Kirkland area dentist describes the benefits of professional teeth whitening
Dr. Ann Kelley and the staff of Kingsgate Dental believe patients should have access to quality care for their smiles. Not only should patients visit their dentist regularly for general dentistry concerns such as examinations, x-rays, cleanings, and fillings, but they are encouraged to ask their dentist about ways of enhancing their smiles. This includes whitening the teeth with professional treatments. Kirkland area patients are excited to learn more about the teeth whitening options available to them at Kingsgate Dental.
Teeth best whitening option
While some dental practices offer in-house whitening for same-day results, it has been found that these do not last as long and can cause patients to experience extreme sensitivity following their procedures. Instead, Dr. Ann Kelley encourages patients to learn more about take-home whitening kits. These include custom-made whitening trays that are fabricated using impressions of the teeth. The trays are then sent home with patients along with professional-strength whitening gels that are applied into the trays and worn over the dental arch for a specific period of time each day. Dr. Ann Kelley finds that this method not only reduces and sometimes eliminates sensitivity experienced with other methods, but provides longer lasting whitening. Additionally, patients keep the trays and can whiten whenever they choose to touch up the results.
Is it safe?
The whitening gels used in our practice are stronger than those available over-the-counter, but are safe for personal use with the guidance of a dental professional. The results are long-lasting and patients love the ability to whiten as they need to without using drugstore products that fail to provide satisfactory results.
Our whitening products often exceed the expectations of our patients. Speak with our team to learn more about this option and whether it is appropriate for you. Contact Dr. Ann Kelley of Kingsgate Dental today at (425) 385-0080 to make an appointment.
