Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, so you want it to be the best it can be. While over-the-counter teeth whitening products are available, nothing beats professional teeth whitening to brighten your smile.
Brighten Your Smile Today!
Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. A bright, white smile can make a great first impression and leave a lasting impression. But over time, your teeth can become stained and yellowed from coffee, tea, cigarettes, and red wine. If you want to brighten your smile and boost your confidence, professional teeth whitening may be for you. Advanced Dentistry & Implant Center uses cutting-edge technologies to brighten your teeth by several shades in one session.
What is Teeth Whitening?
Professional teeth whitening is a process that uses bleaching agents to remove stains and discoloration from teeth. The procedure generally involves applying peroxide-based bleaching agents to the teeth, following which a special chairside lamp catalyzes the gel’s bleaching properties. The bleaching agents used in professional teeth whitening are stronger than those available to consumers over the counter, and as a result, professional teeth whitening can provide better results in a shorter amount of time.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening:
- Removes surface stains from the enamel
- Brightens your teeth by several shades
- Improves the overall aesthetic value of the teeth
- Improves self-esteem and confidence
- Faster, safer, and more effective than at-home whitening
Professional Whitening vs. At-Home Whitening
Professional teeth whitening is done by a dentist or dental hygienist. This method uses a stronger bleaching agent than what’s available over the counter and can whiten teeth several shades in just one visit. The bleaching agent is applied to your teeth and then activated with a special light. The process takes about an hour, and you’ll see results immediately.
At-home teeth whitening uses a weaker bleaching agent than professional teeth whitening. The kit comes with a mouthguard-like tray that you fill with the bleaching gel and then wear for a certain period, typically 30 to 60 minutes. The results are not as dramatic as professional teeth whitening, and you may need several weeks to see the results.
The Teeth Whitening Process
Professional teeth whitening is a simple, in-office procedure. The dentist applies a concentrated hydrogen peroxide bleaching agent to your teeth, taking extra care to avoid applying it to the lips and gums. After applying the bleaching gel, the dentist uses a heating system to make the compound penetrate deeper into the enamel. Each session lasts 15 minutes and can be repeated several times until you achieve the desired shade.
