Professional Teeth Whitening
Teeth discoloration is an extremely common concern of patients. The diet and oral hygiene habits you maintain can directly impact the color of your teeth. Sometimes, regardless of what you do, you can develop yellow teeth due to genetics and wear-and-tear that normally comes as you get older.
While over-the-counter treatments exist for teeth whitening, they are not nearly as effective or safe as professional teeth whitening offered by an experienced dentist.
Dr. Hagerman offers patients in-office teeth whitening, which lightens your teeth and brightens your smile. In as little as one appointment, you can have teeth up to eight shades whiter than before.
Dramatic Results In An Hour
Teeth whitening can offer you dramatic results without extensive time spent getting treatment. In fact, many people get teeth whitening done on their lunch hour. Another benefit of in-office teeth whitening is that you won't have to worry about messy trays to wear. Once you walk out of your dentist’s office, you are done with treatment and can enjoy your white and bright teeth immediately.
How Teeth Whitening Is Done
Your dentist will start the teeth whitening treatment by placing protection covering over your lips and gums. Then, they will apply a gel whitener on the surface of your teeth. The gel whitener will contain hydrogen peroxide, which bleaches stains on teeth. Dentists use whitening gels with significantly more hydrogen peroxide than over-the-counter gels, which makes it far more effective.
A lamp will be focused on your teeth to activate the hydrogen peroxide, so it can penetrate the teeth and break down stains and discoloration effectively. Once the treatment is over, most likely within an hour, you will notice dramatically whiter and brighter teeth.
