Teeth whitening is one of the quickest and easiest ways to improve the appearance of your smile. Teeth whitening is often used in combination with reconstructive and cosmetic dentistry cases as part of a smile makeover.
Doctors Maria Burmaster and Valerie Hemphill offer a wide range of professional teeth whitening options to brighten your smile. They will discuss your cosmetic goals, dental concerns and budget before recommending which option is best suited to your needs.
Professional vs. Over the Counter Teeth Whitening
The teeth whitening offered by Barataria Dental is far superior to the teeth bleaching kits sold in drug stores. The bleaching gel that we use has a far stronger concentration of active ingredients for faster, whiter results. In addition, our bleaching trays are designed to fit perfectly against the teeth for an even distribution of bleaching gel meaning no missed spots.
Why Are My Teeth Discolored?
Our teeth become dull and discolored with age. There is no single cause for tooth discoloration, family history may be a factor, but the main reasons for teeth discoloration are:
- Exposure to dark foods and beverages
- Tobacco use
- Certain medications or medical conditions
EZ White Teeth Whitening can brighten your smile up to 8 shades lighter in about an hour.
With little to no sensitivity and results that will last with proper maintenance and dental care, EZ White offers a quick, painless and economical smile makeover.
Barataria Dental offers the EZ White Teeth Whitening treatment for $357 for the entire mouth, not just the "smile zone" teeth. Although this in office treatment offers lasting results, a touch up pen can be purchased for at home use to address minor spots or stains. Dr. Burmaster and Dr. Hemphill can discuss your cosmetic concerns and recommend the treatment options that are best suited to your dental health.
