Are big things in your future and you need to look your best? Maybe you’re about to walk down the aisle in your fairytale wedding? Or maybe you’re finally up for that promotion you’ve been after, working hard for years? Maybe you have an interview scheduled for the job of your dreams coming up? But what if your pearly whites aren’t so pearly or white anymore? You may be self-conscious about smile and that may hold you back from smiling when you should. If this sounds like you, teeth whitening treatment may be just what the dentist ordered to transform your smile and let your smile shine!
You may have faithfully cared for your teeth all your life but natural discoloration of your teeth will still occur over time. This is a natural process that can also be hastened along by other factors including smoking, chewing tobacco or daily consumption of coffee, tea, cola or red wine. Using certain prescription medications can also contribute to tooth discoloration.
Dentists recommend following a regimen of brushing twice daily and flossing daily. Sticking to this schedule for your oral hygiene can slow this process down and help your smile stay brighter and healthier longer but, it cannot reverse this discoloration. Your local drug store or big box store probably sell whitening toothpastes and over-the-counter whitening kits. These can help reverse some of the damage but the results are limited.
This is where Dr. Tom Trinkner of Columbia SC comes to the rescue with professional teeth whitening! Dr. Trinkner offers his patients the choice of in-office or at home treatment or sometimes both. Our whitening treatments are specially formulated to be safe, reliable and minimize sensitivity which is a common complaint of other teeth whitening solutions.
Our bleaching products can produce dramatic results quickly. Our easy and convenient take-home treatments can be done on your schedule in the comfort of your own home over the course of several weeks and will usually brighten teeth by several shades!
Dr. Trinkner will customize the treatment based on your dental goals, needs and budget.. The process begins with a regular cleaning. Dr. Trinkner will then consult with you to plan the treatment that will work best for you.
Take-home treatments use bleaching trays which are custom-fitted to your mouth to whiten your teeth at your convenience and comfort at home. These treatments can provide great results alone or can be used as follow-up treatments to an in-office whitening procedure, helping your results last longer. Scheduling regular cleanings at your dentist’s office and brushing and flossing as recommended will also help your keep your results longer.
