Information About Teeth Whitening
If you’re interested in brightening your smile, teeth whitening services may be just what you’re looking for. And at City Dental Centers, we offer both in-office whitening treatments as well as at-home options. Depending on if you choose to whiten at home or professionally at our office, the steps vary.
Also please note that whitening treatments do not work on all types of teeth. Therefore, it’s important to check with your dentist to determine the right whitening procedure for your teeth. Certain whiteners may not correct all types of staining and discoloration. In addition, whitening won’t work on dental appliances like caps, veneers, crowns, or fillings. Again, if you’re unsure, just ask.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
The main benefit of in-office professional teeth whitening is that the whitening occurs much faster than most at-home options. Furthermore, in-office whitening treatments will penetrate deeper below the surface of the tooth. As a result, your teeth stay whiter longer than other teeth whitening methods.
The results of in-office whitening treatments tend to be better because dentists use higher concentrations of bleaching gels. Furthermore, deeper penetration usually occurs because a cleaning to remove plaque and surface debris is a frequent first step in tooth whitening.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening products contain one of two tooth bleaches: hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These ingredients work to break stains into smaller pieces and reduce the concentration of color. As a result, your teeth appear brighter.
At City Dental Centers, we offer the BrightBar at-home dental whitening kit. And this convenient on-the-go teeth whitening system is something we fully stand by. Why? Because our own Dr. Sam created it himself!
