If you have yellowed, darkened, or stained teeth, call Premier Dental Care today. Our professional staff offers teeth whitening treatment that improves the aesthetics and health of patients’ smiles.
There are a variety of factors that cause tooth discoloration such as age, smoking habits, staining foods and drinks, and certain medications. These effects may be reversed with the correct treatment. Teeth whitening is a safe procedure that doesn’t damage teeth or gums. Bleaching agents that are crafted with tooth sensitivity in mind are painless while providing long-lasting results.
Benefits of Whitening Teeth
Tooth whitening offers many benefits to patients. Tooth whitening treatment:
- Is long-lasting
- Improves tooth health
- Reverses effects of aging on teeth
- Brightens teeth
- Can help improve your confidence
Whitening your teeth not only improves the aesthetics of your smile but can also improve your oral health. Patients who receive tooth whitening treatment are more likely to visit the dentist regularly and take the necessary steps to properly care for their teeth.
Over-the-counter teeth whitening methods are often not as effective as professional teeth whitening treatment because the whitening gel used is not as concentrated. These whitening systems usually don’t give patients the results they are looking for.
Professional Teeth Whitening Treatment
Dr. Naguib offers in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments. Before choosing a treatment, he will review your budget and goals with you. He will also assess your teeth and gums to determine if you are a good candidate for treatment. This helps him choose which form of whitening treatment is the best option for your unique case.
In office whitening procedure is ideal for when you need a whiter smile fast. It takes about an hour at our office and makes your teeth up to eight shades whiter. The procedure is very simple. We will protect your gums then paint the bleaching agent onto your teeth. Then we will activate the whitening ingredient with a special light. At your checkups, Dr. Naguib will monitor the need for touch ups.
At home whitening is a more gradual process. We’ll take impressions of your teeth and make customized bleaching trays. We will give you a professional grade whitening gel to put in the trays. You wear them for a few hours each day and your teeth gradually whiten over a few days. Since they’re customized to your mouth, you have less of a risk of the bleaching agent causing sensitive teeth.
Teeth Whitening FAQs
How long do your teeth stay white after whitening?
After professional teeth whitening, most patients’ teeth remain white for anywhere from six months to 2 years. This may vary based on the patient’s diet and oral care routine. Results can last much longer if you regularly whiten your teeth at the dentist office.
How long after teeth whitening can I eat normally?
After teeth whitening treatment patients should avoid foods that have saturated colors for at least 24 hours. Additionally, we recommend avoiding coffee, wine, and soda for at least 72 hours. This will prevent staining on your newly whitened teeth.
How do I keep my teeth white after whitening?
In order to preserve the results of your whitening treatment, you should avoid eating or drinking any foods with potent coloring. It is also important for patients to brush and floss their teeth regularly. Using whitening toothpaste is another great way to preserve your whitened teeth.
How long after teeth whitening can I see results?
Patients can see the full effects of tooth whitening after the first 24 hours of treatment. Depending on the concentration of the whitening solution effects may appear faster, or take slightly longer in some cases.
Should I brush before or after teeth whitening?
We highly recommend that patients brush their teeth before having them whitened. This is to be sure that no plaque or bacteria is present on the surface of teeth before we apply the whitening solution.
What should you not do when whitening your teeth?
During, and after whitening teeth, patients should avoid drinking deeply colored foods and drinks. This includes drinking coffee, tea, wine, soda, juice, etc. Patients should also avoid foods such as ketchup, chocolate, and soy sauce as they are very likely to stain their teeth.
