Teeth Whitening

 

A bright and even smile can be one of the most magnetic features of an individual. It can also portray an individual as confident, positive and happy. Unfortunately, not all people are born with teeth that they want to show off in public. Don’t worry because there is good news for those who don’t have perfect teeth! Teeth whitening offers a simple way to correct your natural tooth color, so you get the pearly whites you’ve always wanted. This article takes you through what teeth whitening is, how it works, and the advantages it offers so you can get started on your own journey towards getting that gorgeous smile!

What is teeth whitening?

The teeth become discolored when you get older, and they are stained because of the food and drinks you take such as coffee, tea and even smoking. Calculus, more commonly known as tartar, also changes the shade of teeth. Teeth whitening is an effective technique of lightening the shade of your teeth without removing the tooth surface. It may not be a total color change, but it lightens the original shade.

The most common approach to teeth whitening is the application of professional bleaching. As you proceed to the treatment, the dental team attaches a rubber shield or applies gel on your gums to protect them from the procedure. Then the tooth whitening product will be applied to your teeth. This whitening product contains an active agent, and it can be carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. When the active agent breaks down, oxygen penetrates the enamel on the teeth making the shade lighter.

The treatment may last for 3 to 4 weeks, including home treatment, where you need to continue applying the whitening product regularly at home.

There are different types of teeth whitening that you may want to consider:

  • LED teeth whitening kits that are doable at home
  • Professional teeth whitening or in-office treatment
  • Over-the-counter whitening products
  • At-home teeth whitening solutions
  • Whitening pens

The whitening treatment is not for toddlers, pregnant women, nursing mothers, those who have undergone dental restorations, and if you have cavities, gum disease, and exposed tooth roots.

What are the benefits?

Having pearly-white teeth can boost your confidence and self-esteem because it enhances your appearance like our satisfied patients in our Blue Springs location. You can also achieve a healthier mouth as you maintain a set of whiter teeth.

What results can you expect?

Your teeth will become up to 10 shaeds llighter after the treatment. The result may last for 2 to 3 years, depending on the treatment and maintenance. It is best to avoid frequent smoking and drinking colored beverages to avoid immediate teeth discoloration.

What should you do before and after treatment?

Before the treatment, you will clean your teeth first. After the treatment, you may feel that your teeth become sensitive, discomfort in the gums, white patches on the gum line, or sore throat. The side effects should disappear within a few days. In case side effects persist, consult your health care professional.

Who is the treatment for?

Teeth whitening is for people who want to achieve brilliant-white teeth. You may visit your dentist to find out if you are suitable for the treatment.
