In-office bleaching provides the quickest way to whiten teeth.
A higher concentration of the bleaching material is applied directly to the teeth. These products in combination with heat, special light or laser can only be used under the supervision of your dentist.
Dramatic results can be seen after the first treatment that typically lasts 30-60mintues.
In order to keep your pearly whites sparkling longer, our dentist will recommend you to use Home Bleaching Kits.
It involves filling a mouth guard-like tray with a gel whitening solution that is worn as instructed by the dentist.
Your dentist will guide you on how to cope with the transient tooth sensitivity that normally lasts for a few days after the treatment:
- Use a high fluoride-containing product, which can help remineralize your teeth.
- Brush teeth with a toothpaste made for sensitive teeth.
- Wear the tray for a shorter period of time.
- Stop whitening your teeth for two to three days to allow them to recover from the treatment.
Teeth whitening is a perfectly safe treatment but it is not permanent.
The degree of whiteness will vary from one individual to another depending on the condition of your teeth, the level of staining, and the type of bleaching system used.
With proper care and home bleaching kits you can maintain the new sparkling shade of your teeth.
