While home teeth whitening kits are affordable, they are simply no match for professional teeth whitening treatments provided in a dental office. While they are more expensive than at home treatments, the benefits to a patient’s smile far outweigh the monetary cost.
Professional Teeth Whitening vs. At Home Tooth Whitening
At-home dental bleaching kits can take up to four weeks to provide visible results for the patient, which is not a fastest way to whiten your teeth. Many people give up before they reach the desired effects because it takes so many applications to see results. A professional cosmetic dental bleaching treatment at Johnston Dental Care, located in Ruston and close to Monroe LA, can have a dramatic effect on the appearance of a patient’s smile.
Professional dental cosmetic teeth whitening helps patients show off their radiant new smile the same day of treatment, as it lightens the shade of the patient’s teeth in just an hour and a half. For best results, Johnston Dental Care’s power bleaching application takes three 1 ½ hour sessions over three consecutive days.
Teeth Whitening With Johnston Dental Care
Dr. Johnston and his skilled team in the Ruston and Monroe, LA area use professional grade lightening agents that are far more potent than the best teeth whitening products available over the counter, which don’t reach the depth of penetration to remove difficult stains and discoloration. Professional products used in professional dentist teeth whitening procedures give patients whiter teeth because they are far more powerful than at-home kits, but we also know how to prevent tooth sensitivity, which many store brand products can cause. In fact, the most common complaint people have when using tooth whitener at home is the pain caused by sensitivity. Most of the time, this discomfort is a result of improper application where the bleaching agents come in contact with the soft tissues of the mouth, such as the tongue or gums. Some patients may also leave the teeth whitening treatment on for too long, which can wear away enamel.
Teeth Whitening For A Better Smile
At Johnston Dental Care we have expert knowledge that is a result of years of training and the proper tools to do the job correctly. Applying whitening agents at home can be stressful for the patient because they can never be sure if they are doing harm to one of the most sensitive parts of their body. Professional application provides the patient with a stress-free, relaxing environment and painless process.
