Have a Brighter Smile with Teeth Whitening

backmountainTeeth can get stained, whether by food, drink, habits, or age, and once they’ve become discolored, smiling can become difficult. Fortunately, there are several teeth whitening solutions available for you to smile brightly again. Though there are over-the-counter options available, nothing can beat the effectiveness of in-office whitening.

One of the most commonly recommended teeth whitening procedures by dentists is Deep Bleaching™. This involves using a peroxide bleaching gel of varying effectiveness combined with personalized trays for your mouth. It usually takes over an hour or so for one session to be complete.

The teeth whitening process starts with a consultation. If you’re deemed fit for the process, a thorough cleaning is usually done so that your teeth would only have the most stubborn stains on them. It’s also advisable to brush your teeth so that they are as clean as they can be.

The bleaching process is typically done in two appointments, which are set two weeks apart. The initial visit will have the dentist applying personalized trays to your teeth, with the bleaching solution placed on them. This solution will condition your teeth. You then go home and wear the bleach trays every night for two weeks. The final appointment will deliver the last application of bleach and finish your teeth whitening treatment.
