Things to Know About Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening treatments offer fast, non-invasive methods to enhance your smile. It is a process that restores the natural color of the teeth, or in many cases, just brightens the color of the teeth beyond its natural shade. Almost everyone who chooses for a teeth whitening solution sees reasonable to significant improvement in the glare and whiteness of their smile. There are many teeth whitening techniques offered at our dental office and over the counter.

Laser

Laser teeth whitening is administered in a dental office exclusively, and is the most expensive method for whitening. All forms of teeth whitening work by releasing oxygen ions from a tooth whitening gel, which gently lift stains from the teeth. The laser simply lifts the stains faster. Another advantage of the laser is that (depending on the type of laser used) it can more easily be used to bleach one tooth at a time. This is helpful when one tooth is more discolored than the surrounding teeth.

Take Home Trays

Take-home whitening trays are a type of teeth whitening procedure that you can perform at the comfort of your home. This is an easy and cost-effective teeth whitening treatment that can be easily obtained. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to see the results at home. Although they can be a convenient option, obtaining great results can take longer than other treatments and they don’t always work well for deep stains. These trays are custom made to go over your teeth and whiten your teeth through a special gel that is found on the inside of the trays.

Theses trays, once made for you, can then be taken home as a teeth whitening kit, along with the guidelines given by our dentist. The time that they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth whitening needs.

Lifetime Dentistry of Bradenton- Bradenton, FL can make sure that the teeth whitening procedure you are looking for is done with quality and care. For any further questions, please feel free to contact our office today at 941-254-7917.
