What Is Professional Teeth Whitening Treatment?
Professional teeth whitening is a process where a dentist uses a high-intensity light source to remove stains from the surface of the teeth. The process takes one office visit and requires no anesthesia. After the treatment, patients achieve a brighter smile. The process removes stains and discoloration from the teeth. This cosmetic procedure aims to restore the natural color of the teeth.
How Teeth Whitening Works
There are two ways your Atlanta Smile’s dentist can whiten your smile:
- Zoom!™ Teeth Whitening: An in-office teeth whitening procedure takes approximately one and a half hours, leading to unbelievable results.
- Custom Tray Teeth Whitening: An ongoing teeth whitening process where patients use custom trays at home. The trays are made using custom impressions (molds) created in-house by our team of dental professionals.
Many of our patients use a combination of both treatments to achieve optimal results. The Zoom!™ Whitening method will give you instant gratification, while the trays are used to maintain your enhanced appearance over time.
What Causes Teeth Discoloration?
The brightness of your teeth fades because of genetics, things you consume regularly, certain illnesses, or even your lifestyle choices.
- Tobacco: Smoking is a common contributor to tooth staining. Tobacco products contain chemicals called tannins that darken the teeth’s enamel layer, making them appear yellowish-brown.
- Foods and Beverages: Other causes include consuming certain foods or beverages, like coffee, tea, red wine, cola drinks, chocolate, and citrus fruits.
- Medications: Certain medications, like aspirin, antibiotics, birth control pills, and other drugs, also lead to teeth discoloration.
- Aging: The normal aging process contributes to tooth discoloration. As we age, collagen fibers break down and lose elasticity, causing the gums to recede. When this happens, food particles accumulate between the teeth and under the gum line. Then, bacteria begin to grow there, resulting in plaque buildup. Plaque contains pigments that turn into stains when exposed to oxygen. In addition, minerals found in saliva combine with calcium deposits to form tartar. Tartar has an acidic pH level, so it attracts more plaque than healthy enamel does.
Regardless of the cause, many patients lose confidence in their smiles when teeth become stained or discolored. Teeth whitening gives patients a way to restore the desired color of the teeth and create a beautiful smile. Reverse the effects with a cosmetic dental treatment in our Atlanta office.
Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening?
Many companies are profiting from tooth whitening products; however, they don’t always prioritize customer well-being. Patients have the option to whiten teeth at home using one of many brands of over-the-counter teeth whitening products.
However, there are risks associated with these products. They contain chemicals that can cause damage to enamel if misused. In addition, they do not provide consistent results because each person has different levels of staining. Some individuals even find them ineffective. Often misinformation and false promises lead to unsatisfied customers.
At Atlanta Smiles, we eliminate these risks by closely monitoring the process and using safe and effective whitening procedures. Our highly trained staff provides personalized care and attention throughout every step of the teeth whitening process. We also offer customized solutions based on individual needs. We don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach.
The best and safest way to achieve a whiter smile is through your dentist’s office with certified professionals. You’ll receive care that works to make your smile look better without compromising your oral health.
Yes! Professional teeth whitening is safe and effective. It removes surface stains without damaging the underlying structure of the teeth. Patients who undergo teeth whitening experience no discomfort after treatment. Most importantly, it improves oral health by reducing bacterial growth.
If you have issues like cavities, our dental team can develop a treatment plan to repair your teeth before moving forward with whitening.
It depends on several variables, including the amount of stain removed, the intensity of the bleach solution, and whether the patient received other treatments before the whitening session. Typically, Zoom!™ Teeth Whitening lasts between one and two years.
For patients using only custom trays, the process to whiten the teeth takes longer. Once the teeth achieve the desired whiteness, the results last around one year. Your dentist may advise continued use with the trays to maintain the desired color.
Practicing good oral health habits helps preserve tooth whiteness. Brush, floss, and rinse with mouthwash daily to remove bacteria and food from teeth. Also, schedule regular dental cleanings to remove plaque. Finally, avoid foods or behaviors that stain teeth, like tobacco, coffee, and red wine.
