Teeth Whitening ImageIt might seem hard to believe, but people have desired whiter teeth for centuries. While there were certainly no whitening stripes or teeth-bleaching agents then, around 3,000 BC “chew sticks” were a popular way of cleaning and scraping debris off teeth. This was the first sign of cleaning and teeth whitening.
Luckily, we’ve come a long way in our dental treatments, making it easy and safe to get professionally whitened teeth in only a short amount of time. If you are considering teeth whitening in Oconomowoc, here are some things you need to know before you come in to get your pearly whites whiter at Bergmann & Hohm Dental.

What makes professional teeth whitening different from commercial products?

If you’ve ever used a commercial whitening product from your local drugstore you may have noticed that the results were very subtle. Also, it may have taken weeks to actually notice the results. Professional teeth whitening, on the other hand, promises a more radiant smile that can brighten teeth up to ten shades whiter with only one treatment. If you’re looking for fast results, professional teeth whitening is a better option. It’s particularly great for those looking to spruce up their smile before a big event.

How long does professional teeth whitening take?

This will very depending upon the type and color of your enamel. Results are often seen after 2 or 3 applications. Your teeth will continue to lighten with further at home applications.

Are there any side effects of teeth whitening?

Some people experience some teeth sensitivity during and after treatment. If you have sensitive teeth, you may want to talk to your Oconomowoc dentist about ways to prevent teeth sensitivity during your whitening session.

How long will my results last? How can I maintain my whiter smile?

This will vary depending on how well you keep up with your new smile. Avoid stain-producing foods like wine, tea, coffee, berries and dark sauces. Also, maintain good oral hygiene and see your dentist for your routine checkups to ensure that your smile remains healthy. You can also talk to us about our professional teeth whitening kit that you can use from the comfort of your own home.

Can I have repeat teeth whitening treatments?

Of course! Particularly if you have more severe stains, you may actually need more than one treatment to get the results you want. However, it’s perfectly safe to get several teeth whitening treatments to maintain your beautiful smile.
