What Makes Deep Teeth Bleaching Unique?
Teeth whitening products have come a long way in the last decade, and patients these days are demanding more of their whitening treatments than ever before. According to Foothill Smile Designs‘ Dr. Babak Djifroudi, a cosmetic dentist in Folsom, CA, patients who want the ultimate teeth whitening experience will generally opt for a treatment known as deep bleaching.
At his office in Folsom, CA, the cosmetic dentist frequently works with patients who say they tried over-the-counter whitening treatments, but were unhappy with the results. This type of reaction is not uncommon, explains Dr. Djifroudi, because the gels that companies are allowed to sell over-the-counter at drugstores and pharmacies have limited strength. In order to get access to the strongest possible bleaching products, patients really need to visit their dentists for in-office treatments.
Dr. Djifroudi says that people who have tried products like Crest Whitestrips and other over-the-counter gels without success are usually looking for the whitening treatment that will give them the biggest results in the least amount of time. Although he offers patients take home kits, which are far stronger than the kits people can buy in stores, Dr. Djifroudi says the single most effective option for people who are in a hurry to get rid of their dark teeth is always going to be the deep bleaching treatments that he offers in-office.
Of course, the home whitening kits that Dr. Djifroudi sells are already much stronger than the kits people can buy at their local drugstores – and in most cases, these professional kits work very well. The downside to the take home kits that patients can buy from a cosmetic dentist in Folsom, CA, is that they generally take between eight and 10 applications before the patient can expect to see the results he or she desires.
People who are in a hurry – either because they are inpatient by nature or because they have an important event such as a wedding or a prom to attend in a few days – are better suited for the in-office deep bleaching sessions that Dr. Djifroudi can provide. Patients who opt for in-office deep bleaching sessions can get the same result from one session that it takes patients with professional-grade take home kits eight to 10 sessions to achieve.
The downside to deep bleaching is that is does cost slightly more. Dr. Djifroudi is a cost-conscious cosmetic dentist in Folsom, CA, which is why he generally recommends that patients who are on a budget start out with the take home kits before trying out deep bleaching for the first time. People who try whitening their teeth at home and discover the take home kits are not strong enough can usually save some money on the in-office treatments by re-using the custom trays that their cosmetic dentist has already created for them.
