Which Knoxville area patients are candidates for professional teeth bleaching?
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment offered by many Knoxville area dentists as an alternative to ineffectual over-the-counter whitening methods. Patients who have tried their local drugstore strips and trays are often disappointed in the results and turn to a professional for professional teeth bleaching. Many patients want quality whitening solutions to address dull, discolored teeth and long-term staining that cannot be addressed by any other method. Most want a brighter, more dazzling smile to feel more confident and attractive, and to facilitate both their business and personal relationships.
Dr. Pablo Foncea of Sequoyah Dental Arts utilizes two primary methods of whitening through his practice, take-home whitening kits, and in-office power bleaching. Patients who want fast, no-fuss results can have in-office power bleaching done in the practice in just one hour. Teeth eight shades whiter can be achieved with this treatment, all while patients relax in the dental chair. Patients who want more control over their whitening and want to achieve results over time can consider take-home whitening trays. Take-home trays are easy to use and provide much more effective results than the whitening trays available over-the-counter. This is because Dr. Pablo Foncea creates the trays with custom impressions of the teeth for a precise fit and much better function. Patients wear their whitening gel for a specific period every day for results that are noticeable within one week!
Dr. Pablo Foncea of Knoxville has been providing professional teeth bleaching for patients for over 14 years. He starts with a professional cleaning to remove plaque and tartar from the enamel, which ensures better results, and then educates patients on the procedure of their choice. He also discusses with them during the initial consultation appointment whether they are appropriate candidates for professional whitening. Most patients are able to undergo this treatment, but those with restorations such as veneers, crowns, or bridges must understand that their restorations will not whiten with their natural teeth and may need to be replaced for a seamless smile after whitening.
