Professional Teeth Whitening in Indian Trail, NC
If you often feel like your smile is dull and you cover it instead of letting it shine, consider dental whitening. At Pleasant Plains Dental, we offer two ways to professionally whiten your teeth, with just one visit! We’ll make a recommendation for teeth whitening treatment based on your oral health and the goals you have for a more confident smile.
Our in-office treatment will help you achieve a more confident and healthy smile. Zoom!® Teeth Whitening is a bleaching process used to lighten any discoloration of your teeth, particularly the outer two layers, enamel and dentin. A hydrogen peroxide gel is safely applied to your teeth, with your lips and gums safely covered for protection. Zoom!® remains in place for about 15 minutes, using an advanced lamp to accelerate the process. The gel breaks down the stains to allow oxygen to enter the enamel and dentin. Your teeth will become up to 8 shades whiter in a short amount of time. We may have recommendations for maintaining your new smile, but the results are easily maintained with consistent dental care.
KoR® Whitening Deep Bleaching
If you’re looking for a more dramatic whitening experience, we offer the unique and powerful KöR® whitening system. When you visit our office for your KöR® whitening treatment, we’ll make molds of your teeth to provide you with specialized whitening trays that form to your teeth for maximum coverage and comfort. After fitting the trays to your mouth, we’ll send you home with KöR whitening gel. All you have to do is wear the trays filled with gel each night for two weeks to achieve the best possible results. Come see us again when you’re done for a quick consultation. We’ll evaluate your results and make recommendations on maintaining your bright new smile.
Veneers & Lumineers®
Lumineers® are an affordable alternative to traditional porcelain veneers. Like veneers, Lumineers® fix chips, cracks, gaps, and color of teeth. The ultra-thin material requires minimal tooth preparation, so Lumineers® can be placed in only two visits to our office and without drilling or shots.
Snap-On Smile® is a non-invasive and budget-friendly way to get a dazzling smile without spending thousands on a complete smile makeover. Snap-On Smile® is also completely reversible, unlike veneers and other cosmetic procedures. Our team will custom-design the smile of your dreams. Just snap the easy-to-wear smile onto your teeth for the smile you’ve always wanted.
What are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry has helped many patients share a better version of their smile. The specialized treatments can improve the appearance of your teeth and quality of life. While appearance is a great benefit of cosmetic dentistry, improved diet, increased self-confidence, and ease of function are also benefits.
Can cosmetic dentistry fix receding gums?
While receding gums can make your teeth appear longer than they are, cosmetic dentistry, unfortunately, can’t fix receding gums. Receding gums are caused by gingivitis or gum disease. Before treating receding gums, Dr. Ernst will evaluate the severity to determine what treatment is necessary and likely suggest periodontal care.
Is cosmetic dentistry permanent?
Some cosmetic dentistry treatments are long-lasting with the right care. However, there is no treatment that is truly permanent. Patients who are looking for long-lasting cosmetic transformations should consider dental implants or veneers. These custom options should last around ten years or longer with proper professional and personal care!
