A smile is a prominent feature of your face that will go a long way in boosting your self-confidence. Nowadays, people are making all efforts to enhance the aesthetics of their smiles. Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that can quickly renovate your smile. Though several whitening products are available in drug stores, they cannot provide the same results as professional teeth whitening services. At Amin Tabatabaian DDS PLLC, we offer different teeth whitening treatments to help you achieve a bright, flawless smile.
What Is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a standard, non-invasive cosmetic dental treatment that can change the color of natural tooth enamel and upgrade the beauty of your smile. Bleaching agents such as hydrogen peroxide are generally used to whiten your teeth. The teeth whitening effects are not permanent, and the procedure may have to be repeated often to maintain your pearly whites.
Why Is Teeth Whitening Needed?
The appearance of your smile can remarkably impact many areas of your life, be it personal or professional life. Unfortunately, many people suffer from discoloration and stains on their teeth due to reasons that are beyond our control. The causes of our teeth changing color include:
- Drinking beverages like tea, coffee, cola, red wine
- Coloring agents present in certain foods
- Smoking and chewing tobacco
- Drugs like tetracycline
- Hereditary factors
- Normal aging process
- Excess fluorides in water
- Tooth discoloration due to an injury.
Teeth Whitening Methods
In-Office Teeth Whitening
The teeth whitening performed at our office can make your teeth at least eight times brighter than your previous shade. We use a whitening gel composed of hydrogen peroxide, and it works to remove all the stains off your teeth. In this method, we will first screen your teeth for infections and other problems. After screening, the gel is applied to the teeth and spread evenly. The gel is left on the teeth' surface for half an hour and is later rinsed off.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
We also provide customized plastic trays to remove stains from your teeth. This system involves taking a mold of your teeth and using it to fabricate a customized plastic tray. You will have to wear this tray as prescribed, along with a whitening gel. The home whitening system can be more convenient, though it may take longer to reflect the effects.
