TEETH WHITENING SERVICES
Teeth whitening is a highly effective method of lightening the natural teeth color without taking out any of the tooth surface. It may not make a drastic color change, but the existing teeth shade will surely be lightened. You might want to get your teeth whitened due to a number of reasons. One such reason is that we do not all have naturally sparkling white teeth. Some people may be born with a yellowish tint of color. Also, age is can gradually dull teeth color.
The food that you eat can be a major culprit in staining your teeth. Food and drink such as blackcurrant, coffee, and red wine fall into this category. Tartar on your teeth can have a negative effect on teeth color. Certain medications or tiny cracks in the teeth can also cause staining.
A very common method used in teeth whitening is professional bleaching. During teeth bleaching, your dentist or a member of the dental team will use a rubber shield to protect the gums before applying teeth whitening gel. After applying the liquid dam gel, the whitening product, usually comprised of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, will be applied onto your teeth.
Another teeth whitening method we have available for you at URBN Dental is Laser Whitening or Power Whitening. It is a method of painless cosmetic teeth whitening. In this method, a liquid rubber dam is put over your teeth to serve as a protection for your gums, after which a bleaching product is then applied onto your teeth. The chemical is activated when a light or laser is shined on the teeth. This laser or light acts as a catalyst and increases the rate of reaction of the whitening product. This, in turn, make the color change happen fast. With laser or power whitening, your teeth color will be improved and will become up to 6 shades brighter. This form of teeth whitening is, however, more expensive than professional bleaching.
The result of your teeth whitening can remain intact for up to three years. This however is dependent on your personal habits. People who smoke or consume food or drinks that can stain the teeth may have poorer result in the long run.
A few symptoms might occur after teeth whitening treatment such as sensitivity, sore throat, or slight discomfort in the gums. Fortunately these side effects are not serious and usually resolve within a short period of time.

I am not the biggest fan of the dentist, however this was the BEST dentist experience I have ever had! Everyone was so kind and I got everything I needed done in one visit!
Excellent service. Great first impression! Best cleaning I've had in several years, my mouth feels amazing. They even took the time to show me how to brush more effectively. My teeth are back to being pearly white.
They were very prompt and professional. I felt very comfortable in the visit. They have good exam specials without any hidden fees. I have found me a permanent dentist office. Thanks URBN staff.
