Las Vegas Dental Bleaching – Teeth Whitening
What Can You Expect from Dental Bleaching?
Teeth with severe discoloration and deep yellowing can only become about two shades whiter than what they currently are. However, teeth that are not severely yellowed can become much whiter than they are prior to the bleaching process, perhaps even as white as the white area of the eyes.
Expected Results from Dental Bleaching
Teeth that have the fewest stains or the lightest level of staining can expect a change of as much as three shades lighter once they undergo dental bleaching performed by a Las Vegas dentist. However, some patients may not experience any change at all in the whiteness of their teeth, even after undergoing dental bleaching. This is typically because the teeth are too severely stained or the condition of the tooth enamel prohibits proper bleaching.
Today’s dental bleaching agents are more sophisticated than the earlier versions of these solutions that came onto the market years ago. In particular, modern dental bleaching agents are safer to use on the teeth and they produce better results. Since they are more effective than their predecessors, today’s dental bleaching agents produce whiter looking teeth for most patients.
Older bleaching agents could create damage on the existing enamel of the teeth on which they were being used. Today, that worry has been minimized. However, in some cases, patients may experience minor tooth sensitivity after the bleaching process. In most instances, this reaction is temporary and goes away soon after the treatments have stopped.
