Teeth whitening is a simple procedure. Teeth whitening products contain one of two tooth bleaches (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide). These bleaches will break the stains into smaller pieces, which will make the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter. You may claim that your number one dental concern is to have whiter teeth. After all, your teeth are one of the first things that people notice about your appearance, so it is important to have a healthy, and whiter looking smile. Our teeth are one of our most noticeable features. They are vital when it comes to eating, but they are just as important in helping us to communicate with others. Our smile can be an appealing attribute.

The Simple Benefits of Teeth Whitening
If you suffer from damaged, discolored, or missing teeth you may feel embarrassed by their appearance, often becoming less social to avoid judgment or steer clear of questions about your oral health. In these cases, consulting with Brechon Dental can be one of the most life-changing procedures for you in restoring the beauty of your teeth and the confidence in your smiles.
Tooth whitening is not only completed for cosmetic reasons. You may opt for tooth whitening to reduce the look of discoloration related to medication. Prescription medications such as Tetracycline can discolor teeth if it was prescribed at a young age when your adult teeth were still developing. Other reasons you may opt for tooth whitening include reducing the look of Fluorosis, which is when you had too much Fluoride treatment as your teeth were developing. This condition leaves large white or yellow lines on teeth that can be reduced by tooth whitening. What is excellent about tooth whitening is that it is a non-invasive treatment that can be done quickly and efficiently in our office.
Long Lasting Aesthetics
Unfortunately, tooth whitening is not a permanent solution. You will need to undergo regular teeth whitening sessions to maintain the look and results of your treatments. If you continue to engage in specific activities after having your teeth whitened, they are more likely to need additional whitening treatments, more often. Events that will increase the need for further teeth whitening treatments include smoking, drinking coffee or tea, as well as enjoying red wine. If you eat highly concentrated citrus or heavily colored foods, especially darker berries, you may also see the need to whiten more often.

The Teeth Whitening Process
We begin with a proper cleaning of your teeth. Then we make an impression of your teeth so we can make a personalized tray that fit your teeth perfectly. The gel is added to the trays and they sit on your teeth for the suggested amount of time. That is all there is too it. The major benefit of having teeth whitening performed at Brechon Dental is not only the custom tray but also the higher concentration of the bleaching material used.
Depending on how much treatment is needed to achieve the desired level of whiteness, you may experience sensitivity, which should not happen often if prepared ahead of time with other professionally prescribed adjuncts. If the problem persists, be sure to tell us, but using over-the-counter tooth-sensitivity toothpaste, Fluoride varnish, or a calcium-phosphate gel, MI paste, can also help to alleviate the discomfort brought on by sensitivity.
Treatment at Home versus Brechon Dental
Working with us to whiten your teeth is the ideal approach. While over-the-counter tooth whitening solutions can provide improvements in the levels of discoloration or stains that appear on teeth, having Brechon Dental perform teeth whitening treatment is the most efficient way to achieve the results you want. If having teeth whitened at home is essential to you, we can now offer an at-home component or kit that can be purchased and used under our supervision. Sometimes, in-office treatment is coupled with at-home treatment to ensure a long-lasting result. Working with us to have teeth whitening also provides a great deal of comfort to patients who might be concerned with tooth sensitivity or side effects.
Following a teeth whitening treatment at Brechon Dental, you may experience tooth sensitivity. We will recommend that you reduce your intake of coffee, tea, red wine, and citrus, tomatoes, and berries for a few days while the teeth whitening sets in. It is suggested to reduce the consumption of these beverages and foods anyway because they also wear away the enamel, which can reduce the results of the teeth whitening treatment and increase the need for additional treatments more frequently.
Proper brushing and flossing must always be continued, and consistent dental exams are essential to maintaining the success of the teeth whitening procedure and to perform touch-ups, as necessary. If you have questions about whether teeth whitening is for you, you simply ask Brechon Dental for a consultation. Teeth whitening is quick and easy and provides you with a boost in their self-esteem.
