Teeth Whitening Q & A
How does teeth whitening work?
Dr. Barden specializes in the Venus White Max whitening treatment. This whitening product contains peroxide, which releases the molecules of oxygen that create tooth stains.
Venus White Max is a series of three or four 15-minute treatments. This treatment is performed in-office at Inspiring Smiles and can boast results right away. In some cases, patients see drastic changes in the color of their teeth in just a few days. For others, the treatment might take a few months to show results.
Depending on the color and texture of your enamel, your results will vary. When teeth are more yellow than grey, you have the best chance of seeing drastic results. Enamel that is grey makes it harder for the peroxide to break down tooth stains. You may have to receive the treatment a few different times before results are noticeable.
Can I whiten my teeth at home?
Yes. Inspiring Smiles offers Venus White Ultra take-home whitening kits, which can be a more affordable solution for faded or stained teeth. This kit is a once-a-day treatment that you perform for up to seven days.
The kit comes with disposable whitening trays that are pre-filled with the whitening gel, so all you have to do is secure them into place over your teeth. Dr. Barden provides you with more detailed instructions when you are ready to whiten your teeth at home with this safe, effective, and comfortable take-home whitening kit.
How often do I need to get my teeth whitened?
Unfortunately, whitening treatments are not permanent. Every day, we expose our teeth to foods and beverages that may cause staining, such as coffee and wine. In some cases, those that consume these foods or those that smoke can see whitening fade after just one month. Those that avoid these foods and habits can wait up to six months to one year for touch-up treatments.
A white smile is a confident smile. Whether you need a touch-up or a full smile revamp, Dr. Barden can help. He will walk you through the entire teeth whitening treatment to make sure you are completely comfortable and happy. For a brighter smile, call today or schedule an appointment online now.
