Teeth Whitening in Surrey
What is Teeth Whitening?
Performed with safe, potent, hydrogen-based chemicals, teeth whitening lifts extrinsic, or topical, dental stains. Whitening can erase stains caused by foods, beverages, tobacco, and age. Dr. Chohan uses SpaDent for chairside teeth whitening in about 20 minutes, and she also prescribes home bleaching kits. Depending on the type and intensity of your dental stains, the doctor will suggest the best treatment option.
Who Needs Teeth Whitening?
People whose teeth appear discolored, stained, or off-white may benefit from professional teeth whitening. Treatment works best on topical, extrinsic stains. Teeth that have internal stains, such as the white, horizontal lines of fluorosis, a gray appearance, or tetracycline stains, may not respond to chemical whitening. In these cases, Dr. Chohan may suggest composite or porcelain veneers.
What to Expect at a SpaDent Teeth Whitening Appointment
If you choose chairside whitening with SpaDent, we may schedule your appointment in conjunction with your dental checkup and cleaning. We will fill bleaching trays with the safe, effective SpaDent teeth whitening solution, place them on your teeth, and then expose your mouth to a gentle LED light to activate the bleaching power. Chemicals break stains into smaller and smaller particles so that they can be eliminated. This teeth whitening treatment takes just 20 minutes and yields dramatic results!
What to Expect with a Home Whitening Kit
With home whitening, you’ll receive custom-fitted bleaching trays and a safe chemical gel. Fill the trays with the gel, then wear them as instructed by Dr. Chohan. In most cases, patients wear trays for about an hour a day, for one week. The results of home whitening are similar to those of chairside bleaching. The main difference is that home whitening takes longer.
What to Expect Following Treatment
Your teeth will appear whiter, brighter, and bolder after professional whitening. Brush and floss normally, and attend regular checkups and cleanings. When your teeth begin to develop stains, simply schedule another treatment for SpaDent or call our office for a bleaching gel refill.
