What is Professional Teeth Whitening?
Everyone wants a bright smile and there are quite a lot of different ways to whiten teeth. Often, the choices can be confusing, but it may help to know that there are basically only two categories of teeth whitening options to choose from: professional, in-office whitening or at-home products.
Did you know that Professional Teeth Whitening done at Vallejo Family Dentistry works much faster than whitening at home? That is because we have professional grade technology that will dramatically improve results all while we are ensuring your oral health.
Who does Professional Teeth Whitening work best for?
Unfortunately, whitening does not work on all teeth. Therefore, it’s important to check with Vallejo Family Dentistry to determine the right procedure for your teeth. Certain whiteners may not correct all types of staining and discoloration. For example, yellowed teeth typically bleach well while brown teeth may not respond as well and teeth with gray tones may not bleach at all.
In addition, whitening won’t work on dental appliances like caps, veneers, crowns, or fillings. It’s highly likely that bleaching your teeth will not be effective if the primary cause for discoloration is medication or trauma.
What’s involved in Professional Teeth Whitening?
The process for teeth whitening is fairly simple. Depending on what product you use and if you choose to whiten at home or professionally at the dentist, the steps vary.
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, in turn making your teeth brighter.
