Professional Teeth Whitening | Lansdowne Laser Teeth Whitening

professional-teeth-whitening_clip_image002Have you noticed that your teeth seem to be more yellow than they used to be? Stained teeth are common, particularly in those who smoke or regularly drink coffee. Others find that their teeth have yellowed with no apparent cause. With the popularity of at-home teeth whitening strips, you may be wondering about the best teeth whiteners currently available.

There are several different options for dentist tooth whitening. First, Dr. Kamboh can create custom whitening trays fitted to your teeth. This allows you to complete the whitening process at home by wearing the trays a few hours at a time. Most people find that it takes about a week to notice results with this teeth whitening method.

If you wish to have your teeth whitening completed in our Lansdowne dentist’s office, there are several methods available, with the two most common being peroxide-based tooth whitening gel or laser tooth whitening. During conventional tooth whitening, the bleaching compound is applied to the teeth. Professional teeth whitening is much more effective than at-home options because dentists can offer much higher concentration gel. This gel breaks up stains after being activated with a special light.

Laser teeth whitening requires everyone in the room to wear protective eyewear. A special gel is spread on the teeth to absorb laser light energy. This laser penetrates the tooth enamel, increasing the whitening effect. With either in-office method, the process usually takes about an hour, depending on the severity of discoloration. Unlike the weeks-long process of using an at-home teeth whitening kit, dentist whitening offers immediate results. The results do vary from patient to patient, although most people find that their teeth are six to ten shades lighter after the treatment.

Professional teeth whitening treatments can restore your teeth to a pearly white appearance, which can drastically chance the appearance of your smile. To determine which are the best teeth whiteners for you, consider the effectiveness, the length of time before results can be seen, as well as your comfort with the procedure.
