All About Teeth Whitening
Even if you’ve got a healthy smile, this does not mean it is as bright and white as it could be. All of our teeth normally become darker and get discolored as we get older. You are able to safely and effectively obtain that bright, white smile you’ve always wished for by way of personalized smile whitening which we provide. Cosmetic teeth whitening can remove discolorations from your teeth brought on by:
Teeth whitening is a procedure where surface and internal stains are removed from each tooth. Elimination of the surface staining starts with getting your teeth thoroughly cleaned and polished at the dental office. After that, peroxide gels are put on to your teeth both at the office as well as at home utilizing custom molded trays which we create for you. The special gel moves through the tooth surface and into the internal layers of your teeth expelling oxygen that dissipates the unsightly stains.
Orange, yellow and brown hued stains are usually most effectively lightened, particularly when they have developed with time. Gray and blue hued stains are usually much more difficult to remove as is substantial tetracycline discoloration. Tetracycline is an antibiotic that, if given to young children when their permanent teeth are developing, will cause staining of those teeth during adulthood. We provide a number of options in smile lightening which are quick and effective, non-invasive procedures bound to boost your confidence and self esteem and give you a wonderful smile. After discussing your goals and expectations, Dr. Workman is going to advise the whitening approach that is suitable for your smile, your schedule and your finances.
It is very important for you to understand that teeth whitening agents simply affect actual tooth structure (tooth enamel, root surface and its hidden layer referred to as “dentin”). Any restorative materials (fillings, porcelain veneers or crowns) you have in or on your teeth aren’t going to be whitened. This means right after your bleaching is finished, any restorations not matching with your brand new, whiter smile will likely need to be replaced.
Plenty of over-the-counter tooth whitening solutions are available at the local store. But, only a dentist can give you a prescription-grade teeth whitening solution which offers consistent, comfortable and sustainable final results.
