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 Nashville Aesthetic Dentistry – Dennis J. Wells, DDS 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 Nashville Aesthetic Dentistry – Dennis J. Wells, DDS 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.
