Of all cosmetic dentistry services, teeth whitening is one of our most popular options. Teeth are noticeably whiter almost immediately following professional whitening treatment, and it produces many benefits including increased self-confidence, improved appearance and an overall boost in happiness.
At Zen Triangle Dentistry, Dr. Vaghani offers both in-office professional whitening and take-home whitening trays — designed to transform dull, discolored teeth into a brighter smile. We offer Zoom Teeth Whitening and Kor Teeth Whitening cosmetic dental procedures.
For most adults with all of their permanent teeth and good general health, teeth whitening is an excellent way to enhance their smiles. Teeth whitening is especially beneficial for anyone who has ever felt self-conscious about smiling in public or wished to remove yellow stains from their teeth.
Because professional whitening works quickly to produce dramatic results, patients who desire to brighten their teeth but don’t have much time before an important event will also benefit from whitening treatment.
In most cases, in-office whitening can be completed in as little as a lunch break and whiten teeth by several shades. Similarly, busy patients may prefer our professional at-home whitening treatment as a great alternative to brightening teeth from the comfort of their home.
We can help determine if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening during an initial consultation. This is the best way to ensure you are receiving the most appropriate dental treatment for your teeth whitening goals.
What Causes Tooth Discoloration?
There are many reasons teeth become dingy and discolored. In some cases, the stains are intrinsic, which means the change in tooth color is taking place below the enamel’s surface. This may be caused by oral diseases, damaged roots or types of medication. For intrinsic stains, veneers and other more advanced cosmetic services are usually recommended over professional teeth whitening.
Other types of tooth discoloration can be categorized as extrinsic stains. These types of stains accumulate on a tooth’s porous outer layer over time and are often caused by smoking and stain-producing foods and beverages such as coffee, tea and red wine. These types of stains can be successfully treated with professional teeth whitening services.
Why Professional Teeth Whitening Is Superior to Teeth Whitening Kits
There are a number of over-the-counter whitening solutions available today. Unfortunately, the majority of these options aren’t as powerful or effective as the treatments offered by your dentist. Store-bought whitening products take longer to achieve results, and they also have the potential to damage your enamel and gums. Dr. Vaghani can provide a safe, high-quality whitening solution for your teeth that delivers far more impressive and longer-lasting results than over-the-counter whitening strips.
When whitening procedures are carried out by our practice, patients enjoy noticeably brighter teeth while receiving the benefits of professional treatment and supervision.
