Benefits of teeth whitening :

  • A revamped, vibrant smile that sparkles
  • It is a quick and easy way of smile makeovers
  • It is non-invasive
  • It is painless
  • A dentist guided at-home teeth whitening option is also available for patients.

Types of teeth whitening services:

  • Teeth Whitening(in-office)

a.  A dentist completes the 60-minute procedure over the course of two appointments. To achieve the desired shade, a concentrated peroxide-based bleaching gel is applied to the teeth repeatedly at brief intervals. 

The chemical reaction between the bleaching agent and the discolored molecules is the basis for teeth whitening procedures. The stains and discoloration are broken up and removed as the agent oxidizes.

Both hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide are the active ingredients in the majority of whitening products. The strength, effectiveness, and safety level of the whitening systems depend on the concentration of either one of these ingredients. Both have comparable penetrability into the enamel to produce pleasing results.

b. Laser teeth whitening:

A method that involves focusing a laser device on a small group of teeth at once to activate the bleaching gel. The whitening properties of the bleaching gel are activated when the laser heats it. With a laser treatment, you can whiten your teeth by 16 shades. Laser teeth whitening is long-lasting, and the effect can last up to 3 years.

c. Zoom teeth whitening:

Zoom teeth whitening is an option to quickly brighten and whiten your teeth. The outcome is impressive, making your teeth up to eight shades lighter in less than one hour. The teeth are covered with hydrogen peroxide gel for the first 15 minutes of the Zoom teeth-whitening process. A chair side LED lamp is then used to hasten the whitening process.

An effective spin-off of Zoom whitening is the Zoom White Speed treatment, which leaves your teeth much brighter in less than an hour.

An even faster option available is Zoom Quick Pro; a 10-minute tooth whitening procedure. Although it doesn’t whiten teeth as much as the Zoom White Speed option, it costs less and requires less in-office time.

  • Teeth Whitening(at-home)

Dentist guided at-home teeth whitening kits gradually lightens enamel over the course of three to four weeks and comes with the following:

1. Whitening gel
The at-home kits contain similar peroxide gels and instruction manuals.
2. Individualized dental trays 

Instead of a one-size-fits-all tray, a dentist records your impression and fabricates a tray from these molds. The tray carries the whitening gel. They follow the contours of the teeth and allow consistent teeth whitening.

3. Guidance from the dentist

The dentist will advise you on how to use the at-home kit safely and effectively to get the results you want

Expectations and precautions after teeth whitening services:

1. Diet:

There are food and beverage restrictions for 48 hours after the procedure. No foods that stain, such as tea, coffee, spices, or sauces, should be consumed. The reason is that it takes a few days for the tooth’s outer layer to fully reestablish itself after the teeth whitening process.

2. Sensitivity is expected

For a few days, you might feel a little sensitive to the cold and the heat. Usually, this discomfort goes away. Desensitizing toothpastes work wonders in the meantime.

3. No smoking
Even under ideal conditions, smoking discolors and yellows your teeth. It’s a good idea to quit smoking for at least the first few days after having your teeth whitened. Quitting after that entirely benefits your smile, oral health, and general wellbeing.
4. Results and consideration

The initial shade of the tooth, the diet, and oral hygiene practices all have an impact on how long teeth whitening treatments last. Existing crowns, fillings, and bridges do not change color as a result of teeth whitening procedures. We can talk about replacing a restoration if this problem raises aesthetic issues.

The drawbacks of a number of DIY at home teeth whitening services include:

When used improperly without supervision, at-home whiteners or natural ingredients can be very abrasive. The gradual disappearance of the stains can also cause underlying wear and tear of the tooth as well.

Why is professional help best for teeth whitening services in Waterdown:
