We haven’t actually counted, but there must be hundreds of over-the-counter teeth whitening products. From toothpastes to mouthwashes to whitening strips to gels, most of them do a decent enough job. But for a truly dazzling smile, you need professional whitening like you’ll get at the Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry and Dr. Dennis Wells in Brentwood.
The products you can get at the grocery store can whiten your teeth in as little as a few weeks. They work on the surface stains you get from coffee or tea, the foods we eat, and the passage of time.
Unlike over-the-counter teeth whitening products, professional-grade whiting uses highly concentrated amounts of peroxide, usually in gel form. In as little as a single office visit, your teeth can be whitened up to fifteen shades, far surpassing anything you’ll find in the Oral Care aisle.
Many dental practices also offer their patients professional-grade kits they can administer at home. These, too, give excellent results.
At the Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry in Brentood, our teeth whitening process involves a light-activated solution that is highly effective. We also offer our patients special take-home kits. Visit our smile gallery to see samples of what we can do. Other cosmetic dentistry services include porcelain veneers, and teeth-colored fillings.
