While there are many different teeth whitening products out there, they all use the same basic principles of action. Teeth whitening products all contain peroxides, such as carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide.
What makes peroxides unique is their chemical composition. They contain very excited oxygen molecules. When these molecules contact the surface stains that attach to the pores of your enamel, they break the bonds that hold the stain onto your teeth.
In turn, this bleaches away the stain and restores the natural, white color of your enamel. It’s important to note, however, that this is only effective on extrinsic (surface) stains. Standard teeth whitening can’t be used to treat teeth that are discolored by intrinsic (internal) stains. An alternative treatment like a veneer or dental crown may be required to treat intrinsic stains.
In-office teeth whitening is a great option if you want fast results for a special occasion. Dr. Munira Sulaiman or Dr. Mandeep Singh will clean your mouth, then apply a protective coating to your gums. Next, they will apply a powerful whitening compound to your teeth, activate it with a UV light, and rinse it away.
This process may be repeated several times, depending on your current level of staining and your desired level of whiteness. In just a single appointment, you’ll be able to whiten your teeth by 5 shades or more.
Take-home whitening provides more gradual, subtle results compared to in-office whitening. The end result will be the same, but take-home kits whiten your teeth over a period of several weeks, rather than just a single appointment.
You’ll work with Dr. Munira Sulaiman or Dr. Mandeep Singh to get a set of custom-built whitening trays that will fit your teeth perfectly. You’ll also be given whitening compound and instructions on how to whiten your teeth at home. Usually, you’ll whiten your teeth for about an hour per day for 2-3 weeks.
Teeth whitening has a number of great benefits. Firstly and most importantly, it helps restore your self-confidence and self-esteem. Yellowed or stained teeth may make you feel self-conscious when smiling, laughing, or even eating around others. In addition, teeth whitening can remove stains and yellowing that make you look older, providing you with a more youthful appearance.
Teeth whitening is also very affordable, fast, and non-invasive. If you’re interested in cosmetic dentistry, but you’re on a budget or you’re not sure where to start, teeth whitening from Smile Society General Dentistry is a great option.
