Rihanna said “shine bright like a diamond” and when it comes to your smile, we have to agree! Many people turn to teeth whitening to achieve a stunning smile, and it’s no wonder why. But, when it comes to teeth whitening, should you choose a professional dentist-guided treatment or an over-the-counter solution? Let’s explore the magic of teeth whitening and why you should trust the professionals at Vital Dental Care.
What Causes Teeth to Become Stained?
Before we dive into the wonders of teeth whitening, let’s understand what causes our teeth to lose their natural brilliance. Over time, various factors can lead to teeth stains and discoloration. The most common culprits include:
- Diet: Certain foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and highly pigmented fruits, can leave stubborn stains on your teeth.
- Tobacco: Smoking or chewing tobacco can result in yellowed teeth due to the presence of tar and nicotine.
- Ageing: As we age, the outer layer of enamel on our teeth naturally wears down, revealing the yellowish dentin beneath.
- Poor Oral Hygiene: Neglecting regular brushing and flossing can lead to the buildup of plaque and tartar, both of which can cause discoloration.
- Medications: Some medications can lead to tooth discoloration as a side effect.
With this in mind, let’s explore how teeth whitening, particularly the dentist-guided approach at Vital Dental Care, can help you regain that radiant, confident smile.
Dentist-Guided Whitening: Looking After Your Teeth
When it comes to teeth whitening, trust is paramount, and you should only entrust your smile to the professionals. At Vital Dental Care, we offer Philips Zoom In-Chair Teeth Whitening.
Not only is it super effective (expect a smile that’s up to 8 shades), it actually helps to strengthen the enamel, leading to healthier teeth – win, win!
Professional vs. Over-the-Counter Treatments
The key advantage of professional dental whitening over DIY products is the speed and safety it offers. Over-the-counter products might promise whiter teeth, but they often come with potential risks to your gum health, can erode the tooth enamel, and may take longer to deliver visible results.
How Our Whitening Works
At Vital Dental Care, we use Philips Zoom In-Chair whitening to ensure the safest and most effective results possible. Here’s what you can expect:
- Say Cheese
We take before and after shots so you can see the difference in the brilliance of your smile after your treatment is done.
- Gentle Gum Protection
Before we begin, we take care to protect your gums with a special covering. This ensures that the whitening gel only interacts with your teeth, preventing any harm to your sensitive gum tissue.
- Unique Hydrogen Peroxide Gel
Your dentist will apply a unique hydrogen peroxide whitening gel to your teeth. Hydrogen peroxide is the superhero in teeth whitening – it breaks down the molecular bonds that make up stains on and within your teeth.
- The Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed Whitening LED Accelerator
This powerful LED light accelerates the whitening process, making it work even faster. In fact, it can improve your whitening results by up to 40%.
- Results in Approximately 2 Hours
The entire process takes just about two hours, allowing you to kick back, relax, and catch up on your favourite Netflix show thanks to our above-chair TV screen.
For Optimal Results
To maximise the results and value of your teeth whitening treatment, we recommend having your teeth professionally cleaned a week or two before your whitening visit. This makes sure they’re in tip top condition and ready for whitening.
Each in-chair Philips Zoom service includes a take-home pack with soothing gel, custom trays, and a fresh vial of whitening product to ensure your smile will stay bright and fresh.
Achieving a dazzling, radiant smile is easy at Vital Dental Care! With dentist-guided teeth whitening, you can transform your smile quickly and comfortably, all while ensuring the safety and health of your teeth and gums. Say goodbye to stained teeth and hello to a brilliant, confident new you!
