Dental Whitening in Nicholasville
Not to be confused with bleaching (which actually improves the color of teeth beyond their original state) whitening simply removes built up dirt and chemicals from the teeth to restore them to a white appearance that they originally had. During even minor chewing, the enamel covering of your teeth stays in place while millions of microscopic cracks form on the surface.
It is within these cracks that dirt and debris can be trapped - contributing to a dull appearance of the overall tooth. Teeth whitening can remove this dirt from the cracks to restore the teeth to a whiter appearance. Almost any cause of teeth staining can be reversed through the use of teeth whitening.
Jessamine Dental offers a take-home whitening kit that includes reusable trays that specifically fit your teeth and a two week supply of whitening material. A take-home kit allows you to use the whitening material at your convenience, provides the best and most sustainable results, and can be used every other day to decrease tooth sensitivity. Once the trays are made, refill whitening material can be purchased for $25 at your 6 month recare and hygiene exam. This is less than the cost of over-the-counter whitening strips as well as causes less tooth and gum sensitivity.
