As we age, it’s normal for teeth to become yellow or stained. This is due to the things we eat and the lifestyle choices we make. Thankfully, living with a dull smile isn’t necessary. In a situation where your teeth are in good health and condition, a simple teeth whitening solution may be the perfect fix.
Dr. Rudnick offers two techniques in teeth whitening to his Palm Beach Gardens guests. One can be done in the comforts of your own home, while the other is quickly and easily performed right in our office. They can be used as totally separate treatments, or combined to give you maximum whitening results.
For in-office whitening, Dr. Rudnick chooses Zoom! teeth whitening. With Zoom!, a custom whitening gel is applied to the teeth and activated using a special Zoom! light. The gel and light work together to remove stains and make teeth brighter. In as little as an hour, you may have a smile around 8 shades whiter.
At-home whitening is the best way to achieve brighter, whiter teeth at your own convenience. A customized tray is designed to fit your teeth perfectly, and you’ll be provided with a whitening solution to place in the trays. With an at-home whitening treatment, ideal whiteness is typically accomplished within three weeks.
The effects of tooth whitening can last several years, but this depends on what you eat and drink, whether or not you smoke, and how diligent you are regarding maintaining your teeth’s whiteness.
It’s important to note, that before teeth can be whitened, cavities must be treated. The whitening solution can penetrate tooth decay and reach the inner areas of the tooth. Whitening will not work on exposed tooth roots because there is no enamel on the roots. Crowns and porcelain veneers cannot be whitened. Tooth whitening works best on teeth that have been stained by food, drinks or age.
Having a beautiful, brighter smile doesn’t always mean you have to endure complicated cosmetic treatments. Teeth whitening by Palm Beach Gardens dentist, Dr. Rudnick, may be the best way to perfect your smile in a conservative way. Schedule your consultation by contacting our office–a brighter, whiter smile can be yours in no time!
