Whiter teeth can be achieved rather easily, whether in our dental office or with take-home teeth whitening kits. At Blossom Smiles Dental, we can help you pick the option that safely and sufficiently suits your needs.
Candidates for Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is considered safe, but we strongly discourage patients who have not yet reached adulthood. Most children and teenagers will not require this type of procedure anyway, as long as they have been regularly caring for their teeth with twice-daily brushing, drinking plenty of water, and avoiding dark and sugary drinks like cola and coffee. While these tips will help keep adults’ teeth whiter, as well, teeth can naturally yellow over time.
The Whitening Procedure
At Blossom Smiles Dental, we are pleased to help patients achieve a brighter, white smile. Contact us for a consultation or to learn more about teeth whitening treatment. If you choose this option, our dentist will apply the peroxide solution to your teeth, which will then work to oxidize the enamel. Scientifically, this causes less light to reflect off of them and appear whiter. Patients who undergo teeth whitening in our office will usually only need one visit. To whiten your teeth at home, we will provide several trays.
What to Expect
Teeth whitening is not painful or uncomfortable for most patients but may cause slight irritations for your gums. By entrusting our team at Blossom Smiles Dental, you can feel more confident in the procedure and less concerned about choosing store-bought options or even following the instructions required with at-home trays. If you do prefer to do it yourself, however, you will receive custom-fit trays that sit snugly and comfortably in your teeth and mouth.
Although teeth whitening is an effective way to remove stains on your enamel, some patients have particularly stubborn stains. In these cases, our Burlington dentist can offer alternative options such as veneers. Please feel free to contact us for a consultation, and we will be happy to answer any questions you might have about whitening your teeth to achieve a brighter smile.
