Would you love a whiter smile? Essential teeth whitening facts.
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that helps to brighten the appearance of teeth by removing surface stains. A treatment will lift your smile for quite some time before you need to think about re-whitening, depending on your lifestyle habits. The whitening products prescribed by dentists contain peroxide, either as hydrogen peroxide which is used in chairside whitening treatments, or carbamide peroxide which is commonly prescribed for use at home.
Is It Safe?
A professional teeth whitening treatment is very safe because your teeth and gums are examined beforehand, and our dentist can also advise you about the results which can be realistically achieved. Every teeth whitening treatment is custom-designed, so if you have especially sensitive teeth, then we can adjust the procedure to ensure you feel more comfortable.
In-Chair Versus Take-Home Whitening Kits
Mountain Top Dental offers in-chair laser whitening and custom home whitening kits, and both are equally as effective. With an in-chair laser whitening treatment, the colour of your teeth is lifted by several shades in just a single visit. It is the perfect treatment if you are in a hurry to see your new smile. Alternatively, a custom home-whitening kit contains whitening trays fabricated to fit precisely over your teeth. You simply fill the trays and wear them for a few hours or overnight. It takes approximately two weeks to complete treatment. Provided your teeth remain in the same positions, you can re-use the trays when you need to top up the results.
