With many activities on the agenda, it may be time to update your look! Have you considered teeth whitening in Tyler? You might be surprised to see what a huge impact a brighter smile can make, and Gentle Dental Care can help!
Is Whitening Right For You?
If you’re ready to upgrade your smile, the first step is to determine if whitening is right for your smile. If your teeth are in need of repair, or you have veneers or crown work, whitening may not be successful. Dr. Keith O. Gerber can help determine if whitening will be effective for you, and which system will best suit your goals and lifestyle.
In-Office or Take-Home Teeth Whitening
Your dentist in Tyler offers two options for teeth whitening that will accommodate most patients’ needs. If you need fast results, our in-office whitening system is the right choice. We use ZOOM! Whitening, which is proven very effective and delivers teeth that are 6-10 shades lighter than when you started after one short visit to our office.
We’ll start by building a protective barrier around your gums and soft tissues, then we’ll apply ZOOM!’s high strength whitening gel. The gel is activated with a special light, and then we finish with a fluoride treatment designed to eliminate any sensitivity you might experience. Then you leave our office with a dazzling smile.
If you’d prefer to whiten your teeth at home at your leisure, we’ll create custom trays for you with impressions we take of your teeth. These trays are designed to fit snug so they protect your gums and soft tissues from the injury that excess whitening gel can cause. We’ll teach you how to safely apply the whitening gel, and then you’re off to create your dream smile at home. The best part about take-home trays is the fact that you have the freedom to update your smile anytime you like.
Maintain Your New Smile
You can use whitening toothpaste to help maintain your new smile, however the best way to keep your teeth bright is to brush, floss, and attend your routine cleaning and checkups. Our hygienist will clean your teeth and remove excess plaque buildup; they can also help remove any staining to help you maintain your investment in your beautiful smile.
