Professional Teeth WhiteningProfessional teeth whitening provides patients with numerous cosmetic and other benefits. Patients who have previously hidden their smiles in photos and when in the company of others can smile with confidence once again knowing that their teeth look bright and beautiful. This is a commonly requested cosmetic treatment that can be scheduled at North Atlanta Family Dentistry in Cumming and Johns Creek, GA.

The Teeth Whitening Process
Over-the-counter whitening products try to mimic what a dentist will do to whiten your teeth. You’re instructed to cover your teeth with a bleaching agent, but it is nowhere near as strong and effective as what your dentist offers. At a whitening appointment, your gums and soft tissues of your mouth are protected so that they don’t become irritated or inflamed. After the dental-grade bleaching agent is added to each tooth, a special light is applied to your smile, locking in the whitening action.

Benefits of Professional Whitening
There is no long wait, no mess, and no stress when you go to your Cumming and Johns Creek, GA, dentist to have your teeth whitened. The entire process is completed in about 60 to 90 minutes. You can debut your smile to your loved ones the very next day or right after the appointment. Professional teeth whitening also offers a long-lasting solution—some patients see results for as long as four years.

Take Care of Your Enamel
After whitening, dental care is more important than ever. Your enamel may be more vulnerable to staining, so you must brush regularly with a fluoride toothpaste. You must also try to avoid direct contact with foods and beverages that can easily stain your teeth, like blueberries and tomato sauce. The best way to prevent future staining is to go to your dentist every three to six months for professional cleanings.
