Your smile plays a vital role in not only how attractive you look, it affects your self-confidence as well. When your teeth are discolored it can affect how you feel about yourself, even how you act around others. You may be tempted to hide your mouth when you eat, laugh, or smile. Teeth whitening procedures can transform your teeth from discolored yellow or brown shades to bright white quickly and easily, without using strips or other store-bought products that can take weeks or even longer to deliver results. Even then, the results are not equal to what you will experience when you have your teeth professionally whitened at Blue Valley Cosmetic & Family Dentistry!
Teeth whitening doesn’t have to be a painful or uncomfortable experience, even for those with sensitive teeth. Dr. O’Neil is happy to offer the KoR Whitening Deep Bleaching System at the Overland Park facility, one of the most advanced technologies available in teeth whitening today. Everyone desires a whiter smile, and now it’s possible for people of all ages, whether you’re a teen who lacks self-confidence because of stained teeth, or an adult who simply desires to remove years of discoloration caused by tea, coffee, even tobacco or other foods and beverages.
There are many advantages of having your teeth whitened in your dentist’s office versus using products designed for home use:
Quicker results, with optimum results typically achieved in just one or two visits
- Results are permanent
- Even those with sensitive teeth will find the process comfortable
- No worries about side effects often associated with peroxide-based products
- Eliminates concerns about over-use (or abuse) of over-the-counter whitening products
Certain drugs can also cause discoloration of the teeth. These include some medications for high blood pressure, antipsychotic drugs, antihistamines, and certain antibiotics including doxycycline and tetracycline. For adults, the aging process naturally results in teeth that aren’t as white as they once were, because the enamel gradually wears away and dentin (which is naturally yellow in color) is revealed. Certain diseases and even genetics or environmental factors (such as high levels of fluoride in water sources) can leave you with discolored teeth. In-office teeth whitening is the best solution for those young and old, regardless of the underlying cause of discoloration.
By having teeth professionally whitened using the latest techniques, patients enjoy many benefits including:
- A safe, comfortable way to whiten teeth without worry of harm to teeth or gums
- Painless teeth whitening, even for those with sensitive teeth or gums
- Increased self-confidence – feel good about your smile
- Permanent results
- Cost effective
- Dramatic results, up to 16 shades whiter
- Home maintenance makes it possible to maintain your high-wattage smile while enjoying tea, coffee, wine, and other foods/beverages
An attractive smile makes for a more confident, attractive you! Teenagers are often self-conscious enough, without the burden of yellow or discolored teeth making things worse. For an adult, stained teeth can negatively impact not only your personal life, but your career; no career professional feels comfortable greeting clients or giving a presentation when they don’t feel they project confidence. Regardless of your age, gender, or situation, consider consulting with Dr. O’Neil for all of the details on today’s innovative teeth whitening procedures.
