Your teeth will naturally darken as you age. Certain foods, medications, and colored drinks can also contribute to the staining of your teeth and can give your teeth a yellowed or dull appearance. With professional teeth whitening, Dr. Gandhi and her team can erase years of staining and deliver the bright white smile you have always dreamed of.
This simple and painless procedure involves applying hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide gel or paste to the surfaces of your teeth. The bleaching agent works to break up stains into smaller pieces, making the color less concentrated, and resulting in brighter teeth.
Not all tooth discoloration will respond to teeth whitening in the same manner. Yellow teeth will bleach well, while brown and gray teeth may not show adequate whitening results. Whitening cannot lift staining off dental restorations and will not be effective if tooth discoloration is due to trauma or the use of medications.
Teeth whitening has been shown to be safe under the care and supervision of a dental professional. You may experience some temporary side effects such as tooth sensitivity which should subside quickly without any intervention.
Our professional teeth whitening procedure can brighten the appearance of your smile by as many as 5 - 10 shades in a single session. If you prefer the convenience of whitening your teeth at your home, we can provide you with a take-home kit that includes custom-made trays and whitening gel. Be sure to ask Dr. Gandhi which option is best for you to help you on your way to a brighter, whiter smile.
There are different options available to you for in-home whitening that you can purchase over the counter. Peroxide-based whitening gels or strips work to lift stains by being placed directly against the surfaces of your teeth. You can also find whitening toothpaste which contains a mild abrasive that can only remove some of the surface stains.
