Teeth Whitening in Millcreek, Salt Lake City, UT.
Teeth whitening, also known as dental bleaching is a procedure whereby unsightly discoloration and stains are removed from the teeth. The treatment falls under aesthetic/cosmetic dentistry, a branch that deals with enhancing the appearance of the smile.
How is Teeth Whitening achieved?
In-office dental whitening at our Millcreek Dentist Office involves the use of a bleaching agent placed in an even coat on the anterior/facial surfaces of the teeth. The bleaching agent is then activated with the help of a specialized blue light. The activated bleach breaks down stains making it easier for them to be removed from the tooth surface. This cycle is repeated two to three times till the desired results have been achieved. Many of our Salt Lake City area patients are so happy with the results of our teeth whitening service, they regularly return for “touch-up” sessions in which we are able to maintain their brilliant white smiles!
Why do I need Teeth Whitening?
There are a number of factors that can cause discoloration of the teeth. These include consumption of staining food and beverages, excessive smoking, improper oral hygiene, using certain medication such as tetracycline especially during fetal developmental stages, amalgam fillings, trauma, and congenital conditions such as dentinogenesis imperfecta. Teeth Whitening can be necessary even if you are doing nothing in particular to cause discoloration and you are maintaining your oral health. Teeth Whitening is a very common procedure in our Millcreek Dentist Office and we look forward to helping you get the bright smile you deserve!
After Teeth Whitening, how can I maintain my white teeth?
If you have habits causing the discoloration, such as smoking, drinking coffee or dark soda, or other dietary habits causing discoloration, you may consider stopping or limiting these habits. There are two ways in which whitening can be maintained beyond the cessation of habits; at dental clinics by qualified professionals, or at home using dental bleaching kits. The results depend upon the degree and nature of discoloration present on the teeth. Both methods have shown promising results if performed correctly. We are happy to schedule regular teeth whitening touch up sessions at our dental office in the Millcreek area of Salt Lake City Utah.
