Amazing Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

Posted by Jeanne V. Devi DDS on Feb 19 2019, 04:25 AM

Teeth whitening works best when performed by a professional. True, your local drug shop sells several tooth bleaching solutions. Some of them are truly quite effective. Still, there's something to be said for having your teeth whitened by a dentist. Individuals can benefit from teeth whitening services provided by Jeanne V. Devi DDS, resulting in whiter teeth.

Causes of Stained Teeth

  • Coffee, tea, dark sodas, red wine, and even some fruits and vegetables have been linked to stained teeth.
  • Both smoking and chewing tobacco can cause stained teeth.
  • Tooth discoloration can be caused by poor dental hygiene, such as insufficient brushing or flossing.
  • Some medical treatments, such as high blood pressure drugs, chemotherapy, antihistamines, and some antipsychotic medications, can induce teeth discoloration.

How Does Professional Teeth Whitening Work?

Your dentist will take a picture of your present tooth color before beginning treatment. The surface of your teeth is then polished to remove plaque and other dirt.

Following that, the dentist will apply a whitening solution to the surface of the teeth, which will commonly comprise hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. To activate the peroxide, several of the whitening products require the use of a laser or light.

The solution should be left on your teeth for 30 minutes to an hour, along with the light or laser, for best effects. Following that, your teeth are washed, and fluoride may be applied to alleviate sensitivity. 

The Advantages of Professional Teeth Whitening

Customized Treatments

Over-the-counter remedies cannot be tailored to each individual's whitening preferences. Professional whitening, on the other hand, can be tailored to provide you with the specific quantity of whiteness that you like and in the places that require it the most.

Safer and More Comfortable Treatment

Over-the-counter teeth whitening products can harm the gum tissue in your mouth. This might cause discomfort and make your teeth sensitive to certain meals and beverages. Professional whitening treatment is significantly safer and more comfortable because you have an experienced specialist executing the procedure and monitoring the development every step of the way.

Professional Teeth Whitening Requires Less Time

DIY teeth bleaching can take several weeks, and there is no guarantee of flawless results. A dentist, on the other hand, will bleach a patient's teeth over a short period, and the process will only require a few visits in the dentist's chair.
