At Terry Soule, DDS, we offer custom trays and professional strength whitening gel for you to take home and to whiten your teeth from the comfort of your own home. Cosmetic dentist in Orange City, Dr. Soule, would like to share with you some information regarding this commonly used cosmetic dental treatment.
Who should use professional teeth whitening?
Anyone with permanent teeth, teens or adults, who has yellow or dingy-looking teeth may benefit from professional teeth whitening in DeBary. While teeth whitening is not recommended for children, teenagers and adults are generally good candidates. However, speak with Dr. Soule during your consultation to determine if teeth whitening is for you.
Why are my teeth discolored?
Teeth become discolored from a variety of factors. The foods and beverages that we consume causes teeth to become yellow in color. Also, use of tobacco (both cigarettes or chewing tobacco) causes teeth to become yellow faster than those who do not use tobacco products. Age is another reason teeth become discolored, as well as plaque and tartar buildup. This buildup occurs in everyone, even avid brushes, and flossers. Routine professional dental cleanings can help minimize teeth staining, but may not lead to the level of white that you desire. In some cases, certain medications or preexisting medical conditions may cause teeth to become more susceptible to staining.
How do professional teeth whitening treatments work?
At Terry Soule, DDS, our professional strength whitening gel is provided to you along with customized teeth whitening trays. This way, you can whiten your teeth at home at a time most convenient for you.
To begin, we take impressions of your teeth so that we can use them to make molds that are then used to fabricate your clear trays. These trays are custom to fit over your teeth, only allowing just enough space to hold the whitening gel against your teeth. We will provide you with specific step-by-step instructions on how to use your whitening gel, and how often you should whiten your teeth.
Are professional teeth whitening treatments better than the store-bought varieties?
Yes! Our teeth whitening gel is a professional strength, which means it is stronger than any brand of whitening product you can purchase in stores. It is also safer than store-bought varieties since the custom trays hold the gel precisely in place, reducing the chance of the gel being ingested. With popular whitening strips, the strips do not remain in place well, and excess gel oozes onto the gums and may be easily ingestible, which is not advised. Therefore, professional teeth whitening is much safer, and will provide you with better, longer lasting results!
