Thinking about teeth whitening?
Most people in the Carson City area would love to have whiter, younger-looking teeth, and the good news is that Advanced Dentistry by Design can help! Despite the fact that we brush, floss, rinse, and go for our regular dental checkups, years of wear and tear can still take their toll. Whether it’s routine exposure to coffee or tea, tobacco, or staining foods like blueberry or cherry pie, our teeth can probably use some TLC to bring back that brilliant luster of our youth.
Teeth Whitening Options
Options to whiten your smile seem endless. A quick browse through the local pharmacy will reveal lots of over-the-counter teeth whitening options: whitening toothpastes, mouthwashes, floss, strips, gels, and trays with a range of prices. Many of these products offer a guarantee: results similar to professional, dental-office whitening in just minutes a day over the course of several days or a couple of weeks, but at a fraction of the cost of a professional whitening session. The problem is that these options don’t take into account that every patient’s whitening needs or challenges are not the same.
A beautiful smile is an important asset
Not only do white teeth enhance your smile, but they make you feel more confident about your appearance. You’ll actually look younger and feel better in just 20 minutes! You deserve to have a beautiful and exceptional smile. We can help you achieve a whiter smile and a more confident you.
Sinsational Smile uses a fast and effective technology with a patented pre-filled silicone tray. This allows the jaw to remain relaxed and the person comfortable throughout the 20 minute procedure. This procedure includes the use of an LED accelerating light that helps to activate the gel’s whitening ingredients at a faster rate, resulting in a brighter smile and whiter teeth in less time. As part of your procedure, you’ll also receive a take-home maintenance pen to further extend your new brighter smile!
For those who would prefer to trust an expert with their teeth, a trip to Advanced Dentistry by Design is in order for an in-office whitening experience. Our dentists also offer bleaching options to fit any lifestyle or need. Our teeth whitening procedures are all provided at professional level strengths and applications that ensure our patients achieve the smile they want.
Teeth Whitening F.A.Q.s
- How long does whitening last?
If you don’t use regularly, bleaching will usually fade over time. You can use the Sinsational Smile pen for maintenance between dental visits. Otherwise we recommend bleaching every 6 months.
- Will I have to bleach for the rest of my life?
For those over the age of 27 who want to maintain the brilliance of their teeth, the answer is probably yes.
- How often should I touch up?
This can vary depending on age and dietary habits as well. As we age, our teeth will naturally begin to yellow and certain foods and drinks also stain teeth. We recommend a touch up about once every 4 to 6 weeks. We also recommend a professional bleaching every 6 months.
- Will my teeth be sensitive?
Some are, some aren’t. If you have receding gums and/or are normally sensitive to cold or sweets, you will probably have sensitivity issues.
