How Does Professional Teeth Whitening Work?
Professional tooth whitening brightens your teeth safely and effectively. Professional whitening gives you results you can see immediately after treatment. Add in the follow-up take-home teeth whitening system, and you will have teeth that are whiter than you ever thought possible.
Professional teeth whitening is relatively straightforward. The product consists of a peroxide whitening gel; this breaks apart the stains that have set on the teeth. Oxygen hits the enamel and dentin of the teeth, and stains that have built up over the years are soon eliminated.
Your teeth can be noticeably whiter by many shades after just one teeth whitening treatment.
Is Professional Teeth Whitening Safe?
You might be wondering if teeth whitening is safe—and it is. Although it is true that over-the-counter teeth whitening kits can sometimes cause irritation and sensitivity, having your teeth whitened by a dental professional is safe and will help you achieve a better result, quicker.
How Long Does the Whitening Procedure Take?
When you come in for a whitening appointment, you can expect to be with us for two hours. The first thing we will do is deplaque and clean your teeth and prepare you for the treatment. After you are prepped for the bleaching process, you can sit back and relax during treatment. This takes about 45 minutes.
There is no pain associated with teeth whitening; however, some post-bleaching sensitivity is normal.
If you have concerns about the treatment or you know you have a strong gag reflex, please talk to us beforehand. We can let you know exactly what to expect.
We highly recommend that patients follow up with at-home bleaching after they undergo in-office whitening treatment for the best results.
How Long Do the Results Last?
It is difficult to predict just how long teeth whitening will last, but if you follow up your in-office treatment with at-home care, you can extend your whitening results. "Touch up" bleaching is quick and easy to maintain your white teeth. In addition, if you avoid those foods and drinks that may have stained your teeth in the first place, you can expect the results to last longer.
Dr. Chen and his team will give you thorough instructions to help ensure your results are as long-lasting as possible. They will also remind you to come in twice each year for cleanings and examinations!
