Prescription drugs, along with other factors such as old fillings, tobacco, coffee, teas and colas also can cause teeth to look dull and stained a condition which can be corrected with tooth whitening. Bleaching is a simple, easy procedure, done at home with supplies we provide.
At home tooth whitening systems has been in practice for many years. It is a relatively simple, inexpensive treatment that is very reliable. For some the improvement is little, while for most it's a lot. There are several systems available that involves making a custom fitted tray that fits over the teeth and holds the whitening solution. This tray is worn for 1-2 hours during the day, each day, for 2-3 weeks or until the maximum effect is reached.
The other two teeth whitening systems that our panel dental professionals offer, one is called Brite Smile and another is Zoom. It is an in-office procedure that accomplishes, in one hour visit, the same result as approximately two weeks of daily wear of the at home technique. The difference is more time in the chair (approximately 1½ hours), and the higher cost.
Brightening your smile is as easy as visiting your dentist for a whitening treatment, or purchasing one of the many at-home treatment options available. Using a whitening toothpaste or mouthwash, trying whitening pens, strips or trays are all good ways to supplement your normal oral hygiene habits
What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening involves bleaching your teeth to make them lighter. Teeth whitening can't make your teeth brilliant white, but it can lighten the existing colour by several shades.
Who can perform teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is a form of dentistry and should only be performed by a dentist or another regulated dental professional, such as a dental hygienist or dental therapist, on the prescription of a dentist.
Some beauty salons offer teeth whitening, but this is illegal if there's no dental professional present, and it may put your oral health at risk.
