Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that can improve the appearance of your teeth. Teeth whitening is efficient, safe, and effective. When teeth are professionally whitened, it is beneficial to remove external staining caused by foods, drinks, or tobacco. Intrinsic staining that is caused by trauma, medication, or fluorosis can also be removed with teeth whitening.
The effects of teeth whitening are long-lasting. However, patients are advised to continue their regular oral hygiene routine after whitening. This includes brushing at least twice a day, flossing, and regularly rinsing with a mouthwash.
Why Do Teeth Get Stained?
Teeth can get stained for all kinds of reasons.
Some of the main causes of stained teeth are:
- Food and drink
- Poor oral hygiene
- Certain medications
A teeth whitening procedure at our dentist's office can eliminate all dental stains and whiten teeth in an hour.
Professional Teeth Whitening
While there are many teeth whitening options on the market, your safest, most effective option is a teeth-whitening procedure at your dentist's office.
During the professional teeth whitening treatment, your dentist will start the procedure by protecting your gums by covering them with a special shield. Then, the dentist will apply a solution containing highly potent hydrogen peroxide to your teeth. The agent is highly concentrated and stronger than anything available over the counter. After a specific time, the dentist will rinse off the solution and reapply the whitening agent. The process is repeated for 45 to 60 minutes till the desired whitening level is attained.
Professional whitening offers the fastest and most effective results. After your treatment, your teeth will be noticeably whiter. However, the results will fade over time. To extend the longevity of your whitening results, we offer additional oral care recommendations.
