If you prefer teeth that are immediately whiter right now, Dr. Nguyen has your answer with the in-office Britesmile teeth whitening system. Britesmile uses proprietary technology to whiten your teeth an average of eight shades in a little over an hour while you relax at our office.
What is Britesmile Tooth Whitening?
Britesmile is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin.
What can Cause Tooth Discoloration?
There are many causes. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea or tobacco. During tooth formation, consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.
Who may Benefit from Teeth Whitening?
Just about anyone can benefit from tooth whitening. However, treatment may not be as effective on some as it is for others. Upon an oral exam, Dr. Nguyen can determine if you are a candidate for this procedure, including a shade assessment.
Is Teeth Whitening Becoming more Popular?
Absolutely! A bright, beautiful smile can make a big difference. The Britesmile Whitening System makes it easier and faster than ever before.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
Yes, research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any tooth whitening product, Britesmile is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.
Is there any Difference Between over-the-counter Tooth Whiteners and Britesmile?
Yes! Consulting Dr. Nguyen is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. Over-the-counter tooth whitening strips, brush-on gels and toothpastes take weeks or months to whiten your teeth just a few shades. Britesmile is clinically proven to whiten your teeth eight shades in one hour.
