Fort Collins Teeth Whitening
Wine, coffee, smoking, and age are all reasons why our teeth begin to lose that luxurious white sheen. When this happens, it can knock our confidence, preventing us from smiling as much as we used to.
Fortunately, there is a solution. Here at Xanadu Med Spa, Fort Collins, CO, we offer an in-office whitening procedure. Our teeth whitening process can increase the level of whiteness in healthy teeth by up to seven shades.
If the stain on your teeth or the color of your teeth bothers you and you would like to speak to one of our dental office experts, give us a call today to discuss which whitening solution is the perfect fit for you.
After just one in-office teeth whitening session, you can achieve a brighter smile, without the marks left by tooth decay or the natural aging process.
Call us today at 970-591-7919 for a complimentary consultation and achieve that bright white smile you’ve always dreamed of!
What are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening Treatment?
Here at Xanadu, Fort Collins, CO, we use the best in-office whitening technology on the market; this ensures:
An increase in brightness of up to seven shades brighter in natural teeth.
A safe procedure that is less irritating to the surrounding gums.
Whiter teeth that stay white for longer.
Much quicker results than take-home whitening trays and whitening toothpastes.
During your session, your practitioner will apply a special whitening gel to your teeth. Next, we will use a lamp to activate the whitening agent and hydrogen peroxide, which increases oxygen in your teeth enamel, removing stains and increasing brightness.
Who Can Get Teeth Whitening?
The best candidates for this type of teeth whitening procedure are those that have strong, healthy teeth without gum disease. If your teeth are a yellow tone, they are most likely to respond well to treatment.
Teeth whitening treatments aren’t the right option for everyone, and certain people cannot undergo this procedure:
Pregnant and lactating women.
People who have restorations such as fillings, implants, crowns, and dental bridges.
Children under 14 years of age.
Patients with gum disease, cavities, and exposed roots.
People who are allergic to peroxide.
People with sensitive teeth.
For the above, you might want to consider speaking to a Fort Collins dentist instead.
As it is noninvasive, most other patients will be able to receive this treatment. If you are someone who has particularly sensitive teeth, your practitioner may use a weaker concentration of gel if you tell them.
How Long Does Professional Teeth Whitening Take?
On average, the teeth whitening processes we offer will require around an hour of your time each session.
What Results Should I Expect After One Teeth Whitening Treatment?
Everyone will react differently to the treatment, but on average, our customers see an increase of around four shades brighter after the first session.
By choosing to get professional whitening from Xanadu Med Spa, you are making the right choice. Paired with good dental hygiene, your results may last years before needing another session. Avoiding staining drinks like red wine and coffee will give you the best chance at long-lasting results. A proper brushing routine will also help keep your smile looking radiant.
This doesn’t mean you have to give up these drinks full stop; some customers move to drinking through a straw instead, which helps bypass your bright new smile.
Does Teeth Whitening Make Your Teeth Sensitive?
Immediately after your teeth whitening procedure, you may experience an increase in sensitivity for a short period. This is due to the peroxide removing the stains from deep enamel layers where your nerves are close by.
The peroxide causes the nerves to react, and this can cause some discomfort until they settle down. Avoid ice-cold drinks or boiling hot drinks for a few days to avoid this.
We also advise you to avoid smoking and drinking coffee and wine for as long as possible after your appointment. In the days following a teeth whitening procedure, your teeth will stain a lot easier.
Intrinsic Discoloration vs. Extrinsic Discoloration
Understanding the two types of staining and discoloration is important when seeking that brighter smile.
Intrinsic discoloration is staining that happens deep inside the tooth. This type of discoloration shows up as small spots and usually happens due to erosion of enamel or tooth injury.
Extrinsic discoloration is the most common and happens as a result of staining foods, drinks, and smoking. This type of discoloration happens within the enamel layers of the teeth.
This is the best kind of discoloration to target with teeth whitening gel as it lifts this surface layer of discoloration by removing the tiny particles stuck in the enamel.
It is best to whiten your teeth in stages over a longer period of time. This prevents your smile from looking too white to people who know you.
