These days there are many products and treatments available for patients who want a brighter, whiter smile. With all that’s out there, deciding which method is best can be difficult. At Lawrence Dental Excellence, in Kingston, PA, we can help you make that choice. For patients who are interested in achieving a brighter smile quickly, we recommend in-office professional teeth whitening.
How Teeth Become Stained
There are many factors that can lead to discolored, dull-looking teeth. For starters, the pigments in the foods and beverages we consume can stain the teeth. Red wine, coffee, tea, red pasta sauce, and acidic fruits are among the most common. Certain lifestyle choices such as smoking or using tobacco can cause teeth to yellow. And lastly, there are other factors such as genetics, aging, and certain medications.
What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a fast and effective cosmetic treatment that can dramatically whiten the enamel of your teeth by several shades in just a single appointment.
What to Expect with In-Office Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is a quick in-office procedure that does not require the use of anesthesia. Individuals with a strong gag reflex can talk to us about our options for sedation. The first step in the process is to clean and dry the teeth so that the bleaching agent can be absorbed evenly by the teeth.
A protective barrier is used on the gums. Next, the whitening agent is applied to the teeth and then activated by a special light. This allows the bleaching agent to penetrate the enamel and break down stains. The entire process may be repeated until the desired shade is achieved.
Candidates for In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening from Lawrence Dental Excellence in Kingston, PA is an excellent option for almost any patient who wishes to have a brighter smile after just one appointment. It’s important to note that teeth whitening is not effective on restorations such as crowns or bridges. Additionally, patients must be in good oral health before undergoing teeth whitening.
