What You Need to Know about Whitening Your Teeth

Posted .

Are you interested in achieving that Hollywood-style smile? We can help you do so through professional whitening processes. Most whitening is completed through the use of dental bleach. Dental bleach contains compounds that eliminate concentrated stains, so it’s good for brightening teeth.

During our in-office whitening treatments, Dr. Anthony Shaia cautiously applies a prescription-strength bleach gel to patients’ pearly whites before sealing the gel with a special light; this procedure is quick enough to be completed in one appointment. There are also home whitening services made possible through the use of dental trays; this treatment regularly takes a few weeks to finish.

A few patients report slight sensitivity after receiving teeth whitening. If you sense any sensitivity after whitening, don’t worry: this is not out of the ordinary. Your chompers may need some time to recover from the bleaching, so think about using a sensitivity toothpaste while you wait. If you are using whitening trays and noting intense sensitivity, please stop the treatment and contact us.

Keeping your chompers white can be complicated, but you can count on brushing two times daily and flossing once per day to help you out. You can also avoid chompers-staining foods, brush with whitening toothpaste and come into our office for professional cleanings regularly.
