It’s a frustrating fact that some of our favorite indulgences—coffee, cola, red wine and tobacco—are the most damaging to our teeth, eroding the enamel and leaving teeth discolored and often sensitive.
So what do you do when your smile’s lost its luster and you wince at the thought of applying a bleaching agent to your teeth? The truth is, sensitivity is a possibility with any teeth-whitening product, whether it’s over-the-counter or administered by a dental professional.
One option is Sinsational Smiles, a teeth-whitening system administered by Dr. Strober that uses a hydrogen peroxide-based whitening gel and a special lamp to penetrate and lighten surface stains. The procedure requires three, 15-minute sessions and is completed within a one-hour sitting, during which you can watch TV, listen to music or just relax.
The Sinsational Smiles system achieves immediate results that would require weeks of treatment with most over-the-counter products, and most patients report continued lightening—up to 10 shades total—over the course of a few weeks following the in-office treatment.
If you live in the San Diego, La Jolla or Coronado, California, areas and want to learn if teeth whitening with Sinsational Smiles or a take-home bleaching product are safe options for you, contact the experienced team at Strober Dental.
