Are you tired of feeling insecure about your discolored teeth? Have over-the-counter whitening products failed to give you the results you want? You are not out of options. We offer the solution you need to restore a bright smile with teeth whitening in Green Hills. Using the Sinsational whitening system, your teeth will become several shades whiter after just one appointment.

Causes of Stained Teeth

You cannot avoid tooth discoloration because it is a natural part of the aging process. As your enamel becomes thinner, it causes more of your dentin to be visible. Your dentin has a yellowish hue which is why your teeth start to turn yellow.

In addition to age, there are other factors that can influence the severity of the discoloration, such as poor oral hygiene habits, darkly pigmented foods and drinks, or smoking.

No matter the reason behind your dull smile, we can turn back the hands of time with Sinsational teeth whitening in Green Hills.

Benefits of In-Office Teeth Whitening

Over-the-counter whitening products may be convenient, but they will not provide you with the results you want. They do not contain professional-grade whitening agents, so they cannot deeply penetrate your enamel. As a result, they offer little improvement in the appearance of stains.

In-office teeth whitening is the only way to achieve noticeable results that last. The Sinsational whitening system is proven to work in as little as 20 minutes without causing any tooth sensitivity. As the most successful whitening system in the country, you can rest assured your smile will be several shades brighter after just one appointment.

A pre-filled silicone tray conforms to the shape of your mouth. This allows you to enjoy a comfortable treatment while also ensuring the even distribution of the whitening agent for consistent results. An LED light activates the whitening gel to disrupt the discoloration molecules. At the end of the treatment, your smile will be noticeably brighter with results that last with the right aftercare.

How Long Does It Last?

Your new smile can stay bright for several years. To protect your investment, it is best to brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes and floss every night before going to bed. You want to avoid anything that may cause your teeth to stain, such as smoking or using tobacco. In addition, limit your consumption of darkly pigmented foods and drinks, like coffee, berries, or tea. If you cannot skip your morning cup of coffee, brush your teeth right away or rinse your mouth with water. If you notice your teeth starting to darken, we can provide you with a maintenance kit.

How Much Brighter Will They Get?

On average, your cosmetic dentist in Green Hills can get your teeth 2 to 5 shades whiter using the Sinsational whitening system. Be aware, it will have little to no effect on changing the color of your restorations.

Understanding the Cost of Teeth Whitening

If you want a quick and more affordable way to improve your smile, then professional teeth whitening may be the ideal solution for you. Even with the many benefits you can enjoy from this cosmetic treatment, you’ll want to know the overall price before committing to anything. Unless we’re able to perform a thorough evaluation of your oral health, it’ll be nearly impossible for us to provide an exact estimate of what you can expect to pay. For this reason, you’ll want to schedule an initial consultation so we can discuss the overall price and your alternative financing options. Until then, here’s what you should consider about the cost of teeth whitening in Green Hills.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Teeth Whitening

Every teeth whitening procedure will be completely personalized to address the specific dental needs of each patient. When developing your price estimate, our team will consider the following factors:

  • The root cause of your dental discoloration (i.e., extrinsic or intrinsic stains)
  • The severity of your tooth discoloration
  • Any necessary preparatory treatments (like fillings or gum disease therapy)

Types of Teeth Whitening: What Do They Cost?

There is a multitude of teeth whitening options for you to pick from. Some of the more affordable products such as whitening gels, strips, and toothpaste can be found at your local grocery store, and they can range around $20-$40. You can even go for store-bought whitening trays, which can sometimes be priced at about $100. For more powerful treatment, you can opt for an in-office whitening procedure, which may go as high as several hundred dollars.

Inexpensive vs. Professional Teeth Whitening

It may seem convenient to choose a store-bought whitening product if you want to save money. However, it’s important to remember that the quality of the treatment is typically reflected by the price. While whitening kits from your local grocery store may be more affordable, it’s only because they use diluted ingredients that won’t provide the dazzling results you’re looking for. They’re also not custom-made for your unique smile, meaning there’s plenty of room for error or complications. Since you might need to use the products repeatedly to brighten your teeth, you can end up spending way more than anticipated.

With in-office teeth whitening, our team will utilize professional-grade bleaching agents to create the beautiful effects you’ve always wanted. We’ll also tailor your treatment to address your unique pearly whites, meaning you’ll be less likely to expect any gum irritation or sensitivity from your procedure. While the price may be higher upfront, your results can last several months to a couple of years before needing touchups!

Options for Making Teeth Whitening Affordable

Like most cosmetic dental services, teeth whitening may not be covered by dental insurance due to being considered “non-essential” for oral health. That said, we offer other ways for you to make an already cost-effective treatment more affordable. You can try signing up for our VIP Membership Club where you can enjoy a 20% discount on all services. We’re also partnered with third-party financiers like LendingClub and CareCredit which can help you split up the overall cost of your treatments into monthly payments with little to no interest. Feel free to contact us to see if you’re eligible for these options!

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Do you still have questions about getting professional teeth whitening in Nashville? For your convenience, we’ve answered some common questions that we receive from our patients below.

How can I make my results last longer?

After investing time and money into teeth whitening in Green Hills, it makes sense that you’d want to do everything you could to make the results last as long as possible. This treatment’s results aren’t meant to last forever, and dental staining is an unfortunate, naturally-occurring issue that everybody faces. However, with the proper precautionary measures in place, you can enjoy your brightened smile for years to come. Here are a few tips to keep your smile whiter:

  • Keep up with your dental hygiene routine
  • Visit your dentist every six months for a checkup and cleaning
  • Maintain a nutritious diet
  • Quit bad oral habits such as using tobacco and nail-biting
  • Touch-up your results

If  you have any questions or notice that your teeth are becoming discolored again, don’t hesitate to contact our office. Our team will be more than happy to give you some tips to help preserve your results.

Will whitening my teeth make them sensitive?

Over-the-counter whitening kits often contain ingredients that aren’t considered safe to use in your mouth, which is why most store-bought products aren’t approved by the ADA. A common side-effect from using these is dental sensitivity, caused by enamel erosion. This can increase patients’ risks of forming issues such as decay.

When you visit Green Hill Dental Center for treatment, you can rest assured that our ingredients are completely safe for your smile and won’t put your teeth in harm’s way. The teeth whitening system we use for our in-office treatment has been approved by the ADA, meaning it has been tested and proven to be safe. Typically, our patients experience little to no dental sensitivity afterward, however, if you do, you can rest assured that it’s not due to enamel deterioration. 

Is teeth whitening bad for my oral health?

Store-bought teeth whitening kits are unpredictable when it comes to how they affect your oral health. That’s why we highly recommend visiting a professional cosmetic dentist for treatment. We only use products that won’t compromise your teeth or gums in the process of achieving beautiful and noticeable results.

If I have a dental restoration, can I still get my teeth whitened?

Unfortunately, we don’t recommend patients with dental restorations getting their teeth whitened because crowns, bridges, and fillings aren’t porous and won’t bleach like teeth will. This would cause tooth-colored restorations to stick out next to your newly brightened teeth.
