Eliminate Tough Dental Stains With Professional Teeth Whitening
Many people pursue cosmetic dentistry treatment solely to improve the shade of their teeth. Indeed, professional teeth whitening systems, such as Zoom!, can leave your teeth up to 8 shades whiter in as little as a single appointment. Professional dental whitening tends to be more predictable and produce more noticeable results, so if you want to enhance your smile for a big event or just for everyday reasons, see your dentist for this treatment.
How Teeth Whitening Works
Your teeth can become stained or discolored for a number of reasons. Some of the foods that you eat or the beverages that you drink can leave behind stains, such as coffee, red wine or berries. Some medications can cause discoloration of the teeth, as can excessive fluoride exposure. The teeth also develop a yellowish tinge as a result of aging, as the enamel wears down and the underlying dentin is exposed. Dental whitening can make significant improvements in all of these circumstances.
With professional teeth whitening, a strong bleaching agent is applied to the teeth. In-office systems like Zoom! activate this bleaching gel using a special LED light. This helps the bleaching agent take its full effect in as little as an hour.
Professional Treatments vs. Over-The-Counter Options
There are numerous over-the-counter teeth whitening options available in retail stores, but patients who are looking for optimal results should work with cosmetic dentistry professionals. With the stronger bleaching agents they use, professional quality treatments produce better results.
Regardless of whether you choose professional teeth whitening or an over-the-counter product, it’s important to remember that your results will not be permanent. You’ll need to plan for touch-up treatments periodically. Limiting your exposure to staining agents and maintaining a robust oral hygiene regimen can help you extend the period of time between these treatments, however.
