Teeth Whitening In Reading Choices

There are three key teeth whitening choices. Which one is right for you depends on your circumstances. Sometimes you may require a combination of treatments to get the desired outcome.

1. Laser Teeth Whitening

Laser teeth whitening is done in-house and is when the whitening gel is applied to the teeth. The gel is that exposure to UV laser light. This option offers instant results. The results are so quick in fact, that your dentist can show you a before and after comparison when the treatment is over.

2. Home Whitening

Your dentist takes molds of your teeth with dental putty and uses the mold to create something akin to a gum shield. These trays can be worn at home for as long as needed to give you brilliant white teeth from the comfort of home.

3. Diamond Polish

A diamond polish, also known as airflow whitening, is the best treatment for teeth that have been heavily stained. This involves polishing teeth with a combination of air, water, and sodium bicarbonate to remove stains and plaque to give you whiter teeth in a flash.

How Long do Teeth Whitening in Reading Results Last?

If you’re going to invest in having your teeth whitened then you want to be sure that the results will last. A good dentist offers a lot of aftercare, but how long the results last depends on how much you pay attention to oral hygiene. Your teeth will stay white if you practice good oral health and avoid things like tea, coffee, wine, and cigarettes.

Are Teeth Whitening Treatments Safe?

While some people will not experience any side effects, most people who have their teeth whitened will notice that their teeth are more sensitive during and after treatment. This sensitivity should fade within 48 hours. It’s recommended that you avoid eating or drinking particularly cold or hot food and drinks until the sensitivity goes away.
