Teeth Whitening in Albuquerque, NM

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that uses a safe, bleach-like chemical to remove tough stains from the surface of your teeth. There are many methods of whitening teeth. Every patient is different, so it's important to consult with your dentist to find the method and frequency of whitening that's most appropriate for you.

Methods of Teeth Whitening

In-office Whitening: This whitening method uses highly concentrated whitening gel. The gel is applied to the teeth by the dentist, and a laser light is also used to enhance and speed up the whitening process. This treatment is ideal for patients who want to whiten their teeth quickly.

Trays with Whitening Gel: This method uses the same type of whitening gel as the at-home kit. The gel is placed in a tray that is custom-made for the patient's mouth. Patients are instructed to apply the gel to the tray and wear it over their teeth for the amount of time recommended by the dentist every day.

Teeth Whitening Strips: This method uses thin plastic strips that are coated with whitening gel. The gel is applied to the teeth, and the plastic strip is placed over the teeth. The gel seeps into the teeth and whitens them.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • You can get whiter teeth that can make your smile look brighter and more attractive. 
  • Having teeth that are whiter and brighter helps boost your self-esteem and make you more approachable.
  • Teeth whitening can reverse the effects of tooth and gum disease by removing plaque and bacteria. 
  • Teeth whitening can help improve your oral hygiene. When the surface stains are removed from your teeth, it's easier to keep them clean. You can brush and floss your teeth more effectively.

Aftercare For Teeth Whitening

  • Even after your teeth have been whitened, you should continue to refrain from consuming stain-causing foods and beverages. 
  • Avoid teeth-damaging habits such as chewing on ice or hard candies, and using tobacco products.
  • Brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day. 
  • Don't forget to use fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash daily.
