Professional teeth whitening works to restore the youthful vibrancy of your smile in Cleveland, OH
Stained, discolored teeth are a common problem. But yellow, dull teeth no longer must mar the beauty of your smile. We at Downtown Dental Services have three different options to bring back the youthful vibrancy of your teeth. There is certain to be a tooth whitening option suited to your needs, lifestyle, and goals.
The beauty of professional care
Dr. Tony Lu prescribes and oversees all whitening treatments available at our Cleveland, OH office. As a dentist, he has access to powerful whitening formulas that are clinically proven to break up and lift stain molecules. You also have peace of mind that the whitening ingredients will be applied evenly and safely for the most attractive results and comfortable experience. He also examines your mouth to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy before recommending treatment. Options will also be discussed should you have pre-existing dental-work, such as crowns. Restorations do not respond to teeth whitening.
At a young age, our teeth are healthy and white but over time the enamel coating the tooth is slowly worn down causing our teeth to become stained and yellow which is why teeth whitening is becoming increasingly popular today. There are a few methods for whitening – they include at home and in office. With in-office treatments you will see faster results, receive the safest treatments for bleaching the teeth and yield the whitest smile. So don’t settle for teeth that have become stained from years of coffee drinking, tobacco use or just ageing. Ask your dentist about whitening options that maybe right for you.
After confirming your oral health and speaking with you about your preferences and goals, Dr. Lu may suggest one of three whitening methods:
- Opalescence Go™ — These convenient whitening trays may be used to lift mild stains caused by staining foods and drinks. Precision-fit appliances come pre-filled, and easily slip over the teeth to deliver prescription-strength whitening gel. Wear as directed by your dentist each day to gradually reveal your whiter teeth.
- Opalescence Boost™ — Chronic coffee-drinkers or patients with built-up stains and moderate discoloration may benefit from this in-office treatment. Dr. Lu expertly applies the chemically activated whitening formula to your teeth. There are no uncomfortable heat lamps because the ingredients are not light activated. In a single, one-hour visit, you can eliminate years of cumulative stains.
- KöR® Whitening – Patients with very dark yellow or brown discoloration that does not respond well to other systems can get noticeable results with this proprietary system. Specialized whitening trays seal in a proprietary gel, which is sufficiently powerful to remove even deep discoloration such as tetracycline stains.
We are happy to provide so many ways for patients to get the smile of their dreams, or to restore their confident smiles. Do not waste your time and money on OTC products that either do not work or that cause irritation and sensitivity. Contact us for gentle yet powerful whitening that really works.
