Brighter, Whiter Smile

Brighter, Whiter Smile

Question: I want to whiten my teeth. What is the difference between the whitening my dental office can perform and the whitening kits I would buy in a store?

Tooth whitening is very popular today. It is an affordable and quick technique that often times dramatically enhances a person’s smile. Many teeth whitening systems are available – these include whitening toothpastes, over-the counter gels, strips and trays, and whitening agents obtained from a dentist. Dr. Kuntz can also give you information on professional whitening treatments done in-office such as Zoom which can whiten teeth up to 8+ shades in an hour. This is dramatically whiter and faster than the standard trays, strips or gels.

Teeth Whitening

In general, individuals who are good candidates for tooth whitening will obtain the best results from the whitening products obtained from a dental professional. Teeth whitening is ideal for people who have healthy gums, minimal crowns/bridges, posterior fillings or minimally restored teeth, no dental recession or sensitivity (as whitening agents can sometimes irritate the gums). Individuals with yellow tones to their teeth respond very well to tooth whitening. Individuals who have dark brown or gray tones to their teeth may be a better candidate for other cosmetic procedures, such as porcelain veneers or dental crowns. Talk with Dr. Kuntz to find out if you are a good candidate for tooth whitening.
