If you are interested in a brilliant white smile start by speaking with one of our highly trained dentists. He or she can tell you whether whitening procedures would be effective for you. We often have exciting promotions to make this cosmetic treatment more affordable.
Is Whitening For You?
Whiteners may not correct all types of discoloration. For example, yellowish hued teeth will probably bleach well, brownish-colored teeth may bleach less well, and grayish-hued teeth may not bleach well at all.
If you have had bonding or tooth-colored fillings placed in your front teeth the whitener will not affect the color of these materials, and they will stand out in your newly whitened smile. You may want to investigate other options, like porcelain veneers or dental bonding.
If you are a candidate for whitening, Deccan Dental offers a few ways to whiten your smile:
This procedure is called chairside bleaching and usually requires only one office visit. The dentist will apply either a protective gel to your gums or a rubber shield to protect the oral soft tissues. A bleaching agent is then applied to the teeth, and a special light may be used.
Peroxide-containing whiteners actually bleach the tooth enamel. They typically come in a gel and are placed in a mouth tray. We will take impressions of your mouth to make customized whitening trays. Once the trays are ready, you will return to the office for a demonstration and instructions on use. There are potential side effects, such as increased sensitivity or gum irritation.
All toothpastes help remove surface stain through the action of mild abrasives. “Whitening” toothpastes in the ADA Seal of Acceptance program have special chemical or polishing agents that provide additional stain removal effectiveness. Unlike bleaches, these ADA Accepted products do not change the color of teeth because they can only remove stains on the surface.
