Reading Dental has Mastered the Art of First Impressions
Our experienced team understands how critical first impressions can be, both in your personal and professional life, which is why we’ve worked tirelessly over the years to create a tooth whitening service that delivers results fast.
How Do I Know If Professional Teething Whitening Is Right for Me?
If you are currently supporting a heavy coffee addiction, or fancy a glass of red wine after a long day in the office, your lifestyle and the choices you make can leave their mark on your teeth. Which is why we recommend our in-house teeth whitening procedure to our patients, especially those that are eager to remove pesky and stubborn tooth stains once and for all.
Store-bought whitening pastes, washes, gels and strips, that only partially work and don’t prevent stains from coming back, are simply a waste of your time and money. Whereas our custom, in-house procedure was expertly designed to combat the most common and persistent stains, including:
- Age Stains – over time, your teeth can darken to a yellow, brown, green or sometimes even grey hue
- Food Stains – not all foods are created equal and some stain your teeth more than others, with the most notable being coffee, red wine, sodas, and dark-colored vegetables and fruits such as cherries, pomegranates, radishes, raspberries and peppers
- Tobacco Stains – use of any and all tobacco products, including cigarettes, cigars, and chewing tobacco, can leave some pretty serious stains on your teeth
We are often asked by our clients if our teeth whitening treatment is permanent, and the simplest answer to that question is no. Our treatment does remove prominent stains for good, however, it is essential that you continue to maintain proper oral hygiene, like brushing and flossing, avoid dark colored and acidic foods, and refrain from tobacco use, to ensure that your teeth stay bright and white long after the procedure is complete.
The Teeth Whitening Procedure:
Number of Appointments Required: Approximately one visit
Below is a step-by-step description of what you can expect:
Step 1: Dr. Simons will perform a quick mouth exam. During this exam, he will be looking for any signs of decay, cracking and/or gum disease. This is a critical step because any of these issues can directly affect the success of the whitening process as well as cause varying degrees of irritation and discomfort during treatment.
Step 2: Your teeth will be cleaned to make sure that all debris and plaque have been removed.
Step 3: A photo of your teeth will be taken which will serve as a benchmark for assessing your future progress.
Step 4: Your teeth will be fit for custom, airtight trays.
Step 5: Our professional whitening formula will be deposited inside your custom trays.
Step 6: Depending on the shade of your teeth and your goals, you may need to wear the trays for up to 60 minutes.
As incredible as it may seem, once this simple six step process is complete, you will have a beautiful and bright smile that you can feel proud of.
Of course, no two patients, teeth or smiles are the same, so we want to meet with you in person to give you our best advice. To get Dr. Simon’s personalized professional recommendation, call us at 781-944-5020, or fill out our quick form on the right to set up your complimentary consultation.
