What is the best professional tooth whitening system to use in Birmingham?
There are two main types of dentist-supervised tooth whitening systems available in Birmingham. In order to determine the best choice for your teeth, schedule, and budget, you need to understand the differences in the systems.
Both systems use a bleaching agent containing peroxide. Birmingham dentists who offer professional in-office teeth whitening, use a whitening gel with a high concentration of peroxide. Some in-office tooth whitening systems, like Zoom whitening, use a light that causes the tooth bleaching agent to work faster. When the light is shined at teeth on which the whitening gel is applied, it causes the peroxide to break down into free radicals, which are active oxygen molecules. This process naturally occurs without the light, but the light makes it happen faster. That is why you can get whiter teeth in just one hour.
Most Birmingham cosmetic dentistry practices also offer take home tooth whitening systems. Although these procedures take a bit longer to work, they achieve similar results. For many patients, this is the most affordable teeth whitening system.
