Professional Teeth Whitening Solutions You Need To Try
Without a doubt, it’s probably crossed your mind that you wish you could have whiter, brighter teeth. You might have even already tried some whitening treatments with the strips you can buy from the store or maybe even professional teeth whitening at your local dental clinic. Or—you’ve never had an actual teeth whitening treatment at all. Whether you fit into any of those categories or not, it’s good to keep yourself updated on what options are available to you and best fitted to your personal circumstances.
Laguna Vista Dental seeks to provide this insight on what professional teeth whitening services are available and how to navigate through the options to determine the best one for you! Read below to find out more and begin making your way towards that dream smile you always wanted but never thought you could actually have.
Although there are many claimed teeth whitening “hacks” you can try to make yourself and apply at home, the best method is to get your teeth professionally whitened by a professional. Seeing a professional will also cut down the amount of time and money it takes for you to see the results you’re looking for!
DIY teeth whitening treatments will actually most likely cost you more in the long run because multiple applications will be required to get the same results you’d probably get from a single professional treatment. Here are some more reasons to choose professional teeth whitening from Eagle Falls Dentistry:
“In addition to how long it can take for over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments to have a noticeable effect on your smile, these products often fail to provide people with a smile that is as white as they would like. The professional teeth whitening materials used by dentists produce better results than at-home treatments because they use stronger bleaching agents. If you’re unsatisfied with the outcomes you’ve experienced with various at-home whitening treatments, then consider asking your dentist about professional teeth whitening.”
Once you start considering professional teeth whitening services, you can then consult with your local dentist to see what options they provide. At Laguna Vista Dental, we offer Opalescence whitening treatments to our patients. Learn more about this professional teeth whitening option from this article written by the Consumer Guide to Dentistry below:
“Praised for the viscosity of its bleaching gel – a sticky quality that is considered a major plus in tooth-bleaching – Opalescence Boost relies on chemistry for achieving its effects, and does not include the use of a special light activator. Its 38 percent solution of hydrogen peroxide gel contains a unique patented component called PF, a mix of potassium nitrate (reducing the risk of sensitivity) and fluoride (the enamel-strengthener which reduces the risk of cavities).”
Although professional teeth whitening services are typically a little longer than at-home teeth whitening procedures, the results you get from one professional treatment will be significantly greater in their effectiveness. Kantor Dental Group discusses the length of the at-home and in-clinic whitening procedures with the Opalescence whitening gel:
“HOW LONG IS THE PROCEDURE?
The entire procedure takes just over one hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed by one hour of bleaching. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure (we recommend a cleaning prior to the actual Boost Whitening session).
HOW LONG DOES OPALESCENCE TAKE-HOME WHITENING TAKE?
The Opalescence take-home gel is designed to be worn between four and eight hours per application. Dr. Kantor will advise you on how long you should wear each application. A recent study showed that you can achieve an average improvement of six shades* after just three nights of use.”
