We dream of a beautiful smile that lasts forever. Since our teeth work hard for us, show them some love with good oral practices.
Many people achieve the desired looks that they dream of with advanced whitening options. Teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment to achieve pearly white smiles that make a positive impression.
Why Do My Teeth Change Their Natural Color?
Teeth whitening helps remove stains from the tooth surface and retain its natural color. Causes of tooth discoloration vary from one person to another, some of which are:
- Consuming colored drinks including tea, coffee, wine
- Smoking and other forms of tobacco use
- High intake of fluoride
- Unhealthy diet
- Gum diseases and tooth decay
Teeth Whitening Treatments for Brighter Smile
Professional teeth whitening is customized for every patient. Thus, one can attain an exact level of whiteness by choosing the correct shade. Professional teeth whitening provides you with a healthy smile that boosts your confidence.
Ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy enough to undergo teeth whitening treatment by having them thoroughly examined by your dentist. If you are suitable for the process, we will then determine the appropriate teeth whitening options.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening offers a quick and noticeable outcome in a single office visit. Teeth whitening results last long with proper care and maintenance. Dentists conduct a comprehensive oral exam and routine dental cleaning before performing the teeth whitening procedure to restore teeth’s natural color.
During in-office teeth whitening, a cheek retractor is placed to protect the gums from the teeth whitening solution. Then, hydrogen peroxide solution is applied to the surface of teeth and allowed to sit for a few minutes. A curing light is introduced to activate the whitening agents in the solution.
After the recommended hours, the dentist will rinse it off to attain the desired shade for your teeth. The procedure is repeated until the teeth show the desired brightness.
Customized Teeth Whitening Trays
Customized Teeth Whitening Trays are a popular and affordable teeth whitening option that can be applicable at home, at the dentist’s office or both. The dentist will provide custom trays that are comfortably fit and instructions on using them with the accompanying whitening solution.
