Teeth whitening is the best cosmetic treatment that provides an immediate and dramatic smile makeover. There are several types of whitening that are performed for whiter teeth, a few of which have been listed below.
In-Office teeth whitening is one of the most common teeth bleaching procedures. This procedure is done by a dental professional. The dentist will apply a whitening solution to your teeth. The solution contains hydrogen peroxide, which whitens teeth. The whitening solution can also remove teeth stains and plaque.
At-home teeth whitening kits are available to purchase at the store or online. These kits include trays that the user places over their teeth and whitening gel. The gel is applied to the teeth and then the trays are worn for a specified amount of time. Many patients see some results with at-home kits, but they usually take longer to work.
At-home teeth whitening kits are often less expensive, but the results are not as dramatic as professional teeth whitening.
Whitening toothpastes typically contain more abrasive ingredients than typical toothpastes. This can help to whiten teeth, but the results may be minimal. Additionally, whitening toothpastes only clean the surface of the teeth, not deep within the tooth enamel.
Professional whitening tray systems from a dentist are stronger than over-the-counter whitening trays. The dentist will take impressions of your teeth and then create a customized mouth tray for you to wear. At-home whitening trays will be customized for you and fit snugly over your teeth. This ensures even whitening so you don’t have to worry about parts of your teeth being white and others being different shades.
Laser teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that is performed in our office. During this procedure, a bleaching solution is applied to the patient’s teeth and the laser is used to activate the solution. Laser teeth whitening is one of the fastest and most effective ways to whiten your smile.
