What’s professional Teeth Whitening?
If your teeth are discolored and stained, you may benefit from professional whitening. Unlike at-home whitening options, professional whitening is monitored and delivers quality results that you can count on. If your teeth have stained because of coffee, cigarettes or just the process of aging, whitening can reverse years off of your smile easily and quickly.
Why is Teeth Whitening needed?
There are many factors that can contribute to your teeth becoming stained. The most common reasons for discoloration include smoking, smokeless tobacco, coffee, tea, soda and other staining foods. Unfortunately, just the process of aging can have an effect on the way your smile looks. This is a major problem as it can be detrimental to your confidence and affect your self-esteem.
Who’s a candidate for professional Teeth Whitening?
Even professional whitening is unable to change the color of most restorations. However, we may suggest whitening your teeth before having certain restorations placed. This helps them to look whiter and more brilliant without being placed in a darker shade than you would have liked. The whitening process is most suitable for adults who have been to see a dentist at least one time in the past year.
What happens during the Whitening process?
We offer expert whitening in a convenient take-home package. Impressions are taken of your teeth so that new whitening trays can be made. These whitening trays fit your teeth perfectly, ensuring that all whitening ingredients are administered closely. We provide you with an exclusive gel formula that is helpful in lifting and dissolving stains from your teeth. You will use this system at home for about an hour each day or throughout the night as needed. To maintain your results, avoid anything that might stain or discolor your enamel and keep up with regular touch-ups throughout the year. Whitening is an essential part of caring for the look of your smile.
