As we age, our teeth can shift colors due to the enamel wearing down. This wear allows for dentin, a yellow substance at the core of our teeth, to shine through. This, as well as some dietary habits we may pick up along the way, can give our teeth a yellowish tint. Professional in-office teeth whitening with Port Orchard Dental Care Center can help restore your pearly whites color with the use of dental specified bleach.
Teeth whitening methods
There are two methods of teeth whitening that we currently offer. The first is an in-office teeth whitening procedure which can cause a significant color change in your teeth usually within an hour. This is performed at our Port Orchard dental office by applying a special high-concentrate peroxide gel to the teeth after they have been protected with special shields.
The second method involves the usage of a take-home whitening kit which we can provide you with. These kits include a peroxide gel that is not as strong as what we would use in-office but is stronger than any strips or pastes you would get in stores. We will provide you also with custom fit trays that you wear with the gel for a couple hours a day or overnight for a few days or weeks, depending on our individualized recommendations.
