Why Choose Teeth Whitening from Robison Dental?
Teeth whitening, by definition, is a process through which teeth appear whiter. Although this is a simple definition, the actual teeth whitening process is not so simple. Most teeth whitening products fall into one of two categories; bleaching products which contain peroxides that actually remove deep staining and change the color of the enamel, and non-bleaching whitening products which contain mild abrasives that remove surface stains only. Teeth whitening toothpastes fall into the latter category, and cannot effectively whiten discolored enamel. Most over- the-counter teeth whitening products do contain bleaching agents; however, they are heavily diluted. Therefore it can take several weeks of daily use before you will be able to seen any significant change in the color of your teeth. Your best option is to make a teeth whitening appointment with Dr. Robison. Dr. Robison offers fast and professional in-office teeth whitening, and easy to use take-home teeth whitening with custom fitted whitening trays. Either option will get your teeth several shades whiter in a fraction of the time it would take with any DIY product. In addition, Dr. Robison can ensure that your teeth and gums stay healthy and are not irritated by your whitening treatment.
