Teeth whitening offers a fast, non-invasive method to improve your smile. It is a process that enhances the natural color of your teeth beyond their natural shade. Almost everyone who chooses a teeth whitening solution experiences a whiter, brighter smile. There are several teeth whitening techniques offered at our dental office that our dentist could recommend to you during your first visit.
Our dentist at Midtown Dental Associates.recommends various teeth whitening products and teeth whitening kits. Most of the teeth whitening kits use carbamide peroxide to whiten teeth. Recommendations are given depending on the current state of your teeth.
Take Home Trays
Take-home whitening trays are an easy and cost-effective type of teeth whitening procedure that you can perform in the comfort of your home. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to see the results at home. They are a convenient option, but obtaining great results can take a little longer than in-office treatments. These trays are custom made to go over your teeth and whiten your teeth through a special gel that is placed on the inside of the trays.
These 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.
How Take-home Whitening Trays Work
Custom whitening trays are made of a clear plastic that feels comfortable when inserted. A small amount of a specialized gel is inserted in each tray, giving them their whitening properties. The gel consists of a hydrogen peroxide solution that actively whitens the enamel of the teeth.
After they have been used and are taken off, they need to be cleaned with a toothbrush and rinsed. This makes them ready to be used again.
Zoom is a bleaching process widely used to lighten discoloration of enamel and dentin. Tooth discoloration may result from drinking coffee, tea, cola and red wine; or from smoking. The aging process also can stain and darken your teeth. The Zoom In-Office Tooth Whitening procedure uses the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp to activate the 25 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin to bleach the stained substances, leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged.Read more about Zoom!
