Benefits of Teeth Whitening
There are many benefits of teeth whitening, with the most obvious being that it improves appearance dramatically. You don’t want discolored, yellow teeth. You want a bright, white smile that you can be proud of and show off. On a related note, teeth whitening has been known to boost self-confidence. While you may have been more self-conscious about your appearance with discolored teeth, you no longer have to worry and can smile with confidence. For in-office whitening treatment, our dentists will likely photograph your teeth first, which will help to monitor the progress of the treatment. The dentist will clean your teeth to remove bacteria, food, and other substances that accumulate on your teeth and cause the staining. Then, the teeth whitening procedure begins. The procedure typically takes 30 to 90 minutes and can require up to three appointments. The dentist will apply a substance that covers and protects the gums, apply the teeth whitening agent, which is often activated by a laser light. The result is a bright, white smile free of stains.
