WHAT CAUSES TOOTH DISCOLORATION?
There are many causes but the most common are aging and the consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea or tobacco.
During tooth formation, the consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may cause tooth discoloration.
WHO COULD BENEFIT FROM TOOTH WHITENING?
Just about anyone can benefit from tooth whitening.
However, treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others. With an oral exam, Dr. Lauvetz-Enmeier can determine if you are a candidate for this procedure. This exam will include a shade assessment.
IS TOOTH WHITENING SAFE?
Yes, research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is indeed safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available.
However, as with any tooth whitening product, Opalescence is not recommended for children under 13 years of age or for pregnant or lactating women.
HOW LONG BEFORE I SEE RESULTS?
Everyone responds differently to whitening treatments and some stains are easier to treat than others. Teeth that are yellow or brown are easier to whiten than teeth that are gray or blue. In addition, the teeth of younger patients typically whiten more quickly than older patients.
ARE THERE DIFFERENT SHADES OF WHITE TO CHOOSE FROM?
When whitening, keep in mind that your smile looks most natural when the color of your teeth matches the whites of your eyes. Some people want a Hollywood white smile, but that is not a natural color for teeth and few people can actually pull off that specific bright shade of white.
Consider consulting with your dentist to help determine the perfect shade for you.
HOW DOES THE OPALESCENCE TOOTH WHITENING SYSTEM WORK?
Working from the inside out, the active ingredients in Opalescence tooth whitening gels penetrate your teeth to break down the discolored molecules deep down within your teeth, removing stains and whitening your smile.
Opalescence gels contain potassium nitrate and fluoride which have been shown to strengthen enamel, decrease sensitivity, and help prevent cavities.
