Kirkland, WA area patients considering ways to brighten their smile may not understand the differences between professional-grade whitening treatments available with a dentist versus over-the-counter whitening products. There are several benefits to professional treatments that patients will want to discuss with their dental provider. At Kingsgate Dental, Dr. Ann Kelley and her staff are committed to helping patients choose the solutions best for their smile, including the benefits of professional teeth whitening products.
While there are many varieties of over-the-counter whitening products in the local drugstore including strips, trays, and toothpaste, these often fall short of providing the results patients desire. Dr. Ann Kelley and her staff at Kingsgate Dental encourage patients to learn about the professional whitening kits available in her office. With whitening kits, patients will brighten their smile in the comfort of their own home. They visit the dentist to have a custom set of whitening trays made for the top and bottom arches. Once these have been made, patients will be sent home with instructions and professional-strength bleaching products that are used in the trays overnight. In about one to two weeks, patients will have a brighter smile that they can maintain with regular whitening.
Dr. Ann Kelley’s professional-strength solutions are:
Most patients who have no dental restorations such as crowns, veneers, and bridges who want to whiten their teeth and improve their self-confidence are urged to take the time to find out if they are a good candidate. Existing dental restorations are not changed with whitening products, so they may stand out if the existing teeth are brightened. In some cases, patients may whiten their smile and then have their dental restorations replaced to maintain a streamline appearance.
