All About Teeth-Whitening
Even if your teeth are perfectly healthy, they might not be as bright and white as you’d like. Most people wish that their smile were whiter. Fortunately, there’s an effective solution – teeth whitening treatment at your dentist office. While there are whitening treatments available at your local drugstore, these are not as effective as professional treatments because they contain a lower concentration of the active whitening agent, and they can only treat surface stains rather than producing a truly whiter smile. Typical in-office treatments, also called chairside whitening, usually take 45 minutes to an hour.
Following the procedure, you may be provided with an at-home treatment to help you maintain your white smile. People who have teeth sensitivity should inform their dentist of this before undergoing the treatment; he or she may have to adjust the concentration of the whitening product or provide a product to help treat the sensitivity.
Teeth Whitening helps you restore the lost shine of your teeth and brighten your smile.
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure for patients over 18 years of age. Your teeth should be free of cavities and periodontal disease, if exists, should be under control. If you have sensitive teeth, Dr.Xavier can provide diagnosis and discuss the different options for you.
