Patients dealing with discoloration or staining of teeth can brighten their smiles through teeth bleaching treatments. Dental bleaching is different from teeth whitening in that it whitens teeth beyond their natural color. Bleaching looks different depending on where you seek out the service, but generally dental bleaching uses ingredients like hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. 

If you’re looking for reliable dental bleaching treatment, you can count on Dr. Marino & Associates to transform your smile using the safest and most effective materials on the market.

Dental Bleaching Treatment | An Overview

The whiteness of a tooth depends on both the reflection and scattering of light off of its outer layer, or the tooth’s enamel. Whitening procedures provide a refreshed appearance through abrasion, lasers, chemical means, mild acid and light, for example.

In Office Treatment

If you visit your dentist for dental bleaching, there are several different ways the procedure can be completed. Oftentimes, the dentist will begin by etching your teeth with an acid solution and then applying an oxidizing agent, like hydrogen peroxide, to your enamel. What does an oxidizing agent do? The hydrogen peroxide releases oxygen on the teeth and helps destroy bacteria. In addition to this agent being used for dental bleaching, it can also treat gum disease.

Once the preparation is complete, your teeth are exposed to a bright laser that hastens the dental bleaching. Traditionally, this form of dental bleaching took 3-4 sessions to achieve the desired result. However, newer technologies have allowed for just one session that uses concentrated chemicals to get you the results you want.

At Home Bleaching

At home dental bleaching is another option when it comes to transforming your smile. For this type of bleaching, your dentist will create a custom mouthpiece that holds the bleaching chemicals. You then apply the materials to the mouthpiece and put it on for 30 minutes- 2 hours per day, depending on your dentist’s recommendation. Within a few weeks, your dental bleaching treatment will be complete.

Available Teeth Whitening Treatments From Dr. Marino & Associates and Dr. Nassif & Associates

Dr. Marino & Associates offers two premier teeth whitening options. Patients can choose from Opalescence Boost, an in-office procedure, or Opalescence Go, a professional-quality at-home whitening system. 

Opalescence Boost is our in-office teeth whitening treatment that takes less than one hour. Our staff ensures your procedure is comfortable and delivers lasting results. Once the teeth whitening is completed, we send you home with a 10-pack of Opalescence teeth whitening trays for you to maintain whitening habits at home. 

The at-home teeth whitening option we offer is called Opalescence Go, which uses teeth whitening trays with gel that you apply and insert into your mouth. Opalescence Go is considered professional-grade, and delivers similar results to an in-office teeth whitening. Best of all, you can get results using the treatment for less than 30 minutes a day for 5 to 10 days.

Some patients are wary of teeth whitening due to increased sensitivity. For some people, whitening does induce sensitivity. That’s why it’s important to talk with your dentist before undergoing a whitening treatment, and get the advice and recommendations you need based on your teeth and dental health.

There are a few steps you can take to help prevent sensitivity during the teeth whitening process. Using a soft-bristle toothbrush is a good first step, as well as using toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth. It also helps to steer clear of acidic beverages and foods from your diet when possible.  

If you continue to experience sensitivity or any type of pain, talk with the trusted dentists at Dr. Marino & Associates. We are here to help you get the results you are seeking without any discomfort.

Teeth Bleaching Before and After | How Long Do the Results Last?

The results of dental bleaching treatments are not permanent. Depending on both a patient’s habits and hygiene, whitening results can last for more than one year. 

When you use Opalescence for teeth whitening, you’ll be impressed with the stable results this treatment provides. There are a few factors that may shorten the length of time your results last, such as genetics, diet, and age. Certain medicines can also shorten the results, as well as habits like smoking. 

Fortunately, if you want to maintain the results of your teeth whitening, there are touch-up treatments you can get quickly that keep your teeth bright. It also helps to practice a healthy, balanced diet and drink plenty of water. The act of drinking water itself is great for keeping your teeth white, because it washes away bacteria and promotes healthy saliva production.

As always, brushing and flossing regularly are important not only to maintain teeth whitening, but for your overall dental health. Visiting the dentist regularly for check-ups is important as well. Whether you’re seeking teeth whitening, dental bleaching, or a range of dental and facial services, you’ll find it here.
