Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that includes bleaching your teeth to make them whiter. The best method to keep your smile healthy and bright is to take care of your teeth and gums, but it's not uncommon to require some assistance.
You may be considering teeth whitening for a variety of reasons. Teeth can become discolored as they age, but they can also become stained if you smoke or drink a lot of tea, coffee, or red wine.
Fortunately, our skilled whitening procedures at Next Level Dental, P.C. remove stains fast and safely, without harming your teeth. Thousands of patients have gained confidence as a result of a brighter, whiter smile.
What Is Tooth Whitening?
Tooth whitening is a process that is used to either restore your teeth to their natural white color or to make them whiter than normal. The process brightens your smile by changing the natural colors of your teeth.
Discoloration of the teeth can be extrinsic or intrinsic. Excess fluoride, medicines, or age can all produce intrinsic discoloration. Extrinsic discoloration is caused by the usage of coffee, tea, and wine.
Why Would You like to Have My Teeth Whitened?
You may desire to have your teeth whitened for a variety of reasons. Very few people have pearly white teeth, and our teeth can become discolored as we age.
'Calculus' or tartar may have an impact on the color of your teeth. Some people may have staining beneath the surface of their teeth, which can be caused by medications or microscopic fissures in the teeth that absorb stains.
Teeth Whitening Procedure
To whiten the patients' teeth professionally, our dentist utilizes a stronger bleaching solution. It contains more hydrogen peroxide, which aids in teeth whitening. Because the treatment is non-invasive and provides no discomfort to the patient, anesthesia is not necessary.
The whitening gel is applied to the teeth and left on for some time. A unique light is shone on the teeth, which helps to strengthen the treatment and deliver faster results. To obtain the desired result, the whitening gel is reapplied to the teeth. Following the whitening procedure, the dentist gives the patient a shade card to examine the change in the color of the teeth. The treatment gives the patient an immediate response that is noticeable in less than an hour.
