Even a perfectly healthy, symmetrical, and otherwise attractive smile can fall victim to the every day wear and tear of age, medications, food and drink, and habits like smoking. Stains and discolorations not only cause embarrassment and have a negative impact on confidence and self-esteem, which can take a toll on everything from work to social and romantic relationships. They can even make a person look older. In fact, a professional teeth whitening procedure can often enhance the results of more intensive cosmetic procedures designed to take a few years off of the face. And in many cases, investing in whiter teeth can even eliminate the need to invest in cosmetic facial enhancements altogether.
Professional Teeth Whitening in Milton
The family dentists Drs. John and Patrick Murphy of Murphy Dental Group in Milton, MA can reinvigorate a faded, discolored smile in as little as an hour, with an in-office professional teeth whitening treatment with a hydrogen peroxide gel mix not available over the counter. For patients who prefer to apply the treatment on their own in the comfort of their own home on their own schedule, an at-home version uses custom designed trays from a mold of the patient's teeth, which is then filled with the gel and worn for up to an hour a day over the course of a few weeks, until the desired results are reached.
Teeth whitening is safe, effective, and affordable for the entire family. While over the counter products can help somewhat, they won't have the same impact as a professional treatment. For some stains that develop from the inside of the teeth, surface whitening products will be ineffective, and treatment with porcelain veneers or bonding may be a better option.
