Teeth whitening is a valuable service that can turn back the clock on years of staining and discoloration. Biscayne Dental Center is committed to improving each and every smile that walks into our office. With teeth whitening, we are able to increase the confidence of every client through simple, low-impact procedures that can make a serious difference in the aesthetics of your smile.
Clients with discolored teeth often lose self-esteem and confidence, but discolored teeth are a universal issue. Even with optimum oral health practices, teeth still lose their whiteness over time. There are a variety of causes and risk factors for stained teeth. Below are listed several of the main reasons teeth stain quickly.
- Tobacco Use
- Gum Disease
- Dark Drinks Like Coffee
- Simple Aging
- Antibiotic Use
- Simple Genetics
- Over-Use of Fluoride
- Degeneration of Nerves
- Lack of Oral Hygiene
There are a variety of ways to whiten teeth. Although there are quite a few over-the-counter options, the best teeth whitening procedures are the ones only approached in a dental office like Biscayne Dental Center. Depending on the situation, we can perform whitening in the office or provide take-home kits and options for personal use.
Teeth Whitening Treatment Options
Because a confident smile is so essential, there have been a wide range of teeth whitening options developed. Bleaching, BriteSmile, Zoom!, and a carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide option all exist for the express purpose of brightening your smile. Choosing a procedure is up to the individual client, making understanding each type of treatment quite essential.
Bleaching through the use of custom bleach splints is one of the most popular ways to brighten a smile. This method utilizes a unique bleaching agent that is placed into customized bleach splints. These splints are clear and almost completely invisible. This option requires only a couple of wears per day to brighten your smile to the proper level.
Unique procedures like Zoom! and BriteSmile utilize the latest technologies to whiten teeth in as little as two days. There are even one hour teeth whitening procedures that allow individuals to walk out of the office with a brighter smile. Some choose to go with the simple gel-focused procedure where a thin layer is applied to the teeth and is then activated with a unique ultraviolet light.
Teeth Whitening Facts
For most stain and discoloration cases, simple teeth whitening techniques are more than enough to correct the color of a smile. Sometimes, however, discoloration comes from deep stains that simply cannot be removed through basic teeth whitening procedures. In these cases, Biscayne Dental Center advises other dental procedures and dental implants like Lumineers, porcelain veneers, and even cosmetic crowns.
Teeth whitening is completely safe when approached with careful, expert supervision. Cosmetic dental procedures like bleaching are incredibly safe and are often considered to be some of the safest options for improving a smile. Without professional supervision, however, teeth whitening can be dangerous.
