Teeth whitening is the process of making the color of your teeth lighter with a bleaching product. Your teeth tend to gather stains because of the porousness of your enamel. Any time you drink coffee, tea, or red wine, or if you smoke, the pigments from the dark substances can linger and stain your enamel. Over time, the result is yellow or brown tones across the surfaces of your teeth.
Other stains appear gray in color. Teeth whitening treatment can’t effectively lift gray-toned staining because it isn’t on your tooth enamel. Instead, it’s in the next layer down called the dentin. Gray stains often come from traumatic injuries or medications and are best concealed with veneers or crowns if they don’t respond to teeth whitening.
At Dental Studio of Jersey City, the team offers two teeth whitening methods. Your dentist helps you choose the appropriate method for your preferences and time frame. They are:
In-office teeth whitening is a treatment that takes place in the dentist’s chair at Dental Studio of Jersey City. You’ll get complete results in just one visit that you can enjoy right away. The team uses the GLO™ whitening system, which involves a bleaching gel application and a mouthpiece with an LED light that fits over your teeth to activate the gel in eight-minute intervals. Your dentist checks your teeth between each interval.
Home teeth whitening from Dental Studio of Jersey City also uses GLO™ whitening products. Instead of using it in the office, you can take your whitening kit home. You wear the bleaching gel over your teeth for 32 minutes at a time, and you’ll see the full effect within about two weeks.
Teeth whitening treatments are purely cosmetic, meaning they change the appearance of your smile without making any significant alterations to its structure or improving the way your teeth function. However, the treatment offers many benefits. They include:
Whiter teeth might sound like a small change, but teeth whitening is an easy way to make a noticeable difference in the way your smile looks. As a result, you might feel more inclined to smile and appear friendlier and more approachable to others.
