We live in a world dominated by aesthetics, and nothing is more beautiful or ornamental than a bright smile. However, not everyone is gifted with perfectly aligned white teeth. Some may have fluorosis or other dental ailments that discolor teeth. Diet and habits such as smoking can also lead to teeth discolorations. Discolored teeth can make you apprehensive of your smile and affects your social, personal, and professional life. However, at Dental Spa of Orange we believe that nothing should come between you and a heartfelt smile. Therefore, to align with our vision, we introduce to you our state-of-the-art teeth bleaching treatments near you.
What is teeth bleaching?
Teeth bleaching, also known as teeth whitening, is a common dental cosmetic procedure at Orange. These treatments aim to lighten the color of your teeth's enamel (the outer covering of the teeth) with the help of chemical agents. The most commonly used active agents for teeth whitening are hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide.
What is the procedure for teeth whitening?
During your initial consultation at Dental Spa of Orange, our dentist will examine and discuss with you various teeth whitening options and how you can safely achieve a healthy and bright smile.
It is important to remember that teeth whitening may take more than a single setting. Some people may require longer than others to see their desired results. It is also essential to remember that overdoing is not a good idea. Some people have naturally whitish yellow teeth, and overdoing teeth whitening may lead to harm, and we will never suggest that to our valued patients.
After professional teeth cleaning, a whitening gel is applied to the teeth and allowed to sit for some time. The gel is then wiped and washed. This procedure is repeated at appropriate intervals for the best results. In some cases, we may also take an impression to make a custom tray for you. The whitening gel is then loaded on the tray, and the tray is fitted over the teeth for the gel to work for the required time.
In some cases, we may also advise Zoom! teeth whitening which utilizes UV light. After the application of the whitening gel, the teeth are exposed to UV light which allows the gel to penetrate the tooth better. This offer faster results as well. You can see up to eight shades lighter teeth in the first visit itself.
Is teeth whitening safe?
Teeth bleaching is a safe procedure when done by professional cosmetic dentists in Orange. However, we strictly advise our patients to avoid DIY teeth whitening as it is easy to overdo and does more harm than good. Always opt for professional and safe teeth whitening for a healthy and glowing smile.
