Teeth Whitening - Tampa Chairside Whitening - All Ages Dental Spa
What is Chairside teeth whitening?
Boost is a teeth whitening process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin.
What causes discoloration of teeth?
There are many causes. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea, colas, tobacco, red wine, etc. During the formation of teeth, consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.
Who may benefit from Chairside Teeth Whitening?
Almost anyone. However, teeth whitening may not be as effective or some as it is for others. We can determine if you are a viable candidate for chair side teeth whitening through a thorough oral exam, including a teeth shade assessment.
Do many people whiten their teeth?
More people whiten their teeth than you might imagine. A bright, sparkling smile can make a big difference for everyone. The Boost Teeth Whitening System makes it easier and faster than ever before.
Is Boost Teeth Whitening safe?
Yes, extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision
of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider teeth whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any teeth whitening product, Boost Teeth Whitening is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.
How long do the results last?
By following some simple post teeth whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend flossing, brushing twice daily, and occasional touch-ups with take-home gel. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available through our office.
Is there any difference between over-the-counter teeth whiteners and Chairside Teeth Whitening?
Yes! Consulting your dental professional is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. Plus, over-the-counter teeth whitening strips, brush-on gels and toothpastes take weeks or months to whiten your teeth just a few shades. Boost is clinically proven to whiten your teeth nine to twelve shades in 60 minutes. Only a dentist can get your teeth this white, this fast.
How does the Boost Teeth Whitening In-Office System work?
With Boost activated teeth whitening gel's active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide gel is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged.
What does a patient experience during the Chairside Teeth Whitening procedure?
During the teeth whitening procedure, patients may comfortably watch television or listen to music. We offer blankets, pillows back massagers, etc. for your comfort.
Are there any side effects to Chairside Teeth Whitening?
With teeth whitening some people experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after completion of the teeth whitening treatment. We recommend flouride to be applied after the procedure to help decrease sinsitvity and to help maintain the desired shade for a longer period of time.
How is the procedure controlled?
The teeth whitening procedure requires that all soft tissue in and around the mouth be protected. The clinician is required to monitor the procedure to insure any exposed skin or tissue is isolated and protected. With Boost no light is necessary so no special precautions need apply for special medications.
How long does the In-Office Whitening take?
The complete teeth whitening procedure takes just over an hour. The teeth whitening begins with a preparation period followed by 60 minutes of whitening. A cleaning is recommended prior to the actual Teeth Whitening session.
