Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of your natural teeth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile. http://bit.ly/eyiEZt Professional teeth whitening is a good alternative to drug store whitening kits not approved by the Canadian Dental Association – They may not be ph balance and may etch the teeth and cause more staining in the future. We use sapphire whitening because we found it provided less issues with sensitivity in patients than the zoom whitening system we had previously used in our practice.
Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth. The most popular method is using our take home teeth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically. Since teeth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.
There are two choices for our Take-home Whiteing System.
Day White: Whitening is done during the day for up to 1 hour.
Nite White: Whitening is done overnight while you sleep for 6-8 hours.
Teeth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up maybe needed every several years, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.
Reasons for teeth whitening:
Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).
Normal wear of outer tooth layer.
Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
Yellow, brown stained teeth.
What does teeth whitening involve?
This type of teeth whitening usually requires two visits. At the first appointment, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear plastic, trays. This will allow your full smile to be whitened.
At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit, and adjustments will be made if necessary. The trays are worn with special whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening. It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped bleaching.
You will receive care instructions for your teeth and trays, and be encouraged to visit your dentist regularly to help maintain a beautiful, healthy, white smile.
