How Do I Get Great Results Whitening?
Is your smile as bright as you want it to be? Maybe you’ve already tried the special kinds of toothpaste and the over-the-counter kits that promised brilliant white teeth without seeing a difference. The main reason those kits you can buy anywhere don't work is that they aren’t strong enough.
No matter whether you are using an at-home kit or receiving your whitening from a dentist, the bleaching agent is hydrogen peroxide-based. The strength of the bleaching agents in the over-the-counter stuff is usually less than 20%. Stronger bleaching agents aren’t available to the public because of the danger involved with using them. Follow instructions carefully since when the gels are left on the teeth too long, they can damage the enamel of your teeth. The “bleached effect” is the result when the teeth dehydrate, causing a brittle, translucent appearance of the teeth.
What is the Best Teeth Whitening product Available?
A better whitening agent is available at Green Grove Dental. The whitening agents in an in-office whitening can be as high as 43%, but these require professional oversight to avoid tooth damage. Dr. Dhaliwal and Dr. Shewchuk are experts at making patients teeth whiter.
The professional procedures can make your teeth up to 10 times brighter and in a much shorter time. A single procedure lasts only from 30 to 60 minutes, but it may take several office visits to get the desired results.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
There are usually no side effects from whitening treatments, except for possible tooth sensitivity, but this goes away relatively quickly (a couple of days), if you experience it at all. The most problems with hypersensitivity are seen in patients who have a problem with hypersensitivity before they have a whitening procedure. Avoid whitening when sensitivity is present. The dentists at Green Grove Dental will discuss all of the pros and cons of the whitening procedures with you at your consultation. Be sure to mention any sensitivities you have during this discussion.
Convenient Whitening at Home or In-Office
Not all professional whitening systems available at Green Grove are in-office procedures. Discolored yellowed teeth react best to whitening. If the color of the teeth is grayish, the bleaching may not be as effective. Some teeth change color because of disease or medications. This kind of change resists whitening, although discoloration by tetracycline has been known to be lightened by longer bleaching sessions to allow the bleach to reach the dentine layer of the teeth. This type of prolonged treatment would certainly need professional supervision.
Affordable Teeth Whitening in St. Albert
Whitening maintenance is important after the procedures are done. Of course, a good oral hygiene routine will go a long way in keeping you “pearly white.” Be sure to avoid high-staining foods and drinks for at 48 hours after each procedure.
If bleach whitening is not determined to be a good choice for you, veneers could be another option, especially if stained or discolored teeth are affecting self-confidence. Call Green Grove Dental today to discuss your options for teeth whitening in St. Albert.Teeth Whitening St Albert
