Take-Home Teeth Whitening

If you have good oral health and hygiene but your teeth are discolored from staining or certain medications, teeth whitening may be the perfect choice for you. The best way to determine if teeth whitening can help you is to call Smiles of Carolina today and schedule a consultation with Dr. Mark or Dr. Ko.

While over-the-counter whitening kits are cheaper than professional whitening, professional teeth whitening kits give better results in less time. The concentration of the whitening ingredient is higher in professional whitening kits, which means you can get more whitening in a shorter period of time. Additionally, professional whitening kits are customized so that the trays fit your mouth perfectly for more even coverage. Professional teeth whitening products also contain an added desensitizing ingredient to make teeth whitening comfortable even for those with sensitive teeth.

Call Smiles of Carolina today for a teeth whitening consultation with either Dr. Mark or Dr. Ko.
