Hi, I’m Dr. J. Paul Koch, an experienced general and cosmetic dentist serving the greater Birmingham area. One of the most common requests I get from my dental patients is whiter teeth.
I am happy to say that Birmingham dental patients are in luck when it comes to teeth whitening, because cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening and porcelain veneers are safe, effective, and affordable.
Some Birmingham patients might be interested in bleaching their teeth at home. There are many affordable teeth whitening products available at Birmingham area drugstores. Remember that even though you are doing this procedure at home, you should discuss it with your Birmingham dentist and report any sensitivity that may occur.
There are many dentists in the Birmingham area that offer in-office teeth bleaching which can often be done in one visit. Birmingham residents who do in-office Zoom whitening usually appreciate the care that is given to protect the soft tissues of the mouth from the bleaching agent.
Any toothpaste that has an added polishing agent is considered a whitening toothpaste. For my patients, I always tell them to look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance when purchasing these.
As you can see, there are a lot of great ways to keep your teeth nice and white here in Birmingham.
If you’re interested in any of these whitening methods or a complete smile makeover, call Koch Aesthetic Dentistry at 205-202-8618. Our passionate staff will schedule a cosmetic dental consultation at your convenience.
We hope to hear from you soon!
