What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening encompasses several kinds of dental procedures that make your teeth whiter. Often over time and with age, your teeth may yellow or become discolored due to diet, dental hygiene, or general health. To combat this yellowing, teeth whitening restores the white even color to your teeth through several different means. Tooth whitening is ideal for people who do not have any severe dental issues such as periodontal disease or bone diseases. A common procedure that Dr. Spencer offers is an in office whitening procedure known as chairside bleaching.
How do I get my teeth whitened by Dr. Weston Spencer?
In order to clean and whiten your teeth best, Dr. Spencer will examine your teeth and mouth to determine the severity of the discoloration and what treatment may be the most effective. This office consultation allows him to determine what level of whitening is needed and what treatment option is best for your individual needs.
Should I opt for in-office whitening?
In-office teeth whitening is a quick procedure that Dr. Spencer can provide from his office. You do not need to go and have any special cosmetic surgery for this kind of whitening. During this whitening, he will use a special whitening gel and light that will make your teeth whiten. He will administer the gel directly to your teeth and then shine the light on your teeth for thirty to sixty minutes so that the gel activates and whitens your teeth. Once done, you should notice a difference. The degree of your final results will depend on the severity of discoloration or yellowing that you had prior to treatment. Dr. Spencer will likely recommend that you have the procedure done several times for maximum effect.
How do I care for my teeth after a whitening procedure?
Teeth whitening procedures are not procedures that last for many years. Over time the teeth can become slightly discolored once more. To ensure that your results last the longest, Dr. Spencer recommends that you refrain from eating deeply staining foods such as wines, coffee, and certain teas. He also recommends that you continue with proper and daily dental hygiene. By following his guideline for care, your new smile should last over a year before they begin to show discoloration.
