Teeth Whitening

Get rid of your teeth stains and enjoy a brighter and more confident smile with a professional tooth whitening procedure at Metro Dental.

What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a procedure in which bleaching agents are applied to the teeth to remove stains which are present beneath the enamel layer. While numerous teeth whitening products are available for home use, professional teeth whitening at Metro Dental provides much better aesthetics and reduction in the shade of teeth. This is because Dr. Lynn uses a potent, yet very safe bleaching agent which gets rid of all types of teeth stains.

Who Can Benefit from Teeth Whitening?

You are a candidate for a professional tooth whitening procedure if you seek treatment for any of the following cosmetic dental problems:

  • Coffee and Tea Stains – coffee and tea stains are one of the worst enemies of a beautiful smile and pearly white teeth. A professional teeth whitening procedure can help you get rid of these stains.

  • Tobacco – whether you chew or smoke tobacco, this habit can cause your teeth to become stained. For getting rid of tobacco stains, Dr. Lynn recommends a professional teeth whitening procedure.

  • Need Brighter Teeth ­– teeth whitening is also a good option for you if are not satisfied with the shade of your teeth, and would like to enjoy a pearly white smile. Teeth whitening gives you a significantly lighter shade of the teeth.

How is Teeth Whitening Performed?

A teeth whitening procedure is very simple, and each sitting is completed within an hour. During your first appointment, Dr. Lynn will assess the current shade of your teeth and assess the number of appointments you need for achieving optimal results. At this stage, she will also make impressions of your teeth which will be used for preparing custom-made whitening trays.

In the next appointment, Dr. Lynn will apply petroleum jelly or cocoa butter on your gums to prevent them from accidental bleaching. Next, she will fill your custom-made whitening trays and you will be asked to wear them over your teeth. The trays are removed after 30 minutes. After the procedure, your teeth will have a visibly lighter shade. In case of heavy teeth staining, Dr. Lynn may recommend multiple sittings for getting rid of all the stains.

After a teeth whitening procedure, it is not common to have slight discomfort or sensitivity in your teeth. However, it should go away within 2-3 days. It is also worth mentioning that the effects of teeth whitening are not permanent. However, you can retain the lighter shade of your teeth and your brand new smile by taking good care of your oral hygiene. The more you prevent plaque and tartar deposition, the longer your teeth will remain whiter.
