There have been amazing advancements in tooth whitening procedures which we would be able to share with you.
Teeth that have yellowed with age or stained from coffee, red wine or smoking usually respond well to whitening.
This relates to in-chair (Zoom) and take-home (DIY) whitening for the smile you always wanted. We recommend you try our most popular WHITE DENTAL BEAUTY NOVON enhanced formula with your custom made bleach trays to use the 6% hydrogen peroxide.
Bleaching is a common and popular chemical process used to whiten teeth. Some people get their teeth bleached to make stains disappear, while other just want a whiter shade.
Discoloration occurs in the enamel and can be caused by medication, coffee, tea and cigarettes. Discoloration also can be hereditary or due simply to getting older.
Bleaching can be performed by your hygienist in the office or, under dental supervision, at home. Many patients enjoy bleaching at home because it is more convenient. Treatment begins when your dentist creates a custom mouthpiece to ensure the correct amount of whitening solution is used and that your teeth are properly exposed. Typically, whitening at home takes four weeks, depending on the desired shade you wish to achieve.
Take Home Bleaching
The most popular, cost-effective option is a whitening kit that you can use at home called WHITE DENTAL BEAUTY NOVON Enhanced Formula. Impressions are taken by our hygienist and then custom-made mouthguards made to use with 6% hydrogen peroxide. Little blobs of bleach is placed into the trays and you wear them at home for about 30 minutes per day. See results within a few days!!
For those patients wanting in-chair bleaching called Zoom it takes 1.5 and 2 hours for your perfect smile.
There is always some sensitivity with tooth whitening procedures, which can be helped with Sensodyne toothpaste. It only lasts a short time.
