Who Is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
As we mentioned before, there are plenty of ways that teeth can collect stains. There are two major categories that separate them: intrinsic and extrinsic. Extrinsic stains are like food or tobacco stains, those that sit on the exterior of the tooth and settle into the enamel. Intrinsic stains come from within the tooth or are structural features of it. Tooth discoloration caused by aging is a good example.
Teeth whitening is better at dealing with extrinsic stains than intrinsic ones but can brighten your smile in both cases. That makes it an excellent choice for just about anyone who is interested in improving their appearance.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
There are two primary ways that teeth whitening is done: via take-home trays, or in-office. In either case, it’s done by administering a whitening gel to the teeth. This gel can lift stains from the enamel, and once it’s removed, you’ll have a smile up to eight shades whiter.
We make use of Ultradent Opalescence in our whitening procedures, affording them top-of-the-line results.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
Take-home teeth whitening is a great option for patients who want convenient, self-guided care. Unlike what you’d find in the store, these take-home trays will be tailor-made to fit your unique smile. In about 2 weeks, you should be able to get an even, beautifully white smile from the comfort of your home.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
While convenience is nice, sometimes speed is even better. In-office teeth whitening can be completed in as little as an hour, which makes it excellent if you need to have a smile ready for a big day. The ingredients are both safe and effective, meaning that we can guarantee that you’ll get incredible results.
Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile
Once you’ve spent the money, it’s worth protecting your investment. Luckily, there’s plenty to do if you want to preserve your white smile. For one, you may want to avoid foods and beverages that stains the teeth.
Keep up with solid oral hygiene and eat foods that are rich in calcium to keep your teeth shining as long as possible.
