Teeth WhiteningHow a professional teeth whitening treatment from your dentist in Norwich can enhance your smile

Is your smile dull and uninteresting? Has aging caught up with your smile? Do you want a brighter smile? If you answered yes to these questions, it’s time to discover professional teeth whitening! Now you can enjoy a bright, dazzling, white smile easily, thanks to modern teeth whitening methods. Dr. Jonathan Greene at Greene Dental Group in Norwich, CT, wants to share how professional teeth whitening can help you and your smile.

So, what’s so special about professional teeth whitening? There are many benefits to professional teeth whitening, which can’t be matched by over-the-counter products. Consider that professional teeth whitening is:

  • Fast, because the in-office treatment takes only about an hour; over-the-counter treatments can take weeks to show a result.
  • Safe, because the whitening products go through rigorous testing for safety and effectiveness and are approved by the American Dental Association before they are used; over-the-counter products may contain harmful chemicals and abrasives that can damage your teeth.
  • Effective, because you can whiten your teeth up to 8 shades whiter; over-the-counter products are often only minimally effective.
  • Long-lasting, because your results can last up to 5 years; over-the-counter products may last only a few weeks.

Professional teeth whitening is also very cost effective, costing far less than most cosmetic dental treatments and providing you with a brilliant, eye-catching smile.

Dr. Greene offers in-office whitening that takes about an hour using professional whitening gel which is accelerated with a high-tech ultraviolet light. It’s the safe, easy, quick way to get a smile you will love. It’s also an excellent option if you have a special event coming up and want to show off a great smile.

You can also take advantage of Dr. Greene’s Teeth Whitening for Life Program, which gives you free whitening as long as you comply with regular hygiene appointments, keep your mouth healthy, and maintain your account in good standing.

Many cosmetic dentistry patients work with their dentists to undergo extensive procedures which completely change the look of their teeth whiteningsmiles. However, there is a faster, easier, and less invasive way to give your smile a makeover in just a single dental appointment. Teeth whitening provides quick and dramatic results with minimal effort. Learn more about teeth whitening with Dr. Jonathan Greene at Greene Dental Group in Norwich, CT.

Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening? 
Patients wishing to take advantage of teeth whitening should be in good dental health with no signs of tooth decay or gum disease. Your dentist will need to resolve these problems before administering a teeth whitening treatment. Additionally, patients should have realistic expectations for their results. Though whitening treatments will provide noticeable results, they are not permanent. Patients should understand that their teeth will require touch-up appointments every six months to a year to maintain their results. Additionally, patients should alert their dentist to any sensitivity issues so their dentist can adjust their treatment accordingly.

Teeth Whitening and Your Smile 
Teeth whitening treatments are purely cosmetic and do not improve the functionality of your smile like other dental procedures. However, the boost to your confidence and self-esteem from having a smile you feel proud of can leave you feeling a renewed sense of self and loving the way you look. Additionally, teeth whitening requires you to repair any existing issues. This is best achieved at a bi-annual dental examination and cleaning, which keeps your teeth healthy and clean. Be sure to ask about how to get free teeth whitening for life.

If you think you could benefit from a teeth whitening treatment, you should consult with your dentist. You can also combine teeth whitening with other cosmetic or restorative dental procedures like a dental bridge or implant to fill in the gaps in your smile or dental contouring to even out the appearance of your teeth themselves. Talk with your dentist to determine the best treatments for you and your smile.
