Achieve a Brighter Smile with our Professional Teeth Whitening

Brighter smile with teeth whiteningAre you dreaming of a whiter smile? Let’s start with the most basic question of all – what is teeth whitening? Teeth whitening is an in-office or take-home process that relies on products containing peroxides to brighten your natural smile.

Before trying new products, it is important to conduct a little research. In addition, we encourage you to ask your dentist any questions you may have about the procedure prior to scheduling your teeth whitening appointment.

What Do I Need to Know?

To see the greatest results, teeth whitening products must contain either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. While these chemicals can sound a bit intimidating, you can rest assured that they do not cause permanent damage to the teeth or gums. Sensitive gums are common after the first few treatments – however, please note that this sensation is only temporary.

Am I A Good Candidate?

Teeth whitening procedures are most effective on patients with yellowed teeth. Brown or grey staining may require additional attention.

Before committing to teeth whitening of any form, make sure the process will accomplish what you are looking to achieve. If teeth whitening does not seem to be good option for you, ask your dentist about alternatives like veneers to create the smile you’ve always wanted.

What Happens After?

Following your in-office procedure or use of your take-home kit, you may experience the following symptoms:

  • Overall sensitivity
  • Slight gum discomfort
  • Minor toothaches

Do not worry – each of the after-effects of teeth whitening procedures are temporary, disappearing in most patients within a short period of time. Keep in mind that different teeth whitening procedures require various amounts of time to achieve noticeable results.
