Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a procedure that brightens your smile and removes surface stains. Teeth whitening is the process of treating yellowed teeth, stained teeth from tobacco use, or discolored teeth from drinking too much dark tea, coffee, or wine. It is safe, economical, and effective.

If your teeth are stained, a smile makeover from Hansen Dental’s Dr. Neal Rosenberg might be just what you need. Kindly get more information about our Cedarburg teeth whitening procedures as soon as possible.

What is the process for teeth whitening?

Understanding the various teeth-whitening products’ functions, such as those of mouthwash, toothpaste, trays, gels, and strips, can be difficult. All of these things, though, are based on the same fundamental principles.

The active ingredient in almost all teeth-whitening products is a peroxide; carbamide or hydrogen peroxide are the most common types. Peroxides are made up of oxygen molecules that undergo a reaction when they come into contact with discolored teeth.

The chemical “bonds” that hold discolored molecules together are broken when peroxides interact with them. They are able to effectively “bleach” the teeth by removing the surface stains from the tooth enamel!

What Problems Can Whitening Teeth Help With?

Most tooth discolorations can be treated with teeth whitening, including:

  • Yellowing caused by getting older
  • Tobacco smoke causes teeth to discolor.
  • Teeth can be stained by tannin-containing foods and beverages such as wine, coffee, tea, and berries.
  • Stains and discoloration caused by poor dental hygiene

External, or extrinsic, stains can only be eliminated by teeth whitening. Teeth that have internal stains, or intrinsic stains, cannot be whitened. For additional information on the various cosmetic dentistry procedures available to treat hidden tooth stains, get in touch with Dr. Neal Rosenberg.

In-office versus at-home teeth whitening methods

Hansen Dental offers teeth-whitening procedures that can be done both in-office and at home.

Even though both methods work just as well, in-office whitening produces results more quickly.

A comprehensive teeth cleaning is required prior to in-office whitening. Plaque and bacteria will be removed by a dental hygienist to ensure your teeth are ready for the procedure.

Your gums will then be treated with a shielding solution to shield them from the sensitivity caused by the bleaching agents. Dr. Neal Rosenberg will then apply the teeth-whitening solution and “activate” the ingredients with a special lamp. Everything is finished! Your staining intensity may determine whether you only need one whitening appointment.

If you would prefer to whiten your teeth on your own schedule and in a calm environment, at-home whitening is an excellent substitute. Dr. Neal Rosenberg will make plastic trays that fit perfectly and fill them with the best bleaching solutions available.

Simply follow Dr. Neal Rosenberg’s treatment recommendations to whiten your teeth when you’re ready. The surface stains will go in a few weeks, revealing a brighter, whiter smile!
