The sign of a great smile? Bright white teeth! These days, teeth whitening procedures have become a relatively easy way to instantly improve aesthetics, create a positive first impression, and achieve a more youthful and radiant appearance. At the office of Family Smiles Dental Care, our trained staff is highly skilled in performing professional teeth whitening techniques to help you look your very best.
It’s no secret that life can do a number on the teeth. Despite your best efforts of brushing and flossing regularly, food, drink, advancing years, tobacco use -- even some medications -- can stain and discolor teeth, giving them an unattractive, yellowish brown appearance.
Professional teeth whitening performed by a dentist offers several advantages over OTC teeth whitening products: it’s easier and more convenient for the patient and produces better, more long-lasting results. The process is relatively simple and takes anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes to complete. Whitening products contain one of two tooth bleaches (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide). These bleaches break stains into smaller pieces, which makes the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter. Once the optimum shade has been reached, the teeth are rinsed, and a fluoride may then be applied to help ease any tooth sensitivity.
Keep in mind that whiteners may not correct all types of discoloration. For example, whitening will not work on caps, veneers, crowns or fillings. It also may not be as effective for darker tooth discolorations caused by certain medications or tooth injury. That’s why it’s important to speak with our dentist to see if the procedure is right of you.
