The Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is a quick and effective cosmetic dental treatment that can make a huge impact on the appearance of your smile. Sudbury Dental Arts discusses easy teeth whitening treatments that can take years off of your smile and boost your confidence in one visit.

Is teeth whitening treatment permanent?

Teeth whitening isn’t permanent. At-home products may give results that last for a few months. Professional dental procedures may extend that time up to 2-3 years. The whitening effect can last a long time provided the patient keeps up with a regular and daily oral hygiene routine, as well as frequent visits to the dentist for check-ups and teeth cleaning.

What are the benefits of whitening your teeth?

Professional teeth whitening treatments often show improved results and protection, especially compared to popular over-the-counter whitening options.  Teeth whitening provided by Sudbury Dental Arts uses improved high-grade whitening formulas carefully designed to decrease side effects often associated with other whitening options. Professional teeth whitening gels reduce the sensitivity of the teeth and gum tissue. Gels are precisely applied for a safe, effective treatment for discolored teeth and protection of the gums.

Teeth Whitening Options

Take-Home Whitening Kits

Take-home kits allow patients to whiten their teeth from the comfort of their own homes easily. Teeth whitening trays are worn every day for a predetermined amount of time. The teeth whitening tray administers an even layer of whitening gel to the teeth for accurate results. The teeth whitening trays are created using custom molds of the patient’s teeth for precise results and to minimize damage to the soft tissue. Teeth whitening lasts over the span of a few weeks for natural results.

In-Office Whitening

This teeth whitening system does not require messy trays and the dramatic results will last longer than any other whitening treatment. In just one office visit you can enjoy a brighter smile with ZOOM! Whitening. ZOOM! Whitening is done in-office and is proven to be highly effective with immediate results. Within one hour your teeth can whiten up to 8 shades.

Can I whiten dental restorations like veneers or crowns?

If you have a crown, veneer, or dental implant, you may be wondering if it’s possible to white your dental work. Crowns, implants, and veneers are not made of enamel, they’re made of porcelain, and the porcelain material is chosen to match the shade of your existing teeth. Porcelain is a nonporous material, so it won’t stain, meaning your crowns, implant, or veneers should never need to be whitened. Porcelain doesn’t respond to either type of whitening treatment.
