Dr. Terry Vines of Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry is located in the 92373 CA area and provides a myriad of cosmetic dentistry procedures including that of teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is becoming increasingly popular as patients realize the dramatic improvement it can make on a dull, discolored smile. While over-the-counter whitening products are available, patients who purchase these and use them find they are not nearly as effective as whitening treatments offered by dental professionals.
Dr. Terry Vines offers patients two primary methods of whitening the teeth, including in-office power bleaching and take-home whitening trays. Each technique has its own advantages and disadvantages and patients are encouraged to consult with their dentist to determine the most appropriate treatment for them.
In-office power bleaching is one of the most effective ways of brightening the smile using the Zoom! Advanced Power System. In just one session, approximately an hour in length, patients can enjoy a rejuvenating treatment. Protective gel is applied to the gum tissue, whitening agent is administered, and then a specialized light is used to activate the chemicals and provide amazing, unsurpassed results in about 60 minutes.
For patients who want to whiten in the comfort of their own home, take-home whitening trays are also available. These are far superior to those available over-the-counter as they are custom made for patients and include a special carbamide peroxide available in various concentrations. This chemical is FDA-approved to lighten natural tooth enamel in a way that enhances brilliance. Dr. Terry Vines consults with patients to determine the best concentration for their specific needs.
While teeth whitening is completely safe and effective, some patients may experience some mild sensitivity or irritation of the gum tissue. This is short-term and will go away within several days after the in initial treatment.
