If you take a look at the dental aisle of any store, you will find row after row of products that will claim to give you the bright, white smile you have always wanted. While there is no shortage of products, the simple truth is that the best way to whiten your teeth is with a treatment from your dentist. Whitening treatments and products provided by a dentist are not only effective, but safe for you to use. Furthermore, your treatment will be customized to give you optimum results. At Parker Dental, our dentist, Dr. Wes Parker, offers laser teeth whitening in Jacksonville, North Carolina, as one of our cosmetic options.
The first step is to meet with Dr. Parker to see if a laser whitening treatment is right for you. If you are a good candidate, we will take steps to protect the soft tissues of your mouth and de-sensitize your teeth. The laser is used in combination with a bleaching gel that contains hydrogen peroxide. The treatment usually takes an hour and in some cases, more than one visit may be required. The dentist may also have you follow a home-bleaching routine to maintain your smile’s new color.
