Teeth Whitening Options
Chances are, you’ve seen many teeth whitening products before. There is no shortage of toothpaste, mouthwashes, gels, and strips that promise a quick route to enjoy a whiter smile. While these treatments can be somewhat effective, they can take weeks to work and produce only minor results. For a dramatically whiter smile, it’s recommended that you choose a professional in-office treatment like one at our dentistry near you in Weymouth. Not only is this treatment more effective and long-lasting, but it can be safer as well. Teeth whitening agents can result in tooth sensitivity, and this risk is higher with a treatment that you do yourself. Your dentist at Aesthetic & Restorative Dentistry is experienced in providing whitening treatments and can carefully administer the whitening agent to keep your teeth and gums safe.
Teeth Whitening Procedure
A whitening procedure is fairly quick – you can be in and out of our office in about an hour. Before starting the treatment, your dentist will first clean the teeth. The gums will be protected by having a gel applied to them. The teeth whitening solution will then be applied to the teeth. The active ingredient in this solution is usually a concentrated amount of hydrogen peroxide. It will be activated with a special whitening light. Your dentist will repeat the process of applying the solution and using the whitening light two or three times more until the desired shade is reached. When the treatment is completed, you will go home with a dramatically whiter smile.
To make your results last longer, it’s recommended that you avoid tooth-staining foods and drinks such as tea, wine, coffee, and tomato sauce. You can also use an at-home whitening kit to maintain your results.
