Teeth whitening is an innovative technique used to clear up stains and discolorations on your teeth. The process can significantly enhance your teeth and their appearance, giving you the smile you’ve always wanted. It’s easy to see why it’s one of the most preferred options in cosmetic dentistry.
With the use of a bleaching agent, the process of teeth whitening breaks up the concentrations of stains on your teeth, making them appear whiter and healthier looking. Teeth whitening is perfectly safe and doesn’t harm the enamel — the outer layer of your teeth.
Tooth stains occur on the enamel and can hamper your smile. Besides aging or wear and tear, the most common reason for tooth discoloration is stain-causing foods and beverages. These include:
There are other risk factors that increase your chances of developing stains or discoloration on your teeth as well, such as chewing or smoking tobacco, poor oral hygiene habits, and the use of certain medications.
Teeth whitening at the office of Vivian Rose Kunstmann, DDS, involves the use of a whitening gel applied to your teeth. The gel is comprised of a bleaching agent, the active ingredient, which is often hydrogen peroxide. Professional whitenings, as opposed to over-the-counter options, make use of gels with a very high concentration of hydrogen peroxide to achieve optimal whitening results.
The team uses Zoom!® whitening products, as well as a few other different whitening systems. The process takes anywhere from 30-60 minutes and whitens your smile by several shades in just one visit.
There are also take-home whitening kits to whiten your smile with gel-lined trays at home. If you opt for a take-home option, your dentist will provide detailed instructions on how to whiten your teeth at home.
Typically, whitening results should last at least one to two years, if not more. The key to maintaining whitening results is practicing excellent oral hygiene and avoiding stain-causing foods or habits, such as chewing or smoking tobacco.
