As the years go by, our teeth naturally lose their youthful luster. Dark colored foods and drinks speed up the process, but even people who avoid coffee, wine and cola are not immune to yellow or gray teeth. Want to brighten up your smile? Teeth whitening at Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove is one of the quickest and most effective ways to recapture a beautiful smile.
Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?
Though some people experience a little short-term sensitivity, most have no pain at all.
There are several different methods for whitening teeth, but each uses a solution containing peroxide to remove the stains that have accumulated in the microscopic cracks in your tooth enamel.
DIY Whitening Products
The strips, mouthwashes and paint-on whiteners you find at the store use a lower concentration of whitening agent than in-office methods. They rarely remove all of the stains on your enamel. You are always better off having teeth whitening performed by a professional. This will protect your existing restorations and ensure the best possible results.
Don’t assume that tooth whitening offered at mall kiosks is risk-free. That industry is largely unregulated, and the staff often have little dental training.
At Arbor Lakes Dental, we offer our patients the GLO and KöR whitening systems. GLO and KöR use a light-activated process that deep-cleans debris from tooth enamel and leaves you with a youthful whiteness you’ll never be able to get from products at the grocery store.
In addition to professional teeth whitening, Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove offers cosmetic dentistry services like porcelain veneers. We also provide family dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
