A bright, white smile can make you look attractive and also boost your self-esteem. But your day-to-day activities and habits can stain and discolor your teeth. With our teeth whitening procedure, you can get that look in no time.
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment that removes stains and debris from your teeth, leaving them whiter and brighter.
What are the advantages of teeth whitening?
There are several advantages of teeth whitening:
- Whitening can improve the appearance of your teeth in just a few minutes.
- Whitening your teeth up to 10 shades lighter can change the appearance of your smile.
- Whitening is more affordable than other cosmetic procedures.
- Whitening can provide a quick and easy way to improve the appearance of your smile.
What is in-office teeth whitening?
In-office teeth whitening treatment is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. You experience dramatic results in a single appointment, approximately one hour in length. Our dentist applies the whitening agent to the surface of your teeth, where it breaks down stain molecules.
Most patients opt for professional teeth whitening because the results are more dramatic and long-lasting than over-the-counter products. In order to make the results stay long, you need to give extra care to your oral health.
What is at-home teeth whitening?
At-home teeth whitening involves using special, custom-made trays and whitening gel to gradually lighten teeth that are stained or discolored. Other teeth whitening options, such as whitening toothpaste, whitening strips, etc., are widely available, but they can't provide the same quality results. These over-the-counter (OTC) products also don't offer the safety as the professional hands do.
How long does teeth whitening last?
It's difficult to pinpoint the exact amount of time teeth whitening lasts because every patient is different.
There are also a few things you can do to keep your teeth bright after the teeth whitening treatment. Brush with whitening toothpaste, floss, and rinse with mouthwash. Avoid smoking or tobacco products.
If you regularly drink coffee, tea, or wine, your teeth will stain over time. Certain medications, including antibiotics, can cause teeth to become discolored.
