Who doesn't like a white and bright smile? Certain foods and drinks, medications, diseases, poor dental hygiene, smoking, chewing tobacco, genetics, and environmental factors can cause tooth discoloration. However, this dental issue can be tackled with professional teeth whitening or bleaching.
You can get them through professional teeth whitening if you wish to have bright and white teeth. You can go through the bleaching process to make your teeth up to eight shades whiter.
Get Desirable Results with Professional Bleaching
Using a powerful whitening solution containing peroxide can help you get a bright and white smile. Some people prefer buying a whitening solution from a store. However, it is never very effective. Using it can only make the yellow of your teeth a few shades lighter.
We use two professional bleaching processes, namely in-office bleaching and custom whitening trays for home bleaching. The solution we use penetrates the enamel surface to eliminate deep stains. Only with professional bleaching at our dental clinic, you get white teeth to enhance your smile.
Are Home Dental Whitening Solutions Effective?
It depends on the results you want to achieve. If your teeth have just started turning dull, using a simple whitening solution bought from a store can help. But, if you have deep stains, visit us for professional teeth cleaning.
Also, there are always many things to consider before you try in-house teeth whitening, such as the time for which you let the solution sit on your teeth. If you do not give it time to work, you might not get the desired results. On the other hand, if you keep the whitening solution for a very long time or bleach your teeth multiple times within a short span, the enamel on your teeth will wear off permanently, causing sensitivity.
Furthermore, the solution needs to penetrate the enamel surface to show effect. It can happen with professional bleaching. In-home whitening solutions that penetrate below the enamel aren't easily available. We also create whitening trays to be worn at your home at our clinic. They are more comfortable to wear than store-bought trays and deliver good results.
What are Natural Teeth Bleaching Solutions?
Natural teeth bleaching solutions can damage your teeth. Most remedies, such as lemons, have acids to remove the stains that erode your teeth. High acid content can permanently damage the enamel, enhancing sensitivity. Hence, it would be best if you only trusted professional teeth bleaching.
