The Professional Tooth Whitening Process
After some preparation of the teeth and gums has taken place, your cosmetic dentist will use a special gel that will help get rid of stains. These are generally stubborn stains that have been around for years and that no amount of whitening toothpaste or over-the-counter whitening kits could eliminate.
After treatment, you will see teeth that are dramatically whiter than when you sat down in the dentist's chair. You can immediately enjoy a smile that is many shades whiter! The whole process from start to finish is only about an hour!
As mentioned, if you continue to follow up with our take-home bleaching system, your results will last even longer. And stay away from those tooth-staining foods and drinks!
Is Sensitivity Associated with Professional Teeth Whitening?
There are often reports of gum sensitivity or irritation after over-the-counter whitening treatments. The story behind that is that these kits are often used incorrectly. Most people who undergo the whitening treatment say that they felt little to no discomfort of the teeth or gums afterward.
If you have a sensitive gag reflex, you might find the procedure a bit awkward. If this sounds like something you might be concerned about, feel free to talk to us before treatment. We can give you more information so you'll know what to expect.
Are the Results Long-Lasting?
Before going through the professional treatment, you might be wondering if it is worth it. Just how long will your teeth stay white?
The truth is that much like the shade of white you desire will vary from patient to patient, so too will the length of time your results will last. This will depend on a number of factors, including genetics, but more will depend on what you do after your initial whitening treatment.
Your dentist will give you a kit you can use at-home to continue whitening your teeth. In addition, if you stay away from the lifestyle choices that might have stained your teeth in the first place, you can also expect your teeth to stay whiter for a longer period of time. Smoking, coffee, tea, and red wine all have a staining effect on the teeth, so it's best to avoid them.
