Patients dissatisfied with the color of their teeth may find that they smile less or feel much more self-conscious when they do. Albuquerque, NM area dentist, Dr. Mark W. Johnson, understands the struggle. He knows how much patients will spend on whitening products available over the counter and how unhappy patients are with the results they achieve. Instead, patients in the area should consider the advantages of professional teeth whitening treatments available at his facility for new and established patients.
Over-the-counter products are often much less concentrated in ingredients because they need to be safe for patients to use on their own. This means that the gels, strips, trays, and other products found in the local drugstore are often incapable of providing noticeable results. Instead, Dr. Mark W. Johnson encourages patients in the community to consider the advantages of professional teeth whitening services. With professional-strength gels and products, patients will see dramatic results in a much shorter period, making treatments worth the investment.
Albuquerque, NM area patients who are interested in brightening their smile, will want to ask our team of professionals about the options available. We offer two types, including our in-office teeth whitening with Opalescence Boost and our take-home whitening trays and gels for private use. Because of the strength of the ingredients, these products are not available over the counter and can only be obtained by a dental professional.
Patients who utilize the take-home whitening kits will receive custom trays made from impressions of their natural teeth. These are sent home with special gels that have hydroxyl radicals to whiten discolored teeth. Optimum results are achieved within 10-14 days, but some patients will notice changes in just a few days of use. Additionally, patients who want faster whitening might be interested in the Opalescence Boost treatment available in-office. The ingredients fluoride and nitrate penetrate deep into the natural tooth enamel to lift stains in less than an hour and do not require patients to sit underneath a lamp or heat to achieve their desired results. Opalescence Boost also strengthens the enamel, making it a great choice for patients with sensitive teeth!
