Queen Anne Family Dental can answer your questions about teeth whitening.
What Is Teeth Whitening?
In most cases, your teeth pop out of your gums pristine and glistening white. However, over time, your teeth become less shiny and pretty. They get stained by things you eat and drink, as well as tobacco use. When you get your teeth whitened, we remove stains on your teeth by cleaning and bleaching your tooth’s surface.
There are several different ways we can whiten your teeth. Which product is best for you depends on how long you have to whiten your teeth and how much whitening is needed. If you have several months to get ready before you need whitened teeth, and you only need to whiten your teeth a few shades, you may only need whitening toothpaste and mouthwash. These products can whiten your teeth gradually over time. You should be able to whiten your teeth a few shades in that time.
What if you have a shorter period of time to whiten your teeth, or you need your teeth whitened several shades? Whitening strips may be the answer. You use the strips each day, twice a day, for around half an hour. While the strips are a little difficult to manage, they do work, and they can whiten your teeth several shades in a couple of weeks.
However, if you need whitening as soon as possible, or you need to get your teeth considerably whiter, come on in to see us. We can significantly whiten your teeth in a few days, or all in one sitting. To get your teeth white in a few days, we can prepare whitening trays for you to use at home. These trays can whiten your teeth significantly. We can also whiten your teeth all at once, in a few minutes time. Lasers can be used to whiten your teeth. We can whiten your teeth with a solution and a laser beam. We can also polish your teeth and then whiten them - that may be all you need. We can also bleach your teeth with a bleaching solution to get at the toughest stains.
