What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is one of the most straightforward procedures to attain clean white teeth in a short period. People get it done regularly to feel great about their smiles. As people age, their teeth go through wear and tear and start to lose their sheen and become discolored.
A combination of their age and food habits like consuming coffee, wine, tea, curries, and dark sauces are significant culprits behind teeth discoloration. Fortunately, this pressing problem has an easy solution.
How Teeth Whitening Happens at Louie Family Dentistry
Teeth whitening is a simple procedure that begins when you are comfortably seated on the dental chair. Our dentist begins the system by applying a rubber dam on the gums to prevent oral fluids from hindering the process.
Next, our dentist will apply concentrated hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide gel onto your teeth and use a laser light to activate it. The laser light oxidizes the gel and permeates your tooth enamel to make the stains colorless.
Depending on the result you’re looking to achieve, our dentist will continue the process 3 to 4 times and let it rest for 20 minutes to allow the gel to whiten your stains.
After the fourth try, our dentist will rinse off your mouth to apply fluoride to your teeth. Fluoride remineralizes your teeth and helps them ward off bacteria, and protects you from tooth decay.
