Although there are numerous over-the-counter teeth whitening products available, none match the speed, comfort and dramatic results of professional teeth whitening treatments. Glendale, Arizona, cosmetic dentist Dr. Donald Wilcox offers in-office whitening, which can provide you with noticeably brighter teeth in a single, one-hour treatment. This procedure is simple, painless and perfect for busy individuals seeking to reverse signs of discoloration. Professional teeth whitening treatments offer a number of benefits over teeth whitening kits sold at retailers. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products require regular use over a span of months to achieve results, while professional whitening can lighten your smile by several shades with one application. Over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments can also be messy, because the trays they use to deliver the whitening agent are designed with a one-size-fits-all mentality. This can cause uneven whitening as well as some discomfort for those who suffer from sensitive gums and/or teeth. Professional teeth whitening uses custom-made trays that conform to your individual bite. The whitening solution is also carefully applied by Dr. Wilcox to ensure even dispersal and to eliminate contact with your teeth and gums. If you live in the Phoenix, Scottsdale, Peoria or Glendale, Arizona, areas and would like to learn if professional teeth whitening can restore vibrancy to your smile, please contact Desert Smiles to schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Wilcox.
