You are most likely to be advised to frequently brush your teeth with a toothpaste that has a whitening effect when looking for ways to whiten your discolored teeth. Most of your daily habits like your food choice, preferred beverages, and smoking will all conspire to stain your teeth gradually. The best part is, the discoloring can be reversed, thanks to teeth whitening options available. Expert dentists who specialize in teeth whitening in Temecula will help you feel less conscious when you smile with their modern dentistry techniques. Though maintaining snow-white teeth in your lifetime could be impossible, affording a brilliant smile is possible. 

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is non-medical dentistry that aims at clearing discolorations and stains on your teeth surface. As you age, your enamel develops fissures and cracks, revealing your dentin (the tooth’s inner part). As your enamel thins and wears off, the dentin, which is yellow, gets exposed, making it visible. However, aging is not the only contributing factor in teeth discoloration. Other factors include:

  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Smoking
  • Tobacco chewing
  • Over drinking staining beverages like wine, soda, and coffee

How many types of whitening treatments there?

There are various treatment options to whiten your stained or discolored teeth. The options include porcelain veneers, bleaching, and dental strips. However, it is impossible to get your teeth whitened in old age since bleaching does not affect dentin. At Sunshine Dental Inc., the following treatment processes are available:

Philips Zoom

During the Philips zoom treatment, your dentist will apply a protective covering on your gums before carefully painting hydrogen peroxide gel on your teeth surface. The gel then triggers a chemical reaction that forces the stains on your teeth to loosen. After approximately half an hour of soaking your teeth surface, your dentist will request you to wear safety goggles before aiming the Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed Whitening LED accelerator at your teeth. The applied LED technology speeds up the treatment resulting in a sparkling set of picture-perfect teeth.

Though results vary depending on the stain’s extent, Philips Zoom is the most requested whitening option by the facility’s dental patients. The process takes approximately 90minutes in your dentist’s office.

Take-Home Whitening Trays

This is an option if you do not want to spend your time at your dentist's whitening treatment office. A professional dentist only offers tray bleaching prescriptions. After you take the trays that fit your teeth' unique contours, fill them with the whitening peroxide gel. After you apply the gel on the trays, slide them over your teeth. Though the trays work similar to the over-the-counter whitening stripes, the trays are more effective since they will whiten all your teeth with noticeable long-lasting results.

Teeth discoloration should not prevent you from showing off your smile when it can be reserved. Depending on the whitening treatment option, you will choose the effect, it could either be instant or gradual. For more inquiries on tooth whitening, you can call the dental experts or use the facility's online tool to make an appointment.
