Stained and discolored teeth are common issues for many patients. Teeth whitening is the process of enhancing your natural tooth color, to achieve a brighter smile. If your teeth are not as bright, it could be due to various reasons. Some of the common reasons for discoloration include drinking coffee, tea or wine, eating foods that contain food coloring, smoking, or the natural aging process. Fortunately, you do not have to live with discolored teeth. When it comes to teeth whitening, Miami residents have numerous options to choose from, however, kliniko offers the safest and most effective whitening treatments.
Over-the-Counter Whitening Products
You probably see teeth whitening advertisements online and on the television everyday. They usually advertise that you can achieve whiter teeth without visiting the dentist. To an extent, this may be accurate. Over-the-counter whitening products can produce some improvements. Nonetheless, these improvements are rarely as dramatic as the advertisements describe, and it can take up to several weeks to achieve minimal results.These whitening products may produce visible results at the end of the process, however, you may notice that some of the darkest and most stubborn stains on your teeth might still remain. In fact, they may appear to be more noticeable because of the comparative whiteness of your other teeth.
Customized Results with Professional Teeth Whitening
When you visit a cosmetic dentist for a whitening procedure, the results will be much more desirable. In fact, many whitening procedures can be completed within about an hour. This means that you do not have to spend weeks using trays filled with whitening solution at home. Whitening at a dental office yields more beneficial results in comparison to over-the-counter products due to a higher concentrated solution. This guarantees the best results in a controlled procedure. One hour is all it takes, and you instantly have the brighter and whiter smile.
Professional whitening is primarily recommended due to being faster and more efficient.This is mainly because of the accessibility to professional whitening products that dentists have. These formulas are simply much stronger than what is available in over-the-counter products. When these stronger formulas are applied by a professional, they cannot harm you, and you instantly achieve a whiter smile.
The Whitening Process
Of course, we start the process with a thorough exam of your mouth to assess your overall dental health. If you have gum disease, a cavity, or any other oral health issue, then it is wise to resolve these problems before proceeding with the whitening process. Addressing these issues first, will reduce sensitivity or discomfort during the whitening process.
