Teeth Whitening Q & A

Who is a candidate for teeth whitening?

Due to time or improper care, teeth can become discolored or lose their luster and shine. While it is very common, discoloration can often negatively impacts a person’s confidence when they show their smile. Fortunately, the team at Pūr Dentistry offers a quick and easy solution to whiten your teeth and regain your confidence. While some people may benefit from whitening more than others, almost anyone who wants to improve the look of their smile is a candidate, regardless of their age.

What does the teeth whitening process involve?

First, an impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “splint” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The team at Pūr Dentistry then provides you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear splints. You will use the material for about 3-4 hours every night for a week or two to achieve significant whitening.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Yes. The procedure for whitening teeth that Pūr Dentistry provides is very safe. Over-the-counter bleaching agents can be purchased at drug stores and pharmacies. However, these products can be harmful to the gums and teeth, so it’s better to use products recommended by the experts at Pūr Dentistry.

What is Boost! whitening?

If you want to see even more dramatic results in a shorter time, you may want to consider Boost! whitening. Offering both in-office and take-home options, Boost! whitening can lighten your teeth up to six or eight shades in as little as a weekend or several in-office visits. Following proper care, such as flossing and brushing and simple follow-up treatments, Boost! whitening can last a very long time. In addition, Boost! whitening has been shown to be safe and effective, although it is not recommended for children under 13 years of age or pregnant or lactating women.
