Whitening and brightening your smile

December 9, 2018

If you want to obtain a bright and white smile, teeth whitening may be just what you are looking for. Not only is teeth whitening effect, but it can also considerably change your smile and improve your self-esteem.

The ingredient that actually bleaches (whitens) enamel is called peroxide and is present in most teeth whitening products.

The strength of the whitening treatment typically depends on the strength of the peroxide contained in the whitening product. The current percentages of peroxide in teeth whitening products vary between 10% and 25%.

At Sharp Dentistry and Associates we currently use Zoom! ® System, in which we obtain excellent results.

Your dentist is the professional to determine whether your teeth and gums are healthy enough to go through a whitening process, and if so, a teeth whitening method can be chosen.

Teeth Whitening Options:

Teeth whitening kits from the dentist produce faster and more effective results because they contain a stronger peroxide-bleaching agent than whitening strips purchased over the counter. Another benefit of trays and gels from the dentist is that the trays are custom made and fit your teeth exactly. Over-the-counter trays are generic sized and could allow the bleaching agent to come into contact with your gums, usually causing irritation.
