Teeth whitening can help teeth become eight or nine shades whiter than before. The exact effectiveness of a teeth whitening procedure depends on the status of the teeth before the procedure.
Is the process harmful to my teeth?
Our teeth whitening procedure does not have any adverse effects in the short term or long term. Teeth whitening involves interacting with the enamel of teeth. Many believe there may be some negative effects. However, it is completely safe and does not alter the enamel in any way.
Is professional teeth whitening painful?
In most cases, a teeth whitening procedure is painless. However, if you have weak enamel, there may be some sensitivity. If that is the case, it should not last for more than a few days.
How long do the results last?
The length of time the results of professional teeth whitening is largely dependent on the way you care for your teeth after the procedure. It is essential to limit the intake of staining foods and drinks, such as wine, coffee and tomato sauce. If you smoke, your teeth may start changing color earlier than those who do not. In general, the results of professional teeth whitening typically last between 6 months to 2 years.
How can I maintain white teeth?
