Many who brush regularly and visit the dentist and take great dental hygiene, they may be able to spot signs of staining or discoloration with time. The visible tooth discoloration may be caused by the prolonged consumption of food and drinks like berries, coffee, red wine, and other foods which contain staining agents as well as the use of tobacco products. In many cases the tooth discoloration is caused by the natural aging process.
Professional teeth whitening treatments in Gulfport Mississippi utilize powerful whitening agents to bring out an even whiter, healthier and more refreshed appearance. With the highest-quality whiteners, these advanced methods can be customized to make your teeth whiter by several shades, often more effectively and in shorter time than other options offered over-the-counter. In the end, the most professional teeth whitening options can have an effect on overall aesthetics of your smile, and can produce lasting results for many people.
Although some over-the-counter whitening products are effective for some people, professional-grade teeth whitening generally creates far superior results for the vast majority of patients. There are several reasons for this, the most important being that Gulfport Mississippi professional teeth whitening solutions include whitening agents that are much more effective than the ones that is found in the majority of commercial teeth whitening kits available at the local pharmacy. Professionally-made whitening ingredients are capable of penetrating more deeply into the enamel, removing discoloration and stains that’ve been developing for many years.
A significant difference between professional teeth whitening and over-the-counter options is the amount of time required to achieve noticeable outcomes. A single treatment in-office typically yields immediately visible effects while over-the counter solutions typically require many weeks of patient regular use to produce even a small amount of whitening.
In mind, one of the most important differences between these options is the fact that professional teeth whitening treatments are developed and monitored through one among our cosmetic dentists. Patients are able to be in charge of their treatment by a highly experienced expert, which will dramatically increase the likelihood that outcomes will be successful and that the procedure is carried out safely.
In addition to the many over-the counter alternatives, we are in an age where the claims of “natural” solutions such as charcoal teeth whitening and coconut oil teeth whitening are prevalent–regimens that are, as per the American Dental Association, have no evidence to suggest they are safe or effective. In reality, many of these gimmicky teeth whitening products are extremely abrasive to the tooth structure. They function more so by removing the layer of enamel and exposing the white layer underneath. At some point, you will run out of enamel, and this can spell big trouble down the road. The teeth whitening treatments, supervised by our skilled dental professionals, are the best method of ensuring optimal results and a healthier whiter smile.
Sensitivity to teeth during and after an teeth whitening treatment in Gulfport Mississippi is not uncommon. While this effect should fade fairly quickly, we would like to ensure that our patients feel as comfortable as they can during the procedure and the following hours. With just a few actions, the sensitivity of teeth and any potential discomfort associated with it can be minimized.
If you have teeth that are already susceptible to sensitivity, let our dentists know before your treatment begins. In such cases we might be able to modify the dosage of whitening solutions to reduce any uncomfortable effects. It is also recommended to utilize a soft-bristled tooth brush and a toothpaste such as Sensodyne(r) or another product designed for individuals who suffer from sensitive teeth. Regular rinses using the fluoride-based mouthwash can be helpful, and the temporary avoidance of consuming products that are hot or cold or with high levels of acidity is a good idea.
Additionally, it is important to note that the teeth can be more sensitive if they are whitened frequently, whether that is achieved by in-office or at-home treatments. Keep this in mind, some individuals who regularly undergo whitening procedures and have significant levels of tooth sensitivity could be advised to limit the frequency of whitening treatments.
The durability in teeth whitening Gulfport Mississippi results is dependent on a variety of variables, such as lifestyle, genetics, diet, and the use of specific drugs. For many individuals these effects can last for lengthy periods of time. If you see that the results of the whitening process are beginning to diminish then you can perform a “touch-up” treatment can be done to keep the result for longer. We recommend the use of straws when drinking certain drinks to reduce staining. Also, we recommend regular visits to the hygienist to minimize the development of plaque buildup, which could cause staining.
