Teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to restore a shade of whiteness to your smile. It can be done in your dentist's office or at home with over-the-counter products.
Teeth whitening is an easy and safe way to restore a shade of whiteness to your smile. The procedure can be performed in-office by your dentist or you can use at-home products that you apply yourself.
The process involves using special bleaching agents that will remove stains from enamel and make the teeth look whiter. These products are safe and effective, but they may cause some side effects like tooth sensitivity or gum irritation if used improperly or for too long.
Professional teeth whitening uses a special bleaching gel to safely remove surface stains from your teeth. The gel contains hydrogen peroxide, which is a mild bleach that helps break down the colored compounds on the surface of your enamel. When you apply the gel, it's important to wear protective eyewear and avoid touching or swallowing the product. The procedure lasts between 20 minutes and an hour depending on how much time you want to devote to it; when finished, you'll have whiter-looking teeth!
Professional teeth whitening may not be right for everyone--it's important that you talk with your dentist before making any decisions about treatment options like this one!
In-office teeth whitening usually requires about an hour of time for treatment. The dentist will apply the gel to your teeth and leave it on for 20 minutes or more. He or she will then rinse your teeth and you can eat and drink normally.
If you prefer an at-home whitening system, there are many options available that are safe and effective when used as directed by a professional dental care provider (your dentist).
Most people see significant results in as little as one day, with improvement continuing over the next seven days after treatment. You'll notice that your teeth are whiter, but you may also notice other changes such as increased gum health and fresh breath.
To maintain your new smile and keep it looking great for years to come:
When you have teeth whitening gel applied to your teeth, it's important to leave the gel in place for as long as directed by your dentist or dental hygienist. The time varies depending on the type of product being used, but generally speaking, you should leave it on for 20 minutes or more. When it comes to removing the tray from your mouth after this time has passed, make sure not to rinse off any remaining product with water--you could risk staining or eroding enamel if too much exposure occurs during removal!
Once all traces of gel have been removed from around each tooth surface (or at least what feels like all), perhaps take a moment before walking out into public again just so everyone can see how white they look now that they've been professionally bleached by professionals who know what they're doing...
After treatment, most people can eat and drink normally soon after leaving the office or using at-home products such as trays or strips. You will be given instructions on what to do to take care of your teeth after whitening treatment. It is important that you follow these instructions carefully so that you get the best result possible.
It is important to brush twice daily and floss once daily to keep your teeth healthy and clean!
