Did you know that the foods and drinks you consume every day can stain your teeth? While your teeth may look clean after you brush them, if you compare them to when you were younger, they probably look dingy. Here are three reasons to get GLO Science teeth whitening treatments from our dentists at TLC Dental Care in Knoxville, TN.
With commercial whitening kits, toothpaste, or whitening strips, it can take several applications of them before you start seeing results. Due to the cost of some kits, you might spend more money by trying to whiten your teeth at home than you would by having our dentists whiten your teeth at TLC Dental Care.
The whitening solution that our dentist uses to professionally whiten your teeth has a higher concentration than over-the-counter whitening products. For people between the ages of 15 and 25, over-the-counter whitening products may be sufficient. However, from 30 years of age on up, it would take longer to whitening your teeth with over-the-counter products due to the deeper stains. In these cases, professional teeth whitening treatments would be more efficient.
At our office, we use Glo Science Professional Whitening. The mouthpiece trays that we use the whitening solution with warms up the gel and allows it to work faster and penetrate deeper with each application.
With good care, your professional teeth whitening results can last up to a year before you need to touch it up again. By brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing, and reducing the amount of staining foods and drinks that you consume, professional whitening treatment will last much longer than an over-the-counter kit.
While using an at-home whitening kit can help make your teeth slightly brighter, the bleaching agent can sometimes get on your gums or lips. However, when you go to one of our dentists at TLC Dental Care in Knoxville, TN, for a whitening treatment, they are careful not to get the solution on other parts of your mouth.
