Put the Pearl Back into Your Pearly Whites
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that puts you in control of your own dental destiny. That’s because you have so many choices at Watterson Family Dentistry at our Jackson, MI dental office!Dr. Scott Watterson Taks About Effective Teeth Whitening Treatment Read Transcript
Tooth whitening options are available across the board whether they're professionally done or pick them up at the local drugstore or Meijer or Walgreens, whatever it might be. What we offer in our office would be several different options, the first being take-home whitening. That's kind of the entry level where people start. It's effective. It takes a little bit longer, and the results can be very, very nice. It's controlled by you meaning that when you are doing that at home, it's really dependent on your compliance and how often you're doing that.
Another option is to have that done in the office and we offer Zoom Whitening. And so, that's where you would come in and sit in a chair for an hour, an hour and a half and have your teeth whitened during that time. I really feel that the best results are when you have a combination of the two. Start off with some at-home whitening, go through the Zoom process, and because you started with the at-home whitening, you have that to follow up with after the Zoom Whitening as you need to touch things up and continue to keep your smile bright and white.
I often get asked the question, “Why can't I just find something at Meijer or at Walgreens or a local drugstore to whiten my teeth? Won't that do the same thing?” I tell people that you can do that but it's not going to be as effective as what we can provide here in our office simply because of the concentration and the dosing that we are able to provide, professionally, is much higher.
It'd be very similar to you having a really severe pain and saying, “Well, I'll just take an aspirin or a Tylenol over-the-counter,” as opposed to going to a doctor and getting a prescription for a more potent pain medication. The concept would be similar and our objective is that we are able to also monitor the whitening process if we're doing it professionally in our office and/or helping you in the process of doing that at home. We're able to help you understand what to expect.
And if for any reason if a problem were to arise, we'd be able to help with that remedy rather than ... if you're doing that at home on your own with over-the-counter products, not necessarily certain what the answers would be for you and how to control that.
Your choices for whitening, both from popular brand Philips Zoom, include:
- An intensive in-office treatment that leaves your teeth up to 10 shades brighter
- Two different kinds of home treatments, one designed for two short whitening sessions a day and the other for a single longer session
Some of our patients opt for an in-office treatment followed by home treatments to maintain their whiter, brighter smile. Watterson Family Dentistry in Jackson, MI offer a special discount if you decide to do this!
No matter which treatments you use, you’ll receive customized trays and whitening gel that is far more effective than the products sold in drugstores.
