At-Home Teeth Whitening
Has your pearly, white smile been affected by yellowed teeth?
Reasons for yellow teeth include constant use of dark coloured food and beverages like coffee and red wine, natural aging of tooth, smoking or any tobacco use, accidents, and root canal therapy.
At Woodlawn Dental, Dr. Joshi offer at-home teeth whitening product to our patients. At-home teeth whitening kits are fairly simple to use, given that patients follow guidelines or contact us with any questions about the DIY teeth whitening process.
Most teeth whitening systems use a peroxide-based formula. When exposed to the air and water in your mouth, hydrogen peroxide breaks down into its component parts: water and oxygen. The oxygen molecules sink deep into the staining on your teeth, where they react with the stain molecules.
Some patients may experience heightened tooth sensitivity or mild tooth or gum sensitivity during treatment, but these symptoms are only temporary and disappear within a few days after the treatment is finished.
