Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to improve your smile. It is quick, cost-effective, and non-invasive. Though some Sugar House Dentistry patients experience short-term sensitivity, it is usually painless, too.
If you have looked into teeth whitening systems, you probably already know the basics. The one thing they have in common is that they use a solution containing peroxide to remove the stains that have settled in the microscopic cracks in your tooth enamel.
There are many teeth bleaching products available at the grocery store, and it seems like new ones appear every day. Whitening strips and pens may whiten your teeth a few shades, but the peroxide concentration is much lower than what is used at The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City.
We recommend that you use extreme caution when considering a take-home tooth whitener. If the portion of your teeth below the gum line exposed to the whitener, it may react differently to the visible portion of the tooth.
Moreover, the peroxide solution does not noticeably whiten crowns and veneers. If you use a DIY tooth whitener on teeth with extensive porcelain restorations, you may end up with a two- or three-tone smile.
If your teeth have yellowed over time, or have become stained, you can brighten your smile with professional teeth whitening from The Sugar House Dentist. We offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry services. Visit our smile gallery to see what we can do.
