Professional Teeth Whitening…At Home!
Professional teeth whitening involves the application of an oxidizing solution (often hydrogen peroxide) to the surfaces of your teeth. The solution breaks up staining elements and brightens the structures underneath your teeth’s surface layer of enamel. Our custom-made whitening kits are designed to fit snugly over your teeth, allowing you to apply the solution evenly, and from the comfort of your own home. Wearing the trays for about an hour a day, every day, can help brighten your smile up to 10 shades or more in as little as two weeks.
FAQs About Professional Teeth Whitening
Do teeth stains mean my dental health is in trouble?
Usually, teeth stains occur on or just below your teeth’s surface (enamel), and do not necessarily indicate a serious problem; however, some discoloration could mean a tooth is infected or damaged from the inside, and you should seek a professional assessment before choosing an appropriate treatment.
Can over-the-counter whitening treatment work?
Though you can find a variety of over-the-counter teeth whitening products, many are ineffective or unsatisfactory for most common teeth stains due to the diluted strength of their solutions. Professional teeth whitening offers more powerful bleaching agents, and therefore more satisfactory results.
What if my stains are too severe for teeth whitening?
Professional teeth whitening is stronger than the options you’ll find in a pharmacy or grocery store, but it is not always the preferable cosmetic dental treatment. If your stains are too stubborn for teeth whitening, or if they occur from within your tooth’s structure, then we can recommend a more effective treatment, such as cosmetic tooth bonding or porcelain veneers.
