Posted by Brighter Day Dental on May 16 2021, 11:59 PM

Having a pleasant-looking smile is something everyone desires. A beautiful smile can uplift our facial and overall appearance to a great extent. But, not all of us may be lucky enough to have that flawless smile due to cosmetic dental concerns that ruin the smile. One such significant concern is teeth discoloration.

How Do The Teeth Stain?

Our teeth may stain due to the following reasons:

  • Excessive consumption of colored foods
  • Improper oral hygiene
  • Chewing tobacco and smoking cigarettes
  • Excessive consumption of beverages, red wine, alcohol, etc.
  • Aging and wear of the teeth

How Can Teeth Be Whitened?

At Brighter Day Dental, Concord, CA, our dentist can remove the stains on your teeth with the help of our customized teeth whitening solutions. The dentist will screen your teeth to understand the severity of your oral condition and suggest a suitable teeth whitening method as required. Here are some of the commonly used teeth whitening procedures:

  • Conventional In-House Whitening

In-house teeth whitening is the simplest and most commonly preferred method of teeth whitening. At Brighter Day Dental, Concord, CA, the dentist understands the severity of the discoloration and screens the mouth for various factors, such as cavities, gum disease, existing teeth restorations, receding gum line, among others. We will clean your teeth thoroughly and place a rubber dam on them to cover the gums and keep them from coming in contact with the whitening gel. We will apply a whitening gel to the teeth, spread it evenly, and allow it to bleach the porous enamel. After a few minutes, we will rinse off the gel, and we may repeat the procedure multiple times to get a higher level of whitening.

  • Take-Home Whitening Trays

Our dentists will provide you customized whitening trays so that you can take them home and use them as and when you find the time. When you visit our dental practice, we will scan the teeth and use digital impressions to fabricate whitening trays. We will also provide teeth whitening gel. When you use them, you have to clean the teeth before starting the procedure thoroughly. You may squeeze a small amount of whitening gel onto the trays, speed it evenly, and place them on your teeth. After a few minutes, you may take them off, rinse the whitening gel, and repeat the procedure.

  • Laser teeth whitening

The applications of lasers in the field of dentistry are numerous. One such notable use of laser is in teeth whitening. We use a photosensitive whitening gel for this purpose, which will be activated using a laser of the right intensity. When activated, the gel produces a foam filled with oxygen molecules, which gently bleach the staining particles in the enamel. Laser teeth whitening is the quickest of the lot and is highly preferred by individuals who run on tight schedules or need a quick teeth whitening done for special occasions.
