Teeth Whitening: Brighter Smile, Brighter Life?

Teeth Whitening: Brighter Smile, Brighter Life?

For many, looking good means purchasing a new outfit or trying a new hairstyle. Yet, for others, it’s having a whiter smile. Generating an immediate impact, whiter teeth also give an impression of youth, radiant health, and happiness. That’s why professional Teeth Whitening continues to be on the rise as one of the most requested and economical procedures in cosmetic dentistry. Thus, dental professionals and patients agree—Teeth Whitening contributes to a brighter smile and a brighter life.

With age, many become dissatisfied with the appearance of their smile. This is mostly due to the surfaces of teeth becoming darkened or stained. Several factors are to blame, including genetics, the use of medications, foods, beverages, and lifestyle, not to mention tooth decay or trauma. In addition, the enamel and dentin inside teeth change as well.

In-Office Professional Teeth Whitening (in one hour)

In as little as an hour, in-office professional teeth whitening in a dental office is safe, effective, and fast! Patients appreciate the convenience of achieving a smile that is 8-10 shades brighter in one visit. Typically, in-office whitening involves applying a special gel agent, which contains a buffer to protect tooth enamel. Providing an instant transformation, it’s easy to see why more and more patients seek the revolutionary treatment that in-office teeth whitening provides.

At-Home Professional Teeth Whitening

For patients that prefer the comfort of achieving a whiter, brighter smile at home, professional-grade teeth whitening gel in trays are highly effective. Patients may wear the whitening trays for 30-60 minutes each day, or twice a day for faster results. Even so, most at-home professional teeth whitening treatments provide the best results in approximately 7 days. Like in-office treatments, a buffer, or tooth desensitizer is contained within the gel to protect against tooth sensitivity.
