How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Professional teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment designed to give you a noticeably whiter smile. The procedure uses a medical-grade whitening gel that not only penetrates deep-set stains but also bleaches the enamel on your teeth. The solution contains hydrogen peroxide, an ingredient that has been proven to be completely safe to use on natural teeth when handled by a professional dentist.
Professional teeth whitening can brighten teeth that have become discolored due to a variety of causes, such as:
- Red wine, coffee, or tea
- Smoking/tobacco use
- Insufficient oral hygiene
- Prescription medications
If you believe you can benefit from professional teeth whitening, reach out to our office to schedule a consultation. Your dentist can examine your smile and design an appropriate course of treatment that targets your specific needs.
The Advantages of Professional Teeth Whitening
You can purchase over the counter whitening products at your local pharmacy, but many of them are ineffective and provide lackluster results. Whitening strips, mouthwashes, and toothpastes often have a minimal impact on the brightness of your smile, and many of them can include harmful chemicals. Our professional teeth whitening treatments at Smile Moore Dentistry use a prescription-strength whitening solution that has been proven to produce a stunning transformation. Our treatments are supervised by a dental practitioner, so you can rest assured that your teeth whitening session is completely safe.
The Teeth Whitening Process
If you decide to come into our office for your teeth whitening treatment, your session will involve a minor teeth cleaning and the application of a prescription-strength whitening gel to your smile. The procedure is entirely painless and non-invasive. Most teeth whitening sessions take under an hour to complete, but your time may vary depending on the condition of your smile and your desired results.
If you have opted to try one of our professional take-home kits, your dentist will give you thorough instructions on how to properly use the system. Your take-home kit may include dental trays to wear at night or during the day. You may also be given a topical gel to complement your main treatment.
