Why Visiting Us for Tooth Whitening is Your Best Bet for Optimal Results
Posted on 8/24/2020 by Mark Bieber
A few minutes of searching the internet for home-made and over-the-counter teeth whitening solutions will leave you inundated in myriads of options. While these solutions can bring about varying results depending on the unique personal needs of the user and the application technique, our professional teeth whitening procedures are always tailored to each individual needs and produce instant, long-lasting results. With our teeth whitening procedures, you won't have to wait for long periods before you begin noticing results, nor will you have to deal with various undesirable side effects compared to home-made and over-the-counter remedies. First, we will carefully examine the cause of the discoloration. If the discoloration is external, then we can recommend simpler teeth cleaning and whitening procedures to remove the superficial stains. But if the darkening is deeply etched inside the teeth, then we might need more complex whitening procedures. Internal discoloration is usually caused by stains in the root canal, leaking old fillings, dental decay, or anomalies in the tooth structure. In rare cases, we can recommend in-surgery whitening such as intrinsic whitening, which bleaches the internal structure of teeth, which has an emptied root canal. What to Expect from Our Teeth Whitening Procedures Our most commonly used teeth whitening procedure entails applying whitening gel and activating it using innocuous UV or LED light. We'll use an impression of your teeth to determine the appropriate quantity of gel to apply as well as the appropriate cycles of application. You might have to wear the gel for 20 – 40 minutes a day for 1 – 2 weeks. The aim is to give the teeth a significantly brighter shade – but not too bright that the teeth look fake. We recommend for you to undergo this whitening procedure at least twice per year, and, in-between those periods, to stick to excellent oral care habits.
