How is Teeth Whitening Done?
Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening
- Corrects brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining
- Works on people of any age
- Is a near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and brings a smile alive
An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used for just a few minutes each day for a week or two, and at the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth.
Will it Work For Me?
Whitening will only work for stain caused by certain medications if the discoloration is very mild. Teeth that are discolored because of medication or excessive fluoride are not good candidates whitening. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or porcelain veneers may be more appropriate.
Once you reach our office, our dentist will let you know the best solution for you.
Why Can’t I Just Buy An Over-The-Counter Product?
Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.
Before your teeth can be whitened we must check them for cavities, as the whitening gel can cause serious damage if it leaks into these areas. If cavities are found, they must be repaired before tooth whitening takes place. If there are no cavities, we will begin the whitening process.
