Thinking of whitening your teeth? It's an exciting idea isn't it?
Teeth whitening has boomed in popularity over the last few years and it's important to know what your options are and how to make a good investment.
Our whitening solutions are very popular and we'll love to help you make your smile light up the room!
There are several options when it comes to whitening your teeth. You can get in-office bleaching. At-home bleaching. Or simply whitening toothpastes.
We at Elwood Dental offer Zoom in-office bleaching system. Treatment is done in a one-hour appointment where a bleaching agent is applied to your teeth and a special light is applied which accelerates the process. Your gums will also be protected from the bleaching agent.
Home bleaching kits have peroxide-based gels and a tray for your teeth to sit in once or twice a day. The overall treatment takes longer due to the lower concentrations of bleach, but take-home kits may also help ensure your teeth stay whiter longer.
Keep In Mind
If you're thinking about getting your teeth whitened it's important to know that not every whitening case is the same. Your result may vary significantly. Differences in structure of teeth enamel and their reflective properties can greatly affect whitening outcomes.
Some patients may also experience mild sensitivity to cold after a whitening visit.
There are other considerations which your dentist can go through with you during your consultation appointment.
