Teeth Whitening in Davidson, NC
Our teeth are constantly changing. As we age, our smiles naturally dull, and certain habits (such as drinking coffee/tea, smoking/chewing tobacco, drinking red wine, and teeth grinding) can contribute to a browner or yellower appearance. Though natural and even generally harmless, brown or yellow teeth can seriously damage our confidence and cause us to keep our smiles to ourselves.
At Dastrup Dental, we believe that living well means smiling often. Restoring confidence in your smile is all about giving you the freedom to flash a grin whenever the mood strikes. Our made-to-order, take-home teeth whitening kits give you the tools you need to achieve the pearly white smile you’ve been dreaming about.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
After a brief appointment, the team at Dastrup Dental will provide you with a customized, take-home tooth whitening tray featuring professional strength gel to combat your degree of staining. The tooth whitening trays are fitted to your bite and teeth for a perfect fit throughout the whitening process.
After the customized tray is prepared, you’ll receive detailed instructions on the use of your kit. Although the details may vary from patient to patient, the whitening trays are generally worn for around an hour each day for two weeks. Patients will need to brush and floss before applying the whitening kit and need to avoid eating, drinking, and smoking during the application and at least 30 minutes afterward.
After two weeks are up, you’ll return to Dastrup Dental to compare tooth shades to gauge the effectiveness of the treatment. Your journey to a whiter smile begins and ends in no time flat!
