Brighten Your Smile With Professional Teeth Whitening in Charlotte

Have you taken a moment to look at your teeth lately? If you’re like most people, they probably aren’t as white as they once were, and they are definitely not as white as you would like them to be. Why is that?

Teeth become yellowed, discolored, or stained over time due to a number of factors. Some people are born with whiter teeth than others, and some people experience more yellowing with age than others. Eating dark-colored foods like blackberries or foods with a lot of dark dyes in them can contribute to staining, as can drinking coffee and other dark beverages. Smoking cigarettes or cigars can also negatively affect the brightness of your teeth.

Whatever the reason, if you tend to smile with pursed lips or you cover your mouth when you laugh because you are embarrassed by your teeth, we can help you with superior teeth whitening treatments in Charlotte.

Teeth Whitening

What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a dental procedure that uses a low concentration of bleach, dental cleansing agents, or UV light to lift stains and lighten the color of your teeth. You can purchase over-the-counter products to whiten your teeth at home, but these are never as effective as professional whitening or bleaching (lightening your teeth beyond their natural shade).

When you choose in-office or at-home professional whitening treatments with Robert A. Lowe, DDS, we will provide you with professional-grade whitening products and services. In just a single visit with Dr. Lowe, you can see significant whitening results. You may also choose at-home treatments, in which case we will take impressions of your teeth to create custom dental trays for your whitening gel.

What Can You Expect When You Have Your Teeth Whitened or Bleached?

Whether you choose in-office or at-home treatments, we will create custom dental trays to fit your teeth and prevent any whitening gel from coming into contact with your gums. In just a single visit with us, you can see an improvement of up to 10 shades. With further whitening appointments or at-home whitening using professional-grade whitening gel and your custom trays, we can help you achieve the brightest white smile you’ve had in your entire life. Be sure to follow our aftercare instructions to maintain that new white smile for as long as possible.

Is Teeth Whitening Right for You?

If you are ashamed of your dull, yellowed, or stained smile, teeth whitening might be the perfect solution for you. If your teeth are not naturally very white, and you are uncertain about lightening them beyond their natural shade, we might also recommend veneers or dental bonding to achieve the same effects. For most people, though, teeth whitening is an affordable, painless, and effective cosmetic procedure with amazing results; that’s a fact.

Keeping Your Teeth White and Bright After Your Treatments

After you have your teeth whitened in Charlotte, Dr. Lowe will recommend that you continue maintaining good dental and oral hygiene and that you visit us regularly for cleanings. He may also recommend slight changes in diet, and he will definitely suggest that you quit smoking (if you are a smoker) to avoid future staining.
