Charlotte NC Teeth Whitening
Did you know that people with beautiful smiles are perceived as more successful, confident, and happier?
One of the quickest and most cost effective ways to improve your smile is to whiten your teeth, and Gentry Dental has got you covered with a number of great whitening options to meet your goals for your smile.
Whether you’re seeking immediate results or you'd like to whiten at home at your leisure, we have an option to meet your needs.
ZOOM! is one of our in-office whitening systems that delivers great results in one short office visit. We’ll create a barrier to protect your gum tissue from excess whitening gel, and then we’ll apply the gel to your teeth. ZOOM!’s high strength whitening gel is activated with a special light.
We finish with a fluoride treatment designed to reduce sensitivity, and you’ll leave our office with teeth that are six to eight shades lighter than when you started. ZOOM! is ideal for patients who need fast results.
The Kor whitening system combines both in-office and take-home treatments to produce some of the most phenomenal results we’ve seen. This process takes a bit longer because you’ll complete a series of in-office treatments, along with your take-home regimen. KöR is known for being able to remove stubborn discoloration, even tetracycline (a type of antibiotic) staining, that other systems cannot, making it the best choice for patients who may have lived a long time with discoloration or staining.
Take-Home Whitening Trays
For patients who’d like to whiten at home, we’ll create custom trays made from impressions we take of your teeth. We’ll give you whitening gel and a crash course on safely applying it, and then you’re off to a whiter, brighter smile. We recommend that initially you whiten for two weeks to achieve your desired results, and after that, you’ll be able to update your smile whenever you like.
Professional Whitening vs. Over-the-Counter Whitening
Some patients choose to whiten with over-the-counter products, and while this may seem more cost effective, here are some things you should consider:
- The whitening gel Dr. Gentry has access to is much stronger than over-the-counter products. It may take longer for you to achieve your desired results with store-bought whitening products.
- Dr. Gentry creates custom-fitting whitening trays while drug store systems are one size fits all. They could be ill fitting, which puts you at risk of injury from excess whitening gel.
- Over-the-counter products are often designed to focus on only your front six teeth, which may not produce your desired results.
- It’s always advisable to whiten your teeth under the supervision of your dentist in case you experience issues with sensitivity.
