Here at Woodbury Dental Arts Dr. Kamel work closely with patients to identify the right whitening solution for each concern. For the best results, we offer the Sapphire Whitening system. In many ways this is the superior option for people seeking a simple way to get brilliantly white teeth.
A Closer Look at the Science of Whitening
Tooth discoloration can be caused by a variety of factors, including:
Because tooth discoloration is so common there are a variety of ways to approach it. Tooth whitening pastes can be bought over the counter at drug stores or department stores. These are prepared at home and applied according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Whitening occurs gradually over the course of several applications. Whitening strips work in a similar way. A preparation of hydrogen peroxide and other ingredients coats the strips which the patient can then place on their teeth. People like being able to conduct whitening treatments in the privacy of their own home but are sometimes dissatisfied with the results. This is because the preparation strength of these over the counter products is simply not as strong as what can be obtained from a dentist.
We use the Sapphire Teeth Whitening system which makes use of a much stronger hydrogen peroxide solution and a powerful lamp that emits specific wavelengths of light to activate the solution. The results are whiter, brighter teeth with less hassle.
