Professional Teeth Whitening vs Over-the-Counter
Professional teeth whitening is customized by the dentist to meet your needs and goals. The products that Dr. Sinclair offers are specially formulated to maximize results while minimizing side effects like tooth sensitivity. Dr. Sinclair will create a custom fit bleaching tray to protect gums and deliver consistent results. Even though there are many cheap options for over-the-counter teeth whitening, professional teeth whitening will deliver predictable and noticeable results faster and with little effort. Over-the-counter options will take much longer to show results and those results are unpredictable. With a dentist present while your teeth are being whitened, there is little risk of damaging your teeth and gums.
Types of Teeth Whitening
At home teeth whitening kits can be bought from Dr. Sinclair and used in the comfort of your home and on your own schedule. A lower concentration of bleach is used in these kits, so results are seen after a longer period of usage. Typically, the kits recommend bleaching once a day for a few weeks. A custom set of bleaching trays will used to guarantee even distribution of the bleaching formula.
For patients who want to whiten their teeth faster and see immediate results, Dr. Sinclair offers in-office teeth whitening at his dentistry in Virginia Beach VA. In-office teeth whitening is simple, fast and painless. The results are usually delivered in about an hour and will give you a foundation for your at home efforts. Since in-office teeth whitening has immediate results, it’s a great option for special occasions such as weddings, graduations and job interviews.
It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped bleaching. It’s encouraged to visit your dentist regularly to help maintain a beautiful, healthy, white smile.
In most cases, the color of teeth can be improved with a teeth whitening procedure. For cases where teeth are significantly stained or discolored, Dr. Sinclair may recommend covering the tooth with a dental veneer or dental crown.
