Teeth whitening first became a major trend in Hollywood and has since made its way into the homes of everyday people around the world. Good looking, healthy whiter and brighter teeth is the number one item that people want to improve their smile, Teeth Whitening works well if you have teeth that have been darkened from coffee, tea, age, medication or smoking. Dentists sometimes discourage whitening for people who have sensitive teeth. There are several safe and effective Teeth Whitening treatments to choose from, you will achieve great results from any of the treatments that we recommend.
The fastest method of Teeth Whitening is performed by your dentist, this is because the tooth bleaching materials used by your Dentist are much stronger than at-home kits. Also the solution used by your Dentist is often augmented with heat and or light (as in Zoom Whitening), resulting in faster / more dramatic shade changes. Please bear in mind that Teeth whitening treatment is not normally covered by standard dental health insurance policies.
Several oTeeth Whitening options are available for bleaching your teeth at home. The most common options are as follows:
- Whitening strips and gels: These are over-the-counter, peroxide based products that are applied to your teeth using a thin strip or a brush. Typically the product needs to be applied once or twice every day for 10 to 14 days to complete the bleaching process.
- Whitening toothpastes: All toothpastes help remove surface tooth staining by using mild abrasives. Teeth Whitening toothpastes use special chemical or polishing agents included that provide additional stain removal effectiveness. Unlike bleaches, these products do not alter the intrinsic color of teeth.
- Tray-based whitening: You can now purchase basic tray-based tooth whitening products over the counter or you can have a dentist provide custom-fitted trays, moulded in plastic from impressions taken of your teeth. Trays look like thin, transparent, plastic mouthguards. With tray based whitening options, you place a peroxide-based gel on your teeth usually for around one hour a day for up to four weeks at a time
Results from whitening procedures can last anywhere between one to five years, depending on your drinking, eating and smoking habits. Before using any teeth whitening product, we strongly advise that you consult your Dentist. Whether you choose an at-home or in-office whitening treatment, you can help maintain your bright smile by brushing and flossing every day and visiting your Dentist and Dental Hygienist at least once a year.
