Smile if Your Teeth Are Bright | Accent by Chubb

  1. 1. Smile if Your Teeth Are Bright Tried-and true bleach trays are back!
  2. 2. In the last decade, celebs with startlingly white chompers have ruled big and small screens. Like the adage that you can never be too rich or too thin, it seems your teeth can’t be too white, either. The trend has led to nearly instant-gratification laser teeth whitening in dentists’ offices, and spread to shopping malls, where (presided over by a doctor) technicians use a high-powered solution and hot lights to produce stunning results in less than an hour. Like any emerging technology, the proliferation of whitening systems has forced prices lower and lower.
  3. 3. Even at mass appeal pricing, the profit margins for dental offices are impressive. So why are some dentists sticking with the tried-and-true bleach trays? Dr. Gregory Oman, DDS PC, whose busy Utah practice doesn’t perform laser teeth whitening at all, explains that the white glow you see right after a laser session is the desiccation of your enamel; once moisture returns to your teeth in a day or so, the polar white shade starts to fade.
  4. 4. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, in-office (or laser) whitening can be a helpful “jumpstart” to the proven long-term technique of home bleaching with professionally constructed mouthguard trays and gel. In-Office Whitening
  5. 5. Dr. Oman’s office takes impressions from which fabricated custom vinyl trays are made (the fit is important: bleach can leak out from ill-fitting trays and get dissolved by saliva). A carbamide peroxide gel is placed in the trays, which you’ll wear for one to two hours for up to a month of daily use. Carbamide peroxide gel is the most common bleaching agent, in a concentration ranging from 10 to 16 percent, though stronger solutions don’t seem to produce whiter smiles or work faster, since they still take time to penetrate the surface.
  6. 6. “Laser” whitening is actually a misnomer. Most treatments use an ultraviolet light to assist a peroxide gel in whitening your teeth by oxidation. The idea is that they accelerate the breakdown of oxygen molecules, from the peroxide, into reactive oxygen atoms, which denature colored proteins in the tooth’s surface. Heating the tooth like this pushes water out of the tooth, drying the enamel and making it appear whiter.
  7. 7. Great for last-minute events, but a clinical study showed that nearly half the initial change in color from a one-hour intensive light whitening may be lost within seven days. There are many options for getting and maintaining your bright smile. Your dentist can help you decide what’s best for you.
