Does Teeth Whitening Work?
There are plenty of different chemical teeth whitening products out there, but they all use the same active ingredients to whiten your smile and reverse stains. Peroxides, such as hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide, are chemical compounds with unique, volatile oxygen molecules.
When these molecules contact a stain on your teeth, they react by splitting apart the molecular bond that holds the stains onto your enamel. By doing so, they “bleach” the stain away, restoring the natural brightness of your tooth.
Teeth whitening only works on extrinsic stains on the outside of your teeth, however. It cannot treat intrinsic stains that are below the surface of your tooth. These stains, which can sometimes be caused by certain medications, must be treated with another cosmetic dentistry treatment like a dental crown, dental veneer, or dental bonding.
The Take-Home Whitening Process
The process of take-home whitening lets you get professional-grade results in your own home, and you’ll only have to spend a few minutes in the dentist’s chair. First, you’ll come in for a cosmetic consultation with Dr. Justin Yun to ensure you’re a good candidate for teeth whitening.
If you’re approved, Dr. Yun will use dental putty to create dental impressions of your teeth. These will be sent to a dental lab, where a set of custom-made, reusable whitening trays will be made for your teeth.
You’ll come back to our office to pick up your trays once they arrive, and Dr. Justin Yun will give you a set of whitening products, and instructions for their use. Then, you’ll simply whiten your teeth as directed by Dr. Yun, usually for about an hour per day for several weeks. At the end of your treatment, you’ll have a bright, brilliant smile that’s free of stains, yellowing and discoloration.
Of Professional Take-Home Teeth Whitening
Why should you whiten your teeth at Yunbelievable Smiles? First, take-home whitening provides more subtle results than in-office whitening. Your smile will brighten more gradually, which some patients prefer, as it will be less obvious that they have had their teeth whitened.
It’s also more convenient to whiten your teeth at home. You can whiten your teeth on your own schedule. And compared to DIY whitening with OTC (over-the-counter) kits, professional at-home whitening is a lot safer and more effective, and will provide better overall results.
Lastly, and most importantly, professional whitening can make you feel great about your smile once again. If you have stained or discolored teeth, you may be self-conscious smiling, laughing, or even eating among others. But with a bright new smile from Dr. Yun, you can feel confident about your appearance once again.
