If you are unhappy with the color of your teeth, or they are stained from smoking or drinking coffee or tea, then teeth whitening may be a good option for you to consider. At Serenity Dental, our dentist performs professional teeth whitening services to whiten a patient’s teeth in as little as one whitening session.
Our dentist will apply a potent bleaching agent to the surfaces of the patient’s teeth and use a special light to activate the chemical in the bleaching gel. This combination allows the bleach to penetrate the enamel and remove stains from the tooth surface.
Patients typically see a brighter smile after just one treatment. The effects of professional teeth whitening are lasting, but patients should still avoid staining foods and drinks to prevent further discoloration of the teeth.
Professional Teeth Whitening
In-office whitening involves a cosmetic dentist applying a potent bleaching gel to your teeth, which is then activated by a special light or laser to speed up the whitening process. Our dentist may treat your entire mouth at once or focus on individual teeth as desired. You can expect a brighter smile after just one treatment, although you may see better results with multiple treatments over a more extended period.
Over-The-Counter Whitening Systems
While some of these products can be effective, they will likely not match the results of professional teeth whitening services. This is because these at-home treatments do not contain any bleach or other potent teeth-bleaching agents. After using one of these over-the-counter products, you may notice some improvement in the color of your teeth. However, you will likely need to repeat the process multiple times to see a substantial difference. In addition, the results will last only a fraction of the effective period achieved with professional treatment.
When you opt for a professional whitening treatment at our dentist’s office, you’re guaranteed a safe procedure that works well to remove the stains and yellowing caused by coffee, wine, aging, and more. Our dentist can ensure that your teeth are healthy enough for whitening before recommending the best method for your needs.
While plenty of whitening products are available at your local store, professional whitening is more effective. Over-the-counter whitening products aren’t potent enough to produce the desired results and usually take a longer time to have noticeable effects. In-office whitening treatments can produce immediate, longer-lasting results in a short amount of time.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile or have a special occasion coming up, consider a professional teeth whitening treatment at our dentist’s office.
