Dubai Cosmetic Dentistry: Teeth Whitening

Are you searching for a simple and fast approach to improve your smile? You can have a teeth whitening procedure done at your dental clinic. In Dubai cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening is one of the most common dental procedures that people undergo because it is safe, affordable, and helps you have a pearly white smile in no time. Who wouldn’t want a lovely smile with magnificent white teeth, right?

Here are some of the common dental problems that may benefit or be solved by teeth whitening.

Teeth Stains

Before diving deeper into teeth whitening, let us talk about the two types of stains that we get on our teeth: superficial stains and deep stains.

Superficial stains are those that appear on the surface of the teeth due mainly to our daily consumption of refreshments, foods and tobacco, and routine wear and tear. These superficial stains are minor and can be removed with brushing and prophylactic dental cleaning. They can also be removed quite easily and takes just a few minutes on the dentist chair depending on how much stains there are to remove.

Deep stains are those that are already inside the teeth. Deep stains result from damage and long-term bad dental hygiene or other dental conditions that the patient might have. Today, Dubai Dentistry  has the technology and know how in order to remove deep stains using more advanced teeth whitening products. If all else fails, there are elective therapeutic responses to treat deep stains, for instance, putting veneers on the teeth.

 

Teeth Whitening Options

In-Office Whitening

One of the easiest and fastest ways you can have whiter teeth is to ask your dentist about in-office whitening. This includes a short session where your dentist will put a layer of hydrogen peroxide solution on your teeth for about 15-20 minutes then rinse it off to see the whitening effect. The process can be done twice to achieve a stronger whitening effect if the patient wishes. Those patients that have really bad stains may be urged to return within a week or so for additional whitening sessions, or may be advised to continue the whitening process on their own by using a home-whitening system.

Over-the-Counter Products

There are also products now that you can buy to achieve whiter teeth that don’t require you to get a prescription from your dentist. These are dental products that have whitening hydrogen peroxide in them already like tooth pastes or other dental cream. All you have to do is follow the instructions regarding the frequency of application and what you need to do while using the product. There are also whitening products that you need to wear overnight while you are sleeping aside from using the tooth paste.

 

Next time you are thinking of improving your smile or if you want to achieve whiter teeth, you can simply go to the drug store and buy some whitening products or schedule a whitening session with your dentist for faster and more professional results.
