Whitening vs Bleaching At Harris Dental

Whitening vs Bleaching At Harris Dental

Everyone would like a beautiful smile with brillian white teeth. That explains why teeth whitening is such a popular cosmetic dental service at Harris Dental in Phoenix.

You hear the terms teeth whitening and teeth bleaching used almost interchangeably, but they mean two different things. Teeth whitener can refer to any product used to remove stains from tooth enamel: toothpaste, DIY strips, and some mouthwashes are safe and affordable and can illuminate teeth with continued, regular use. The extent of whitening varies, and it takes dedicated, scheduled use to see results.

Whitening products that do not contain bleach can usually make teeth two to four shades lighter. These are a good choice for people with sensitive teeth and gums that can react to products containing harsher whitening chemicals. Harris Dental guides pregnant or nursing mothers to choose the non-bleach whitening products.

The term “bleaching” is used to describe a tooth whitening product that contains a form of bleach, either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, in varying concentrations. For best results, teeth bleaching should be done in-office. Bleaching generally gets more noticeable results, sometimes up to seven shades lighter. Intrinsic stains on the dentin, as well as surface stains can be effectively lightened under an experienced dentist’s supervision.

At Harris Dental in Phoenix, we offer at-home and in-office teeth whitening, and other cosmetic dentistry services. Call our patient-oriented team to schedule a consultation!
