Professional teeth whitening is perhaps the most common component of cosmetic dentistry. Whitening is a simple treatment that improves the aesthetic appearance of teeth and therefore a great confidence booster.
A patient’s current shade will appear lighter and have a noticeable improvement with fewer dramatic stains. Even the toughest stains can look less prominent than before, making patients less afraid to show off their smiles.
We learn to expect that teeth do not naturally stay white forever, but that is because their enamel is porous. Tobacco, food, drinks, and some medications can stain the teeth.
Numerous factors cause teeth to appear more yellow, discolored, or stained over time.
Fortunately, the experienced cosmetic dental team at Dental Arts of New Orleans, LA can customize our whitening options based on the patient’s needs and desires.
Two examples are our in-office Zoom whitening treatment and our custom-fit take-home whitening trays.
Teeth whitening is for people looking to have a whiter and brighter smile, who want to boost their confidence, or who are getting ready for a milestone or impactful event and want a beautiful smile for the occasion.
Teeth whitening procedures best suit people with good oral health and healthy enamel. It can help with issues like age spots, yellow or orange coloring from food, drink, and smoking, or darkening teeth from natural aging.
Coffee, red wine, colored dyes in the foods we eat, cigarette smoke, and cracks in the teeth can all cause stains that are difficult to remove or reduce. Teeth whitening requires multiple sessions for some people and just one or two appointments for others. During the consultation we will determine which frequency of teeth whitening is best for you based on the results we would like to achieve.
Teeth whitening goes beyond surface stains in order to adequately penetrate deeper ones.
Teeth whitening is still helpful for those with brown, dark, or gray strains deriving from fluoridated water, medicines, and smoking. These specific stains and their causes are slightly harder to combat and may not decrease entirely, but whitening still improves their appearances.
People with severe oral issues like gum disease, oral cancer, severe tooth decay, worn enamel, and other dental problems may not be the best candidates for whitening treatment.
A patient first receives a consultation appointment where our dental team examines his or her oral health in order to make a proper assessment of any dental issues. Patients can inform us of any concerns about their smile. We will then determine if they are candidates for teeth whitening treatments and discuss their various options for such treatment.
