Tooth whitening is popular, in fact, professional teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in the world. However, some people take it too far in their quest to have the whitest and brightest smile possible using over the counter products that when used too often can damage teeth.
The Problem with Over the Counter Whiteners
Over the counter tooth whitening polishes, strips, rinses, pastes and those one size fits all trays do not have the same strength as professional teeth whitening products.
Because they aren’t as strong, people tend to use too much too often. Bela Family Dentistry has seen people whose teeth look blue or like chalk because of too much tooth whitening.
Professional Teeth Whitening for White Teeth
Bela Family Dentistry offers patients two types of professional tooth whitening, take home trays and in office whitening. Both cosmetic dentistry treatments are monitored so you don’t have to worry about chalky or blue teeth.
In Office Teeth Whitening
For special occasions and white teeth in a single dental appointment, schedule an appointment with Bela Family Dentistry for in office teeth whitening. It’s fast, easy and can lighten your teeth up to 10 shades in a little over an hour using a remarkable system that causes less sensitivity than some of the other in-office tooth whitening systems.
In-office teeth whitening is perfect if you don’t have two weeks to wait for a dazzling new smile.
Take Home Tooth Whitening Trays
If you don’t need white teeth in an hour, take home trays are the way to go. The team from Bela Dentistry will make molds of your teeth for your new trays. Once your trays are ready, you can start the process wearing your customized whitening trays and gel overnight or as per your dentist’s instructions.
You will see results in about 14 to 21 days. It is also important to note that with customized trays you don’t have to worry about product seepage, which causes gum sensitivity and other issues.
Professional Teeth Whitening Works
While teeth whitening works on natural teeth, professional whitening will not lighten teeth that are restored or teeth that have intrinsic or interior staining.
If you are dealing with stained porcelain veneers, cosmetic dental crowns, bonding or implants talk to Bela Dentistry about other procedures that lighten and brighten dull and stained restorations.
