Hello again Monroe! Welcome back to the ongoing dental health blog of the Bayou Dental Group. 2016 is approaching at a furious pace. Have you begun to consider what your new year’s resolutions will be this year? Maybe you want to start using your gym membership a little more frequently, maybe you’d like to catch-up on your reading for the new year, or maybe you want to do something to improve your appearance.

Want an easy suggestion? Make a resolution you can keep, a resolution for a whiter and more beautiful smile. At the Bayou Dental Group in Monroe, LA, we’ve helped a countless number of patients achieve a more beautiful smile through our professional teeth whitening treatments. This small change can make a huge improvement in both your appearance and your self-confidence.

If you’re like most adults, your teeth may not be quite as white as you’d like. Even if you brush your teeth after every meal, stains and discolorations may still appear on your enamel. This is especially true as you get older because your teeth naturally become less stain resistant as they age.

Aside from age, any number of things can stain your teeth. At the Bayou Dental Group in Monroe, LA, we’ve helped patients who have stained teeth due to drinking red wine, eating a lot of brightly colored fruit, smoking cigarettes, taking certain prescription medications, and any number of other factors. It certainly is easy to stain your teeth. But the good news is that it is just as easy to whiten them!

At the Bayou Dental Group in Monroe, LA, we offer two types of professional teeth whitening treatments. If you like the idea of teeth whitening at home, we can provide you with a professional strength take-home whitening kit. Or if you want your teeth to be whitened in a hurry, we also offer Zoom! teeth whitening.

Zoom! is one of the most effective and highly regarded systems of professional teeth whitening on the market. Unlike certain over-the-counter teeth whitening products, Zoom! is formulated not to cause any pain or discomfort to your teeth or gums. In addition, Zoom! is much faster than over-the-counter teeth whitening products. In just one hour, your teeth whitening dentist at the Bayou Dental Group in Monroe, LA, will have your teeth whitened several shades.

If you’re interested in professional teeth whitening, we recommend having your teeth cleaned at the Bayou Dental Group prior to your teeth whitening appointment. A routine cleaning helps remove plaque and any other substances which would prevent our teeth whitening dentist from achieving maximum results for you.

During your teeth whitening appointment, we begin by covering your lips and gums to protect them from any irritation. We then apply the specially formulated Zoom! whitening gel to your teeth; this gel features a special blend of hydrogen peroxide to remove any stains or discolorations for your teeth.

We then expose your teeth to the Zoom! whitening lamp for 15 minutes at a time. During your appointment, you’re free to watch television, listen to music, or read. The appointment is completely painless. You’ll undergo a total of three 15 minute whitening sessions in your one hour appointment. Your teeth whitening dentist will then apply a special sensitivity-reducing fluoride to your teeth which will prevent you from experiencing any pain or discomfort from the treatment.
