Teeth Whitening - Chandler, AZ
Is Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Effective?
Today, we have more options than ever before for teeth whitening solutions. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products like toothpastes, gels, and whitening strips promise fast, beautiful results, but are they really all they’re made out to be? If you’re considering purchasing an over-the-counter teeth whitening treatment, be aware that in many cases, the words “whitening” and “bleaching” are used reciprocally. This means that they are interchangeable. Any product that eliminates food or debris from teeth can be called a “whitening” or “bleaching” product.
Also, beware of bleaching that is not overseen or administered by a dentist, because the process can whiten your teeth beyond their natural shade. As the oxygen molecules in bleach permeate your dental enamel, they eliminate the chemical bonds between stains. Although over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments can be less expensive than professional teeth whitening, some whitening products may contain dangerously high degrees of peroxide and produce unnatural-looking results.
Although over-the-counter products could make your teeth whiter, you can count on professional teeth whitening as a safe method that will leave you with a transformed, natural-looking smile.
Whether you’re trying to prepare your pearly whites for a special upcoming event or you want to erase years of stains on your teeth, Dr. Arooni and the team at our Chandler, AZ dental office can help lighten your teeth up to 10 shades in one visit with teeth whitening. Call (480) 855-1200 to schedule a consultation today.
Radical Change, Rapid Results
One teeth whitening treatment with Dr. Arooni is all it takes to transform your smile from drab to dreamy. Dr. Arooni offers different options to best suit patients’ teeth whitening needs. Whether you want instant results with an in-office treatment, or you prefer the comfort and ease of our professional home systems to gradually lighten your teeth, all of Dr. Arooni’s whitening treatments can produce real, gorgeous results.
If you choose to undergo our in-office whitening treatment, a professional dental assistant will place a special bleaching gel on your teeth. The gel permeates the enamel and dentin, lifting the stains. After one brief treatment, you can leave with a transformed smile! If you opt to brighten up your smile from the comfort of your own home, a dental assistant will begin by casting impressions for custom-fitted bleaching trays. The dentist will prescribe NiteWhite professional-grade whitening gel. Patients should use this product as prescribed daily to attain the same radiant results that chairside teeth whitening produces.
Even teeth stained from years of consuming staining foods, wine, coffee, or tobacco can be restored to a brilliant shine. Some stains react differently than others, so Dr. Arooni will fully evaluate your tooth enamel before recommending a specific treatment. For example, yellowing and darkening caused by tobacco, drinks such as coffee, and certain foods will generally respond well to teeth whitening. However, patients whose smile has been dulled by certain medications or overexposure to fluoride sometimes can’t be erased by whitening treatments alone. For these patients, Dr. Arooni may propose porcelain veneers instead.
