Decorations are up and about as everyone prepares for the season of love and giving – Christmas! But before you get caught up with all the festivities, drop by our dental practice at Lexington, SC, and avail yourself of dental treatments to make your smile shine bright. We offer you two ways to whiten your teeth effectively, so you can create that lasting impression at any event you grace. You can choose custom tray teeth whitening, an effective whitening treatment of your natural tooth enamel. You may also take advantage of dental veneers, a cosmetic dentistry treatment for stained and discolored teeth, as well as many other tooth imperfections. We, at Brad Pitts Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, are your trusted teeth whitening specialists in Lexington, SC.
What is Custom Tray Teeth Whitening?
Custom tray teeth whitening is a dental treatment that you perform independently at home. Dr. Pitts will take your dental impression and then have custom whitening trays made just for you. Dr. Pitts will provide you with your custom trays along with a bleaching gel. You will be instructed to apply the gel into the tray and then wear your custom tray at the prescribed number of hours every day. You can wear the tray at a time that’s most convenient for you. Most patients wear their trays during sleep, but you can also wear yours during the day. The key is to use the trays repeatedly for effective results.
The trays used in custom tray teeth whitening are made of smooth, flexible plastic, so rest assured that the trays are comfortable to wear. You can use them for long hours without causing mouth sores and gum irritation. They are also transparent, so they appear almost invisible when worn.
Custom tray teeth whitening can effectively whiten your teeth. Many patients claim that the results are dramatic, usually 6 to 7 shades lighter than the previous color of the teeth.
What are Dental Veneers?
While whitening trays brighten the natural tooth enamel, dental veneers work to cover stains on your teeth. Veneers are ultra thin, tooth colored shells, bonded onto the visible side of the teeth. Veneers, therefore, address not just discoloration but also chips, cracks, gaps, and misalignment. Veneers cover the teeth with porcelain shells that appear very much like natural teeth.
Since dental veneers can shorten, lengthen, and reshape a tooth, they are effective in creating a beautiful smile transformation. You will discuss the look that you want to achieve with Dr. Pitts. Together, you and the dentist choose the veneer shape, size, and color that transform your smile best.
