Teeth whitening is an effective way to brighten your smile and whiten tough-to-whiten stains and discolorations on your teeth. Most dentists offer in-office or take-home teeth whitening options to help patients achieve whiter teeth and a more confident smile. While over-the-counter products are available, professional treatments are often more effective and long-lasting.
At-home kits typically include custom-fitted trays and professional-strength bleaching gel. This at-home option is typically less expensive than an in-office procedure but may be less effective depending on the severity of your staining.
Professional treatments include a robust peroxide solution that is applied to the surface of your teeth and then activated with a laser or heat lamp, depending on your dentist’s preference. At Riverside Tooth Co, these procedures are typically completed in one office visit and offer immediate results.
Teeth can discolor for a variety of reasons. Some foods and drinks, such as coffee or red wine, can cause surface staining. Tobacco products can lead to deep stains within the enamel of your teeth. Trauma to the face and other injuries can also cause teeth to darken over time. Tooth color changes with age, so even if you start life with pearly white teeth, they would alter over time. If you have yellowing or stained teeth, teeth whitening may be a good option. Professional treatment at our office can remove many of the external stains caused by your lifestyle choices and habits. If you’ve received an injury to your face or mouth in the past, whitening may not be an appropriate option. The damage may have penetrated the dentin layer of your teeth, where whitening agents cannot reach. In this case, you may want to consider other options, like porcelain veneers.
Teeth whitening offers several benefits for your teeth and your smile. First, it helps to get rid of those tough stains that build up over time, making your smile dull and yellow-looking. Also, it gives you whiter teeth to feel more confident when smiling. Finally, it helps to make your teeth more robust in the long run. This is because it removes any bacteria and plaque buildup on the teeth. This bacteria can weaken the teeth and cause them to chip or break more easily.
The procedure doesn’t take very long, so you can have whiter teeth in no time! In addition, it is entirely safe and will not cause any harm to the teeth themselves. If you have questions about teeth whitening, feel free to ask your dentists the next time you go in for an appointment!
