Teeth whitening sure does seem like a racket, doesn’t it? All those new systems promising amazing results in less time … and what do they actually provide? If you’ve tried over-the-counter teeth whitening you’ve probably been left feeling like you were taken for a ride. Even some professional systems work “so-so.”
At Really Smile Dentistry we have whitening that works. Period. It does what it’s supposed to because our teeth whitening system addresses a lot of the problems that others ones have and fixes them! If you’re looking for teeth whitening that really gets the job done then look no further – it’s right here in Carmel, IN!
Teeth Whitening: What’s The Big Idea?
A lot of things about teeth whitening haven’t changed over time because they don’t need to! The biggest one of those is the whitening gel made from hydrogen peroxide. It works when used correctly, but unfortunately for many whitening systems it doesn’t get that chance!
Hydrogen peroxide whitening gel is very unstable. It needs to be that way to make whitening work, however, because the breakdown into oxygen and water is what makes the whitening actually happen! But because hydrogen peroxide gel is so unstable there are a lot of problems that go along with using it!
One of the biggest issues that face teeth whitening systems is that instability. It’s so sensitive that even your saliva weakens it! For anyone that’s ended up with splotchy, uneven whitening that might be your cause!
How We Fix Whitening Problems
We still use hydrogen peroxide gel but it’s all in how we apply it to your teeth! At your first whitening appointment we take an impression of your mouth which we use to craft custom whitening trays. The trays are designed to keep whitening gel in and lock saliva out, giving you a whitening experience that’s completely effective!
We conduct our whitening sessions in our Carmel office so that we can ensure everything goes exactly as it should. We place the trays in your mouth and let them sit for several minutes to let them do their magic! Once your whitening has completed we’ll clean your mouth out and take a look along with you to determine if you’re happy with the level of results.
You could be leaving our office with a newly brightened set of teeth after just one appointment! If you aren’t completely satisfied with your results we’ll be more than happy to schedule you for a second whitening session. For people with deep or dark stains it can take several treatments to restore your teeth to natural color!
Lots of patients who want whitening are concerned about sensitivity. Sensitivity most commonly results from whitening gels making contact with the gums. Your gums are very sensitive and the whitening gels can irritate them quite a bit, even causing soreness in your teeth!
We combat whitening sensitivity by using our custom-fit whitening trays! These trays form a tight barrier between teeth and gums so that no gel makes contact with anything but teeth! The result is a sensitivity-free and beautifully white smile!
