Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening

Teeth are stained by the foods and drinks we consume, specially coffee, tea, dark colas, red wine, etc. Smoking further stains teeth and the natural bright, white shade becomes darkened. Our teeth can also discolor through the years as our enamel wears down. The wearing down of enamel allows dentin, a yellow color substance that makes the core of our teeth, to show through. Teeth whitening is a successful and simple method of lightening the color of your teeth. The degree of whiteness achieved will vary from patient to patient and with the type of bleaching process chosen.

Teeth whitening methods

Here at the Center for Dental Health we have two popular teeth whitening options available.

Home whitening is our most popular whitening option, as well as being one of the easiest. The home whitening trays are very user-friendly with markings showing you exactly where to load the whitening gel. These trays have special seals preventing the gel leaking onto the gums and causing sensitivity. This method, involves the use of take home whitening kits. These whitening kits are purchased from your doctor for use at home. The strength of the gel used in these kits is lower than that used for in-office bleaching, and thus the gel can be applied for longer periods of time. Usually the trays are worn a couple hours a day or overnight for a few days or weeks depending on the product.

The second method is in-office teeth whitening; it produces a significant color change in your teeth in a short amount of time, usually within an hour.  It's the perfect choice for everyone who is looking for immediate results, who has a busy lifestyle and can't wait to have the smile of their dreams.

And the treatment procedure is simple.

It begins with a short preparation to cover and protect your lips and gums, leaving only your teeth exposed.

 Then your dentist will apply a high-concentration peroxide gel on the teeth, followed by the application of a special light, breaking up stains and discoloration. With proper care and maintenance your smile can sparkle for years

It is better to consult your dentist to understand which whitening option is best for you.
