Great Teeth Whitening Methods at Honey Grove Family Dentistry

Great Teeth Whitening Methods

Teeth whitening procedures have become increasingly popular during the last years. As daily consumption of coffee, wine, and other products that stain teeth have risen, so has the need to find procedures that work effectively to bring back a beautiful white smile.

In this article, we will be looking at distinct teeth whitening procedures, which have proven highly effective, both in terms of maintaining teeth health and delivering that gorgeous white smile that you want.

Opalescence

This is another teeth whitening kit that people have the luxury of bringing home to apply on their teeth. Opalescence is recommended by our dentist and it comes with a teeth whitening gel that brightens your smile. Opalescence also consists of custom-made trays that your dentist specifically makes for you. Being treated in this way suggests that there are two types of stains on teeth. While the superficial ones might be cleaned by brushing your teeth, other stains may prove more stubborn. Only a whitening gel such as Opalescence can get to the deep insides of your teeth's roots and remove these stains.

Take-home trays

Take-home whitening trays are a type of teeth whitening procedure that you can perform at the comfort of your home. This is an easy and cost-effective tooth whitening treatment that can be easily obtained. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to see the results at home. Although they can be a convenient option, obtaining great results can take longer than other treatments and they don’t always work well for deep stains. These trays are custom made to go over your teeth and whiten your teeth through a special gel that is found 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 period that they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth whitening needs.

Zoom!

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 accelerate the bleaching process – to activate the 25 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. 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.

Important: While the teeth whitening procedures mentioned in this article certainly work and have been proven to be effective, they are meant to accompany a good oral hygiene regime. It is very important to always maintain proper oral hygiene. This not only helps you get naturally whiter teeth over time, but it also maintains the results of your teeth whitening treatment and prevents stains from developing or darkening.
