Do You Want a Brighter Smile? Marietta, GA
A beautiful woman with a perfect smile Marietta GA

Most will agree—a bright white smile makes an immediate impression on those we meet. With the ability to exude youthfulness, vitality and perhaps even overall health and success, it’s no wonder that nearly 90% of patients request tooth whitening when asked about what they wanted to improve about their smile (American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry). With this in mind, do you want a brighter smile? Here’s what you need to know.

While most individuals understand that certain foods, beverages and lifestyle habits have a negative impact on their smile, what many do not realize is that genetics, antibiotics, developmental disorders, decay, previous restorations and trauma are also factors affecting the brightness of one’s smile. In addition, a tooth’s enamel and underlying layer called dentin change over time, often resulting in a yellow tone.

Will Tooth Whitening Work On My Teeth?

While tooth whitening is a simple process, it is important to speak to your dentist about which options will work for you. Mouth Healthy reports that while yellow-stained teeth typically respond well to tooth whitening, brown or gray teeth may not. In turn, whitening will not work on crowns, veneers or fillings. Finally, for tooth discoloration caused by medications or trauma, whitening is typically not effective. Even so, do not become discouraged if you suffer from severely stained teeth. Remember—only your dentist can determine what will work for you.

When it comes to professional tooth whitening, in-office bleaching remains a highly effective and economical way to brighten one’s smile. In 3-4 applications, dentists can whiten teeth up to 10 shades, in a one-hour visit! A specialized gel agent is used, and it includes a protective buffer for sensitive tooth enamel. Without question, in-office bleaching provides an instant transformation for most patients. On the other hand, professional tooth whitening can be performed at home for patients that desire a more gradual whitening experience. In essence, patients wear professional tooth whitening trays for up to one hour each day for 4-7 days. Patients may experience brighter results of up to 6 shades.

  • Kim P.

    Dr Patel answered my call for practically in the middle of the night. He came and had no other appointments for the day! Just to help me. The facility was immaculate and him and his hygienist were so helpful. I wish I remembered her name. It had been a while since I had been to the dentist and they never made me feel judged. Great team of people. If you are looking for a dentist give Dr. P and his team a try you won't be disappointed! See u in 2 weeks Dr. P.!i

  • Lisa O.

    Hands down the best dentist I have found. I took all three of my kids and myself. This is a welcoming, child-friendly team. It is readily apparent how well this team works together to make every patient, no matter what age, feel comfortable. I appreciate these people so much. Thank you for being such an outstanding dentist team, Pure Smiles!

  • Carmelita Ch.-H.

    Doctor/Staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Always make sure you feel comfortable. Pam is an excellent Hygienist. Office space is always clean and tidy. I would recommend this office as we have been going there for the past 12 years.

  • Hudson H.

    I usually HATE the dentist! I saw all these good reviews and was a bit skeptical, but after visiting this office I now know they’re all legit. Pure Smiles made me feel comfortable and was very considerate to me. I normally leave the dentist angry, this time however I was so pleased! Everyone was empathetic and went over and beyond to help me. Everything from scheduling to payment options, they cared. I actually want to floss now.

  • Michelle P.

    I only have positive things to say about Dr.Patel and the staff at Pure Smiles in Marietta. I was in bad shape with a wisdom tooth that needed to be removed. I was seen the same morning that I called, and everything was finished in under an hour. I received a check-up call that afternoon, which I felt was very thoughtful. I went back for an overall exam the following week, and I left their office feeling great about my future dental health. Do not hesitate to call Pure Smiles. The staff is kind, efficient, and up-to-date on dental advances.
