Are your looking for a brighter, whiter smile? If so, you will possibly already be baffled about the range of options available to you. Home whitening, in chair whitening, laser whitening and a whole range of other products readily available over the counter or on the internet. So which product will give the desired result? In our short teeth whitening review we have listed the advantages and disadvantages of both professional whitening processes and inexpensive internet kits.If you want to know more about shanghai dental , you can click here.

Laser Whitening ( also known as Zoom) - Possibly the newest and definitely the quickest, most effective route to a bright Hollywood smile for most busy people. Light activated teeth whitening typically takes between one to two hours and the results are dramatic. The procedure is typically carried out at the dental surgery, it is not intrusive and patients will feel comfortable throughout the entire process. The biggest drawback is the cost. Patients looking for the quick fix will need to pay between $500 to $1000. This method of teeth whitening is not recommended for those with particularly young or sensitive teeth.

The second option is possibly the most widely used form of whitening and involves the use of a bleaching agent in specifically moulded trays. Whilst being cost effective (typically costing between $ 200 and $500) results are not always as dramatic as other methods of whitening. The success of the treatment relies on regular and correct use of the trays. However when used properly results are typically seen within 3-4 days of use. Some patients complain or sensitivity after whitening but this can easily be managed by the dentist.

A wide range of teeth whitening products are also available on the internet or over the counter. The cost is generally cheaper than professional whitening procedures but results can vary and also pose a risk to healthy teeth. Put on unhealthy teeth, major problems can arise. In general if it comes from the internet, the concentration will be too little to be effective and it is a waste of time and money.

Before trying any of the procedures above it is advisable to consider the teeth whitening reviews carefully and contact your own dentist prior to treatment.If you want to know more about cosmetic care , you can click here.

If you are looking to quickly and dramatically improve the appearance of your smile, you don’t need to look further than professional tooth whitening.If you want to know more about shanghai dental , you can click here.

Before deciding what whitening option is best for you, you should understand the basic types of staining. The most common type of stain is staining on the outside of the enamel – this is referred to as extrinsic staining. Extrinsic staining is caused by things such as coffee, tea, soda, red wine, and smoking. When staining is deeper into the teeth or originating from the pulp, it is referred to as intrinsic staining.

Intrinsic staining is not easily “whitened.” In the majority of cases it will require restorations such as veneers to cover the stain. In some, cases we are able to whiten intrinsic stains.

For extrinsic stains, our in-office whitening system, Opalescence Boost, is very effective at dramatically improving the look of your smile in about 60 minutes. If you are not looking for whiter teeth in only 1 hour, you can choose to use take home trays with gel to whiten your teeth over a period of about 2 weeks. With either system, occasional “touch-ups” are needed as teeth do re-stain at varying rates depending on your use/consumption of staining materials such as tea, soda, red wine, smoking, etc…If you want to know more about Oral Hygiene , you can click here.

What is involved in each whitening procedure?

In-Office Whitening

During our 60 minute in-office whitening procedure, we use a gel that is placed on your teeth in 2 different increments to achieve. Our system achieves great results without using the light that I am sure most of you have seen in the past. Research has shown that the light does nothing but cause sensitivity, and we want to whiten your teeth with the least amount of possible sensitivity.

Take Home Whitening Trays

For take home whitening trays, we take impressions of your upper and lower teeth so that we can make custom-fitted whitening trays. You wear the trays with whitening gel either overnight or for four hours in the evening. Teeth whitening with the take home tray system takes approximately 2 weeks of daily use.

The blue light works by activating the gel to help make your teeth much whiter in just one office visit. During your visit, you will receive three gel applications.

Zoom In-Office Whitening (Hockessin Office)

The Zoom! in-office whitening offered by our Hockessin Office is a quick and easy way to effectively whiten your teeth. The Zoom! procedure generally takes 2 hours from start to finish. It begins with taking an impression of your teeth followed by isolating your gums so that the gel is only applied to the teeth. Then we apply special whitening gel that works together with the Zoom! Light to penetrate the teeth and break up the stains and discoloration. The gel remains on your teeth for approximately 15 minute intervals while the light is activated. After the first half hour the assistant will check the color. If satisfactory, then you are finished. If not, they will reapply the gel for 2 more intervals of 15 minutes, and check again. You will also have take home trays made and given to you for touch-ups at home. The results of Zoom! are immediate. Most patients notice that their teeth are up to seven shades whiter.
