When might a Farragut area dentist recommend teeth whitening treatments?
A beautiful smile may be just a treatment away! Dr. Foncea of Sequoyah Dental Arts is happy to provide his patients with methods of improving their smiles that are fast, easy, and attainable. One such method of rejuvenating the smile is teeth whitening.
Teeth whitening is also known as teeth bleaching. Whitening the smile is done one of two ways: at home with custom whitening trays or in the office with a one-hour whitening session. Both are affordable and effective ways of transforming a dull, discolored smile into a brilliant, dazzling one!
Home whitening trays are custom made with impressions of the dental arch in the office of Dr. Foncea. Patients are sent home with the trays and whitening gel to use with them, wearing them for approximately thirty minutes a day for several weeks. Patients can also come into the office and rest in the dental chair while one-hour whitening is administered. This treatment allows patients to leave the dentist’s office with a brilliant smile up to eight shades whiter in one sitting.
Dr. Foncea of the Farragut area may suggest teeth whitening for patients who have stained or discolored teeth. These patients may want to improve the way they look but may have been unhappy with over-the-counter whitening treatments. Thankfully, the teeth whitening solutions available through Sequoyah Dental Arts are professional-grade whitening products that are amazingly effective at providing optimum results.
Dr. Foncea may not recommend patients with restorations undergo teeth whitening. Porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, and other dental restorations do not respond to the teeth whitening treatments, and therefore will stand out in a negative way after the whitening sessions are completed. Unless a patient is considering replacing his or her restorations with those that match the newly whitened smile, he or she is often advised to consider alternative solutions.
Teeth whitening can provide a stunning smile for patients of all ages. Whether you are considering rejuvenating your smile for an upcoming class reunion, a wedding, or you want to improve the color and shade of your natural teeth for long-term beauty, Dr. Foncea of the Farragut area can help.
