Tooth whitening also referred to as dental bleaching, is the process of removing any staining of the natural teeth, leaving the teeth brighter and more aesthetically pleasing. Most celebrities and public figures that you see on TV and magazines have teeth whitening because it creates a better smile that looks great in pictures.
In Dr Fernandes’ dental practice, there are two available tooth whitening options; in-office dental bleaching and a take-home tooth whitening, DIY solution for you. There may be a lot of take-home tooth whitening options to buy online, but not all of them are safe for the health of your teeth. It is always best to get your DIY kit from a dental practice. Dr Fernandes can prescribe the right amount that you need is that you avoid having overly paper-white looking teeth. The health of your teeth come first.
In-office vs Take home solutions
We offer in-office dental bleaching: This involves a single 90-minute session for an immediate whitening effect. It also includes a maintenance kit for use after the procedure is complete. The advantage here is that you do not have to do anything on your own plus you have immediate results.
Take-home dental bleaching: This is a DIY approach to tooth whitening. The patient is supplied with bleaching trays and material. This requires the patient to apply the material every day for at least 2-weeks to get a pleasing whitening effect. Dr Fernandes will administer a take-home solution that is unique to your needs so that you get quality results.
Why should you consider tooth whitening?
Depending on your diet, stained teeth are a reality for many, but they do not have to stay that way. Why sit with a problem that can be easily fixed? Whitening teeth look cleaner and healthier. If you are a regular coffee and tea drinker, someone that does a lot of public speaking or want to boost your confidence, this simple cosmetic procedure is designed for you.
Tooth whitening also forms a part of the smile makeover process. A smile makeover will encompass other cosmetic procedures including veneers, dental crowns and bridges. If you are looking to have your teeth whitened or want a more comprehensive makeover, contact our practice for the best treatment.
