Your Options For Teeth Whitening

Posted on 4/11/2022 by Evan
Your Options For Teeth WhiteningDo you dislike the way your teeth appear dull and discolored? Perhaps you have an upcoming function and need your teeth to be sparkling white. Many individuals have inquired about the distinctions between at-home teeth whitening products and in-chair laser therapy. We provide a selection of whitening alternatives and information regarding at-home and professional teeth whitening at all of our locations. Understanding your options before treatment can help you make a more educated decision.

Professional Teeth Whitening

When opposed to doing it yourself, having your teeth professionally whitened by your dentist delivers faster and more consistent results. This is due to the increased peroxide concentration in the whitening gel used in in-chair treatments, which a dental expert should do. Your dentist will clean and scale your teeth to eliminate excess plaque and other food particles during the treatment before administering the whitening gel. To protect your gums and other soft tissues from discomfort and to prevent you from swallowing the gel, a rubber dam will be put in your mouth. The whitening gel, which is triggered by an LED light, will next be gently applied to the surfaces of your teeth by your dentist. The procedure takes around an hour and is done in phases, allowing your dentist to monitor development and determine when your teeth have attained the correct shade.

Teeth Whitening at Home

Before buying a take-home whitening kit, you should still visit your dentist for an oral checkup and teeth cleaning since the presence of plaque or underlying oral health concerns will impair the outcomes. In rare circumstances, tooth sensitivity may be so severe that you are unsuitable for whitening. It's always a good idea to check with your dentist before making an appointment. In certain situations, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth, which will be used to create custom-fit trays, or they may give you more generic kits that do not include custom-fit trays. Fill these trays with the included whitening gel and place them over your teeth for one hour every day or for as long as your dentist prescribes. In most cases, your teeth will acquire the ideal level of whitening in around two weeks.
