Does Teeth Whitening Really Work?

Brightening your smile is as simple as visiting a Cosmetic Dentist for a Teeth Whitening Treatment in Glendale. While there might be some side effects from teeth whitening but, most of the whitening treatment is safe to use as long as you follow the product direction.

What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening are an effective way of lightening the natural color of your teeth without removing the tooth surface. It's the most popular cosmetic dental procedure because it improves the look of your teeth and smile.

Do Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth color changes with age, the interior part of the teeth known as the dentin, yellows, and the enamel layer get thin from a lifetime of brushing. Eventually, lifestyle choices such as drinking coffee, red wine and medication can further discolor the teeth. Teeth Whitening in Glendale works in two ways. Firstly, it removes surface stains from the enamel. Secondly, it changes the color of the dentin.

Our Cosmetic Dentist in Glendale uses whitening products that include bleaches such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These bleaches break stains into smaller pieces that make the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter.

How Does Teeth Whitening Treatment Works?

Our In-Office Teeth Whitening in Glendale uses expensive equipment to prepare and finish the procedure. There are several standard steps to perform a Teeth Whitening treatment.

  1. Before starting, our cosmetic dentist will make a record of the current shade of your teeth. Your teeth are then polished, with pumice, a grainy material that used to remove any plaque on the tooth surface.
  2. Your mouth will be isolated with gauze to keep your teeth dry. A retractor is required to keep your cheeks, lips, and tongue away from the whitening solution.
  3. A barrier would also be placed along the gumline to further protect from exposure to the solution.
  4. Next, as discussed above, a whitening solution such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide is coated on the front surface of the teeth.
  5. Laser light is required to activate the peroxide material. Once applied, the solution will be on the teeth for 30 to 60 minutes.
  6. Once your teeth have reached the optimum shade, your teeth will be cleaned, and a fluoride material is needed to ease any tooth sensitivity.

Upon completion of Teeth Whitening Treatment in Glendale, our dentist advises avoiding foods or beverages with a high level of pigment for at least 24 hours.
