What types of Teeth Whitening options exist in Marbella?
In-office professional teeth whitening is typically the most effective method of whitening teeth. It is performed by a dentist or dental hygienist, and it involves the use of a bleaching agent, such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, to lighten the color of the teeth. The bleaching agent is applied to the teeth and activated using a special light or laser. In-office treatments typically take about an hour to complete and can produce dramatic results in a single visit.
At-home teeth whitening kits are also available and can be purchased over-the-counter or through a dentist. These kits typically include a bleaching agent and a mouth tray that is filled with the bleaching agent and placed over the teeth. At-home treatments take longer to produce results and may not be as effective as in-office treatments, but they can be a convenient and less expensive option for some patients.
It is important to note that teeth whitening is not permanent and the effects of the treatment may fade over time. To maintain the results of teeth whitening, it is important to avoid foods and beverages that can stain teeth and to practice good oral hygiene. Your dentist at R&H DENTAL can provide you with specific instructions on how to care for your teeth after a whitening treatment.
