it difficult to apply the correct amount of bleaching gel, and too much or too little can result in uneven or unsuccessful results.
Whitening your teeth from home involves first visiting our office to be fitted for a customized whitening tray. Once the tray has been fabricated, Dr. Messer will bring you into the office for a consultation. He will provide you with detailed instructions for applying the gel.
One of the greatest benefits of teeth whitening is the way it can complement other restorative and cosmetic treatments. Some treatment combinations that deliver amazing results include:
If you are interested in a brighter, whiter smile, Dr. Messer and his Southwind Dental Care team can schedule a consultation to help establish which teeth whitening treatment will best suit your needs.
