Are you looking for a safe, simple and affordable process to brighten your smile?Tooth whitening or bleaching may be the answer for you. Discoloration may occur from many causes including staining from coffee, wine, tea, smoking, normal ageing or chemical damage.
Having a bright smile can be a great asset, but not everyone has naturally pearly white teeth. In the past not much could be done; but today we can offer various teeth whitening services. Bleaching can be an easy process to make stained or discolored teeth brighter, whiter, and more appealing.
There are different ways you can bleach your teeth professionally, in-office whitening, home-use whitening, or a combination of both.
In-office whitening is done in the dental office. There are many in-office tooth whitening products available to dentists. These products are much stronger than the take home bleach products, since in-office products have more hydrogen peroxide, the active ingredient. The in-office procedure is usually completed in about one hour and will give you an instant result.
Home use whitening is done at home with custom bleach trays made just for you. This bleaching agent usually contains the active ingredient carbamide peroxide and it is placed in the trays and worn for a period or time or overnight. These whiteners are not as strong as in-office whiteners, since they are meant to be used over a period of days to weeks. Home use whiteners are also sold over the counter. Some are applied with trays, strips, a brush or a rinse. When choosing an over the counter product, look for the American Dental Association’s (ADA) seal of acceptance.
Ask us today if you have any questions about choosing which product will work best for you. Your smile is important and is one of the first things seen when individuals meet. A brighter, whiter smile can help you feel more confident about yourself and also leave an everlasting impression on others.
