Teeth Whitening in Denver CO
Our teeth naturally become dull and grey as we grow older in years. Though yellow teeth may be a side effect of aging, you don’t have to live with it. If your teeth are less bright than you would like, you can consider whitening your teeth with professional help. At Atlantic Dental in Denver, we offer various teeth whitening options to restore the aesthetics of your smile.
What Is Professional Teeth Whitening?
Tooth whitening at our office is a safe procedure that produces instant results. It offers a perfect way to eliminate stains caused by eating color-staining foods and restores the whiteness of teeth.
However, before you undergo teeth whitening, your teeth and gums must be healthy, with no tooth decay or gum infections. Otherwise, the bleaching solution may irritate your teeth and gums. Teeth whitening is not recommended for patients having dental restorations on their front teeth. The bleaching solution will not work on dental crowns, caps, and fillings.
We will first carefully clean the teeth and cover up the gums to protect them for the procedure. A hydrogen peroxide gel will be smeared at a concentration of anywhere from fifteen to thirty-five percent. This gel will be left on for anywhere between twenty to thirty minutes. If necessary, we will reapply the bleaching solution. A laser curing light is employed to activate the solution. At the end of the process, your teeth should be at least eight times whiter and brighter.
Teeth Whitening at Home
This option whitens your teeth in the convenience of your own home. We will create custom-made trays for our home whitening services to comfortably fit your teeth. These trays will hold a bleaching solution that is more effective than the store products. This personalized process has several benefits, including the custom fit keeping the bleaching solution in contact with your teeth to deliver the wanted effects. The trays also keep saliva from mixing with the bleaching agent and reducing its productivity. And most importantly, they prevent irritation by keeping the bleaching solution away from your gums.
Many people feel that getting their teeth whitened at home is the most effective way to get a bright white smile. Home whitening also allows our patients to enjoy the flexibility of whitening as per their convenience without adjusting their schedules. We will still be involved in monitoring the progress of your whitening treatment to make sure it is safe and effective.
