Brighten Your Smile with Teeth Whitening in Raleigh, NC
If there was one thing you could change about your smile, what would it be? Most dental patients immediately mention whiter teeth. In fact, it’s one of the most wished for cosmetic dentistry treatments we encounter. Teeth whitening is safe, effective, and changes the look of smiles quickly yielding fantastic results. If you’ve been thinking about teeth whitening, it’s time to ask Dr. Philip Lisk.
Why do Turn Teeth Yellow?
There are a variety of reasons patients seek out teeth whitening. Teeth turn yellow over time due to many factors including aging, tobacco use, and certain foods and drinks. Some patients may only experience a slight change in color, while others may have deep stains or discolorations. How dark your teeth become, and how quickly, depends largely on genetics and lifestyle.
Smoking is one of the worst things you can do for your body, and for your teeth. Patients who smoke or use chewing tobacco often have severe yellowing that’s almost impossible to remove with over-the-counter methods. Red wine, although enjoyed by many adults, can do a number on your smile. We also see some patients whose teeth are naturally darker than others, and who find that the additional discoloration incurred over the years makes them feel extremely insecure about their teeth.
In-Office Teeth Whitening with Zoom!
For patients with very discolored teeth, we recommend in-office teeth whitening with the Zoom! system. Zoom! teeth whitening uses a strong gel and special low-heat light that lifts stains and brightens. The Zoom! teeth whitening system is so efficient, most patients need just a single visit to get gorgeous white teeth. You can expect to be in our Raleigh cosmetic dentistry office for about one hour for your Zoom! teeth whitening procedure. We also provide a fluoride treatment after your whitening session to help strengthen teeth and ease any sensitivity.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
If you’re the type of patient who prefers to read a book on the couch while improving your smile, our take-home whitening kits may be right for you. Dr. Lisk will create custom trays for your whitening treatment for maximum comfort and to keep the whitening solution where it does the most good—on your teeth! Our professional-grade take-home whitening kits come with a gentle but thorough hydrogen peroxide and carbamide solution that whitens quickly. You’ll simply add the solution to your custom whitening trays and wear as directed each night. Most patients notice a visible difference after a few treatments with the most dramatic results occurring after about two weeks.
