Pros of Professional Teeth Whitening

Getting your teeth whitened by a dentist could make a dramatic difference in how your smile looks. Here at Harbor Mesa Dental Care in Costa Mesa, CA, teeth whitening remains one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments provided by Dr. Sanacore, Dr. Kunert, and Dr. DeBourg-Shilaimon.

Why? Because it’s the easiest and affordable cosmetic dental procedures that make an obvious difference in an individual’s self-confidence and appearance. Professional teeth whitening could be performed right in your dentist’s office or in your house under the guidance of your dentist. Here’s what you need to know about them.

In-Office Professional Teeth Whitening

Also referred to as in-office bleaching, this entails the application of a bleaching product right on the teeth. A light may be utilized for accelerating the effects of the bleach, ensuring fast and efficient results.

A session of in-office bleaching that lasts from 60 to 90 minutes could provide excellent whitening results. For some people, one session may suffice, but for others, they might require about two sessions to attain the desired whiteness level they’re after. Likewise, since the whitening agent is directly applied to your teeth, you are assured of uniform whitening results.

At-Home Professional Teeth Whitening Kits

With this professional teeth whitening option, your dentist in Costa Mesa, CA, will take impressions or molds of your mouth that would be the basis of your customized mouthpiece. You will likewise be provided with bleaching gel with a lower concentration of bleach than what is typically utilized for in-office bleaching.

Your dentist will instruct you to fill your mouthpiece with the bleaching gel and then wear it for several hours daily. Your custom mouthpiece will help ensure maximum contact between the bleach and your teeth. Expect follow-up visits with your dentist to make sure that your mouthpiece fits correctly and to check on your whitening results.

Regardless of which professional teeth whitening treatment you choose, remember that your results are not permanent. Maintaining those pearly whites means going through the process on a regular basis. However, avoiding staining foods and drinks as well as smoking tobacco will help make certain that you maintain your results for longer, two years or so before you require a touchup whitening treatment.
