Professional Teeth Whitening
At Southlake Dental, we know how important your smile is when it comes to your self-confidence. A bright, shiny smile can transform your appearance and change the way you look at yourself in the mirror. To help you achieve the whiter smile you’ve always wanted, we provide professional teeth whitening services in our Merrillville, IN dental office.
Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening?
Due to the supervised nature of professional teeth whitening solutions, we typically recommend professional teeth whitening treatments over at-home treatment options. While teeth whitening is perfectly safe for most dental patients, it is possible to suffer mild side effects from teeth whitening solutions, such as tooth sensitivity. With a supervised whitening treatment, our dentist can help you avoid or manage those side effects. Additionally, teeth whitening treatments offered in a dental office generally provide better and faster results than over-the-counter options
In our office, we can help you create a brighter smile quickly and easily using teeth whitening trays. Our dentist, Dr. Christopher Lukasik, will work with you to reach your desired shade in a safe, professional environment, creating a smile you are eager to share!
Getting the Best Results
Teeth whitening treatments work best on clean, plaque-free teeth. To achieve the best whitening results, we always recommend that you have a dental cleaning before your first teeth whitening treatment. We are happy to schedule your dental cleaning in our office.
Our dentist will also examine your teeth before you begin any teeth whitening treatment plan. If you have cavities, damaged teeth, gum disease, or any other dental problems, we may recommend addressing those issues before beginning your teeth whitening treatment.
We want you to enjoy a safe and effective teeth whitening experience, and we want you to get the best results possible!
How Long Do Teeth Whitening Solutions Last?
Teeth whitening solutions can last for up to three years. However, how long your teeth whitening treatments last will largely depend on how well you care for your teeth after the treatments.
To help your teeth stay bright for as long as possible, you should adhere to good oral hygiene practices. Brush your teeth at least twice per day and floss every day. Also, avoid ingesting a lot of foods and drinks that are likely to stain your teeth, like coffee, tea, sodas, acidic foods, like tomatoes, and candy. You don’t necessarily need to eliminate those items from your diet, but you should cut back on teeth-staining snacks and beverages.
Also, if you do indulge in sugary or staining snacks or beverages, it helps to drink water immediately afterward or wash your mouth out with water.
