Your teeth are one of the first things identified as part of your appearance, so it is beneficial to have a healthy, younger, and whiter looking smile.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular treatment in the United States. Five years ago, Americans spent over $11 billion on teeth whitening treatment, which included over $1.4 billion spent on at-home whitening products. With teeth whitening, you have two options, either done by a professional in a dental office or in your home. Both options use bleaching agents. The significant difference is the at home options contain from 3% to 20% peroxide, either carbamide or hydrogen peroxides. The professional treatments offered at Missouri River Dental legally contain considerably more, from 15% to 43% peroxide. This results in a quicker completion.

 

You may state that your primary dental issue is to have whiter teeth. Your teeth are one of the first things identified as part of your appearance, so it is beneficial to have a healthy, younger, and whiter looking smile.

A few factors can cause your teeth to lose their healthy, white appearance and develop a duller finish. Some foods will stain the enamel, which is the outside protective layer of the tooth. Plaque buildup on your teeth will also make them look yellow. This type of discoloration can be easily treated with consistent cleaning and whitening treatments. Sometimes teeth can look yellow because the hard outside enamel has thinned, revealing the darker dentin underneath. The dentin is a yellow, bony tissue that lies directly under the enamel.

Teeth Whitening for Health Reasons

Teeth whitening is not always done just for cosmetic and aesthetic reasons. You might wish to have your teeth whitened to reduce the unfortunate discoloration resulting from a prescribed medication. Prescription medications such as Tetracycline will discolor your teeth if it was prescribed at a younger age. Another health-related reason you may wish to have your teeth whitened is to reduce the look of Fluorosis, which is from too much Fluoride treatment during the development of your teeth. This condition leaves large yellow lines on your teeth that can be eliminated with teeth whitening.  What is superb about teeth whitening is that it is a non-invasive and easy treatment that can be done quickly and efficiently at Missouri River Dental.

 

If you have stained or discolored teeth you could feel embarrassed by their appearance. Consulting with us can be a huge turn around event for you by restoring the perceived value in your smile with white, healthy teeth.

Professional Teeth Whitening versus At Home Whitening

Choosing to work with Missouri River Dental to whiten your teeth is the ideal approach. While retail teeth whitening packages will indeed deliver some improvements, having our team perform your teeth whitening treatment is the most efficient way to quickly achieve your desirable results. If teeth whitened at-home is imperative for you, Missouri River Dental can offer an at-home component or kit that you can use under our supervision. Working with us for your teeth whitening can also provide a level of comfort and security if you are concerned with tooth sensitivity or any side effects. You might experience sensitive teeth, gums, and a tingling in your mouth with a teeth whitening treatment.

The Teeth Whitening Procedure

Your teeth whitening treatment will always begin with a diligent, professional cleaning of your teeth. We next make an impression of your teeth so we can develop custom trays that fit your arches perfectly. The primary benefit of having a teeth whitening treatment performed by us versus doing it at home is that the concentration of the bleaching ingredient is considerably higher than any retail products you can purchase.

 

Using these custom, personalized trays allows for the best possible results. The retail teeth whitening systems usually have generic, one-size-fits-all trays, which results in less impressive results.

 

If you have any porcelain crowns, it might be necessary to replace them if your newly whitened teeth no longer match the shade of the crown. We will discuss factors like these before your treatment begins. It is best to be totally informed so you can make comfortable decisions about your oral health. Teeth whitening is not about cosmetics, it can also improve your oral health like other dental procedures.

Proper Aftercare

Following your teeth whitening treatment at Missouri River Dental, you could experience some tooth sensitivity. We will advise you to reduce and monitor your intake of coffee, tea, colas, red wine, and citrus, berries, and tomatoes for a few days while the teeth whitening cures. It is also in your best interests to reduce the consumption of these beverages and foods in your future because they will wear away the enamel quicker, which will reduce the positive results of any future teeth whitening treatments and increase the necessity for other dental treatments.

 

Daily brushing and flossing must be done properly and continued, and your regular six-month exams and checkups are crucial to maintain the success of your teeth whitening procedure and to apply any touch-ups. If you have any questions about teeth whitening, simply call for a consultation. Teeth whitening is quick and easy and will provide you with an immediate boost in your self-esteem.
