If you want to refresh your smile quickly and dramatically, a teeth whitening treatment in Weymouth, MA can give you the results you are looking for without having to wait weeks. At Weymouth Dental Associates, we can provide you with a safe and effective whitening treatment that will give you a brighter, more beautiful smile.
The outer layer of the teeth is called the enamel, which is white. It can get stained, however, or wear away to reveal the yellower dentin layer underneath. Over-the-counter whitening treatments can only target surface stains. Professional treatments such as the one you’ll find at our dentist near you in Weymouth, MA utilize a stronger concentration of the active ingredient, enabling them to penetrate the enamel and break up stains underneath. This makes the stains less visible and helps the natural whiteness of the teeth to become more visible.
A teeth whitening procedure at Weymouth Dental Associates takes less than one hour, so you can make just one appointment and leave happy with a brighter, whiter smile. Your dentist will start the visit by cleaning your teeth; the whitening solution is more effective on a clean surface. Then, a barrier will be placed around the gums. This keeps them protected as the solution can be irritating. The whitening solution will then be painted onto the teeth. It is activated with a special light. Your dentist will keep applying the solution and using the light until the desired shade has been reached on the teeth. You may receive an at-home whitening kit at the end of your appointment to help you maintain your results at home.
Unfortunately, this treatment does not work for all patients. You will need to have a consultation with your dentist before undergoing the treatment. For example, it is most effective on yellowed teeth but may not work on teeth that have become brown. Your dentist may recommend a different cosmetic dentistry procedure to help you achieve a whiter smile.
