Professional Teeth Whitening
It may take years, but eventually your smile will become darker or yellow. Even if you don’t use tobacco or drink coffee, your smile can stain over time from the foods and beverages you consume. While this can be a natural part of the aging process, some people do not like how their teeth look because stained or yellow teeth can make you appear older than you really are.
This is especially a problem if it affects your self-esteem when you laugh or smile. If you are self-conscious or hesitant to smile in photographs, talk to us. We have solutions that can improve the appearance of your smile quickly and affordably.
Professional Teeth Whitening (Teeth Bleaching)
At Jones Lake Dental, we offer a custom take-home professional teeth whitening system. With professional dental whitening, you can have faster, more reliable results than with over-the-counter options. Because you will have the supervision of a skilled dentist, your results will be more consistent and predictable than with strips or rinses. Additionally, professional whitening gel achieves a brighter and faster result.
How Take-Home Whitening Works
When you call and schedule a consultation at our Moncton dental office, we will set you up for an evaluation with Dr. Matt Bradshaw to make sure you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. Most of our patients can bleach their teeth with no complications. We will discuss potential outcomes with you and take a before shade so that you can see your starting and finishing results.
Next, one of our team members will take impressions of your teeth so that we can create your custom whitening trays. When you pick them up, we will also supply enough whitening gel to get you started. Many patients see dramatic results after just a few whitening treatments.
Safety and Side Effects
Whitening is completely safe for most of our patients, and they experience very few side effects. The most common side effect is tooth sensitivity. If you experience sensitivity, take some time off in between your whitening treatments. At least a day or two in between should help to reduce or eliminate your symptoms.
Leaving your trays in for too long can also create problems with tooth sensitivity, especially to hot and cold beverages. If you experience extreme sensitivity, give us a call and we may be able to provide some solutions to help.
The other common side effect is sore gums, caused by overfilling your whitening trays. Putting just a tiny drop of whitening gel in your tray for each tooth will keep the gel from oozing out onto your gums and causing irritation.
