Teeth Whitening in DeForest, WI
Are you yearning to have those white pearly teeth? Unfortunately, teeth staining can cause you to lose your smile and self-esteem. Teeth can discolor due to poor hygiene, disease, food, genetics, and medications.
At Madison Family Dental Associates, we believe that you have a right to have a smile you are confident with. That is why we have employed skillful dentists and have invested in state-of-the-art equipment to help brighten back your discolored teeth to life.
What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a non-invasive cosmetic dentistry process that strives to lighten and brighten the appearance of your teeth. The teeth whitening procedure uses hydrogen peroxide to help break down the teeth-staining molecules. When the molecules get smaller, they are detached from the teeth bringing back the brightening effect.
Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Our dentists will take an x-ray to help reveal the magnitude of work that needs to be done. The dentist will then embark on a dental cleaning exercise removing film that coats the enamel due to poor eating habits or other substances that have accumulated on the enamel.
The whitening process will then start and take between 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the severity of the stains. The gums will be covered, and the whitening agent will be applied to the teeth. If the teeth are severely discolored, our dentist will advise and guide you on continuing the whitening process at home.
How Long Does Professional Teeth Whitening Last?
There are different types of teeth whitening procedures and products. Most teeth whitening treatments will last from a few months to a year. However, the home whitening trays or professional processes last longer and offer the best results.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
The teeth whitening practice has been in existence for several years. It is a safe procedure for both over-the-counter teeth whitening agents and professional teeth whitening processes.
The most sensitive part of whitening teeth is accurately performing it according to our dentists' instructions and the guidelines on over-the-counter kits. You also have to be careful not to use the products excessively, as they can lead to gum or teeth irritation or permanent enamel erosion.
Most professional teeth whitening products contain 25% to 40% hydrogen peroxide and will remain on the teeth for close to 30 minutes. Teeth whitening treatment can be performed every six to 12 months.
Does Teeth Whitening Damage Your Teeth?
Teeth whitening will never damage your teeth. However, overexposure of the teeth to bleaching agents can lead to enamel erosion. Worn-out enamel will leave sensitive dentin exposed.
