We are your Marietta teeth whitening dentist, a place you can trust to gather the facts. There is so much information out there for dental whitening; it may be confusing where to start. There are products over the counter, high end stores offering whitening, so why would you have to go to a dental office anyway? Well, let us tell you the reasons why. Your Marietta dentist is responsible for your oral health as well as finding ways it may be possible to improving the esthetics of your smile. Whitening is a conservative way to get a dramatic result. But what they may not tell you at these stores, is that the particular stain on your teeth may not respond well to whitening even after up to 6 months of treatment (i.e. tetracycline stained teeth with a grayish hue that can be diagnosed by your dentist). They may not tell you that the fillings that you have in your front teeth will not change shade, and you may end up having to replace the discolored or decayed fillings in order to get the smile you want. They may not tell you that in order to get the shade you want, you will have to buy multiple treatments because the OTC percentage of bleaching agent may not be strong enough for shorter treatment time. They may not tell you that whitening can make sensitivity in teeth unbearable for some patients that have sensitivity due to decay, recession or nerve exposure. In short, please go to your cosmetic dentist Marietta at Verde Pointe Dental Associates to ensure that this teeth whitening process is done right. We will take impressions of your teeth, make casts to make custom trays, go over with you how to get the results you want and any precautions to take. You will know what to expect and get the results you want. The whitening material we use is the recommended percentage of whitening agent for the best results and is a product only sold in dental offices. Even more to your benefit, you will have had a complete exam and be more knowledgeable and able to maintain your oral health.
