There are many different types of teeth whitening treatments available. From store bought whitening trays, to toothpastes, mouthwash, and dozens of other “whitening” products available, it’s hard to understand how teeth whitening works.
All teeth whitening uses the same basic treatment principles. Teeth whitening gels and treatments contain some kind of active teeth whitening ingredient, based on oxygen molecules. The most common ingredients are carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide.
Teeth whitening works by using oxygen molecules that react to discoloration on your teeth. Peroxides “break” the bonds that hold discolored molecules in place in your teeth, and penetrate deeply into the enamel.
The result? Teeth whitening “lifts” and removes surface stains from your enamel, and gives you a smile that’s whiter and brighter!
At Perfect Choice Dental, we offer both professional in-office teeth whitening, and take-home trays that allow you to whiten your teeth on your own schedule.
In-office bleaching and whitening procedures are best for immediate results. If you want your teeth whitened for a special occasion, like a last-minute presentation, a big date, or your wedding, you can come in for a single treatment and leave our offices with a beautifully white smile.
Dr. Overmyer will begin by applying a protective gel to your gums, to protect soft tissues. Then, a special gel containing peroxide is applied to your teeth, and activated using UV light. This light causes the oxygen molecules in the peroxide to respond, lifting surface stains in about an hour.
At-home whitening is usually somewhat less expensive than in-office bleaching. Though the results are more gradual, at-home whitening from Perfect Choice Dental is equally as effective as in-office treatments.
Dr. Overmyer will take an impression of your teeth at Perfect Choice Dental, and then create a customized set of whitening trays, built to fit your teeth precisely. Simply squeeze the gel into the trays and wear them as directed. You should notice a difference in just a few days with full results at the end of your recommended treatment time.
Regardless of whether you choose in-office or at-home teeth whitening, Perfect Choice Dental is… a perfect choice for teeth whitening services!
