Teeth Whitening

Patients have more options than ever before when it comes to teeth whitening. Unlike many other dental procedures, teeth bleaching or whitening is strictly cosmetic, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t important. Discolored teeth can have a deep impact on one’s self-esteem, which is why we believe all patients should have access to products, treatments and procedures that can whiten their teeth and brighten their smile. People are expected to smile every day of their life, whether they are happy or not. If a person doesn’t smile, people often wonder “what’s wrong?”

Who wouldn’t want to be as confident as possible during business and personal dealings? If one source of your insecurity is the state of your smile, then it is time to contact Kansas City, MO teeth-whitening expert Dr. James R. Anderson, DDS.

Whether you partake in bad habits like smoking tobacco, or otherwise healthy-enough habits like a couple of coffees a day, just eating and drinking regular items can leave you with stained or discolored teeth over time.

Teeth-whitening procedures can be done professionally by a qualified dental professional or in the comfort of your own home. If you choose a DIY procedure, Dr. Anderson can provide you with a gel solution for whitening at home with a custom-fit tray for your teeth.

Whitening trays dispensed by your dentist are usually far safer and more effective than the over-the-counter kits available at stores.

So what are some benefits that teeth-whitening can provide for those who choose at-home treatment?

Long-lasting results. Stain-free teeth are highly-sought after regardless of who you are. You don’t need to be a celebrity to want whiter teeth. Keep in mind that whitening does last for several months, but after that, maintenance is often required.

At-home teeth whitening is convenient. Use the bleaching trays providing by Dr. Anderson’s office when it works for you. It’s all about your convenience this way, and you can leave the trays on for short or longer periods until you determine the right shade of white you would like your teeth to be.

If you work in a relaxed atmosphere, you can even whiten your teeth while on the job. Long commute? If you don’t mind fellow motorists giving you funny looks, by all means it’s easy and safe to whiten while driving, or doing anything else where you will not be in public. Teeth-whitening trays are portable, so they can easily be transferred from home to office and back again whenever you can make time for that day’s whitening treatment.

Dentists often recommend that patients start out with at-home whitening, as it is fairly hassle-free and often significantly less expensive than other procedures that may be restorative in nature, like dental crowns and veneers, which “cover” the discolored teeth with a different structure rather than bleach the existing tooth or teeth.

Do you think your teeth would benefit from a whitening treatment? Call Dr. Anderson’s cosmetic dentistry office today at 816.454.3336 to discuss how we can help you achieve whiter teeth– which we know gives patients just that many more things to smile about.

Sounds weird, I know. But, according to past United States Surgeon General, Dr. David Satcher, the mouth (oral cavity) is often referred to as the Sentinel of Health. When you think about it, the mouth is the largest entry point to the inside of the body.
