What Is the Importance of Professional Teeth Whitening?

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular procedure, that removes yellowness from the tooth, and gives you a dazzlingly bright smile. It is hard to find anyone who does not want a sheen smile. There are many countless ways to whiten your teeth. DIY home remedies are more popular. However, they cause more harm than good. Getting your teeth whitened professionally does not only prove to be more effective, but it is also safer and cost-effective too.

Why Is Going To A Professional For Teeth Whitening Preferable? 

For A Beautiful White Smile

A clean and beautiful smile is also associated with one’s confidence and self-esteem. We tend to be more self-conscious when our teeth are yellowish no matter how much we clean them. Teeth whitening will make you feel comfortable and confident. You will be less worried about judgment from others. This boosts your self-confidence and gives way to a better social life.

Discolored and yellow teeth are a part of the natural aging process. Teeth whitening is said to be more effective in making you look younger, as compared to pills, serums, and creams. Various studies have shown that after the procedure you can look upto 20% younger. 

Better Than Store-Bought Products

The result achieved by professionals is unarguably better than over-the-counter products. Teeth whitening strips can make teeth look whiter, but they work only on the front six teeth. The rest of your teeth are untouched. Whitening toothpaste is widely used, however, they show little difference. 

Professional teeth whitening is a much safer option. These whitening treatments are highly effective and take only one session of an hour to complete. Dentists get through intensive training and use specialized equipment just for this procedure. It is highly effective and affordable, with proven results.

Better Oral Hygiene

It is essential to maintain a good oral routine for your oral health. Sometimes brushing and flossing are not enough. It is physically not possible to clean all nooks & crannies of your mouth. Professional teeth whitening procedures include cleaning your gums, and the rest of your mouth too. Dentists use active ingredients like peroxide, a mixture of hydrogen and carbamide, to whiten teeth. Peroxide has shown positive results when used to clean the patient’s mouth. 

Why You Should Avoid DIY Teeth Whitening Solutions?

It is a new-age trend to find do-it-yourself solutions for all sorts of problems, whether it be health or beauty. There are endless home remedies for teeth whitening on the internet. Most of them show the use of baking soda and lemon.

The chemical reaction created by these two ingredients is not only harmful to your oral health but to gut health too. The acid in lemon juice can erode the enamel layer present on your teeth. This makes them vulnerable to decay and other problems. Baking soda acts like a scrub. Brushing your teeth with these ingredients may lighten your teeth, but only temporarily. They cause irritation on the gum and tongue too. 

You may choose these remedies as the ingredients are readily available, and significantly cheaper. Professional teeth whitening procedures are costlier, but they do not remove the enamel layer & are highly effective. You only need one session to get teeth whitening done in Marietta. These treatments last upto a longtime if you take aftercare of your teeth. However, it does depend on a person’s dental care practices.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
