At St. Therese Family Dentistry, we provide comprehensive teeth whitening for you and your family. We are committed to helping you restore the quality of your smile by making your teeth sparkling white and beautiful.
A Teeth whitening is the most effective way of restoring the natural color of your teeth without removing any of your teeth surface.
Why would I need Teeth Whitening?
You may get your teeth whitened when they become discolored and stained on the surface. Your teeth become stained or yellow because of:
- Drinking dark-colored liquids such as tea, coffee, red wine or blackcurrant
- Using tobacco
- Not taking proper oral hygiene
When stains and other materials accumulate on the surface of your teeth they form tartar (calculus). Tartar also contributes in staining your teeth.
How does a teeth whitening work?
A teeth cleaning involves two main procedures namely, vital whitening and non-vital whitening procedure. Vital Whitening is the most common type of procedure performed by dentists.
A professional teeth whitening is done in the dentist’s office. When you come for your teeth whitening at our office in Buena Park, our dentist will examine your teeth to create an appropriate treatment procedure.
In-office teeth whitening allows the dentist to use a more powerful whitening gel and specialized light or laser that ensures bleaching happens faster.
The dental hygienist puts a rubber shield or gel on the gums to protect them. A whitening product is then applied to your teeth using a specially made tray that fits perfectly into your mouth. This whitening product contains an active ingredient of hydrogen peroxide and is activated by laser light. As the active product breaks down, oxygen gets into the enamel on the teeth and the tooth color is made lighter.
It usually takes between 30 to 90 minutes to have your teeth whitened at the dentist’s office. You will need 1 to 3 appointments to have your teeth fully whitened and sparkling.
Is teeth whitening safe?
A Teeth whitening is both safe and effective. The active bleaching agent (carbide peroxide) which yields hydrogen peroxide is approved by the American Dental Association (ADA).
