Oral hygiene includes regular brushing and flossing and helps remove food particles and plaque from the teeth and gums. If tartar is not removed, it increases the chances of gum disease. Tartar cannot be removed through regular brushing and flossing; thus, the need for professional teeth cleaning. Plaque is a sticky bacteria film that develops on an individual’s teeth and along the gums.

 Teeth Whitening

The natural aging process leads to yellowing of the teeth. Dentin darkens with age, and this leads to the thinning of the enamel. Grinding and clenching of teeth accelerate the thinning process revealing duller, yellow teeth.  Teeth staining is also caused by substances like red wine, coffee, and tobacco. The groups of people who do not respond to teeth whitening treatment include people whose teeth discoloration is due to a genetic disorder, people whose teeth become discolored due to an overdose of fluoride, due to accident, or due to use of tetracycline.

How Teeth Whitening Works

In professional teeth whitening, a peroxide-bleaching agent is used to lighten the color of the internal dentin. This brightens the outer enamel making it shine, hence whitening an individual smile.

 In-office whitening, the highest strength is offered; thus, at-home trays, a concentrated bleaching solution is used. The product accelerates the process by applying a special light during whitening.

Polishing the external enamel as a way of removing a coffee stain, tea stain, wine, and tobacco is a process used in professional teeth whitening and gives an individual the best possible results.

For people who in-office teeth whitening is recommended

With Emerson Dental Arts, teeth whitening is recommended to anyone who has healthy, unrestored teeth and gums. Professional whitening cleans stains that are brought about by aging, accident, or medication. People whose teeth are discolored due to injury, genetics, or medication do not respond to professional whitening; hence Dr. Katz may recommend other cosmetic procedures which improve the teeth’s appearance.

Dr. Katz recommends individuals to solve all gum disease, cavities, recession, or misalignments prior to undergoing in-office teeth whitening. The in-office teeth whitening process aggravates pain when you have any of these issues.

At Emerson Dental Arts, the best in-office teeth whitening services are guaranteed. People in need of gum and bleeding treatment, Sedation Dentistry, emergency care, dental implants, and teeth cleaning, should book an appointment with Emerson Dental Arts for consultation and treatment.
