Teeth Whitening An Overview
Teeth whitening can be a quick and economical smile makeover for an upcoming wedding, reunion or special event. A whiter, brighter smile will boost your smile confidence and take years off of your appearance. A local cosmetic dentist in Strongsville, OH, Dr. Leah Butler offers experienced care for whitening teeth with superior results.
Why choose the dentist for teeth whitening?
Many patients ask this question when faced with the choice of many over the counter options or a professional treatment administered in our office. While over the counter options can offer results for many patients, Dr. Butler can work with you to maximize results and ensure the safest outcome. Professionally administered teeth whitening uses superior quality bleaching products, offers consistent results and will address tooth stains and discoloration below the surface enamel.
Dr. Butler will meet with you to discuss your cosmetic goals and to evaluate your dental health before recommending a teeth whitening treatment. It is always best to start with a healthy oral foundation for the best result. Professional whitening treatment will also minimize side effects such as increased sensitivity or irritation of the gums and soft tissues.
Am I a candidate for teeth whitening?
Dr. Butler will evaluate the condition of your teeth and identify the cause of your tooth stains or discoloration. There are certain types of tooth stains that are considered resistant to teeth whitening agents, including changes in tooth color as a result of certain medications, medical conditions or genetics. For patients with tooth discoloration considered resistant to bleaching, Dr. Butler can offer alternative cosmetic treatments. Tooth bonding, dental crowns, and dental veneers can change the color and appearance of your smile with permanent results.
