Teeth Whitening

teeth whiteningDr. Ginn’s professional, take-home teeth-whitening kits can erase the years and give you a dazzling new smile.

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular choices to improve the cosmetics of your smile. That being said, there are a ton of options available in the marketplace for teeth whitening products. You may opt to use a toothpaste, mouthwash, or strips that are available in stores. However, you should know that these products may not give you the results you are looking for. The reason for this is that these products lack a bleaching agent. Due to the lack of peroxide or another bleaching agent, these products can only lighten your teeth by one shade.

Next, you may try an over-the-counter teeth whitening system that contains peroxide, or another bleaching agent. However, these products do not contain a high enough concentration of peroxide in order to give you the best results possible.

So, what is the best option for having whiter teeth? Dr. Ginn knows the secret and uses a product that can make your smile look years younger and much whiter and brighter. He offers a tremendous take-home product that will give you the results you’ve always wanted.

Am I a candidate for whitening?

Before selecting a teeth whitening system, you should determine if you are a candidate for these products. Unfortunately, if you have veneers, bonding, or other restorations that are stained, a teeth whitening system will not bleach these as well. This will lead to your teeth being multicolored and a worse look than before the system was used.

Why are my teeth discolored?

If you are wondering why your teeth are stained in the first place, it could be the result of food and drink choices, tobacco use, age, trauma, or medications. Some of these stain your teeth in a way that can be reversed, while other staining may not be able to be treated through whitening. The best thing to keep in mind is that yellow teeth will often bleach well, brown teeth may not whiten well, and teeth with a gray shade might not whiten at all.

How does take-home teeth-whitening work?

You may be wondering how Dr. Ginn’s take-home teeth whitening system works. Dr. Ginn’s system is quite easy. For optimal results, you should wear your custom-made trays that are lined with a safe, yet effective, bleaching gel for two hours per night over the course of two weeks. If you wear your trays for two hours per night for two weeks, you will see results that rival the pricey, in-office system that other dentists offer.

It is important to note that the teeth-whitening system that Dr. Ginn prescribes will have a much stronger concentration of peroxide, or another bleaching agent, than over-the-counter systems.

Will there be any side effects?

During the course of your treatment, you may experience some side effects. The most common side effect of teeth-whitening is tooth sensitivity. This tooth sensitivity stems from the bleaching agent in the system reaching your exposed dentin and irritating the nerve of your tooth. If you experience some tooth sensitivity, it should subside if you suspend your teeth whitening system. If you overuse a tooth whitening product, you can cause harm and damage to your teeth and enamel. If you think you are damaging your teeth you should consult Dr. Ginn right away.

How do I keep them white after whitening treatment?

After you have completed your two-week program, and have the results you are looking for, you must maintain good dental health habits. If you brush, use mouthwash and floss, and visit Dr. Ginn on a regular basis, your teeth should remain bright and white. However, should you see stains beginning to form, Dr. Ginn recommends using your kit to do touch ups as needed.
