Tooth stains and discolorations are a common concern, especially among people who smoke cigarettes, chew tobacco, consume alcohol heavily, or do not pay close attention to their oral hygiene. Though tooth enamel is the sturdiest material in the body, it has pores on its surface. Staining particles can get accumulated in these pores and make your smile appear dull and discolored. At All Smile Dental in California, we provide various teeth whitening options to help our patients realize a vibrant flawless smile.
Why Teeth Whitening?
Brushing and flossing teeth consistently will help to remove the stains only to a small extent. However, it is not sufficient to maintain the aesthetics of your smile. Tooth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that will remove stubborn stains, reinstating your sparkling white smile. It is a quick, effective, straightforward approach and produces long-lasting results.
Teeth Whitening Procedures at All Smile Dental
Conventional teeth whitening is carried out at our dental practice under our dentist, Dr. A. P. Singh. The teeth would be meticulously cleaned, and we will also look for other concerns like the presence of cavities, teeth restorations, receding gum lines, etc. A rubber dam will be positioned on the teeth to shield the soft gum tissues. A whitening gel will then be applied to the teeth and spread uniformly. After a few minutes, the gel will be removed, and the teeth will be rinsed. The whitening process can be repeated several times if you desire to get a higher level of whitening or if your teeth are severely discolored.
Take-Home Whitening Kits
Home whitening kits comprise a customized plastic tray that would fit perfectly over your teeth. You can take the kit home and whiten the teeth at your convenience. Before starting the procedure, you have to clean your teeth thoroughly by brushing and flossing. A small quantity of whitening gel should be squeezed into the plastic trays and spread evenly. The trays should be worn on the teeth and allowed to stay for a few minutes before taking them off and rinsing your mouth. The procedure should be continued for a specific duration or until you achieve the desired results.
ZOOM Teeth Whitening
ZOOM whitening is a laser-activated teeth whitening procedure. It is a highly effective and quick means of bleaching the teeth. The gel used for this purpose is photosensitive, that is, activated using a high-intensity laser. Once activated, it releases foam filled with oxygen molecules that penetrate the porous surface of the enamel and eliminate the stains and discoloration. The effects of this whitening can last for a long time.
