Dr. McCarthy And Dr. Gallo Offer Teeth Whitening in Andover, MA
For a non-invasive treatment that can add shades of brilliance to your smile, Dr. Francis R. McCarthy and Dr. Rosalia A. Gallo offer professional teeth whitening. Whether seeking to regain natural coloration or augment the tone of their dentition, Andover dentists, Dr. McCarthy and Dr. Gallo, offer teeth whitening tailored to help patients reach their aesthetic goals.
What Are The Benefits of Teeth Whitening?
Professional teeth whitening can serve most patients seeking a more natural sheen to their smile without altering the structure of teeth. There are a number of situations where dental staining can be addressed particularly well by teeth whitening. Patients whose teeth appear yellowed due to the normal wear of the outer layers can see improvement after whitening. Additionally, teeth whitening may minimize the stains that result from drinking coffee, tea, or wine as well as from smoking.
While effective, teeth whitening is not a permanent solution. To keep your teeth bright, Dr. McCarthy and Dr. Gallo will work with you to provide regular maintenance. It is also important to note that teeth whitening will not change the color of restorations such as fillings or crowns. Dr. McCarthy and Dr. Gallo may recommend replacing these to give a more consistent, natural appearance to your smile.
What Does Teeth Whitening Involve?
Our goal is to create the look of a naturally white smile. One of the more popular options offered by Andover Comprehensive Dental Care are take-home systems, personalized treatments that produce noticeable results. A key to the success of any teeth whitening system is the professional grade whitening agents used. To take full advantage of this powerful, yet non-abrasive solution, patients are provided with custom-fit whitening trays that securely hold the whitening agent on their teeth. Dr. McCarthy will provide you with proper care instructions for safe and effective at-home whitening. We also encourage regular follow-up visits at our Andover office to monitor progress as well as to assist with any issues that arise during treatment.
Starting with your first visit, Dr. McCarthy and Dr. Gallo will take impressions of your teeth in order to manufacture customized whitening trays that enable precise whitening solution application. Once the custom trays have been created, patients will return to our Andover practice to pick up their whitening system. One of the team members will explain how the system works and answer any questions you might have.
The amount of time you will wear your tray at home depends on the degree of discoloration and your unique smile goals. This ranges from twice daily wear for 30 minutes to wear the trays overnight for a period of a few weeks. Some sensitivity is normal after whitening and should subside gradually afterwards. Contact Andover Comprehensive Dental Care immediately if the sensation does not diminish over time.
