Teeth Whitening

A bright and confident smile is something we all strive for in today’s society. A whiter tooth equals a more attractive smile, improving your self-esteem and boosting your overall appearance. However, it’s no secret that yellowish or dull teeth can occur due to several factors in our lives. If you have been looking for a quick and non-invasive solution to whiten your teeth, Aspire Dental Care PLLC in Mattapoisett, Massachusetts, has a solution known as teeth whitening.

What is Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a standard dental procedure aimed at improving the appearance of teeth by reducing discoloration and staining. This process employs bleaching agents, mainly hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which break stains into smaller pieces, making the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter.


Types of Teeth Whitening

In-office Teeth Whitening

In-office whitening is a professional, quick, and reliable solution that can give you a whiter smile in just one visit. Before the procedure, Dr. Sathvik Seshadri or Dr. Shikha Chopra will evaluate your teeth’ condition and determine if you’re a good fit for this method.

Dr. Sathvik Seshadri or Dr. Shikha Chopra will apply a potent whitening gel to your teeth containing more concentrated bleaching agents than over-the-counter products. To activate the bleach, we will expose your teeth to a special light that accelerates the whitening process. It usually takes about an hour, and you’ll see immediate, remarkable results.

Take-home Teeth Whitening

The take-home teeth whitening option is a less expensive and more comfortable way to whiten your teeth. It involves wearing custom-made trays continuously for a few weeks. Like in-office whitening, Dr. Sathvik Seshadri or Dr. Shikha Chopra will take an impression of your teeth to create a custom fit tray, holding a lower concentration of bleaching agents.

The trays are worn overnight or for a shorter time, depending on your dentist’s recommendation. While take-home whitening takes longer to achieve results than in-office treatment, it’s less expensive and more convenient for many patients and provides noticeable results over time.


Taking Care of Your Whitened Smile

Whichever whitening method you choose, taking good care of your teeth afterward is crucial to maintaining the results. Vital steps to maintain your smile and ensure your brightened teeth, we encourage you to do the following:

  • Brush and floss your teeth regularly to remove surface stains and plaque
  • Avoid tobacco, coffee, red wine, and other foods and drinks that can stain your teeth
  • Use a straw when drinking dark-colored liquids
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Touch up your teeth every 6-12 months, depending on your teeth condition


Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Whitening your teeth provides many benefits in addition to an improved appearance. Advantages include:

  1. Enhanced Confidence: Smiling has never felt more effortless with a whitened smile, significantly boosting your self-esteem and confidence. 
  2. Reversal Aging: Whiter teeth can also make you look younger and healthier, as yellowish teeth are often associated with old age. 
  3. A Healthier Smile: Teeth whitening can eliminate tough stains caused by foreign substances or bacterial build-up that lead to discoloration.
  4. Long-lasting Results: Professional teeth whitening can last up to a year or more.
