Professional Teeth Whitening
Millions of people complain of dulled or yellowed teeth that take away from their smiles. Discolored teeth can be associated with poor hygiene, but they are also associated with old age, and frailty of the teeth that can be caused by a few different things.
Professional teeth whitening treatments make it easier to achieve a bright smile, sometimes in just one treatment. At Humlicek Family Dental, we use a special tooth whitening product, which works by treating the teeth with hydrogen peroxide gel and then activating the gel to release oxygen ions. These oxygen ions flood your teeth and break down interior and exterior staining to achieve a bright look. This bleaching process is incredibly effective and extremely safe with little to no discomfort.
Questions and Answers
What are the benefits of teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening brightens your smile which can raise confidence, help you appear healthier and happier and younger—even more energetic. This can go a long way in improving your overall appearance and can sometimes be achieved in just one treatment.
How is teeth whitening performed?
Teeth whitening procedures start with covering up vulnerable areas like the lips and gums to prevent exposure. Then a hydrogen peroxide gel is applied directly to the teeth and activates so that it floods the teeth with oxygen ions. The ions break down the staining to whiten the teeth.
How do I whiten my teeth at home?
If you’re looking for a teeth whitening remedy without coming to the dentist, there are a few simple things you can try at home. The most common are over the counter whitening products like whitening tooth paste, mouth washes and strips. However, these solutions are not custom made for your mouth and gum so irritation is likely to occur and the effects will last a much shorter time than professional teeth whitening products.
Additionally, eating more fruits and vegetables limits foods that stain your teeth such as soda, coffee and wine, limit your sugar intake and always remember to brush and floss twice a day—it’s still a powerful tool.
