Almost all of the adults who participated in a survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry agreed that a smile is an important social asset. And most of them said that what they wanted most in a smile is whiter and brighter teeth. If you are interested in a brighter smile, you can get teeth whitening from Dr. Julia Shalit.
Advantages of Teeth Whitening from a Dentist
There are a lot of do-it-yourself treatments available to whiten your teeth. Whitening strips, toothpastes, and Internet sites for home remedies are plentiful. And those treatments likely cost less than the treatment you can receive from a dentist. So why get your teeth whitened by Dr. Shalit instead of doing it yourself? Consider the reasons listed below:
- Whitening toothpaste only removes surface stains. It won’t get your teeth any whiter.
- Whitening strips have only a fraction of the strength of the whitening gel that you can get from Dr. Shalit. If the strips work at all, the results are temporary.
- Dr. Shalit is a cosmetic dentist. Her additional training in cosmetic dentistry will help her to anticipate the results of whitening your teeth. Depending on the cause of the stains on your teeth, bleaching them can make the stains more noticeable.
Teeth Whitening Treatment Options
Our least expensive option for brightening your smile is Nite White®. Impressions of your teeth will be taken to make custom-fitted trays. Each night you’ll put a small amount of whitening gel into the trays and wear the trays while you sleep. Your smile will be remarkably whiter in two weeks. And you’ll do touch-ups as needed to maintain your dazzling smile.
Zoom!® Advanced Whitening will make your teeth up to eight shades lighter within an hour. How does it work?
Your lips and gums will be protected, leaving only your teeth exposed. Whitening gel will be applied to your teeth and the Zoom light will be used to activate the gel so that it gently penetrates your teeth to break down stains and discoloration. The gel will be applied in two 15-minute sessions. Your smile will be brilliantly whiter.
You’ll receive custom trays and whitening gel to use at home, which will help to get your teeth their whitest and keep them that way.
Dr. Shalit has received post-graduate training in cosmetic dentistry. She will be able to determine if this treatment is right for you.
