Teeth Whitening An Overview
Columbus, GA cosmetic dentist Dr. Albert Caves offers affordable, convenient professional teeth whitening treatments. We offer both in-office teeth whitening and at-home bleaching trays to fit your needs, goals and budget.
What Causes Discolored Teeth?
Your teeth will darken over time. Changes in the color of your teeth can be caused by such factors as the food and beverages consumed (like coffee, tea and soda). Other known factors for discoloration may include childhood medications or illnesses, tobacco use or improper oral hygiene.
Teeth Whitening What to Expect
We offer professional teeth bleaching that can be administered in office, at home or in combination. We only use carefully selected professional bleaching brands that minimize patient sensitivity and side effects while producing optimal results. Professional teeth whitening includes a custom fit bleaching tray. This customized appliance assures that the bleaching gel will be administered evenly and properly without causing damage to the gums or tooth enamel.
In Office Teeth Whitening vs. At Home Teeth Whitening
In office teeth whitening is a great way to “jump start” your teeth bleaching efforts. These results are usually delivered in about an hour and will give you a foundation for your at home efforts. At home teeth whitening treatment takes place over a number of weeks where the trays are worn either during the day or overnight, depending on the patient, for a set amount of time.
Is teeth whitening right for you?
Nearly everyone can benefit from teeth whitening. Having a whiter brighter smile can boost your confidence, make you more attractive and give you a younger appearance. Teeth whitening is perfect for special events such as weddings, graduations and job interviews.
