A great video explaining teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening is an extremely popular dental treatment and there are many over-the-counter products available. So why choose a professional teeth bleaching treatment? You will find the best teeth whitening treatment is only available at a dental office. This is because your local dentist is able to use professional strength bleaching gels. These professional teeth whitening products are highly effective yet very safe. In contrast, over-the-counter products may lack the strength to significantly change the color of your teeth. This can lead to people overusing them and ultimately damaging their teeth.
Why Do Teeth Stain?
Teeth can become stained due to lifestyle factors such as smoking or eating a lot of highly colored foods. Your tooth color is also influenced by genetics. It’s perfectly normal for teeth to become darker with age due to thinning tooth enamel. When we are young, teeth are covered by quite a thick layer of tooth enamel. This is a whitish opaque color and it masks the natural darker shade of the tooth which is underneath in the dentin. Tooth dentin makes up the main body of the tooth. Over time tooth enamel is gradually eroded and becomes thinner, allowing more of the natural tooth color to shine through. This is why whiter teeth are often associated with youthfulness.
Who Can Have Teeth Whitening Treatments?
This cosmetic dentistry procedure is best for people who have healthy and strong teeth, but it isn’t suitable for everybody. It shouldn’t be carried out on anyone who has problems with gum disease or untreated tooth decay. Using bleaching products on an unhealthy mouth could be uncomfortable at best and painful at worst. It may even worsen existing dental problems. This is why it’s always important to find a dentist to examine your teeth and gums before tooth whitening. You should book a checkup even if you ultimately choose to opt for over-the-counter whitening products.

Everybody’s Teeth Whiten Slightly Differently
During your checkup you will also learn the kind of results teeth whitening could provide for you. For example, bleaching teeth will not change the color of any existing restorations like crowns, bridges or veneers. Teeth bleaching can only change the surface color of a tooth and cannot address any internal stains. A tooth may become internally stained due to an old root canal treatment, tetracycline use or exposure to excess fluoride during childhood. Teeth that internally stained can sometimes be internally bleached or they may need to be covered up completely with veneers or crowns.

Will Bleaching Make My Teeth Ultra-White?
Natural tooth colors can range from yellow to gray. Generally, people with yellowish tones in their teeth will respond best to tooth whitening. Our best dentist can give you a realistic idea of how white you can safely go. Ideally, teeth whitening should lighten your teeth so they are no whiter than the whites of your eyes as this will look natural and healthy. If you wish your teeth to be ultra-white, you may need to opt for a different treatment like multiple porcelain veneers to cover up all your front teeth. Porcelain veneers can significantly whiten the appearance of your teeth using what are called Hollywood shades. These shades will definitely give you the smile of a movie star, but it’s best to choose a color that will compliment your skin tone, facial features and personality.

Treatments to Professionally Whiten Your Teeth
There are two different professional dental treatments to safely whiten your teeth. Our dentist can discuss both of them with you in greater detail, so you can choose the procedure that best suits your needs. One way is to whiten in our dental office and it will only take an hour or so. This procedure is extremely popular due to the quick results provided and is ideal if you want a whiter smile right now. Another way is to whiten more slowly at home using our fully customized tooth whitening kits. Some people may choose to use a combination of both treatments to get the very best results.
Teeth Whitening in Our Dental Office
During a teeth whitening treatment in our dental office, your gums and lips will be protected. Next, whitening gel is painted onto your teeth. This gel gently penetrates the tooth surface, lifting deep-seated stains as it whitens. We may choose to use a special light that will activate the gel, enabling it to penetrate your teeth a bit more quickly. The gel is wiped off and replaced several times during treatment. At the end of this single appointment your teeth should look significantly whiter. Once treatment is completed then it’s best to avoid all colored foods for the first two or three days until your teeth settle down. Don’t worry, as we can give you lots of advice at the time and this will help prolong the results of tooth whitening.
Teeth Whitening Using a Customized Home Whitening Kit
With a fully customized home whitening kit, you can whiten in the comfort of your own home. Your kit will contain custom-made whitening trays that will fit tightly yet comfortably over your teeth. This will prevent any whitening gel from leaking out during treatment, keeping it exactly where it is needed to bleach your teeth. Our dentist will prescribe the best strength of whitening gel for your needs. The strength can be adjusted to ensure whitening is safe and comfortable.
This treatment can be very helpful for anyone with sensitive teeth and who will find it more comfortable to whiten slowly. All you have to do is to wear the whitening trays for a few hours each day or you can leave them in overnight. It takes around two weeks to complete treatment, but you should begin to see a difference within a few days. The nice thing about using one of these custom-made kits is that you can always reuse the whitening trays at a later date. We can supply more gel when you need to top up the results.
How Long Will the Results Last?
This all depends on your lifestyle habits. If you drink tea, coffee or red wine, or like lots of highly colored foods then your teeth will become stained more quickly. Good oral home care combined with regular checkups and dental cleanings will all keep your teeth looking whiter for longer. When the time comes, you can top up the results with another treatment at Avery’s Creek Family Dentistry.
