Fall in Love with Your Smile Again with Teeth Whitening!

Are you tired of discolored teeth and feeling embarrassed to smile? If you’ve tried over-the-counter products or at-home remedies with no luck, it’s time to visit a cosmetic dentist in Fishers, IN! Professional teeth whitening may be just what you need to restore confidence in your smile. In many cases, your smile can be brightened up to four shades lighter in just one session!

 

Why Basic Products Don’t Work

Over-the-counter teeth whitening products may provide baseline results, but they won’t deliver the kind of natural white you desire for your smile. That’s because drugstore brands have only a minimal amount of peroxide gel and include other fillers to extend their shelf life. They won’t produce the results you want because they can’t! Overuse of these products can also harm your teeth as abrasive home remedies can. If you’re not seeing a difference in your smile with these options, don’t keep trying. Instead, schedule an appointment at our dental office in Fishers, IN.

 

The Power of Professional Whitening

Professional-grade teeth whitening provides faster and more reliable treatment, with significantly less tooth and gum sensitivity. In-office whitening generally consists of applying a thick coat of peroxide gel to the surface of the teeth. Then, a special light stimulates these whitening agents to target stains and discoloration deep within your tooth enamel.

We’ll supervise your whitening treatment to ensure your new smile is naturally white and complements your facial features and skin tone. In under an hour, your smile will be multiple shades brighter! You can also choose take-home options that produce similar results over several weeks.

 

Affording Your Teeth Whitening

Some of our patients are concerned about how much more professional whitening costs than over-the-counter products. While whitening in our office is more costly, know that you’re receiving more predictable and effective treatment, with beautiful results that last significantly longer. You can finance your treatment through companies like CareCredit®. This healthcare credit card helps you pay for dental expenses not covered by insurance. Monthly payments are based on your budget, so you won’t have to worry about how to afford cosmetic dentistry services again!

How Stain Resistant are Porcelain Veneers?

There are many ways to obtain a beautiful smile through cosmetic dental procedures in Fishers, IN. They can include getting veneers – dental tooth coverings – over your existing teeth.

 

What Are Veneers?

Dental veneers may be used to correct teeth discoloration, chipped teeth, tooth gaps, or crooked teeth. Dental veneers can be made from thin porcelain or composite resin materials and can look very natural when properly placed. Porcelain veneers are often stronger and more stain resistant than their resin counterparts, offering the ability to eat and drink foods that you normally would without having to be concerned with how your teeth may be affected. Typically, porcelain veneers are covered with resin, which helps them resist stains. However, while porcelain veneers offer a great tooth correction option for daily usage, they are not fully resistant to stains or completely unbreakable.

 

Maintain Your Veneers

Your veneers can offer a lifetime of support for your new beautiful smile. Remembering a few easy tips will help extend the life of your veneers and your smile.

  • Be sure to maintain proper oral hygiene. Regularly visiting your dentist will help keep your teeth healthy and increase the longevity of your veneers. Since your teeth are the foundation, it’s very important to keep them healthy and clean.
  • Change up your toothpaste. Some toothpastes are highly acidic and can increase the chances of your veneers breaking down over time. Be sure to choose an effective, yet gentle toothpaste that will keep your teeth clean.
  • Maintain healthy habits. Making sure you eat healthy and maintain healthy daily habits will not only ensure your veneers stay in their best shape, but will also help your overall health and wellness.
  • Avoid harmful foods. Avoiding harmful foods that are darker colored, hard, acidic, tough, or sticky foods and beverages can help maintain the integrity and quality of your veneers and your new smile. This may include wine, ketchup, hard fruits and vegetables, ice, tough meats or breads, and sticky foods. These items do not need to be fully removed from your daily life, but they should be consumed carefully to keep your veneers strong.
