The most convenient and safest way to really get whiter teeth: At-home teeth whitening in Maryville, TN

From pastes to pens to strips and even lipsticks, there is a mind-boggling number of products that claim to whiten teeth. As you may have discovered, these products either fail to live up to those promises, or they make a barely noticeable change in the color of your teeth. Fortunately, dentists like Dr. Proffitt have powerful whitening products that work to lift stains effectively and safely from your teeth. At-home whitening prescribed by Proffitt Dentistry in Maryville, TN, is convenient, comfortable, straightforward, and stress-free.

Whiter teeth in 1, 2, 3 steps 

First, we will decide if you are a good candidate for professional teeth whitening. To do so, Dr. Proffitt will examine your teeth and gums. He will ensure that your mouth is healthy and that your discoloration is responsive to whitening treatment. Some types of discoloration, such as intrinsic tetracycline stains, are more stubborn to remove than stains caused by the cumulative effects of coffee drinking or smoking. 

Second, if we determine that at-home whitening is right for you, we will make a dental appliance to fit your mouth. This custom appliance is known as a whitening tray. Yes, you can buy whitening trays or kits at the store. However, these off-the-shelf kits are not made for your mouth. They tend to be uncomfortable, and whitening gel in loose trays can shift or leak. This situation puts you at increased risk of developing irritation or other tissue damage or getting uneven whitening treatment results. 

Third, you will wear the trays from the comfort of home or from wherever you are! You don’t have to visit our office to get a whiter smile. Our treatments fit in well with your active lifestyle. We’ll show you exactly how to fill the tray with the whitening gel and when to wear it. Over several days (and when worn as directed), your teeth will become gradually and noticeably whiter.
