Professional Teeth Whitening in North Ridgeville, OH
Keeping your teeth bright and white is a significant part of maintaining a confident and beautiful smile. Regular brushing and flossing will go a long way in helping keep your teeth healthy. However, routine oral hygiene alone isn’t always enough to fight stains and discoloration. That’s why Dr. Scott Arndt and the Center Ridge Dental Professionals team offer teeth whitening services in North Ridgeville, OH.
What is Cosmetic Teeth Whitening?
As you eat, drink, and smoke, food particles and minerals will stain the outer layer of your teeth, called the enamel. These stains are more common when consuming items such as coffee, red wine, dark soda, and snacks that are high in sugar. Brushing and flossing can eliminate physical food particles and bacteria that lead to cavities but cannot entirely remove staining from certain food or drinks.
Cosmetic teeth whitening helps eliminate the stains built up from residue on your enamel. There are two methods of whitening your teeth:
- Professional teeth whitening: This method is performed at a dentist’s office. Your dentist whitens your teeth using a highly concentrated bleaching solution that works quickly and effectively.
- At-home teeth whitening: You can whiten your teeth at home using whitening trays or strips that you wear over your teeth. The trays contain a similar bleaching solution to what a dentist would use, but it is a much lower concentration. This means that you won’t see results immediately.
Is Dental Whitening Painful?
One of the primary concerns with most dental whitening methods is tooth sensitivity. However, tooth sensitivity due to a whitening procedure is a rare occurrence. It happens more often to patients who have their teeth professionally whitened frequently. It can also occur because of misuse of at-home whitening products.
Teeth Whitening Cost
The cost of whitening your teeth depends on how extensive the procedure will be. Unfortunately, insurance plans don’t cover teeth whitening because they don’t consider it necessary for your health.
