Professional teeth whitening is one of the safest, most effective, and most economical ways to brighten your smile. Our teeth go through a lot each and every day. They are exposed to so many different kinds of food and drink that can stain teeth, it’s no wonder they slowly lose their brightness. Even teeth that are perfectly healthy can need whitening treatments. Our teeth will rarely stay white for as long as we’d like, and if you want them to be as appealing as they can be, contact us for teeth whitening!
The dentist at Cherry Blossom Family Dentistry know how important teeth whitening can be for your confidence and smile. We have the tools in our office that can safely brighten your teeth up to eight shades lighter in about one hour! We take exquisite care to protect your gums and soft tissues and keep the sensitivity of the whitening treatment to a minimum. If you are looking for a way to counteract the stains from coffee, tea, berries, candy, red wine, and other tooth-staining foods, contact Cherry Blossom Family Dentistry today!
How does teeth whitening work?
Teeth whitening can be divided into bleaching procedures and non-bleaching procedures. With the former, bleach is used to remove both surface and deep stains, changing the actual color of your teeth. When you get professional teeth whitening at Cherry Blossom Family Dentistry, it’s a bleaching procedure. Non-bleaching procedures remove only surface stains through a physical or chemical action—for example, whitening toothpastes that are mildly abrasive.
Can whitening your teeth damage them?
Many people are concerned that whitening will damage their teeth by somehow harming their enamel, but this is not the case. When overseen by an experienced dental professional, teeth whitening is a safe procedure. The potential danger lies in trying home remedies that claim to work but end up doing more bad than good, and with overdoing it with over-the-counter products. It’s best to speak with a dentist before whitening your teeth so they can give you their recommendations based on your oral health and smile goals.
Does teeth whitening hurt?
Teeth whitening should not hurt. You may experience some temporary tooth sensitivity after your procedure, but this goes away after a couple of days. Another benefit of getting your teeth professionally whitened is that a knowledgeable team will be able to supervise your procedure and minimize any potential sensitivity.
Is teeth whitening bad for your gums?
Teeth whitening can cause temporary gum irritation, but it won’t leave any permanent damage. When you get in-office teeth whitening, your dentist will take measures to protect your gums from the bleach to help you avoid irritation.
