The Difference between Teeth Bleaching and Teeth Whitening
Posted by David Brown of Quincy Dentists Family Dentistry

You may have wondered how someone with a dazzling smile managed to maintain their white teeth for so many years. The fact of the matter is that numerous patients are choosing among many options to whiten their smile. This includes teeth bleaching and teeth whitening.

So what are the differences between these two treatments? When teeth are whitened to the point that they are brighter than even their natural color, the process is known as “tooth bleaching”. This whitening method involves the use of a “bleaching” agent such as hydrogen or carbamide peroxide. When patients want to restore their teeth to their original color, the option they choose is teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening is different in that it requires the surface of the teeth to be cleaned. This allows dirt, stains, and other aesthetic features to be removed. With these elements removed, the teeth can be restored to their original color. When you schedule teeth whitening with a dentist in Quincy, you will be treated with a peroxide bleaching gel that is laser-activated. During this process, your gums are coated with a gel to protect against chemical exposure.

Whitening kits purchased from a store contain less potent whitening elements. While they are a less expensive solution, they are not as effective as in-office treatments. In addition, they can cause additional damage and problems when not utilized as recommended.
