Professional teeth whitening could make you feel more confident in your smile.
If you are looking for a simple yet effective way to boost your self-esteem and improve your appearance, you should consider getting professional teeth whitening treatment! Even if you might not immediately realize it, our smiles do dull and yellow as we get older. Luckily, our Raleigh, NC, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ajamu Giscombe, can give you a more radiant smile with the help of our at-home whitening treatment.
How does professional teeth whitening work?
Here at our Raleigh dental office, we whiten smiles using a professional at-home treatment, a system which utilizes custom-made mouth trays that are filled with a specialized whitening gel. You will leave these whitening trays on for around an hour every night for a couple of weeks, with results appearing in as little as seven days.
Whitening gel used in this treatment contains one of two active ingredients: hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. Tooth enamel is porous, which allows the active ingredient to penetrate into the enamel of the tooth to break apart stubborn, deep-set stains and discolorations caused by the things we eat and drink.
Who should consider professional teeth whitening?
If you are dealing with external stains caused by coffee, red wine, tomato sauce, or other dark foods and drinks, then teeth whitening is the right way to get a brighter smile. While professional whitening is powerful, it isn’t able to treat internal stains effectively and it won’t be able to whiten dental restorations like crowns or fillings.
