Teeth Whitening in Mequon
Millions of individuals express dissatisfaction with teeth that appear dulled or stained, taking away from the appearance their smiles. Discoloration of teeth can be linked to inadequate oral hygiene, but it is also associated with the natural aging process and the weakening of teeth, which can stem from various factors.
Professional teeth whitening in Mequon, WI make it easier to achieve a bright smile, sometimes in just one treatment. The treatment works by treating the teeth with a hydrogen peroxide gel and then activating the gel to release oxygen ions. These oxygen ions flood your teeth and break down interior and exterior staining to achieve a bright look. This process is incredibly effective and extremely safe with little to no discomfort.
What are the benefits of teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening enhances your smile, elevating your self-confidence and contributing to a healthier looking appearance. It can even make one look more energetic. This transformation can significantly enhance your overall look, and in certain cases, results can be achieved after just one treatment.
How is professional teeth whitening performed?
Our office currently offers two different types of professional whitening services: in-office and custom-made trays.
- In-office. These procedures start by covering up vulnerable areas inside the mouth, including the lips and gums, to prevent exposure from the peroxide. Then, we apply a high-concentrate hydrogen peroxide gel directly to the teeth and activate it. You will rest comfortably for a short time until the gel does its work. Then we remove the coverings and rinse the gel away.
- Custom-made trays. We will take a custom mold of your teeth to make clear trays that you take home, along with a whitening gel. These trays will help minimize the risk of whitening gel affecting your gums or mouth and you can whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home. All you have to do is place the whitening gel inside the trays and place the trays in your mouth.
How do I whiten my teeth at home?
If you’re looking for a teeth whitening remedy without coming to the dentist, there are a few simple things you can try at home like brushing with baking soda, use hydrogen peroxide to brush or rinse with on an occasional basis (cut the peroxide in half so you are using a 1.5% solution and not a 3% solution, which is common for over-the-counter), use apple cider vinegar as a brushing or rinsing agent, eat more fruits and vegetables—they are good for your body and your teeth, limit foods that stain your teeth such as soda, coffee and wine, limit your sugar intake and always remember to brush and floss twice a day—it’s still a powerful tool.
