If you desire a younger, refreshed look for your smile, consider teeth whitening from Babcock & Morgan Family Dental in Prior Lake, MN teeth whiteningand serving Shakopee, New Prague & Savage MN. Superior and safer than over the counter whitening strips, rinses or pastes, this cosmetic dental service is very much in demand. Why? It's because older teens and adults desire to look their best and to feel more confident in social and professional situations. You, too, can eliminate the stains and dinginess that mar your healthy smile.

What is professional whitening?

Professional teeth whitening in Shakopee uses potent hydrogen peroxide gel. Applied directly to stained tooth surfaces, the gel penetrates highly mineralized enamel, oxidizing organic matter from:

  • Tobacco (both cigarettes and smokeless tobacco)
  • Dark foods such as blueberries and curry
  • Dark drinks such as coffee, tea, sports drinks and colas
  • Lack of brushing and flossing at home and hygienic cleanings at the office
  • The aging process (with advancing age comes darker and/or thinner enamel)
  • Prescription medications such as antihistamines and antihypertensives

The comfortable treatment at Babcock & Morgan Family Dental takes only 60 to 90 minutes. It happens right in the dental chair. Patients leave with smiles that are brighter by eight or more shades of color. Plus, because the process is professionally supervised, people experience no tooth or gum sensitivity as can happen with retail whitening products.

Are you a candidate?

The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry says that many people are. Dental and gingival health is key to whitening safety and effectiveness. So Dr. Morgan, Dr. Babcock, or Dr. Jaberi will examine your teeth and gums before starting the whitening process to be sure all is well.

Additionally, the best whitening candidates:

  • Don't smoke or chew tobacco
  • Limit dietary choices that stain enamel
  • Brush twice a day and floss daily at home
  • Get six-month cleanings at Babcock & Morgan Family Dental

Will your whitened last?

Yes, professional teeth whitening can last for years. However, occasional touch-ups at the dental office refresh problem areas.

Also, you should know that your Shakopee dentist often combines professional teeth whitening with other cosmetic procedures such as porcelain veneers for a complete cosmetic smile makeover. Ask him or her what treatments would benefit your smile aesthetics.
