Teeth Whitening is Easy
What is excellent about tooth whitening is that it is a non-invasive treatment that can be done quickly and efficiently at Burch Dental.
Tooth whitening is not only completed for cosmetic reasons. You may choose to have teeth whitening to reduce the look of discoloration related to medication. Some prescriptions can discolor teeth if it was prescribed at a young age when the adult teeth were still developing. Another reason you may pursue teeth whitening is it reduces the look of fluorosis, which is when you had too much fluoride treatment as their teeth are developing.
The Life Expectancy of Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is not a permanent solution. You may need to undergo regular tooth whitening sessions to maintain the look and results of your treatments. If you continue to engage in specific activities after having your teeth whitened, you are more likely to need additional whitening treatments, more often. Events that will increase the need for further teeth whitening treatments include smoking, drinking coffee or tea, colas, as well as red wine. If you eat highly concentrated citrus or heavily colored foods, you may also see the need to whiten more often.
The Teeth Whitening Procedure
Working with Burch Dental to whiten your teeth is the ideal approach. While retail teeth whitening solutions do provide improvements, having our team perform your teeth whitening treatment is the most efficient way to achieve the results you want. If having teeth whitened at home is essential to you, we can offer an at-home component or kit that can be purchased and used under our supervision.
Professional teeth whitening treatments often incorporate gels that must be mixed in the office to help accelerate the whitening treatment and more efficiently provide the best results possible if you have significant levels of discoloration. This type of treatment is not available for at-home use, and products on the market are not comparable to what we can provide concerning tooth whitening treatment and the concentrations.
When working with Burch Dental to have teeth whitened, dental impressions will be taken. These molds will be used to create customized trays that will be used during the teeth whitening process. Using personalized trays allows for the best possible results; using over-the-counter tooth whitening systems have generic, one-size-fits-all whitening trays, which leaves room for error and less impressive results.
For a porcelain crown, it may be desirable to replace it if the newly whitened teeth no longer match the crown. Everything that needs to be considered will be discussed before any treatment begins. It is important that you have all the information we need to make informed decisions about your oral health. Do not make the mistake of thinking tooth whitening is just a cosmetic procedure; it can improve oral health just like other dental procedures.
Following your teeth whitening treatment at Burch Dental, you might experience tooth sensitivity. We will recommend that you reduce your intake of coffee, tea, red wine, and citrus, tomatoes, and berries for a few days while the tooth whitening sets in. It is advisable to reduce the consumption of these beverages and foods anyway because they wear away the enamel, which can reduce the results of the tooth whitening treatment and increase the need for additional treatments more frequently.
The sensitivity you may experience will also depend on how much treatment is needed to achieve the desired level of whiteness. This should not happen if we have you prepare ahead of time with other professionally prescribed adjuncts. If the problem persists, be sure to tell us, but using over-the-counter tooth-sensitivity toothpaste, Fluoride varnish, or a calcium-phosphate gel can also help to alleviate the discomfort brought on by sensitivity.
Proper brushing and flossing must always be continued, and regular dental visits are essential to maintain the success of the tooth whitening procedure and perform touch-ups, as necessary. If you have questions about whether teeth whitening is for you, contact Burch Dental for a consultation. Teeth whitening is quick and easy and provides you with an immediate boost in your self-esteem.
