How to Whiten Teeth
Teeth Whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure in the world. However, according to Ocean Front Dental, you may want to skip those over the counter teeth whitening products from your local pharmacy, as you will never see the same results as you would with professional whitening.
Teeth Whitening Products
Over the counter strips, polishes, gels, pastes, and even toothbrushes are just a few of the ways that you can whiten your teeth without a dental appointment, and although this may seem like natural teeth whitening, it is far from it.
Over the counter products, if used too often or too much can cause problems including tooth sensitivity, chalky or even see through teeth. Professional teeth whitening from Ocean Front Dental is monitored so that you won’t overdo it.
Professional Teeth Whitening
There are two types of professional tooth whitening products available. Take home and in-office whitening:
Take Home Teeth Whitening
The take-home system from Ocean Front Dental takes about two weeks and can give you amazing results giving you a smile that is two to eight shades lighter.
Dr. Seddon, General Dentist, will make an impression or mold of your teeth to create custom-made teeth whitening trays that you will use at night or for a couple of hours each day depending on your custom made prescription. He will also give you a teeth whitening gel that you will use with the custom-made trays. In just two weeks you can brighten your smile.
Zoom Tooth Whitening
In office, whitening is a great way to give you immediate results, chair side. During the Zoom whitening treatment, which takes about 45 minutes to complete, Dr. Seddon, General Dentist, will apply a gel to your teeth that is activated by a laser or light. This process allows the oxygen to penetrate into your teeth giving you a whiter, brighter smile in a single dental appointment. Zoom Teeth Whitening can lighten your teeth up to ten shades. Come watch a movie and whiten your teeth all in one go.
Teeth Whitening Candidacy
People who have healthy teeth and gums are perfect candidates for teeth whitening. However, if you have older dental restorations that are stained or interior staining, professional teeth whitening will not give you the best results.
Candidates: Anyone who has stains from smoking, drinking red wine, etc. can have their teeth made 2-8 shades lighter.
