Professional Teeth Whitening in Richton, MS

teeth whitening richton msA bright, sparkling smile is an indicator of good dental health.

But it’s also more than that.

A beautiful smile also provides clues to others about your self-esteem, your confidence, your age, your self-care, and much, much more. We live in a society that values these qualities, and if your smile isn’t as bright as it could be, you might be making an impression you never intended.

At Richton Dental Care, we have a simple, affordable solution – professional teeth whitening!

Customized Take-Home Whitening for Your Convenience

When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Darby to discuss teeth whitening, he’ll present you with your options so that you can choose the whitening solution that will work best for you. While over-the-counter whitening kits are an option, many patients who come to us have already tried these and found that they did not get the results they were hoping for.

We recommend our customized take-home whitening system. You’ll receive trays made from impressions of your own teeth for the best possible fit and results, along with prescription strength whitening gel. We’ll show you how to use the system, which you can do in the privacy of your home, at your own convenience, and, of course, we’ll be here to answer any questions you might have.

Getting the Best Results from Your Whitening Treatment

teeth whitening richton msWe recommend that you have your teeth professionally cleaned prior to whitening. This will remove traces of plaque and tartar that can mar your results or cause them to look uneven. If you are overdue for a cleaning, you might find that a professional cleaning is all it takes to significantly improve the appearance of your smile!

If it’s time for a cleaning, give us a call and we’ll find a time that works for you.

Follow our directions for the best results. Using excess whitening gel will not whiten your teeth faster, but it may increase sensitivity or cause the gel to ooze out from the trays and get onto sensitive soft tissue.

What about Drugstore Whitening Kits?

So why do kits from the drugstore usually give such disappointing results?

These kits are designed for a mass market, and since they are meant to be used without the supervision of a dentist, the strength of the whitening product is limited. Instead of customized trays that keep the gel where it belongs and a professional strength whitener, over-the-counter kits use “one size fits all” trays and gel with a very low concentration of whitener. It’s easy to see why the results aren’t great.

Additionally, some drug store products rely on abrasives to scratch away surface stains. These abrasives can be bad for your enamel and actually result in more staining in the future. Professional products work differently. They penetrate the enamel to remove deep, set-in stains.
