It’s not unusual for our teeth to discolor through the years as our enamel wears down. Once the enamel wears down, dentin, a yellow substance that makes the core of our teeth, is allowed to show through. This yellow tint to our teeth can be bleached to a shiny white color through various teeth whitening methods.
Teeth Whitening Methods
Our Atlanta dental team at Eisenberg & Bogdanoff Cosmetic & Family Dentistry provides two popular teeth whitening options. The first, in-office teeth whitening, produces a significant color change in your teeth in about an hour. Done in our Atlanta office, this procedure is done by applying a high-concentration peroxide gel on your teeth after they’ve been protected with a special shield.
The second whitening method involves the use of take-home whitening kits. These kits are purchased from our Atlanta dental office and are for use at home. While the strength of the gel use in these kits is lower than the in-office bleaching, it can be used for longer periods of time. For best results, Dr. Eisenberg and Dr. Bogdanoff recommend wearing the trays for a couple hours a day or overnight for a few days, depending on which take-home whitening kits are selected.
