Nothing makes quite the impression that a bright, white smile does. If you have stained teeth, then the dental team at Martin Taylor Dentistry in Tucson, AZ has teeth whitening solutions to help you safely and effectively whiten your smile.
How teeth whitening works
Brushing your teeth can help get rid of surface stains and discolorations, but many stains reside beneath the surface of the teeth in the tubules. These tiny channels in the enamel of your teeth soak in dark or highly pigmented substances such as coffee, tea, wine, red sauces, and tobacco, which leads to a yellowed appearance to your teeth. With professional tooth whitening, we create custom-fitted trays for your mouth and provide a medical-grade whitening solution that gently but effectively lifts the stains from the tubules for a bright smile that is several shades whiter.
Why choose professional teeth whitening?
With a wealth of tooth whitening products available at your local grocery store or pharmacy, it can be tempting to perform teeth whitening at home. However, professional teeth whitening services offer many advantages over these over-the-counter products. Simply put, professional whitening works better, faster, and is safer.
- Dentists offer medical-grade teeth bleaching agents, which provide better whitening results in a shorter amount of time
- The custom trays are more comfortable than over-the-counter options
- Custom-fitted trays not only help cover all the surfaces of your teeth evenly with the whitening solution, but they also keep the gel where it belongs – on your teeth, not on your gums, where it can cause irritation and sores
- Over-the-counter formulations do not always work, may not be made from safe materials, and can cause intense tooth sensitivity
- Dr. Taylor and Dr. Martin follow up with you during the whitening process to ensure that you are getting the results you want without negative side effects
Even better, if you notice that your teeth are becoming yellowed again in the future, you can use your customized trays for touch-up treatments to maintain your beautiful results.
