What is tooth whitening?
As we age, our teeth can become discolored and even yellow. Teeth whitening is an affordable and easy way to brighten up your smile and restore the natural white color of your teeth.
We recommend this procedure for people who:
- Teeth are stained from drinking coffee, tea, or smoking cigarettes.
- Want a brighter smile
- Want to better their oral health
Why should you get your teeth whitened?
- Your teeth look cleaner.
- You’re more confident.
- It prevents cavities and gum disease.
- It helps prevent tooth decay, bad breath, and sensitive teeth.
What is the process of teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is a process that uses a chemical to make your teeth whiter. Your dentist or hygienist will determine what type of whitening procedure is right for you based on factors such as the color of your tooth enamel and how much staining you’ve experienced over time.
Once the decision has been made regarding which method should be used in your case, they may recommend that a tray be made so they can custom-fit it around your mouth to protect against any gum damage during treatment.
- Do not eat or drink anything other than water for one hour after treatment.
- Avoid eating or drinking anything acidic for one hour after treatment (for example, citrus fruits).
- Avoid smoking for 24 hours after treatment.
- Avoid drinking alcohol for 24 hours after treatment.
