One of the easiest ways to improve your smile cosmetically is through teeth whitening, one of the procedures available from Michelsen Dental in Orange. Whitening teeth is a quick, non-invasive method to improve your overall appearance and bring confidence to your daily interactions with people.
Before beginning the procedure, we recommend each patient meet with us for a consultation. This will help you determine which whitening method is best for you. We can also discuss foods and habits, such as smoking, that you can avoid to keep your teeth whiter longer.”
You can also discuss other aspects of your smile you would like to improve. New, industry-leading technology provides methods to correct any dental issue you may have.
During your consultation, decide just how white you want your teeth to be. Depending on the whitening technique chosen, your teeth can be lightened three to eight shades in just an hour. An in-office procedure produces a degree of lightening that cannot be achieved with a grocery store product. During your treatment, your dentist may apply a coating to protect your gums and roots while the bleaching agent is applied. A laser is then used to make the bleach work faster.
An alternative technique is a take-home kit. These kits are customized for each patient. First a mold is made of your teeth. Using the mold, the lab team creates trays to hold the bleach. While this method may take longer, it is more economical and more convenient for many Orange patients. Teeth whitening results from either method can last from six months to two years.
It is important to know that whitening does not affect existing fillings, veneers, or crowns. It also is temporary and may require follow-up visits to keep them white.
