What is professional whitening?
Teeth whitening is the process of removing the discolored pigments from the teeth. There may be various reasons for teeth discoloration. Frequent consumption of colorant food and liquids such as tea, coffee, cigarettes, etc. makes the color turn dark yellow. Also your natural tooth color might be darker than usual. The ideal color of your teeth should be the same shade as the whites of your eyes. Professional whitening is a quick and easy procedure to have a whiter smile in short time.
How does it work?
A hydrogen peroxide based gel is applied on the frontal surface of the teeth. Then it gets activated with a Laser light. Once it has been activated, hydrogen peroxide penetrates oxygen to the enamel and dentin. This makes your teeth get whiter. The procedure usually takes around 30 minutes.
Is it safe?
There is extensive research and clinical studies proving that teeth whitening is safe. Sensitivity can occur during the treatment in some patients. It goes away in couple of hours.
Things to remember before getting your teeth whitened:
Implant surgery is not painful at all like some might think. As the operation is performed under local anesthesia you won’t feel pain or discomfort during any of the stages. Following the procedure, you can eat, drink and keep on doing daily activities.
