Teeth consist of a yellow core right under the enamel. When the enamel wears off due to teeth grinding, acidic food, genetics, or natural aging, the yellow layer appears, making the teeth look more and more yellow.
Teeth can also lose their pearly white shine due to stains from certain drinks, irregular brushing, and poor dental hygiene. The only solution is teeth whitening.
How to Get Whiter, Brighter Teeth
Dental hygiene is of utmost importance for a healthy life. Enamel erosion is irreversible. As the enamel starts to fade away, the yellow core (called dentin) starts to surface, making the teeth appear yellow.
Teeth enamel cannot be regrown, as it does not have any living cells. The progression of the problem can be halted, however, with dental treatment and dental hygiene. Teeth whitening can be achieved in three different ways:
• Whitening toothpastes: These kinds of toothpastes have little to no effect on the teeth. Some toothpastes contain the right kind of chemical, but they are not exposed to the teeth long enough to have any kind of effect.
• Do-It-Yourself kits: Many DIY kits with glowing reviews can be found on the market. However, these are not usually tested properly and can be dangerous. They can prove harmful in the hands of inexperienced users, so it is important to follow their instructions carefully.
• Professional treatment: A qualified dental expert like Dr. Miller is the best option for this procedure. Dr. Miller knows the procedure and can guide the patient through the whole process. This process is completely safe if it is done under a registered professional dentist and if the patient follows post-treatment care.
GLO In-Office Professional Teeth Whitening
Guide Light Optics (GLO) is an in-office teeth-whitening treatment that combines GLO warming heat and light with professional-strength whitening gel. This gel can be applied by a dental professional only. This painless treatment gives the patient bright and white teeth in under an hour.
In this treatment, GLO lip treatment is first applied. This is a protective barrier. The GLO whitening gel is spread onto the blue LED light mouthpiece. The patient is invited to bite down on the mouthpiece, and this contact is just enough to let the LED lights warm the photo-activated peroxide paste.
The GLO Brilliant, a patented device, is the only teeth-whitening system to combine LED light with warming GLO heat to accelerate safe hydrogen-peroxide whitening formulation. The technology is clinically proven to whiten teeth without increasing sensitivity and is used in thousands of professional dental offices worldwide.
Arrange Your Whitening
Though teeth whitening is a popular service offered by many professional dentists, it can be a health hazard if done incorrectly. This procedure is offered by many unprofessional individuals who are unqualified to perform the procedure, so it’s important that you find the right medical professional for the job.
