Teeth Whitening With Opalescence
Patients who suffer from stained teeth due to enjoying delicious but staining foods, or patients who have staining because of medicine they take, can all benefit from professional teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is a simple cosmetic dentistry option that can make a smile beautiful. At Authentic Smiles, we can provide our patients with Opalescence®, a system that not only whitens teeth, but strengthens the enamel. We also provide porcelain veneers and dental crowns for patients who do not respond to teeth whitening treatments. No matter how deep your stains are, we will find a cosmetic dentistry solution for you.
What Causes Teeth Staining and Yellowed Teeth?
At Authentic Smiles in Austin, TX, we can provide our patients with the Opalescence take home kit. This is a great option for patients who would rather whiten in the comfort of their home rather than spend a few hours in their dentist’s chair. With the take home kit, you will receive the same great benefits of professional whitening, but in the convenience of your home. The take home kit can be used either during the night or during the day.
The kit comes complete with the whitening gel, and trays. The whitening gel contains PF (potassium nitrate and fluoride) which prevents the enamel from facing damage during the treatment. As a result, it also makes the enamel stronger, preventing you from cavities. Once you have filled the trays with the whitening gel, you will leave the tray in your mouth for the amount of time recommended for that strength of whitening. After the allotted time, you will need to thoroughly rinse your mouth and clean the tray. Results will be noticeable after about a week.
There are many benefits of teeth whitening. The number one being, an increase in confidence. There is no feeling like wanting to show off your vibrant smile. Another benefit is that with Opalescence, your enamel will be strengthened, resulting in a healthier smile. As a result of the whitened teeth, patients want to keep their vibrant smile so they improve their own dental health to maintain their white smile.
Who is a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Any patient who would like to whiten their smile is a candidate. However, teeth whitening is not an option for patients who have gum disease, cavities, worn enamel, exposed roots and women who are pregnant. To find out if you are a candidate for teeth whitening, consult with our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Matt.
