Teeth whitening continues to grow in popularity among dental patients around the world. With so many products and procedures to choose from, it’s important to ask: Will teeth whitening damage my teeth? And then, to listen to the experts.
Teeth whitening products contain bleaching agents such as hydrogen peroxide. Seeing as every product differs, it’s important to discuss your whitening options with a professional. If products are used incorrectly or too often, they can harm your teeth. Going to a practice like Morrin Dental, however, will not only assure you a brighter smile, but a healthy one.
At Morrin Dental, there are two main options for teeth whitening. Both may lend to slight sensitivity for a temporary amount of time, however neither will harm your teeth or body when used correctly.
ZOOM In-office Teeth Whitening is a procedure lasting just 90 minutes. Using a syringe, a 25% Hydrogen Peroxide gel solution is applied to your teeth and then light-activated. Multiple precautions are taken for your safety. You can read them all here.
DayWhite take home teeth whitening is another option. This tray system allows you to whiten your teeth at home, on your own time schedule. It requires roughly one hour each day, for 2 weeks. If you have very sensitive teeth, this is a great option.
