Why Teeth Whitening is Best Left to Professionals

Basically, there are two kinds of stains on teeth, extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains are located on the outside of the tooth’s enamel. Whitening toothpaste, strips, and mouth washes can have some affect on these types of stains. Home applied systems can’t get to the heart of the stain. They generally are disappointing and can even damage teeth in some cases.

Intrinsic stains are underneath the enamel and the only effective method to reach them is having a cosmetic dentist like Dr. Pyle apply a special product. These products are safe and they deliver amazing, long lasting results.

At Dr. Pyle’s Weston office, two systems are used:

  • ZOOM: This technique is a teeth bleaching accomplished in the dentist’s chair. Lips and gums are protected, and the ZOOM gel is applied to the teeth. An overhead UV light is focused on the gel which activates the whitening agent that enter the enamel and dentin, bleaching the colored substances while leaving the structure of the teeth intact. The procedure involves three applications with a 15 minute wait time between each. Results can be dramatic.
  • Opalescence: This process is very similar except no light is used. The lips and gums are protected then the gel is applied to each tooth. Wait time is 20 minutes between applications rather than 15 but only two applications are required.

Regardless of the technique you elect, count on about an hour for the treatment. Most of that time will be spent watching TV or listening to music.
