Professional Teeth Whitening – Your Best Option a Bright Smile

Professional Teeth Whitening – Your Best Option a Bright Smile

Many consumers across the country have turned to tooth whitening kits to brighten up their smile – and Pittsburgh residents are no exception. What many don’t know is that these at-home whitening kits contain a number of hidden dangers that can cause more harm than good:

  1. The uneven spread of bleach can result in a patchy appearance on your teeth, looking as if you have had a failed procedure.
  2. Many popular DIY teeth whitening kits have very high acidity levels, which can cause damage to the teeth.
  3. The abrasive materials in some kits can result in erosion of teeth enamel, which is necessary for preventing tooth decay.
  4. The chemicals used in common DIY whitening kits can cause allergic reactions, or stomach upset if swallowed.

If you are looking for a brighter smile, your best option is to see a dental professional who is experienced in teeth whitening procedures. Professional in-office teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure in the world today. Having your teeth whitened by a professional ensures that you will receive individual treatment under monitored conditions which allow you to be sure that you are getting the proper care to give you a brighter smile.

Your dentist can sit down with you and evaluate which teeth whitening procedure will be best for you as well as discussing what is involved. There are several types of professional teeth whitening procedures available, and it is important to discuss exactly which one is right for you.

With professional teeth whitening, you’ll reap the benefits and the results, including:

  • Safer treatment with better results
  • Professional supervision
  • Addresses any sensitivity issues
  • Tooth color can customized to meet your individual needs
  • Teeth whitening by multiple shades in as little as an hour
  • Results last much longer

I just wanted to take a minute to write and let you know what a wonderful addition Dr. DeMiria is to your office. I was in twice this week and saw Dr. DeMiria on Monday for the first time. She is absolutely wonderful - just so nice and she really seems to be invested in her patients. The entire staff at Wexford office is wonderful and Dr. DeMiria is just icing on the cake.

I absolutely love King Orthodontics!! The staff are so friendly and actually care about you and your teeth. Almost everyone who works there knows you by name which is very uncommon for a place with so many patients. It is so worth the hour drive it takes me to get there. I would highly recommend King Orthodontics to anyone!!!!!
