Professional Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening

The most common causes of teeth discoloration include aging, and consuming staining substances such as coffee, tea, colas, tobacco and red wine. Also certain antibiotic and excessive fluoride ingestion during teeth formation can also cause teeth discoloration.

Professional Teeth whitening is a well established procedure in cosmetic dentistry. Hydrogen peroxide is the active ingredient and has been used for many years in the treatment of gums and other oral soft tissue. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth id unchanged.

We provide Professional Teeth Whitening System that is effective on most discolored teeth. The degree of whiteness will vary from patient to patient depending on the structure of the teeth. Darker stains such as those caused by antibiotics are more difficult to whiten.

At home teeth whitening remedies vs in office teeth whitening:

At home teeth whitening remedies are given a custom tray that holds the solution against your teeth for the prescribed amount of time. Treatment usually takes 3-7 days to get desired results.

In office teeth whitening uses a much higher concentration of the whitening agent. Because of this the gums and lips must be isolated. The solution is also activated with an ultraviolet light. Results are achieved in about an hour.
