Last month, we had the opportunity to witness the best of humanity at the Olympic games in Rio.
Athletes from all over the world competed in hundreds of events. As always we saw amazing performances from individuals who are pushing the limits of what is possible with the human body.These are world-class athletes because of the years of effort they put into becoming stronger and faster.In that way, they have something in common with professional teeth whitening products. These whitening products are on another level compared to commercial products. This would explain why you need to go to dental professionals like our team at Sunrise Dental to get world-class teeth whitening.Setting Your GoalWorld-class competitors strive to do their best every time they step on the court, field, or track. They know the only way to stay at the top of their game is to be disciplined about the time and effort they put into developing their craft.And they work with a goal in mind. For many, that goal is a gold medal, a world record, or a national record.If you are interested in teeth whitening, your goal is simple. You want whiter teeth.To accomplish this, you need to remove stains that have built up on your teeth after years or decades of meals, snacks, and drinks.Those stains don’t happen overnight. They build slowly … with each glass of tea, each cup of coffee, each piece of cake, each barbecue sandwich … that we consume.The change happens so slowly that most of us never notice it while it’s happening. After a while, it becomes apparent that brushing our teeth isn’t going to be enough to remove those stains.Going For Your GoalTo achieve your goal, you need the right tools and equipment, and professional teeth whitening is going to do more for you than anything you will find in the toothpaste aisle.It’s sort of like the difference between the world-class runners we saw in the Olympics and the runners in a local road race. (This is not meant to disparage anyone who runs for exercise.)A world-class distance runner can run a 10K in a time that most people would be happy to complete a 5K race. The world class athlete can cover more ground in less time than an average person.Likewise, professional teeth whitening can remove more of the stains from your teeth than commercial whitening products. In many cases, the professional products can do this in less time, too.The absolute fastest way to whitening your smile is with our in-office whitening treatments. In as little as 20 minutes, Sinsational Smile® can visibly remove years worth of stains from your teeth.If you would prefer to do your teeth whitening at home at whatever time is convenient for you, then we can help with that, too.We can create custom-fitted whitening trays for you and give you Opalescence whitening gel that you can use at home. By using it as directed, you will see an improvement in the color of your smile, although this will take more time than our in-office treatment.Staying At The Top Of Your GameGetting a world-class smile is one thing. Keeping that smile is another.Once you have removed that stains from your teeth, we want to help you keep them looking their best.This starts with preventive care. You should continue to brush and floss to reduce your risk of developing tooth decay. You also should come to our office a couple time each year for professional cleanings.One of our dental hygienists can remove any plaque or tartar from your teeth and give them a polish to keep them looking nice. This also is a great time to give your smile a touch-up with another whitening treatment when you feel it’s needed.With routine care, you can keep your teeth healthy and looking great at the same time.Your PartnersEven athletes who compete in individual sports have a team of supporters to help them be their best. If you live in or near Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh, or Cary, our team of dentists and dental professionals are on your side when it comes to your oral health.To learn more about our professional teeth whitening options, you can request an appointment at the Sunrise Dental office that is most convenient for you by calling or clicking on the name of that office to fill out our online form.
