Get a more confident and beautiful smile for the New Year!
The holidays are the perfect time to enjoy all those delicious treats that we wait all year long for. Unfortunately, our teeth aren’t quite as excited about these foods as we are; therefore, if you find that your teeth are looking a little lackluster after the holidays, our Onalaska, WI, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Todd Johnson, can give you a radiant smile to welcome 2020.
Undergoing Professional Teeth Whitening
All you have to do is walk down the oral care aisle of your grocery store and you’ll see there is no shortage of different ways to whiten your smile. However, none of these options are as effective or as safe as a professional whitening treatment.
While you may notice a slight improvement with continued whitening toothpaste usage or whitening strips, this can take weeks and results are usually minimal. By turning to our Onalaska, WI, dentist, he can ensure that you get the results you want. Our dentist offers both an in-office and at-home system to meet your needs.
How Whitening Works
If you want visible results as quickly as possible, then nothing will work better than in-office whitening treatment. During your first visit, our dentist will need to examine your smile and make sure that you are healthy enough for treatment. We will also need to determine if the stains you have will respond to whitening treatment. External stains, which are usually yellow or brown, respond the best to professional whitening.
Once your teeth are cleaned, your dentist will cover the gums and lips with a special device to protect them from the bleaching gel. Next, the gel is applied to the front surface of your teeth and often activated with a dental light. The gel is left on teeth anywhere from 10-15 minutes before being removed and reapplied. Three gel applications are usually performed in a single session.
