Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure used to remove teeth stains and signs of discoloration and improve the overall brightness of the smile. At Gardens Dental Spa, our dentists use a concentrated bleaching solution to whiten your teeth. The bleaching agent is activated using a special light that allows it to penetrate the surface of your teeth and whiten them from the inside out. Most patients see fantastic results after just one treatment session, but occasionally touch-ups are necessary to achieve your desired level of whiteness.
The Difference Between Over-the-Counterand In-Office Whitening
Over-the-counter products like whitening kits or strips may remove certain types of surface stains but it’s essential to know that they provide only minimal results when it comes to actually brightening your smile.
These at-home whitening solutions involve the application of a bleaching agent to the teeth using trays or strips. The bleaching agents typically found in over-the-counter whitening kits are peroxide-based. However, with these products, you have little to no control over how much bleaching agent is applied to the teeth. You must also carefully follow instructions to avoid irritating your gums or other uncomfortable side effects.
In-office whitening treatments are much more convenient and effective than over-the-counter products as they provide excellent results in as little as 60 minutes. In addition, these treatments are performed under the supervision of a dentist who can control how much whitening agent is applied and how long the treatment takes.
This ensures that any risks are minimized, and the treatment is as quick as possible while producing excellent results. In addition, the results of professional whitening treatments last longer than those offered by over-the-counter products.
Our professional whitening solutions also include at-home whitening kits that are more effective than over-the-counter products. This is because our kits contain custom-made bleaching trays that perfectly fit your teeth to ensure the whitening solution is distributed evenly and high-quality bleaching gels that ensure the best possible results.
The Advantages of Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening improves the appearance of your smile by brightening your teeth and removing stains and signs of discoloration caused by drinking coffee or wine, using tobacco products, or age. Brightening the color of the teeth improves the overall appearance of your smile and improves your self-confidence and quality of life.
If you are feeling self-conscious about your smile due to yellow or stained teeth, a whitening treatment can help restore your confidence and happiness. Even one session can make a massive difference in the appearance of your teeth.
