Teeth whitening is becoming the most common esthetic dental procedure. Teeth naturally come in different shades and items we consume can stain or change the color of our teeth. Great oral hygiene habits including brushing and flossing, as well as professional care, can help to remove surface stains on your teeth. If additional teeth whitening is desired, there are teeth whitening systems that can be used. At Refresh Dental, we provide teeth whitening services to help you create a whiter smile.
This process lightens the color of your teeth using teeth whitening or bleaching solutions. Over-the-counter solutions are often not as effective as professional teeth whitening because the concentration of bleaching solution is lower than can be administered by a dental professional. A dental professional will also review if teeth whitening is a good option for your teeth and any limitations or contraindications to the procedure.
Discoloration and staining can be caused by a number of factors including: poor dental hygiene, regular consumption of dark beverages and food (such as wine or coffee) and smoking. Enamel also often darkens with age. Sometimes discoloration can be a symptom of a deeper problem like tooth decay or nerve issues so it is important to make sure you have a dental exam before whitening. Also, previous restorative work such as crowns or bridges will not change color with teeth whitening. Our general dentists will carefully examine your teeth and oral health to determine if teeth whitening is appropriate for you.
Refresh Dental offers two options for teeth whitening: at home custom whitening and in office ZOOM! whitening
At home custom teeth whitening:
ZOOM! Teeth Whitening:
With both systems, post instructions are reviewed. Tooth sensitivity during and after whitening is common but for most people it is a transient symptom.
Results from teeth whitening vary between patients, as does the length of time the teeth maintain their shade. There are many ways to reduce stain including keeping the health clean with regular care, avoiding staining food and not smoking. We provide detailed instructions on long-term care so you can avoid stains as much as possible.
