The enamel that covers your teeth is the hardest substance in the human body. Enamel is built to withstand the wear and tear of biting and chewing for your entire life. But enamel isn’t built to resist staining and discoloration. Over time, beverages like coffee, tea, and colored sodas as well as cigarette smoking can darken and discolor your teeth.
If you’re hesitant to smile or laugh because your teeth aren’t as white as you’d like, call Lakeside Dentistry in Rochester, MN for professional teeth whitening services. You’ll be astonished at the results you can achieve in just one hour.
Why Professional Whitening Treatment Is Best
There are any number of over the counter whitening products that you can use at home. Some of those products, though, can be hard on your enamel and gums. Since you only have one set of teeth, it doesn’t make sense to experiment with drugstore whitening products.
Our professional whitening treatments at Lakeside Dentistry are safe and far more effective in giving you the brilliantly white smile you want. We use teeth whitening treatments from the highly respected brand Opalescence. Opalescence products not only whiten your teeth, they also help strengthen your tooth enamel, decrease tooth sensitivity, and even help prevent cavities from forming.
Over the counter whitening programs don’t offer any of those benefits and may put your teeth at risk.
In our Rochester, MN dental office, we offer two teeth whitening options – in-office or take-home treatment. Here’s what you can expect from each.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
For people who want whiter teeth in a hurry, or who don’t want mess with trays and gel at home, an hour in the dental chair will produce remarkable improvement. Our highly trained staff will carefully apply the Opalescence whitening gel to your teeth only and monitor you during treatment. That helps protect against any sensitivity in your gums, lips, and tongue. There’s no light needed to activate the gel. Just sit back and relax while Opalescence works its whitening magic.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
If you prefer the convenience and privacy of whitening at home, we offer our take-home whitening program. We’ll supply the gel together with the generic whitening trays. Or, we can also provide customized dental trays if you wish. The take-home gel has a lower concentration of whitening ingredients; expect about a week of use before you achieve the results you want.
Our Teeth Whitening Treatments Do Good For You And Others
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that focuses on giving you your whitest smile. But when you choose our Rochester, MN dental office to provide your whitening treatments, you can do far more than whiten your teeth.
You can make your teeth beautiful and brighten the lives of others through Lakeside Dentistry. We donate the proceeds from teeth whitening treatments to Rochester, MN charities. Help yourself while benefiting charities like the Von Wald Group Home and the Quarry Hill Nature Center.
If you’re ready to have your whitest and most beautiful smile, call Lakeside Dentistry at 507-322-3729. You can also use our convenient online form to make an appointment.
