Teeth Whitening Candidates
Teeth whitening is an effective and appropriate cosmetic dentistry treatment for virtually any adult who wishes to achieve a brighter smile. This is especially true if you are interested in enhancing the appearance of your smile with porcelain veneers. These porcelain shells are custom-made to conceal minor imperfections in your smile, and to match the shade of your natural teeth. By undergoing a teeth whitening before pursuing porcelain veneers, you can achieve symmetry and brightness in your smile.
The Teeth Whitening Procedure
We use Zoom!™ and BriteSmile® technology to eliminate deep stains and give you a significantly brighter smile in about an hour. Treatment begins with the placement of a guard that will isolate the teeth and protect the soft tissues of the mouth. Next, a carbamide solution is applied directly to the teeth. A blue light is then trained on the teeth, which intensifies the bleaching effect of the solution. After about 15 minutes, the solution is completely removed, and fresh solution is applied. Once again, the light is trained on the teeth. This process is repeated three times. Finally, you can leave our office with a brighter, healthier looking smile.
Some patients may experienced heightened sensitivity to heat and cold immediately after treatment, but this quickly subsides. The effects of your teeth whitening will be dramatic, but may diminish over time. In order to enjoy the maximum benefits of this treatment, it is important to be mindful of foods and habits that can darken your teeth. Stopping tobacco use is always advisable, and can go a long way in preserving a bright white smile. Foods such as mustard, berries, and marinara sauce are especially staining, as are beverages such as teas and coffee. Brushing and flossing regularly can go a long way in curbing the staining effects of these foods, and in preserving the whiteness of your teeth.
