Achieve Your Brightest Smile With Dental Bleaching
Hydrogen peroxide compounds have been safely used for many years to whiten and brighten natural teeth. It was usually applied by dentists and used with heat and/or light to stimulate its bleaching action. In recent years, new techniques have allowed patients to apply peroxide to their natural teeth at home using custom-fitted trays, which is what we offer at Meng Dentistry. Although bleaching compounds can be purchased in pharmacies or grocery stores, the fastest and most predictable bleaching compounds can only be obtained from dentists because treatment requires supervision by trained dental professionals. Using prescription peroxide compounds in professionally-fitted bleaching trays is the safest, most effective, and most comfortable method of achieving whiter teeth.
You may have seen laser lights promoted as an instant process for whitening teeth. These techniques produce heat, and though research is inconclusive as to possible harm to teeth, hypersensitivity is a commonly reported side effect. At Meng Dentistry, we don’t prescribe laser techniques due to the added costs, safety concerns, and the continued need for conventional home applications. Economically, a professionally made tray system is equivalent to approximately a years course of an over the counter bleach and hence much less costly long term.
The results of dental bleaching vary from patient to patient, depending upon the extent of discoloration present, and what caused it. When you visit our clinic, we will first perform a thorough evaluation so you know what to expect from the treatment. You can keep your teeth looking bright and white for a long time if you maintain proper oral hygiene, refrain from smoking and consuming excessive amounts of coffee, alcohol, tea, wine and sports drinks.
Teeth whitening or bleaching is a non-invasive procedure which does not usually hurt. However, some patients do have extra sensitive teeth and for this purpose, we may recommend a professional fluoride treatment or at-home product for desensitization.
