Professional teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure for good reason! Teeth whitening is a simple and relatively quick way to get brighter, whiter teeth in a single visit to All Smiles Dental Care in Phoenix.
There are numerous over-the-counter products that claim to whiten your teeth, and many will produce mild lightening effects if used correctly. These products take time to work, taking anywhere from a week to a month to see noticeable results. At All Smiles Dental Care in Phoenix, we give you dramatic results in an hour or less! We can lighten your teeth anywhere from three to ten shades in a single visit. How does this work?
Professional teeth whitening lifts stains out of the enamel of stained or discolored teeth. The process uses highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to penetrate the tiny tubules throughout enamel and lift stains and discolorations out of the tooth. This is called extrinsic whitening and it leaves you with a dazzling white smile!
Teeth whitening works well for teeth that have been stained due to:
Teeth whitening or teeth bleaching uses only biosafe hydrogen and carbamide peroxide. Your dentist first cleans your teeth, dries them, then affixes a barrier to keep your gums away from the peroxide. The whitening agents are completely safe but may irritate the gums in certain cases.
Your dentist at All Smiles Dental Care applies whitening gel to each tooth. After the gel has had some time to penetrate the stain-filled microscopic holes in the teeth, your dentist uses a specialized light to cause rapid chemical changes in the whitening gel. It is through this special process that causes the stains to lift up and away from inside of your enamel.
We send you home with mouth trays and prescription-strength whitening gel to help you keep the whitening and brightening going at home.
