One of the most common requests we get from our dental patients here at Ritchie Dental Group is whiter teeth. Cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening and veneers are safe, effective, and affordable.
Some patients might be interested in bleaching their teeth at home. There are many affordable teeth whitening products available at grocery or drug stores. Remember that even though you are doing this procedure at home, you should discuss it with your dentist and report any sensitivity that may occur.
In-office teeth bleaching can often be done in one visit. Patients who do in-office bleaching usually appreciate the care that is given to protect the soft tissues of the mouth from the bleaching agent. Any toothpaste that has an added polishing agent is considered a whitening toothpaste. Look for the American Dental Association (ADA)’s “Seal of Acceptance” when purchasing these.
If you’re interested in any of these whitening methods or a complete smile makeover, call Ritchie Dental Group at 830-693-8833. Our friendly and comprehensive staff will schedule a cosmetic dental consultation at your convenience.
We hope to hear from you soon!
