Is Teeth Whitening Right For You?

Whitening Teeth Roswell GA

White teeth are certainly attractive. In fact, a whiter smile can contribute to your career success and even take years off of your appearance. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to maintain a bright set of teeth. Regardless of how often you brush and floss, your teeth may still suffer from unsightly staining and discoloration. Habits that involve coffee, red wine and tobacco use can make your dental stains even worse. Your smile is prone to discolor over time, and it is not always possible to avoid minor stains without the help of your dentist. Your dentist can offer professional teeth whitening treatments to bring back your brilliant smile.

Not all teeth whitening treatments are equal. First and foremost, you should understand the difference between professional whitening with your dentist compared to the whitening products you can buy in your grocery store aisle. Over-the-counter products, such as whitening pens, strips, toothpastes, trays and mouthwashes, often promise to whiten your teeth over a period of time. While you may see results with these methods, you will likely have to wait longer and undergo repeated treatments to reach your goals. Most importantly, DIY whitening is not overseen by a dentist. Therefore, you may experience disruptive sensitivity and pain after using some of these products.

Professional whitening at your dental office is quicker, safer and more effective. Dr. Mitzi Morris offers ZOOM! Whitening, one of the nation’s most proven professional-grade whitening systems that uses light-activated gel to reverse tooth stains in just one hour! By simply sitting in the dental chair and relaxing, we may be able to lighten your smile by several shades!

Good and Bad Candidates for Professional Teeth Whitening

While everyone desires whiter and brighter teeth, not everyone will be a good candidate for professional teeth whitening. Patients with mild to moderate external staining are ideal candidates. Good candidates for professional teeth whitening also must have good oral health with updated visits to their dentist.

Poor candidates also exist. You may want to consider an alternative treatment for whiter teeth (such as porcelain veneers), if you have:

  • Gum disease
  • Multiple dental restorations (crowns, fillings, bridge)
  • Extensive decay
  • Exposed tooth roots
  • Extremely sensitive teeth
  • Severe and/or internal staining
  • Desire for permanent results

Teeth whitening remains the most sought-after service in cosmetic dentistry. It can bring some of the most dramatic improvements to your smile with minimal time and money compared to other cosmetic dental treatments. Schedule your ZOOM! Whitening in Roswell today by calling Dr. Mitzi Morris!

4.8/ 5.0

Based on 44 reviews

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

    Christopher P
  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.

    Bruce C
  • I have never experienced an office so down to earth, so outgoing and so willing to satisfy. If you've grown to dread the dentist then lay down your sword and give this office a shot.
