Over time, what we eat, our age, and other behaviors can cause our teeth to become stained or darkened. Luckily, there are many whitening treatments out there to help restore our smiles back to their original beauty.
What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is a treatment used to make the overall appearance of your teeth whiter. Teeth whitening can come in a variety of forms. Over the counter whitening kits are available, but usually aren’t as effective as professional whitening options. Take home professional whitening involves the application of a bleaching gel into a custom-made bleaching tray to be worn for a period of time during the day or at night. Great results are often seen after just one application and this method is far more effective than over the counter whitening kits.
Is teeth whitening safe?
Yes, our take home professional teeth whitening is not only incredibly effective but also safe for your teeth and gums. You can rest easy knowing that you are not sacrificing your safety for a bright white smile.
What whitening products are used in your office?
In our office, we use Poladay and Polanight 10-36% carbamide peroxide gel with custom-made bleaching trays. These products are also fluoride releasing. This helps strengthen the enamel of your teeth and prevent sensitivity. We believe this is the safest and most effective way to whiten your teeth.
Will the teeth whitening be painful?
Whitening may cause your teeth and gums to be slightly sensitive, but there is normally no pain associated with teeth whitening. Our custom-made bleaching trays help protect your gums while whitening. If you are noticing extra sensitivity in your mouth, avoid food and drinks that are extremely hot and cold for a few hours after whitening.
