Teeth Whitening is a process that will whiten the teeth, making them a few shades lighter than they were before the treatment. When done or supervised by dental professionals it is an effective, safe method to give you a brighter-looking smile!
A good dental cleaning is the first procedure used to remove stains and discolorations, often caused by certain foods and beverages, tobacco, medications, illness or just the natural aging process. We then offer several ways to whiten your smile further:
In-Office Bleaching: Done in the office, in one visit. A protective gel or shield will cover your gums to protect them, then a bleaching agent is applied to your teeth. A special light or laser may or may not be used to accelerate the action of the whitening agent.
At-home bleaching: Done at home, usually takes 10 to 14 days. A whitening gel is placed in a special tray that you wear for the recommended time (30 minutes to one hour usually) every day, depending on the regimen.
Some potential side effects of the treatment are teeth sensitivity or gum irritation.
A beautiful white smile is certainly an asset when interacting with others, and is a well-known self-esteem and confidence booster!
