Do you want a whiter and brighter smile? You can do it in two ways: in-office teeth bleaching or at-home care. Let’s discuss it in detail.
What Is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth Whitening is a procedure used for whitening your stained, discolored teeth. It uses peroxide-based bleached agents that are applied to your teeth to make it white.
As discussed earlier, we offer two options to make your teeth white and smile beautiful.
- In-Office Teeth Whitening
The teeth whitening procedures performed by professionals are more effective. They use bleaching solutions that are sturdy, and use heat, light, or a combination of the two to intensify and speed up the whitening processes.
It takes almost 30 to 60 minutes to make your teeth three to eight shades brighter.
At-home teeth bleaching offers multiple options to the patients:
1. Teeth Whitening Strips and Gels
These gels are applied directly to the mouth with a brush or thin strips once or twice a day for 10-14 days.
2. Tray-Based Tooth Bleaching System
A tray is filled with peroxide-based bleaching gel or pastes in this teeth whitening process. It is placed on the teeth for about one to two hours a day.
3. Teeth Whitening Toothpastes
Although traditional pastes can help remove stains from the teeth, toothpaste contains chemicals or polishing agents that effortlessly eliminate all the stains from the teeth.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening provides the following benefits:
- It will boost your self-esteem by improving the appearance of your smile.
- It makes your mouth sturdier and healthier than ever.
- It instantly makes your teeth whiter and brighter.
- It is a 100% safe process for your teeth.
- It will dramatically benefit your oral hygiene.
- It is a very cost-effective procedure.
Aftercare Tips for Teeth Whitening
After getting your teeth whitened by a professional, you need to avoid consuming colored or acidic foods. Your dentist may also recommend you avoid consuming either too hot or cold meals.
However, you can eat specific foods like crunchy fruits or vegetables as it helps to clean your teeth naturally.
