Teeth Whitening Methods at Sweet Water Dentistry in Fairhope AL
Do you wish that your teeth would be whiter? Do you want to whiten your teeth for a special event? Graduation, Wedding, Job interview, etc. Whitening your teeth is simple and easy! Teeth whitening is a process that removes stains and turns yellow teeth back to being white. It is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because of how it can improve your overall look. The outer layer of a tooth is the enamel. The natural color of teeth is created by the scattering and reflection of light from the enamel along with the color of dentin beneath it. We have several different whitening options at Sweet Water Dentistry.
The first is called KOR. This is the best type of whitening available. If you choose this option, you will need to come to our office in Fairhope, AL to get fitted for custom tooth whitening trays. You must use these whitening trays for two weeks. After this time, you will come to our office once again. You will then get an additional whitening process done by your dental hygienist.
The second option that we offer for whitening is called Venus. This process also requires that you get fitted with mouth trays. You take these trays home and complete the process of whitening your teeth at home.
A third whitening option we have is Opalescence Go. The process gives you 10 pre-loaded whitening trays. You simply wear each for 15 minutes a day to get the results you are after.
There are several common reasons that people get stained or yellow teeth. These include: Tobacco Use, Drinking dark liquids like coffee, cola, tea or red wine and just plain failure to take care of your teeth. Other reasons can include aging. This makes teeth dull as the dentin becomes darker and the enamel thinner.
Tooth whitener works well on surface stains, but it does not work on porcelain crowns or veneers. Also, whitening your teeth may cause some sensitivity, but should go away.
