When the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry conducted a poll to determine what improvement people would most like to make to their smile, the number-one answer was “whiter and brighter teeth.” For many patients, professional teeth whitening at our Greenville office is an easy way to achieve this goal.

In-office teeth whitening is very different from using the whitening products you might find on shelves at the drug store. Throughout your visit our dentists and staff will be supervising the treatment to make sure you’re comfortable and the results align with your cosmetic goals.

Because in-office treatment involves professional oversight, the whitening gel contains a stronger bleaching agent than what you could safely use at home. Patients often enjoy superior results with professional teeth whitening.

Before you start any type of teeth whitening treatment, though, there are several factors to keep in mind:

  • Do you have any cavities?
  • Do you experience tooth sensitivity?
  • Do you habitually smoke, drink coffee or tea, or eat rich foods?

Our Greenville dentists can help you prepare for teeth whitening based on the answers to these questions. We will perform a complete exam for oral health issues and repair any damaged or decayed teeth with a dental crown or other suitable restoration. We can also counsel you on the foods, beverages, and habits to modify or avoid for whiter teeth.

To find out if teeth whitening can help you enjoy a brighter smile, please contact Boles Ham Dixon & Boles online or call 252-291-2892 today. We are pleased to see patients from Greenville, NC, and other nearby communities.
