Teeth whitening is the ideal solution for getting a bright white smile in almost no time at all! At Unique Dental Care in Mesa, we provide the highest quality teeth bleaching around. Teeth bleaching is a fairly rapid procedure and can be completed in less than 90 minutes. Please notice that “bleaching” is simply the name for the whitening process; bleach is never used. Instead, we use high levels of hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. These two variations of peroxide deliver both fast and powerful stain-lifting power.
Teeth become stained due to the millions of tiny tubules in dental enamel. Enamel is the hardest substance in the body, but the tubules open up into microscope holes that allow staining material to essentially plug those holes. Note that regular teeth cleanings don’t affect stained or discolored teeth. They help the teeth stay healthy, but they cannot alleviate deep stainings, such as dark-colored beverages like coffee, tea, colas, and red wine.
When you come to see us at Unique Dental Care in Mesa, you’ll first get a thorough teeth cleaning and oral exam to make sure your teeth are healthy. Bleaching gel composed of a sticky agent combined with a high percentage of peroxide is painted onto your teeth or filled into a tooth tray and left on for 30 minutes. It’s then rinsed away, and more gel is painted on. Often a special light is used to intensify the bleaching effects. After all the gel is rinsed off, you should see an immediate 3 to 10 shade difference, although it can take a few days for maximum whiteness to power up.
Be aware that drinking dark beverages or strongly pigmented foods like beets and dark drinks like tea, red wine, or coffee will cause re-staining, as does smoking. The structure of the tooth, with its tubules, is not changed by the whitening process. However, we provide take-home whitening solutions that are far more effective than over-the-counter whitening agents.
