Teeth Whitening

Tooth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. With the tooth whitening procedure, we can perform a restoration of natural tooth shade and if required, whitening beyond natural tooth shade. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look.

Tooth Whitening Procedure – Dr. Claudio Miro

Tooth whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the natural color of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface.

Treatment stages:

  • The actual whitening procedure may take up to an hour. Your entire visit could last 90 minutes.
  • More visits may be required to reach the desired result.
  • After the procedure you may temporarily experience some slight sensitivity of teeth.
Tooth Whitening Process – Dr. Claudio Miro

Tooth whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the natural color of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface.

Treatment stages:

  • If you haven’t had a cleaning recently, consider getting one prior to the whitening process.
  • We start with quick exam to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy enough for whitening.
  • We proceed to check if you have any dental restorations like bridges or crowns.

Benefits of Professional Tooth Whitening

By having a professional handle your teeth whitening will ensure your overall health since an experienced dentist can determine whether or not you are actually a suitable candidate for the procedure. Teeth whitening done by your dentist can get teeth brighter faster. Even if you are intent on trying at-home tooth-bleaching kits, be sure to talk to your dentist first.

There are a few over-the-counter tooth whitening solutions available such as whitening strips, paint-on tooth gel, mouth trays with gel, whitening toothpaste, and even whitening gum. However, these can take weeks (sometimes months) to start showing some of their benefits.

With the dentist-supervised systems available today, even patients with sensitive teeth can undergo teeth whitening treatment. A dentist can offer a personalized experience. We often see that over the counter whitening solutions cause issues due to their “one size fits all” nature.

Tooth whitening can have many benefits depending on the patient. From boosting your confidence and self-esteem by having a whiter smile to having a younger appearance. Also, when special occasions come up, such as a wedding or even a job interview, a whiter smile can lead to a positive first impression on others.

What foods cause my teeth to be stained/discolored?

Coffee, tea, wine, sports drinks, hard candy, berries and tomato sauce are all foods that can cause tooth discoloration.

What can I do if my teeth are sensitive after the process?

Sensitive toothpastes are formulated with ingredients such as potassium nitrate to relieve the pain associated with tooth sensitivity.

How long will my teeth stay white?

Tooth whitening can last for one or more years, depending on how well you take care of your teeth, and if you’re following up with your regular dentist appointments.
