Teeth Whitening Treatments from All About Teeth
We know how difficult it can be when you are presented with a range of options that all claim to be the best and teeth whitening treatments are no different. The truth is, only your dentist will know which of these treatments is right for you and which one you will stand to benefit from the most. At All About Teeth, our team of dentists recommend and use a professional grade teeth whitening system call Opalescence. It is a take-home teeth whitening treatment that is only available through a licensed dentist and is able to give you a sparkling smile by brightening your teeth by several shades.
Opalescence is incredibly safe to use and the teeth whitening gel doesn’t leak out of your whitening trays and onto your gums while you have them in. It contains potassium nitrate and fluoride and studies have shown these three elements can minimise sensitivity, increase enamel hardness and improve the general health of your teeth. Our teeth whitening treatments contain a powerful whitening gel available in 10% and 16% carbamide peroxide concentrations, that can give you results after just one treatment.
How Teeth Whitening Treatments Work
Teeth whitening can be a misleading term and actually works by removing the stains found deep inside your teeth that cause your teeth to become discoloured. These stains are known as either extrinsic or intrinsic stains, extrinsic being on the outer layers of your teeth and intrinsic a little deeper. The teeth whitening procedure itself is a relatively simple one to perform and can remove even the most stubborn of extrinsic and intrinsic stains.
Opalescence uses its active whitening ingredient to penetrate your enamel and rid your teeth of the discoloured molecules underneath. This whitening ingredient contains oxygen molecules that break the bonds of the discoloured molecules in your teeth and spread through them to give them their sparkling appearance. All of our teeth whitening treatments are overseen by an experienced and skilled dentist, so you are in good hands with regard to your safety.
One of the few dangers that you can encounter is when you purchase teeth whitening kits over the counter instead of coming to us. A lot of patients don’t even know whether or not they are a suitable candidate for teeth whitening treatments or how powerful they are. Should you be suffering from decayed teeth, infected gums and white spots, or you have multiple fillings or caps then you will not be considered a suitable candidate for teeth whitening treatment.
