Safe and effective teeth whitening in Gresham
Teeth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look.
Gresham Family Dentistry provides everything you need for safe and effective tooth whitening in one kit. The process of whitening happens over the course of two weeks. During these two weeks, Gresham Family Dentistry provides custom bleach trays that you fill with professional bleach and set on your teeth for up to one hour a day.
How does teeth whitening work?
The professional bleach used for teeth whitening removes the stain from your teeth by opening the micro-pores of the tooth and bleaching out the stain. This works on stains from coffee, wine, food, tobacco, aging, and other lifestyle factors. Once you have reached your desired level of brightness, daily bleaching is no longer necessary. Occasional maintenance will keep your teeth bright and white. For maintenance, it is recommended to whiten teeth for 2-3 days after your regularly scheduled dental cleanings.
How can I reduce tooth sensitivity?
While the bleaching process does not damage your teeth, it can make them more sensitive. While bleaching, do not use a whitening toothpaste, as they tend to be more abrasive. Switch to a sensitive toothpaste instead. It is also best to avoid very cold foods and drinks. Avoid overfilling the teeth whitening trays. If the bleach reaches your gums it can cause irritation. If you already know your teeth are sensitive before beginning the teeth whitening process, only bleach every other day.
