What Is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is one of the simplest and most effective cosmetic options for enhancing your smile. While there are many over-the-counter whitening options available, professional whitening treatment is faster, more effective, and more comfortable, working to give you a noticeably brighter smile that will boost your self-confidence.
How Do Teeth Whitening Work?
Teeth whiteners involves the use of a special whitening gel. This gel is powerful, yet safe, and is carefully applied to your teeth to break up stains and discolorations. If you receive in-office whitening, our orthodontist will activate this gel with a special light to speed up the whitening process, allowing you to leave our office after just one visit with a noticeably brighter smile. If you choose take-home whitening, this gel will be placed into special trays which you will then wear as directed. The gel will gradually lighten the color of your teeth until you achieve your ideal shade of white.
Factors Which Cause Tooth Discoloration
Your teeth may become discolored due to factors such as:
- The natural aging process
- Poor dental hygiene
- Frequent consumption of foods and drinks that stain teeth
- Use of tobacco products, including smoking
- Illness or the use of certain medications
