What’s the deal with whitening?

There are a great many reasons that your teeth have become discolored and unattractive. Thankfully, there are plenty of whitening solutions for you. Today we’re going to be talking about whitening for your teeth, how it works, and what you need to watch out for. Are you ready to learn more? Well, let’s get started.

Whitening is a wonderfully easy process.

Over the counter whitening solutions can often take a very long time to achieve results. It can take weeks or even months to make your smile bright again. When you work with professionals, you can expect professional results. Whether you choose whitening or bleaching, the process is simple.

Whitening Vs. Bleaching

The whitening process is often performed by using a high density light. Bleaching, on the other hand, uses a solution that involves hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. The real difference between procedures is this: bleaching can create whiteness that goes beyond what occurs naturally. Whitening is a restoration and nothing more. Which process is right for you? Well, that depends on what you want. It should be noted that bleaching can often lead to sensitivity in your teeth. Sometimes these processes are combined to create the most effective solution for your discolored teeth.

Whitening Aftercare

Once you get home from your whitening appointment, there are some things you should do to keep your smile looking it’s best.

  1. Avoid food and drinks that stain like red wine, coffee, etc.
  2. Brush diligently twice a day.
  3. Use sensitive toothpaste as necessary.
  4. Enjoy your new smile!

Why whitening?

If your teeth are looking yellow or dulled, then you may find yourself smiling less out of embarrassment. If you want to restore your smile to its brightest, then you may find whitening helpful. Smiling shouldn’t be something to worry about. It should come easily and often.
