Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental service that Dennis J Coleman DDS – Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, serving Cornelius, Davison, or Huntersville areas, provides in-office or through a take home kit. Results vary, but most patients experience significant improvement that lasts up to a year. Our teeth whitening patients agree that a whiter smile boosts self confidence. It also takes years of wear and stains away to reveal a brighter smile.
Teeth whitening and teeth bleaching describe two different things.
- Teeth whitener can refer to any product used to remove stains from tooth enamel: toothpaste, DIY strips, and some mouthwashes are safe and affordable and can brighten teeth with continued, regular use. The extent of whitening varies, and it takes dedicated, regular use to see results. Whitening products that do not contain bleach can usually make teeth two to four shades lighter. These are a good choice for people with sensitive teeth and gums that can react to products containing harsher whitening chemicals. Dennis J Coleman DDS – Family & Cosmetic Dentistry counsels pregnant or nursing mothers to choose the non-bleach whitening products.
- Bleaching refers to a tooth whitening product that contains a form of bleach, either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, in varying concentrations. For best results, teeth bleaching should be done in-office by your dentist. Bleaching can generally achieve more noticeable results, sometimes up to seven shades lighter. An experienced dentist can supervise your care and lighten stains on your teeth.
