According to the Forest Dental Center, giving your smile a boost with professional tooth whitening also helps your self-esteem.

Done in office or with custom made take home trays, professional tooth whitening in Lynchburg can lighten your teeth several shades. When you schedule an appointment with your dentist in Lynchburg, you can have your teeth lightened chairside.

If Forest Dental Center recommends additional tooth whitening, custom-made whitening trays will be made that you will wear as prescribed.

What Causes Stained Teeth or Discoloration?

Red wine and a good bolognaise will stain your teeth. Consequently, too much fluoride, tobacco, age and chemicals in medications can stain your teeth as well. In office tooth whitening, along with custom made take home trays for touch ups, is an effective way to give you a brighter smile.

While Zoom! professional tooth whitening and custom-made take home trays remove surface stains and some intrinsic stains; it won’t brighten your dental restorations. If you have porcelain veneers, dental implants, tooth colored fillings or dental bonding any type of tooth whitening will be ineffective.

Lynchburg Dentist Recommends Professional Tooth Whitening

Although pastes, strips, gels, and tooth whitening products are readily available at your local pharmacy, your smile will not be as white. Because your Lynchburg cosmetic dentist uses a prescription strength bleaching agent, you’ll have much better results.

Overuse and leaving the hydrogen peroxide on for too long can also cause damage to your teeth. Your dentist in Lynchburg has seen patients who have overused over the counter pastes and strips.

Overuse could cause weak enamel or translucent teeth. If you have been considering tooth whitening, have it done by a licensed and preferred provider.
