SOUTH WEYMOUTH, MA
Smiling shouldn’t be painful, right? Yet for some people whose teeth are not quite as bright as they’d like, picture time at family functions or during the holidays can be a source of high anxiety. While over-the-counter whiteners can offer modest results, most people are looking for a brighter smile but are fearful of the process and the price tag.
Dr. Richard Wolfert offers teeth whitening at his South Weymouth dental practice, Smiles by the Toothboss, located at 1121 Main Street. “Who doesn’t want whiter teeth, particularly if you’re a big coffee or soda drinker?” said Dr. Wolfert. “With the new technology of teeth whitening out today, dentists can safely whiten teeth without any change or damage to the tooth structure.”
The two main methods of professional whitening are tray whitening and in office whitening. Tray whitening is when a custom tray is made for the patient after an impression is taken, then a supply of whitening gel is given to the patient and he/she will wear the tray for a few hours a day (techniques differ) for a period of time until an acceptable result is achieved. Sensitivity of the teeth is a normal complication of this method of whitening and is transitional.
In office whitening on the other hand is the most effective method of whitening. There are a few different ways that are available for example, Crest White Strips, Britesmile, Zoom, or Laser whitening. The process is similar with all these methods and you can have your teeth whitened in one session with great results.
How much teeth whitening costs depends on the treatment and the dentist. At Smiles By The Toothboss, that can range from $250 to $500 and interest-free payment options are available through CareCredit. But Dr. Wolfert contends price should be a secondary consideration when whitening your teeth.
“Having a dentist whiten your teeth ensures that you use the procedure that works best for your mouth and gets you the best result,” said Dr. Wolfert.
