Are you familiar with the term Teeth Whitening? Let us dive deep into teeth whitening in this article. 

What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that can remove stains and discolouration from your teeth and give you a brighter, whiter smile.

However, it can't make your teeth brilliant white, but it can lighten the existing colour by several shades and make you feel confident. At MiddleTown Dental Care Services, we offer professional teeth whitening treatments that are safe, effective, and long-lasting. Our dental professionals use the latest technology and techniques to whiten your teeth and achieve optimal results.

Now, you may have a doubt. Do I need professional teeth whitening treatments when I can do them myself? We have an answer for you. Read more.

Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening?

You may get tempted to try over-the-counter teeth whitening products such as Whitening toothpaste, strips, or trays. While these products may work to an extent, they often produce inconsistent and temporary results. Additionally, they may cause sensitivity, irritation, or damage to your teeth and gums if used improperly or excessively.

Professional Teeth Whitening is a customized and controlled process for your unique needs and preferences. Our dental professionals will assess your teeth and determine the best whitening method based on the type and severity of your stains, oral health, and budget. We offer two types of teeth whitening treatments: in-office Whitening and take-home Whitening.

Let us see about them in detail.

In-office Whitening

In-office whitening is a fast and effective way to whiten your teeth in just one visit. Our dental professionals will apply a high-concentration bleaching gel to your teeth and activate it with a special light or laser. This process can lighten your teeth by several shades in just one hour, and you can leave our office with a dazzling smile.

Take-home Whitening

Take-home whitening is a more gradual but equally effective way to whiten your teeth. Our dental professionals will take impressions of your teeth and create custom-fitted whitening trays that fit over your teeth. You will receive a whitening gel and instructions on how to use the trays at home for a specified period, usually for a few weeks. This method allows you to control the pace and intensity of your whitening and achieve more natural-looking results.

These are the two types of teeth whitening procedures available in our dental care services. So, why do you want to use them? Are there any advantages to using them? 

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Yes, of course. Teeth Whitening has its own set of benefits. Due to its benefits, it gained popularity among people. 

Teeth whitening can offer numerous benefits, including:

  • Improved self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Enhanced appearance and attractiveness
  • A youthful and vibrant smile
  • Professional and social advantages
  • Boosted oral health and hygiene
  • Reduced risk of tooth decay and gum disease

These are some of the numerous teeth whitening benefits. As you become familiar with these benefits, now you might doubt how long teeth whitening works.

Are Teeth Whitening Permanent?

Nope, Teeth whitening is not permanent. It lasts from a few months to up to 3 years. It depends on every individual.

If you smoke or drink red wine, tea or coffee, it stains your teeth, and the teeth-whitening effect will not last long.

However, you must be aware that teeth whitening does not work on false teeth, veneers, crowns, fillings etc.

You might wish to know the risks available in this treatment by reading the article to this line. Read further for the answer.

What are the risks of Teeth Whitening?

Teeth Whitening has a few risks to be aware of. There is a chance that your gums will become sensitive to the chemicals used in teeth whitening, particularly if you already have sensitivity. There are also chances of gum burns, and some of the whitening kits used at home can harm tooth enamel.

Though these risks are not serious, you can still prefer teeth whitening after consulting with your dentist.

Should you Whiten your Teeth?

You must consult your dentist before whitening your teeth. The whitening products available may not react well with your teeth. In that case, your choice of teeth whitening may lead to various concerns. Carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide are the key ingredients used in teeth whitening. They are not good for all types of teeth. Our dentists are realistic and highly professional and will give you expert advice to avoid teeth whitening in case of white spots on your teeth, tooth decay, gums infections or teeth that are too sensitive.

So now, if you complete your teeth whitening, are you aware of how to take care of your shining teeth?

Maintaining your results

Your teeth whitening results depend on your eating, drinking, and oral hygiene habits. Though you have done the teeth whitening treatment, your teeth are still susceptible to staining from beverages like tea, coffee, and certain foods. You must rinse your mouth or brush your teeth soon after eating or drinking. It can keep those kinds of discolouring agents from settling into the surface of your teeth and decreases the chance for plaque to build up.

As you see from the above article, teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to enhance your smile and improve your oral health. At MiddleTown Dental Care Services, we are committed to providing you with the highest quality dental care and exceptional customer service. Our dental professionals will work with you to customize your treatment plan and ensure your comfort and satisfaction throughout the process.
