Should I Consider Teeth Whitening?
Are you a candidate for whitening? Whitening can increase sensitivity if you have sensitivity or have active decay. Dark stains and colours from decay, darker fillings and crowns, enamel deformations will not change colour. Book a consultation with your dentist to see if you are a candidate.
The Zoom teeth whitening is fairly simple. The dentist records the current shade of your teeth. Then they polish your teeth removing plaque. The dentist applies a solution to the surface of your teeth to whiten them. This solution includes hydrogen peroxide or carbide peroxide. Then a light is used to accelerate the peroxide. This usually lasts for 15 to 60 minutes.
Take home whitening trays involves custom trays made from impressions of your teeth. Whitening trays hold whitening gel in contact with the tooth but minimize contact with the remaining oral tissue. These trays are usually worn for 1 hour for 14 days. Take home whitening trays are generally less sensitive than Zoom whitening.
Teeth whitening is one of the most affordable ways to give yourself a better smile. This procedure can happen in the dentist office, or you can purchase a teeth whitening kit from your dentist and use it at home. You can purchase over the counter items to whiten your teeth. This can include whitening strips.
Teeth whitening can help improve your self confidence. This process will make your teeth will look sparkly and bright. When your teeth are whiter and brighter, it can indicate that you take care of yourself and your teeth. This process can improve your appearance. Over time, your teeth get stained from drinks and food. Whitening your teeth can make the damage time has caused disappear.
When your teeth are whiter, they can reduce the way your wrinkles look. Instead of people noticing your wrinkles, they will notice the sparkles in your teeth. It quickly draws the attention of other people away from any imperfections on your face. Teeth whitening is a great way to improve your appearance at an affordable price. The price is variable depending on which method you choose.
