If whitening toothpaste isn’t cutting it, our dentists can help!teeth whitening

Have you been trying every whitening toothpaste or whitening kit possible but still don’t have a dazzling white smile? While these products can be a great way to remove minor stains over time, if you are looking for a quick and effective way to brighten your smile, then it might be time to consider getting professional teeth whitening from our Billerica, MA, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kunio Chan.

Who Should Consider Professional Teeth Whitening?

If you have good oral health and are dealing with dental stains, chances are good that you could be a candidate for professional whitening. If you have yellow stains caused by aging, or the foods you consume, our powerful whitening system is enough to remove these stains (often in just one visit). In just one hour, you could have a smile that’s several shades whiter.

Of course, not all stains will respond as effectively to this treatment. Stains that are brown, blue or gray may not whiten as well as yellow discolorations. Also, if you have dental restorations like fillings or crowns you should know that whitening treatment will not lighten these artificial structures.

The best way to determine whether professional teeth whitening is right for you is to see our Billerica dentist for a consultation. We will be able to determine if teeth whitening is the best approach or whether there are better cosmetic options out there.

Other Options for a Whiter Smile

In most cases we will find that people can benefit from what professional in-office teeth whitening can offer. Of course, if you have gum disease or tooth sensitivity then we may have already told you that your smile isn’t right for whitening treatment. This doesn’t mean that you have to just put up with a yellow smile. There are other options like dental crowns or veneers, which can mask these imperfections and improve the overall appearance of your smile.

One Dental Care in Billerica, MA, is ready to help you get the whiter smile you want. Whether you are ready to take the plunge or you have questions about our whitening treatment, don’t hesitate to reach out to us to learn more.
