Teeth Whitening

Posted on by Dr. Cecchini

Whitening SmileAccording to a survey done by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, teeth whitening treatments are the number one requested cosmetic dental procedures. The national survey also found:

  • Virtually all adults (99.7%) believe a smile is an important social asset.
  • 96% of adults believe an attractive smile makes a person more appealing to members of the opposite sex.
  • 74% of adults feel an unattractive smile can hurt a person’s chances for career success.
  • And when respondents were asked, “What would you most like to improve about your smile?” The most common response was: Whiter & Brighter Teeth. If you are not happy with your smile, teeth whitening may provide the solution. It can drastically change your appearance and boost your self-esteem at the same time. It’s also an easy process and relatively inexpensive.

 Teeth whitening procedures can help:

  • Lighten coffee-stained teeth.
  • Remove cigarette and tobacco discolorations.
  • Correct yellowing in teeth due to aging.

At the Cecchini Advanced Center for Dentistry, we offer At-Home Dentist Supervised Teeth Whitening: 

  1. The patient wears a custom-fitted mouth tray containing a teeth whitening gel for a few hours each day or night.
  2. The trays can be adjusted to lighten individual teeth.
  3. The average patient will wear mouth trays for one to two weeks. More severe stains can often be improved with extended use of a home teeth whitening system.

Although numerous over-the-counter teeth whitening products are now available, the dentist-supervised teeth whitening remains the safest and most effective method for brightening your smile.
