How Professional Teeth Whitening Works

Professional teeth whitening is a simple and quick way to improve your overall tooth appearance. The process consists of a whitening gel being applied to the surface of your teeth to help remove stains and whiten discolored teeth. Before applying the solution the dentist will remove any plaque around the teeth, they will make sure your teeth are dry and your gums are covered. They will then retract your cheeks and tongue to make sure the solution does not get anywhere except on your teeth. Once the solution is applied it will typically stay on for 30 to 60 minutes until the whiteness color is achieved then will be rinsed off. Once your professional whitening is complete, you will be able to enjoy your whiter teeth.

What to Expect After a Teeth Whitening Treatment

You may be expected to do more than one treatment to achieve the whiteness you want. You may experience some sensitivity after the procedure is complete for a few days. You can treat your sensitive teeth by avoiding hot or cold foods and taking pain medication. The treatment can typically last anywhere from a few months to three years. To make this treatment last longer you want to make sure you are performing your daily oral hygiene, as well as, avoid foods like coffee, tea, soda, red wine, and tobacco use. When proper precautions are taken you will enjoy your white teeth for a longer period of time.
