Naturally white teeth communicate cleanliness and health, they also improve your physical appearance making you look more beautiful and striking; with teeth whitening you will steal all the looks in any social setting.

It is important to know that the treatment you need depends on the current state of your teeth. Teeth whitening is not the same for someone who has just finished orthodontic treatment as it is for someone who has had root canal treatment or has a complex oral disease.

There is a home teeth whiteningis one of those we handle at Carlos Acevedo Dental Center, where we take samples of the mouth to make comfortable and very thin splints that you place at home, but do not worry, you have a professional who will guide you to ensure an effective treatment. These splints have been previously filled with a special whitening gel. The treatment can last from 2 to 4 weeks, the results are extraordinary.

Another type of whitening is done with halogen light or LED, before performing this procedure, your dentist should make an evaluation to inform you about how many sessions you need to successfully complete your teeth whitening; also identify if you are suitable for this treatment. The procedure begins with a cleaning of your teeth, measurements will be taken to prepare customized trays that will be used to place the whitening gel so that it is evenly distributed, the trays will not allow the gel to come into contact with the gums. The light energy facilitates the treatment, however, it is not in charge of whitening, the light is only an activator, in fact, in our practice you will find that we also use products that do not require light and the results are excellent.
