Teeth whitening refers to the process of bleaching your teeth to break up the concentration of stains and discoloration, giving your teeth a whiter appearance. The results are transformative, giving you a smile you’ll be proud to show off.
If you’re interested in brightening your smile, professional teeth whitening with Dr. Schroeder is the way to go. It’s cost-effective and convenient, taking less than an hour in the office.
A professional whitening delivers far better results than over-the-counter options because professional whitening agents have a higher concentration of hydrogen peroxide, which makes the results more noticeable and long-lasting.
The most common causes of tooth stains and discolorations are from certain food and drinks you consume. Some examples of stain-causing foods and beverages include:
Another cause of teeth discoloration is your natural aging process. Over time, your teeth’s enamel wears down, revealing the dentin — the yellowish layer beneath. Certain illnesses, medications, and tobacco use — both smoking and chewing — can also lead to stains and discoloration.
In-office teeth whitening is a quick, safe procedure. It takes less than an hour and involves no downtime so you can even make an appointment for a quick touch-up to your smile during your lunch break.
Dr. Schroeder prepares a tray that’s lined with a powerful Zoom! the whitening agent that’s active ingredient is hydrogen peroxide. The whitening solution goes to work on your teeth fast. You bite into the tray as the whitening solution breaks up the concentration of tooth stains. LED whitening lamps accelerate results, brightening your smile by up to eight shades in about 45 minutes.
Right after your appointment, you might feel some slight tooth sensitivity. This should subside shortly, typically within a few hours of the procedure.
An alternative option Dr. Schroeder can set you up with is a take-home whitening kit. For this option, you’re given a set of trays that you line with gel and wear in the comfort of your own home. In just a few weeks, you can achieve similar results to that of an in-office whitening procedure.
Teeth whitening results should last 1-2 years, if not longer. The key to maintaining your whitening results is continuing to brush and floss diligently. Also, try to limit your intake of stain-causing foods and drinks.
