There’s no question that a healthy, bright smile is one of the most prized possessions. Indeed, a bright smile is usually perceived to be a healthy smile. Many people desire to have the “healthy smile look,” and they often achieve this effect through teeth-whitening, a cosmetic dental treatment that lightens the discoloration of enamel and dentin.
Many dentists consider teeth-whitening to be the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. Under the proper supervision of competent dentists like those who serve Smiles Dental patients, whitening is perfectly safe.
Teeth-whitening is a great option for just about anyone. It is simple and effective. For most people, teeth-whitening can make a noticeable difference in the appearance of their teeth, even in as little as one treatment! Here at Smiles Dental, our professional teeth-whitening treatments employ a safe whitening gel that’s applied to the surface of your teeth. The gel lightens stains giving you a brighter smile.
Patients with reasonable expectations tend to be very pleased with the results. Whitening doesn’t affect synthetic materials, such as bonding or fillings; but in some cases, it has been known to improve the junction of a filling and the tooth structure.
Your gentle dentists at Smiles Dental can determine if you’re a candidate for teeth-whitening with an oral exam and a shade assessment, so feel free to call us at 503.877.1844 to schedule an appointment. We’re happy to help you.
