Teeth Whitening in North Dallas
There are many over-the-counter types of toothpaste that contain both fluoride and ingredients to whiten your teeth. Have you tried any of them? If you have, then you may have noticed that your teeth are still somewhat stained and discolored after brushing. That’s because what you are able to purchase over-the-counter is never as strong as what Dr. Greer and his staff can offer in our dental office. Moreover, the longer toothpaste or any other whitening agent sits on the shelf at your grocery store or pharmacy, the weaker the ingredients become. Therefore, for the best teeth whitening, Dallas residents rely on professional treatment from North Dallas dentist Dale W. Greer, D.D.S. Inc.
Why do my teeth discolor?
Just as other parts of the body succumb to the effects of time, so do teeth. Therefore, one of the primary reasons teeth become discolored is the unavoidable aging process—hardly anything you can do about that. Other things that influence the color of your teeth include:
- Your morning cup of coffee or tea
- Some of the foods you eat, such as carrots, berries and chocolate
- Cracks in your teeth that hide microscopic stain-causing particles of food and other debris
- Certain drugs and chemotherapy treatments
- Teeth grinding and clenching
All of these take a toll on the appearance of your smile. Dr. Greer can help with two different types of teeth whitening services.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
If you have a special occasion on the horizon—a graduation, wedding or important career presentation—then you’ll want to choose our in-office teeth whitening system. In just one appointment, you’ll have a smile that is several shades whiter and brighter. After we protect your lips and gums with a rubber dam, the whitening solution is applied to your teeth. Just sit back, relax and let our professional grade whitening system take your smile from drab to fab!
Dr. Greer knows that some of his patients are very busy people and another appointment at the dentist is just not going to fit in their schedules. If this is you, then we have at-home whitening kits. With these, you’ll fill your custom-fitted trays with the whitening gel we provide. Then, wear the trays for about an hour each day for two weeks. You’ll see results after the first treatment, but for the greatest whitening continue using the system for the recommended days.
