What is Teeth Whitening?

There are both in-office and at-home whitening options available. Most whitening products use the same whitening agent, carbamide peroxide, though the concentrations will vary, depending on the process and product used.

 

In-office procedures use stronger whitening agents and/or a light source to speed up the whitening process. The at-home option generally takes several days to a couple of weeks to complete, allowing for a slower, more gradual shade change.

 

The easiest stains to remove are also the most common. These are the result of external factors, such as drinking coffee or tea, and smoking. Also, teeth tend to get slightly more yellow as we age because of changes that occur within the dentin (the layer under the enamel) that can be seen through the enamel. Whitening is most effective and generally quite successful on these types of stains.

Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening?

Enhanced Smile Confidence

Professional teeth whitening can significantly brighten your smile, boosting your self-confidence and leaving you feeling more attractive. A whiter smile can help you make a positive first impression in social and professional settings.

Faster and Long-Lasting Results

Professional teeth whitening procedures often provide faster results compared to at-home alternatives. In just a single visit or a short series of sessions, you can achieve a noticeably brighter smile. Additionally, professional whitening treatments typically deliver longer-lasting results, allowing you to enjoy your brighter smile for an extended period.

The Teeth Whitening Process

1. Consultation: The journey to a brighter smile begins with a consultation. Our dental team will assess your oral health, discuss your goals, and determine if teeth whitening is the right option for you. We will also explain the procedure in detail and address any questions or concerns you may have.

2. Dental Examination: Before proceeding with teeth whitening, it's important to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy. Our dentist will perform a thorough examination, checking for cavities, gum disease, or any other issues that need to be addressed prior to the whitening treatment.

3. Shade Selection: Together with our dental team, you will select the desired shade of whiteness for your teeth. We will consider factors such as your natural tooth color, skin tone, and personal preferences to achieve a natural and flattering result.

4. Preparation: To prepare for the whitening procedure, your teeth will be cleaned to remove any plaque or debris. This step ensures that the whitening agents can effectively penetrate the enamel for optimal results.

5. Application of Whitening Agent: A professional-grade whitening gel or solution will be applied to your teeth. The concentration and type of whitening agent used may vary based on your specific treatment plan. We take precautions to protect your gums and soft tissues during the application process.

6. Activation: Depending on the type of whitening system, a special light or laser may be used to activate the whitening agent and enhance its effectiveness. The light helps to accelerate the whitening process, allowing for quicker and more noticeable results.

7. Monitoring and Reapplication: Throughout the procedure, our dental team will closely monitor the progress of the whitening. In some cases, the whitening agent may need to be reapplied and the process repeated to achieve the desired level of whiteness.

8. Post-Treatment Care: Once the whitening procedure is complete, we will provide instructions on post-treatment care. This may include recommendations on diet, oral hygiene practices, and the use of sensitivity-reducing products, if needed.
