If you’re one of the many people who are experiencing tooth staining and discoloration, you may want to look into having your teeth whitened by a teeth bleaching dentist. In-office teeth whitening treatments are a fast and effective way to achieve dramatic lightening results for your teeth.
Does Professional Teeth Whitening Work?
Since teeth whitening treatments performed by a dentist use highly concentrated bleaching gel, it is an effective means of brightening the smile immediately. This safe and pain-free procedure works best on enamel that has been stained by the consumption of foods, beverages, and tobacco products.
Tetracycline stains and discoloration that is caused by structural issues in the teeth are not able to treated with teeth whitening treatments. Fillings, veneers, and crowns can also not be treated in this manner.
Before your whitening treatments are determined, you will receive an examination. During this examination, our dentist will determine the best method for dealing with your discoloration. This helps to prevent any unexpected results throughout the teeth whitening process.
Can I Whiten My Teeth At Home?
If you’re interested in professional-grade teeth whitening at home, then you’re in luck! Our dentists can provide you with a custom-made whitening kit to take home with you. Your kit will have trays and highly concentrated bleaching gel. These trays will need to be applied for one hour a day over a time period of two weeks. These teeth whitening kits can often help you to lighten your teeth up to six shades.
Can You Tell Me How Much Teeth Whitening Costs?
Teeth bleaching cost is determined by a number of factors. Your overall bill will be based on things like the system used, the number of teeth whitening treatments needed, and the number of follow-up visits needed. Work done to match the color of any restorative materials will also factor into the price you will pay.
Do Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Products Work?
Over-the-counter teeth whitening solutions can improve your discoloration issues, but not as well as a visit to a teeth bleaching dentist can. In addition, the use of dental whitening trays, gels, rinses, strips and toothpastes can cause gum irritation if used improperly. Professional whitening treatments are stronger, faster, and safer to use than the over-the-counter options available in stores.
Can You Give Me Information on What Occurs During a Teeth Whitening Procedure?
