Teeth Whitening

teeth whiteningA brilliant, attractive smile conveys confidence and vitality. As we age, our teeth naturally darken. One of the most popular ways to enhance your smile and improve your appearance is teeth whitening. Patients can visit our dentist in Phuket and leave with a stunning, white smile.

With teeth whitening, our dentist in phuket can bleach the enamel to remove discolorations and stains from teeth. Research and clinical studies show that under the supervision of your dentist, chair-side teeth whitening with carbamide peroxide and/or hydrogen peroxide is safe for both teeth and gums. You can choose from in-office whitening, like Zoom!, for an immediate transformation or take-home kits, which will gradually brighten your smile over a few weeks.

Tooth stains fall into two categories – extrinsic and intrinsic stains. The extrinsic, or external, stains only impact the surface of the teeth. Intrinsic stains are present inside the teeth and are harder to remove than extrinsic stains. Usually, extrinsic stains look yellow or brown while internal stains are typically gray or blue in color. You can develop teeth staining from a variety of causes including: Beverages such as coffee, teas, and colas Aging Medication (antibiotic) staining Trauma Disease Genetics Tobacco Excessive fluoride Insufficient oral hygiene Nerve degeneration
With teeth whitening, patients can choose either in-office or at-home whitening. For in-office whitening, such as Zoom! The dentists cover your lips and gums before applying a thin coating of gel on your teeth.

The dentist activates the paste with a special ultraviolet light. In one appointment, you can leave with a brilliant new smile. For at-home whitening, the dentist will take molds of your teeth and supply you with custom molds as well as professional grade whitening solution. Just apply a thin layer of gel to the trays and wear them as directed each day.

Most patients notice a difference in 10 to 14 days, and the full impact will appear at the end of the whitening period. Professional teeth whitening can safely and effectively remove surface stains and renew your smile. Products like Zoom! Whitening and BriteSmile can lighten your teeth 10 to 12 shades in no time. Good oral hygiene, regular dental visits, and avoidance of products that stain will keep your smile looking fantastic

Some patients develop mild sensitivity after whitening. Time and toothpaste that alleviates this sensation will help minimize any discomfort you feel
