Everything You Need to Know About Teeth Whitening


Benefits of Professional Whitening Treatment

When time is essential, no other teeth whitening treatment produces such immediate results; fewer dental visits are required and less time is taken away from your daily routine.

The process of delivering chairside whitening treatments has been developed with optimum safety for the patient in mind. The teeth are isolated and the gel applied only to the tooth structure, avoiding soft tissue damage or discomfort for the patient.

The process has also developed into a more comfortable experience. Using a thick bleaching gel that won’t soak into the tooth’s enamel has helped to alleviate one of the most common complaints – tooth sensitivity. In addition to the enamel-friendly, thicker gel, modern treatments include the use of desensitizers, such as potassium nitrate, and fluoride.

Bleaching is not recommended in children under the age of 16, or for pregnant women. It is also not advised to bleach sensitive teeth, or for patients with receding gums, exposed roots, worn enamel, damaged restorations or peroxide allergies. As with all dental therapies, it’s best to seek out the advice of your dentist before committing to any form of whitening treatment.
