One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure at present is teeth whitening. Teeth whitening lightens your teeth and helps remove stains and discoloration. It can greatly impact how your teeth look.

And one of the best ways for teeth whitening is Britesmile Whitening. Britesmile whitening can effectively improve the appearance of your teeth in just a single office visit. It is proven to make your teeth 7 shades lighter in just an hour! Britesmile whitening is made of gel applied to your teeth while a special light activates it and removes stains. The gels are ph balanced and compatible with tooth enamel and the special light which is safe for tooth and gums, is shaped to effectively illuminate and whiten both upper and lower teeth at the same time. There is no substitute for the professional touch from Napa Valley Dental that can show you immediate visible results.

Let us first identify the causes for teeth discoloration:

  1. Extrinsic – extrinsic discoloration occurs when the outer layer of the tooth is stained due to food and drinks that can easily stain your teeth including wine, coffee and soda.
  1. Intrinsic – Intrinsic discoloration occurs when the inner structure of the tooth darkens due to several factors like too much exposure to fluoride at a young age; use of tetracycline antibiotics when you were 8 years or younger; a trauma on a permanent tooth that caused internal bleeding and many others.
  1. Age related – age related discoloration is a combination of extrinsic and intrinsic factors. As you get older, dentin will naturally turn yellow because the enamel that covers the teeth gets thinner over the years. This in turn makes your teeth more prone to discoloration especially when the pulp has been damaged.

What are the procedures involved in Britesmile Whitening?

Before undergoing the britesmile teeth whitening, your dentist will be performing dental cleaning then the whitening gel will be applied afterwards. Then the britesmile blue light will be positioned over the teeth to activate the gel and will be left on your teeth for three 20-minute intervals.

This is not advised though for pregnant or lactating women and those who have dental restorations such as veneers or crown and bridges.

Professional whitening vs. over the counter whitening

There are various options for getting a whiter teeth, there are some that you can do at home and some that require dental appointments. Dentists have been offering a greater variety of bleaching procedures.

The improper use of whitening products may not guarantee safety for your teeth and gums.

Britesmile aftercare:

We want to make sure that the effects of the whitening procedures we get are going to be long lasting. This is something that will have to depend on you too. Your dentist may advise you to avoid certain food and beverages or to consume them in moderation.

Cigarette smoking and tobacco will also stain teeth so it is better to avoid them or stop using them. You also have to make sure good oral habits are maintained to prevent stains from reforming and continue to take time for your regular dental visits.
