There are new teeth whitening products released on the market constantly. With so many options available, it can be difficult to know which product is best for you, and even more difficult to know if teeth whitening is safe. It’s important to remember that like any other cosmetic procedure, you should always consult with a professional before taking any risks with your smile.
Teeth whitening is a process by which stains are removed from teeth to leave them looking whiter and brighter.
Teeth whitening is not a permanent solution; it’s just an improvement over the appearance of your teeth, as they will continue to yellow over time. Most over-the-counter kits will not replicate the results achieved in a dentist’s office. At Marx Family Dental, we pride ourselves on using the latest whitening technology in home kits and in-office.
There are a couple of options for teeth whitening.
There are a couple of options for teeth whitening. In-office whitening is the most common method. This procedure requires your dentist to apply a bleaching agent to your teeth and then expose them to ultraviolet light—a process that can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. Our practice uses Zoom!®, a professional teeth whitening treatment that gets your teeth an average of eight shades whiter — in just one hour. The results are immediate and visible, meaning you’ll leave the office with a sparkling bright smile!
At-home whitening is a good option if you travel frequently or do not have time to visit our office. We offer a range of personally-fit mouthguards and bleaching gels to lighten your teeth between four to six shades in two weeks or less. The minimum requirements for at-home whitening are that you have decay-free teeth and perfectly healthy gums in order to use the bleaching gel.
There are no side effects to teeth whitening.
Teeth whitening is a safe and effective procedure. There are no side effects to teeth whitening, so you can rest assured that you won’t have to deal with any unwanted side effects.
Teeth whitening is safe for everyone. Even if you have sensitive teeth, teeth whitening is a safe option for you.
Teeth whitening is both safe and comfortable.
Teeth whitening is a safe procedure that can be completed quickly and easily. You won’t feel any discomfort during the treatment, so rest assured that your only concern is how fast you’ll get your new smile!
When combined with regular dental care at our office and some general home care tips (such as making sure to keep your mouth clean), teeth whitening is an excellent way to keep your pearly whites looking great year after year!
