What says “healthy smile” more than gleaming white teeth, and yet many people with perfectly healthy smiles don’t have those movie star grins they desire. This is because even the healthiest teeth can be discolored due to any number of reasons. Rather than hiding that grin, pay a visit to James Schmidt, DDS in St. Louis, MO and learn about the many teeth whitening options available.
In Office and At Home
When your oral health and hygiene are up to speed and yet you feel self-conscious about the looks of your healthy teeth and gums, it is time to meet with a cosmetic dentist. In our dental office, you can discuss all of your cosmetic needs and wishes and find an array of simple and effective options. For many, teeth whitening is one of the most popular choices because it can so easily, painlessly and effectively improve the looks of your smile.
Of course, not all teeth whitening treatments are alike, and our cosmetic dentist is happy to review the options available to you in our dental office. We offer in-office teeth whitening as well as at home options, and our take home kits are greatly superior to anything you might purchase over the counter at a local pharmacy or department store, simply because we do not offer the same “one size fits all” design.
Instead, any of our teeth whitening treatments will feature custom made “trays” that are designed specifically for your teeth. Your treatment will involve two visits to the dentist office, with the first to make the trays and the second to do the first treatment. You can then take home the trays and extra whitening products and use them twice daily for half of an hour or overnight over the course of several weeks. Once you get the degree of whitening desired, you need only visit periodically for further applications.
We make the remarkable Sinsational Smile available too.
This is a revolutionary treatment in which your teeth can be many shades brighter with just a single, 20-minute treatment. Again, this system uses specialized trays that are pre-filled with the powerful whitening agent. You visit our office and the comfortable trays are placed on the upper and lower jaws. These are amazingly comfortable, and once they are in place, we use a special LED light to activate the formula and do the rapid whitening.
There is a take home option for this approach too, and it comes in the form of a unique maintenance “pen” used to accurately apply the formula to the area along the gum and anywhere discoloration may have appeared.
You may not have even considered some teeth whitening in our dental office and you may have paid a visit to a cosmetic dentist because you are a bit self-conscious about your smile. However, whitening does more than erase the problems created by aging, coffee or tea drinking, smoking and medication. It also boosts your self-confidence and leaves you much happier. No longer hiding your smile or feeling embarrassed by discoloration does wonders for your self-esteem too.
