Your smile is the first impression you make. What does yours say about you? Over time, our teeth become stained due to the foods and beverages we consume. A stained smile can make you look older than you really are. Whitening your teeth can be a great way to boost your confidence and improve your appearance.
Whitening is one of the most cost-effective cosmetic dental treatments available. Whether you are a coffee drinker or you eat foods that cause stains, one of our whitening systems at Helms Family Dentistry could benefit you.
Dr. Alec Helms offers both in-office and take-home professional dental whitening systems to improve the appearance of your smile. A consultation in our Huntsville dental office can help you determine which treatment is right for you.
In-Office Dental Whitening
In-office teeth whitening is great for patients who want instant results. For our in-office dental whitening system, Dr. Alec Helms uses the Kor Whitening Deep Bleaching System. Kor is one of the safest and most effective whitening systems on the market today.
Your procedure begins when you arrive in our office and we apply the whitening agent to your teeth. Then, the whitening agent is activated with a special light. The process is repeated three times for the most dramatic results. Kor Whitening lasts a long time and can be repeated at a later date, if necessary.
Take-Home Dental Whitening
For some of our patients, take-home teeth whitening is a more attractive option than our in-office whitening system because of its convenience and lower cost. You can whiten your teeth at your own pace and stop when you achieve the shade you desire.
Huntsville dentist Dr. Alec Helms uses the Venus Smile System, which can whiten your teeth up to eight shades in the comfort of your own home. Venus Smile also has a whitening maintenance system to keep your teeth white once your initial treatment is complete.
The Venus Smile System is completely safe for people who have good dental health. The number one side effect of any whitening system is sensitivity, but Venus Smile has different gel strengths to provide the most comfortable whitening experience for you.
We will take impressions in our office and create customized whitening trays just for you. Once you receive your custom whitening trays, you can choose to whiten your teeth during the day or at night, depending on what works best for you. Once you have achieved your desired shade, you can keep your trays for future touch-ups in case your teeth become stained again.
