So, how bright are your pearly whites?
There are few things that affect your appearance and self-esteem, like discoloration of teeth. Various causes including smoking, age, certain foods, medications or environmental factors contribute to stains. Therefore, you may struggle with stained teeth, even if you maintain outstanding dental hygiene.
Fortunately, at Affordable Dentist in Grand Prairie, we offer highly effective teeth whitening treatment, both in-office and at-home methods.
Once a thorough exam of your teeth, gums and supporting bone structure has been conducted, the dentist will be able to determine if you are a candidate for teeth whitening. If the agreed-upon treatment is an in-office, the process includes the following:
- Preparing your mouth by covering your lips and gums so that only your teeth are exposed
- Applying a professional peroxide-based whitening gel to your teeth
- Activating the gel with a specially designed light for 15 minutes so that oxygen molecules penetrate the surface and break apart the bonds that hold stains together
- Inviting you to watch TV, read magazines or listen to music as you relax in the chair
- Reapplying another layer of gel and light treatment two more times
The procedure lasts for 45 minutes to provide you with a smile up to eight shades lighter.
At-Home Teeth Whitening in Grand Prairie
At-home teeth whitening can produce comparable results to in-office care, although it will take longer to achieve the final effects. You will be provided with a set of custom made whitening trays designed to fit your mouth comfortably and firmly around your teeth. The trays are filled with whitening gel before you wear them, for an approx 30 minutes a day, typically for two weeks. Depending on your convenience, you can also go for overnight options. Once the full course of treatment is completed, you will be able to enjoy the results comparable to in-office treatment.
Which Method Is Right For You?
Both in-office and at-home treatments provide similar results; therefore the right method should be based on other factors, such as:
If schedule is a priority, if there’s a big upcoming event, you may opt for in-office treatment for immediate results.
If you are strict in your finances, at-home teeth whitening may be a more economical option.
If you have sensitive teeth or gums, dentist-supervised treatment may be a better option.
