The Reasons for Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is not just performed for cosmetic reasons. You might wish to have teeth whitening to reduce the discoloration related to a prescribed medication. Prescription medications such as Tetracycline can discolor teeth if it was prescribed at a young age. Another reason you may want to have teeth whitening include reducing the look of Fluorosis, which is from too much Fluoride treatment as your teeth were developing. This condition leaves large white or yellow lines on your teeth that can be reduced with teeth whitening. What is excellent about teeth whitening is that it is an easy, non-invasive treatment that can be done quickly and efficiently at Karmazin Dental.
If you have discolored or stained teeth you may feel embarrassed by their appearance. Consulting with us can be a life-changing event for you by returning the perceived value in your smile with healthy teeth and gums.
How Teeth Whitening Works
Your teeth whitening treatment will always begin with a proper professional cleaning of your teeth. We will then make an impression of your teeth so we can make custom trays that fit your teeth perfectly. The primary benefit of having the treatment supervised by us versus doing it at home is that the concentration of the hydrogen peroxide bleaching ingredient is considerably higher than the retail products.
Using these personalized trays allows for the best possible results. The over-the-counter teeth whitening systems also just have generic, one-size-fits-all trays, which also contributes to less impressive results.
If you have porcelain crowns, it might be necessary to replace them if your newly whitened teeth no longer match the crown. We will discuss all these factors before any treatment begins. It is always best to have all the information you need to make informed decisions about your oral health. Teeth whitening is not just a cosmetic procedure, it can improve oral health just like other dental procedures.
It's a Team Thing. Here at Karmazin Dental, we invest heavily in recruitment of “A+” team members. Everyone on Team Karmazin has unparallel talent and an ongoing commitment to continuing education. No matter who you see at your appointment, you can be assured that you will be met with a wealth of experience and knowledge not to mention, unequaled customer service.
Not Insurance Driven. The restrictions and limitations that dental insurance puts on its members and Dentists is continuously changing and it is not always for the betterment of the patient. Our focus at Karmazin Dental is to provide patients with the best course of treatment for them, period. For patients without dental insurance, we offer and in house membership plan, which gives the power BACK to our patients. By removing the restrictions of what insurance says they will or will not cover, patients get to spend their money the way they want.
Our philosophy is

Growth: Always in ALL – Ways
Gratitude: Our patients provide EVERYTHING

Integrity to the Core: Do what we say and say what we think.
Professional Teeth Whitening versus At Home Whitening
Working with Karmazin Dental to whiten your teeth is the ideal approach. While over-the-counter teeth whitening solutions will provide improvements, having our team perform teeth whitening treatment is the most efficient way to achieve the results you desire. If teeth whitened at-home is essential for you, Karmazin Dental can also offer an at-home component or kit that can be used under our supervision. Working with us to have teeth whitening can also provide a level of comfort to you if you are concerned with tooth sensitivity or even any side effects. You can experience sensitive teeth, gums, and a tingling in your mouth with teeth whitening.
Following your teeth whitening treatment at Karmazin Dental, you could experience tooth sensitivity. We will recommend that you reduce and monitor your intake of coffee, tea, colas, red wine, and citrus, berries, and tomatoes for a few days while the teeth whitening sets in. It is also advantageous to reduce the consumption of these beverages and foods anyway because they will wear away the enamel quicker, which will then reduce the positive results of future teeth whitening treatments and increase the need for other dental treatments.
Proper brushing and flossing must be continued, and your regular six-month checkups are essential to maintain the success of your teeth whitening procedure and to perform any touch-ups. If you have any questions about whether teeth whitening is for you, call for a consultation. Teeth whitening is easy and quick and will provide you with an immediate boost in your self-esteem.
