Benefits of Teeth Whitening

December 16, 2015 - 3 minutes read

There are a lot of benefits of teeth whitening, not the least of which is that it gets you a better-looking smile. When we’re talking about tooth whitening, what we mean is the real deal – a professional whitening treatment. We’re not talking about a box full of little strips that you put on the front of your teeth and then end up throwing away because they’re not all that convenient to use, and besides, they don’t really get the job done. With professional whitening treatments offered by Old Milton Dental in Alpharetta, you can actually remove years’ worth of unsightly stains. Even if you’ve been constantly indulging in red wine, coffee, tea and cola drinks – or, Heaven forbid, smoking – you can get a beautiful looking smile with the help of professional tooth whitening treatments.

A brighter smile means that you’re going to feel better about yourself, and you’ll be more willing to show off that smile. That, in turn, means that you’ll be making a better impression on the people with whom you come into contact. Tooth whitening might even lead to better oral health. That doesn’t mean that it’s going to reverse decay, or fix cracks or anything like that. What it does mean is that because you’ll be so happy with the way your teeth look, you’re more likely to want to take care of them with regular brushing, flossing and checkups. So, those are the benefits. Now let’s talk about specific ways of whitening your teeth.

We personally recommend the KOR method of whitening teeth. It’s safe, effective, and the treatment can be completed in less than an hour. It simply involves filling a tray that’s specially contoured in order to ensure your comfort with a powerful bleaching gel, and then placing it in your mouth. You can expect to get amazing results in a single treatment, and once we’re done, we can give you teeth whitening trays that you can take home with you. That means you won’t have to come back quite as often for in-office treatments.

The only down side to whitening treatments is that if you have crowns, bridgework, tooth-colored fillings, or other such treatments along with your natural teeth, they won’t respond to whitening. So if you’re planning on getting a crown or other prosthesis, have your whitening treatment first so that you can be assured of a proper match.
