Teeth whitening is one of the top cosmetic dental procedures desired by people today. There are numerous whitening products that can be purchased in stores, but professional teeth whitening is the most effective and fastest method of teeth whitening available.
The reason that dentists like Dr. Aman in Leesburg can perform more effective and faster teeth whitening than anyone can by doing it themselves at home is because professionals are able to use stronger whitening agents. Professional products would be too dangerous for people to use themselves at home, but when used by a professional in an office, they are safe. Professional whitening also protects the gums from the bleaching products by covering them with a protective substance before the whitening process begins.
Professional whitening will give you visible results after just one appointment. You may wish to return to the office for another procedure if you desire a whiter smile. One of the biggest advantages to in-office whitening is that lasers can be used to speed up the whitening process. Laser teeth whitening involves the use of a laser to cure or harden the whitening agent so that it can act on your teeth faster. This means that you can enter the office for a teeth whitening procedure and see yourself with whiter teeth in just a few hours. The use of lasers to speed up the process also means that the bleaching agent is on your teeth for less time than it would be without the use of lasers. This reduces the chances of irritation from the bleaching agent being in your mouth for a long time.
After whitening has given you the level of whiteness and brightness that you desire, Dr. Aman can provide you with whitening kits that you can use at home to maintain your white smile. If you’re interested in having a whiter smile, call the Leesburg office for an appointment to discuss whitening options.
