If you’ve ever wanted to crank your smile up a notch or two, then we have just the treatment for you. Cape Vista Dental offers you quality teeth whitening.
The brand we use here in our office is Venus, an amazing professional-strength formula that can deliver you strikingly beautiful results.
Why Come to the Dentist for Whitening?
The answer to that question lies in the strength of the formula being used.
You may have used over-the-counter treatments in the past and been fairly disappointed by the results. Unfortunately, the fault for that doesn’t lie in the method or the theory behind the formula but in the concentration of the key ingredient.
You see, most whitening systems use some form of peroxide to break down stains, but over-the-counter products can only be sold with a small percentage of peroxide. However, if a dentist prepares your whitening gel, we have safe and properly handled access to much higher concentrations, which enable us to deliver more dramatic results.
How Does Whitening Work?
The peroxide which forms the basis of most whitening systems is made up of two oxygen atoms and two hydrogen atoms. (H2O2). Due to the way that hydrogen and oxygen prefer to react, peroxide easily breaks down into water (H2O) and Oxygen (O).
The oxygen is what really does the trick. It starts mingling with the teeth molecules. When it finds a stain, it reacts with it. This breaks the stain into different parts—just like the peroxide broke into different parts—and makes it something new.
With the stain broken down, your teeth become whiter.
In-Office or At Home
Coming in to have our professional staff do a whitening session will give you fast and safe results. However, sitting around in a chair isn’t for everyone.
If you need an alternative, we do have take-home kits that we can prepare especially for you. This will combine the benefits of professional preparation and formula strength with the convenience of at-home application.
You can whiten on your own time and still get incredible results!
