Skowhegan dentist helps patients choose the best way to whiten their teeth

teeth whitening solution from Dr. Mohammed Imam in Skowhegan, Maine

Often, the fastest and most effective way to improve the appearance of your smile is with a whitening treatment. Many adults find that coffee, red wine, and pasta sauce has left their teeth discolored, and lifting those stains can dramatically improve their smile and confidence. Drs. Imam and Kahn of the Maine Center for Dental Medicine in Skowhegan helps his patients determine which whitening treatment is best.

In office teeth whitening

For patients who are looking for speed, in-office teeth whitening is often the best choice. With this treatment, patients achieve dramatic results in a single appointment while they relax or listen to music. First, a whitening gel is carefully applied to the teeth and then it is activated using a special light or laser. The dental team monitors the patient so the result can be completely customized.

At home whitening treatment

For those who prefer a more gradual approach or want to whiten in the privacy of their own home, Drs. Imam and Kahn offers at-home whitening. In this case, the patient will use a customized tray to ensure a perfect fit, fill it with a professional grade whitening gel, and use the tray each day for approximately two weeks. The patient can multitask and whiten their teeth while reading, answering email, or performing light household activities. Because the trays are a custom fit and the gel is supplied by the dentist, patients can be sure that the gel is placed properly on the teeth and leads to less sensitivity following the treatment.

Professional help leads to better results

While many drugstores offer whitening products, these often fail to live up to their claims and can cause damage to the teeth. By working with a dentist, patients can safely and effectively achieve the results they want.
