Teeth Whitening

Professonal Teeth Whitening Brookhaven, GA.

Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” procedure.

What are the details of teeth whitening?

It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much you show when you talk and smile. In only a day or two your custom bleach splints will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear splints. With only a few hours of wear per day, our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. We’ll want to take “after” photos at your next appointment.

Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try.

How is teeth whitening done?

An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each night for about 3-4 hours for a week or two, and at the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or porcelain veneers may be more appropriate.

Considerations for Teeth Whitening

Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.

Is Teeth Whitening Right for you?

What is the Reason for Tooth Discolouration?
Some of the reasons that can cause discolored teeth are: Drinking coffee, tea, wine or soft drinks Natural aging – The dentin underneath the enamel of a tooth darkens with time naturally Smoking or any tobacco Accidents – a dead nerve may darken a tooth Root Canal Therapy
Why Should You Choose Professional Whitening?

There are many over the counter whitening systems, from toothpaste, mouthwash, and whitening strips. However, they will not produce the desired whitening that you may be looking for, in most to all cases. The reasons for this is because of the following:

  • There is no dentist there to make sure that you’re a candidate for whitening
  • There is no dentist there to make sure that you are using the proper product or using the product correctly in general. A dentist is able to tweak the dosage if necessary to get better results.
  • Overuse of a product can cause damage to your teeth
  • Over the counter, products may not be the right size for your smile so there is a possibility that some teeth won’t become as white as others.
What are the Types of Professional Teeth Whitening?

There are a couple of different products that professionals use to get your desired whitening. In office, whitening techniques are the fastest way to a whiter and brighter smile. In just one dental office visit you can see major results to your smile. At Gentle Smiles Dental our main whitening system is ZOOM! Whitening. Your Brookhaven dentist will apply the whitening agent to your teeth and then a special lighting system is then used to accelerate the whitening process. The process itself takes about an hour to complete.
