Certain habits, foods, and beverages can contribute to a stained, dull, or discolored smile that cannot be fixed by over-the-counter teeth whitening products. To remove years of stains in just one session, turn to Confident Smiles for professional teeth whitening services. Professional whitening performed by our office is considered to be the most effective method and can last as long as five years.
Many things can lead to the discoloring of teeth. Products like coffee, berries, and soy sauce are notorious for tarnishing teeth. And over time, teeth actually become more absorbent and vulnerable to products like these. Traumatic injuries and medications can also cause stains. They begin inside the tooth, so brushing and flossing cannot remove them. Age can also be a factor as teeth can naturally discolor over time.
The teeth whitening process uses a bleaching gel containing hydrogen and carbamide peroxide. When the gel is applied to the tooth, it assists in safely removing stains and leaving you with a brighter smile. Depending on your teeth and your situation, you may choose in-house whitening, take-home whitening, or both. The path that you choose will determine the length of the process. Having your teeth whitened in-office, the procedure can take one to three hours. Choose the at-home option, and the process can take three to four days to begin seeing results and two weeks to see the finished product.
Whichever option you decide, you can count on Confident Smiles to use teeth whitening products approved by the American Dental Association to guarantee your safety. Your teeth may feel sensitive for up to 48 hours after the procedure, but this is nothing to worry about. Our teeth whitening services will not damage your dental health.
ZOOM!® Teeth Whitening
ZOOM! Teeth whitening is a faster teeth whitening alternative. It can be done at the office or home, and you will see results within one hour. Just apply the special gel and use the ZOOM!® light, and you will have a whiter smile before you know it.
In-House vs. Take-Home Whitening
Professional teeth whitening services can be performed in the office or prescribed for take-home use. In-house whitening is the fastest way to whiten your teeth, and you will see instant results. On the other hand, at-home whitening is more affordable and can be more convenient for certain patients. The dentist will create custom trays that you will fill with whitening gel and wear for a set amount of time decided by your dentist.
Should I Get Professional Teeth Whitening?
If you are pregnant, have sensitive or damaged teeth, or have gum disease, then professional teeth whitening is not recommended.
