You can’t fix some discolorations on your teeth with just brushing and flossing. Poor oral hygiene habits and certain foods and drinks can stain your teeth, including:
Teeth whitening can improve the appearance of most teeth discolorations. Dr. Cold’s in-office teeth-whitening procedures can whiten your teeth several shades whiter, which leaves you more confident with your smile and overall appearance.
Teeth whitening works by targeting concentrations of discoloration on your teeth and breaking them apart with a bleaching agent, making your teeth whiter. The active ingredient of the bleaching agent is hydrogen peroxide.
Dr. Cold uses GLO® Science Professional teeth whitening technology, which uses heat to amplify your results. During a teeth whitening at his office, Dr. Cold applies the bleaching agent directly to your teeth via a tray you wear.
The bleach clears up stains and discolorations. In just one in-office session, on average, you will see your teeth get five shades whiter. He also offers GLO’s take-home trays and provides detailed instructions so you can whiten your teeth at home on your own time.
The amount of time you need to wear the tray depends on the level of discoloration of your teeth and your desired results.
No, a single teeth-whitening procedure isn’t a permanent solution to keeping your smile bright. You need to maintain good oral hygiene habits, namely brushing and flossing regularly.
As long as you take good care of your teeth, the results of a whitening should last at least six months. You can get additional teeth whitenings to reinvigorate your smile every so often.
The most notable risk after a teeth-whitening procedure is heightened tooth sensitivity. However, with GLO® Science’s innovative technology, it’s highly unlikely you’ll experience any sensitivity after treatment.
If you want to give your smile that extra boost it needs, call or use the convenient online booking tool and schedule a teeth whitening at Warm Family Dentistry in Salt Lake City, Utah today.
