How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
professional Teeth Whitening is by far the best way to whiten teeth fast, safely, effectively, and affordable. Only dentists and dental professionals, such as dental hygienists, are legally allowed to apply teeth whitening gel to your teeth. They are also the only ones truly qualified to evaluate the condition of your teeth to determine if whitening is right for you and which type of whitening treatment is best for you.
Professional teeth whitening removes tooth enamel stains with prescription-strength whitening gel. Teeth whitening is effective for coffee, tea, red wine, nicotine, and most other types of extrinsic (outer enamel) stains. Omni Dental services offers a variety teeth whitening options, and the dedicated team discusses your goals to help you choose the right one for you.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
The majority of modern dental whitening treatments use carbamide peroxide, a harmless byproduct of hydrogen peroxide, to eradicate stains and discoloration. In addition, both in-office and take-home treatments undergo significant testing and review by regulatory bodies like the FDA to ensure their both safe and effective. If you have any questions about your whitening treatment, let Dr. Poles know and he’ll be happy to explain further.
Do You Offer More Than One Type Of Teeth Whitening Treatment?
At Omni Dental, Dr. Poles offers two types of dental whitening treatments:
In-Office Tooth Whitening
During an in-office whitening appointment, Dr. Poles carefully applies a bleaching solution to the surface of your teeth. After letting the solution sit for 15 minutes, he points a special light at your teeth that triggers a chemical bleaching reaction. Dr. Poles repeats this step three to four times, revealing teeth that are up to eight shades whiter.
Take-Home Tooth Whitening
Take-home whitening treatment doesn’t provide as quick of results, but it allows you to brighten your teeth at your own pace. First, Dr. Poles takes molds of your teeth and sends them to a laboratory that makes custom mouth trays. After you receive your custom mouth trays, you place a bleaching solution inside them and wear them for between two to three hours each day. Ultimately, this whitening process eradicates stains and brightens your teeth.
Is Teeth Whitening Treatment Permanent?
Unfortunately, dental whitening treatment isn’t permanent. However, there are steps you can take to extend your results. For example, Dr. Poles recommends you brush and floss regularly and visit Omni Dental Care every six months for a professional cleaning. He also recommends changing the foods and beverages you consume. For example, Instead of drinking dark-colored sodas or coffee, opt for water. You may also want to avoid eating certain foods that stain, such as pasta sauce or blueberries.
