Our teeth can discolor through the years as our enamel picks up color from coffee, wine and other colored foods. Teeth whitening helps restore teeth to a shiny white color through the use of bleach.
Teeth whitening methods
There are two popular teeth whitening options available through your Dr. Danny Shiri. The first, in-office teeth whitening, produces a significant color change in your teeth in a short amount of time, usually within an hour. The procedure is done by Dr. Shiri in office by applying a high-concentration peroxide gel on the teeth after they have been protected with a special shield.
The second method involves the use of take-home whitening kits. The strength of the gel used in these kits is lower than that used for in-office bleaching, and thus the gel can be applied for longer periods of time. Usually, the trays are worn a couple hours a day or overnight for one or two weeks, depending on the color of the teeth.
It’s best to consult with Dr. Shiri to understand which whitening option is best for you. Contact our office today to schedule your consultation.
