Whether you’re planning a festive photoshoot this year or simply want to look your best for holiday parties, don’t let discolored or stained teeth keep you from sharing your smile this holiday season. Professional teeth whitening can add sparkle to your smile and boost your confidence.
Mehrnoosh Darj, DDS, offers both in-office and take-home whitening options so you can get your smile holiday-ready. Here are the advantages of professional teeth whitening offered at Dr. Darj Dental in El Paso, Texas, and why it's the perfect choice for achieving a dazzling smile just in time for the holidays.
Why choose professional teeth whitening treatments
While there are countless over-the-counter whitening products available, not all products are created equally. At best, OTC products produce minimal results over several weeks, and at worst, DIY remedies can damage your teeth.
Professional whitening offers several compelling advantages:
Professional teeth whitening is more efficient than over-the-counter options
There’s no way to deny it: Professional-grade treatments are more efficient and more effective. That’s because they use stronger bleaching agents than OTC versions.
Dr. Darj uses an innovative in-office treatment that combines the power of LED lights with the bleaching agent. This combination can brighten your smile by up to eight shades in just one visit. While these results can vary, it’s still far better than what over-the-counter options can do.
Even the professional take-home option is stronger than the OTC options.
Professional teeth whitening is safer than OTC options
During your in-office teeth whitening treatment, our team takes care to protect your lips and gums from the whitening agent before your treatment. Afterward, we apply a post-treatment gel to reduce sensitivity.
Professional care means you’re matched with the right treatment
Dr. Darj also makes sure that teeth whitening is right for you. For example, if you have a crown or a permanently stained tooth that doesn’t respond to bleaching, Dr. Darj can recommend other solutions to brighten your smile, such as veneers.
Long-lasting and even results
The results of professional teeth whitening tend to last longer and are more even than those achieved with over-the-counter kits. This means you can enjoy a brighter smile well into 2024!
What to expect from teeth whitening
Professional teeth whitening is a straightforward, noninvasive process that starts with a consultation. Dr. Darj assesses your oral health and determines whether the treatment will achieve the results you want. She details the advantages of in-office treatment or take-home trays.
If you move forward with in-office treatments, the next step is to prepare your mouth, and protect your lips, and gums before applying the whitening gel to your teeth. The whitener contains a safe and effective bleaching agent.
A specialized LED light activates the whitening effects of the gel and remains in place for three blocks of 15 minutes during the treatment session. Afterward, you receive the post-treatment gel, and that’s it!
