Unhappy with your off-white smile? Have you tried at-home dental treatments and still see the stains?
Professional teeth whitening is the best way to whiten your smile quickly and safely.
Dr. Damien Armstrong and his team of Chattanooga, TN, dental professionals can give you a whiter smile you'll be proud to show off.
What Is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a common type of dentistry that can remove years of stains to create a whiter, brighter smile. There are several different types of whitening options, from whitening toothpaste and over-the-counter trays to professional in-office treatments. Although the low prices and accessibility of many over-the-counter whitening products can be tempting, the fact is that professional whitening is safer and far more effective.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Things we eat and drink daily like coffee, tea, or wine can have a lasting impact on the appearance of your smile. Having stained teeth can make you feel self-conscious and prevent you from smiling in front of anyone. Tooth whitening not only gives you whiter teeth, but it can boost your confidence and give you a smile you'll want people to notice.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Virtually anyone with all their permanent teeth who would like a brighter, more dazzling smile is a candidate for teeth whitening. And because our Opalescence® treatment achieves incredible results in a relatively short amount of time, it's a fantastic treatment for brides and grooms-to-be, or anyone who needs to look their best for an upcoming event. Reach out to our downtown dentist office in Chattanooga, TN, to see if teeth whitening is right for you.
The Beauty of Opalescence
This is a form of whitening that uses a prescription-strength bleaching gel prescribed by your dentist. The gel consists of carbamide peroxide, which contains hydrogen peroxide and is a highly effective whitening solution. The gel and customized trays will be sent home with you to wear overnight.

"If you are looking for a great dental practice in Chattanooga, look no further!"
If you are looking for a great dental practice in Chattanooga, look no further! I typically avoid the dentist because I hate it so much. I finally decided to go and decided to check out River City Dentistry. Their location on Cowart St. is beautiful, super clean, and easy to find. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful...View On Google

Quitting tobacco use is always advisable, and it is especially effective in keeping your teeth bright and healthy.
Coffee and Tea
If you drink coffee and tea, try and do so in a single session, rather than drinking coffee throughout the day, and brush when you're done.
If you drink red wine, don't run straight to your toothbrush afterward, because the acidic properties of wine temporarily weaken tooth enamel. Instead, try chasing your next glass with broccoli or cauliflower, which can gently scrub your teeth, or having a drink of seltzer, which can prevent red wine stains on your teeth.
Over-the-Counter Versus Professional Whitening
There are several options for over-the-counter whitening treatments, and your dentist will typically recommend the use of a whitening toothpaste after your professional whitening. However, some at-home whitening tools can be a risk to your oral health, like bleaching trays with too much hydrogen peroxide that can damage your enamel. Some people start these OTC treatments not knowing that they are actually allergic to the active ingredients. Other OTC products just don't provide the results you were hoping for. By seeing a dental professional, you can rest assured that you will get the whitening results you want quickly and safely. Let our Chattanooga team of dentistry professionals give you the white smile you've always wanted.
