Teeth Whitening Can Restore Your Smile And Confidence
Tooth stains and yellowing are a fact of life. As we age, our teeth lose their sparkle and become dull. This is especially true if you use tobacco products, or if you regularly consume beverages like coffee, tea or wine.
Stained teeth can make you feel uncomfortable about your smile. If you have been avoiding smiling and laughing because you’re embarrassed about tooth discoloration, teeth whitening from Dr. Hamrick at Heritage Dentistry can help!
Get Your Bright Smile Back with Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is a simple, non-invasive, and fast process. All teeth whitening products use the same basic active ingredients, called peroxide. Both carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide may be used to whiten your teeth.
Peroxides contain special molecules powerful enough to break up the bonds that hold stains on tooth enamel. This results in the “bleaching” of the tooth, and a whiter, more brilliant smile. Some of the benefits of this process include:
- Your smile will become brighter and more brilliant
- Stains from aging, tobacco use and other causes will be reversed
- You’ll look younger and be more confident
- The entire process is non-invasive and takes less than an hour, in most cases
During an in-office whitening, Dr. Hamrick will clean and prepare your teeth for treatment, and use a special solution to paint your gums and protect them from the highly-concentrated peroxide compounds.
Then, a gel or paste-based whitening agent is applied to the teeth and left in place for several minutes. Dr. Hamrick will use a UV light to excite the oxygen molecules contained in the peroxides, further increasing their power and speeding up the whitening process. The result is a brilliant and beautiful smile that’s anywhere from 5-10 shades whiter.
Take-home teeth whitening consists of custom, professional-grade trays that are built for you by Dr. Hamrick. You’ll be provided with several sets of these trays, and given instructions on how to wear them in the comfort of your own home.
Take-home whitening is typically a better choice for patients who have had tooth sensitivity issues in the past. Since the results of take-home whitening are more gradual than in-office whitening, the whitening often seems more subtle and natural. Nobody has to know that you’re having your teeth whitened!
