More about Professional Whitening
Professional teeth whitening is a way to improve the color of your teeth using hydrogen peroxide (a type of bleach). It is very effective and safe if carried out by a dentist or under the supervision of a dentist. Take-home teeth whitening kits consist of placing a whitening gel in a tray that has been custom-fitted for your mouth by a dentist. Some trays are worn for an hour, others through the night.
Benefits of Take-Home Whitening
Let's face it, over-the-counter teeth whitening kits are hard to use, messy, and deliver poor results. Take-home whitening kits, on the other hand, allow you to get professional results at your convenience. With take-home whitening treatments, it’s easier than ever for patients to discover noticeably whiter smiles in just two weeks. Take-home teeth whitening is not only effective, but it is also safe for your gums and teeth.
How to Maintain Your White Smile
After you have completed treatment, be sure to follow good oral hygiene practices. Floss your teeth once a day, brush twice daily, and rinse with mouthwash at least once a day. To maintain your pearly whites, you might also need a touch-up after one or two years, although if you use tobacco or drink lots of dark-colored beverages, you may need a touch-up more often.
Your Teeth Whitening Consultation
Rather than heading to the local cosmetic counter or mall in search of tooth whiteners, start with a dental consultation at our Sherman Oaks office! Only a dental practitioner can determine if teeth whitening is suitable for you. If you have healthy teeth and gums, you may be a good candidate for professional teeth whitening. However, if a patient has periodontal disease, dental cavities, or exposed roots, these issues need to be addressed before cosmetic treatment.
