A person’s teeth may become discolored for many reasons. Foods that contain natural dyes can darken them or even simple aging can cause them to loose there shine. Teeth whitening can be a simple process, which can involve minimal discomfort. At Expressions Dental™ Clinic, we provide in-office and take home teeth whitening options depending on what will suit you.
What is a Teeth Whitening Procedure?
At Expressions Dental™ Clinic, our dental team uses a professional tooth whitening process with an LED light. This is done in one visit. We can also make you custom bleaching trays and provide you whitening gel so that you can do your own whitening at home. Discoloration and yellowing can disappear with the bleaching process that minimizes staining, creating a whiter, brighter smile. Although your smile may only need to go a few shades lighter, the effects of Zoom Teeth Whitening will be perceptible. Keep in mind that avoiding staining beverages, foods and nicotine can help keep your smile whiter longer.
Age, lifestyle and everyday use can eventually lead to tooth enamel discoloration. The effects of teeth whitening last different lengths of time for every patient, depending mainly on your habits, home care, and whether or not you use touch-up whitening treatments. Our dental team will discuss all of the details with you and share tips on keeping your smile bright for a long while.
Who should consider teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is an option available for permanent teeth that are discolored. One may consider teeth whitening before initiating cosmetic restorations on the front teeth. Once whitening is done, the restorations can be matched to your new shade. In office whitening is also convenient for people who want to get it done in one shot instead of doing home whitening which takes more than one session.
What are the things one must consider before undergoing the treatment?
Zoom Teeth Whitening procedures can be very effective. However, there are also certain things one needs to consider like sore gums or sensitive teeth resulting from the bleaching treatment. It is usually short term and goes away. There are also some patients who experience discomfort wearing the mouth-tray in a custom-fit tray bleaching process. This generally takes place when the tray is not perfectly aligned with the teeth.
