Even if you have a healthy smile, dental stains can dramatically affect your appearance. Dental stains typically result from food and drink, although they can also appear because of smoking, genetics, medications, and age. Fortunately, it is easier than ever to restore your white smile, thanks to a variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments. Dr. Van proudly offers Sinsational Smile®, a highly effective technique that takes just 20 minutes. The treatment is safe and involves negligible discomfort. In addition, with proper maintenance, your results could last for years. To learn more about Sinsational Smile® teeth whitening, contact or visit our Mountain View dental practice today.
How Does Sinsational Smile® Work?
When you choose undergo treatment, Dr. Van will provide a unique, patented whitening tray. The pre-made, silicone appliance will fit comfortably around your teeth, allowing your jaw to rest comfortably throughout your treatment. It will be filled with a peroxide-based whitening gel. While you wear the tray, the peroxide will penetrate through your dental enamel, breaking apart the chemical bonds between stains. Dr. Van will also use a special LED light to activate the gel and provide faster, more dramatic results. After your brief treatment, your smile could be several shades lighter. Typically, you will only need one treatment, but in some cases you may require several office visits to achieve optimal results.
Dr. Van will also provide a whitening pen to help you maintain your enhanced smile. Though Sinsational Smile® is highly effective, it will not prevent future discoloration. Nevertheless, when you use your touch-up pen as instructed by your dentist, you could enjoy a beautiful smile for years to come.
Are You a Candidate for This Type of Whitening?
Sinsational Smile® can be an excellent option if you have extrinsic stains on your dental enamel. However, if you have internal discoloration, it will not be an effective choice. Intrinsic stains typically appear because of certain medications or because of dental infection. Located deep within your teeth, they are immune to most whitening treatments. Dr. Van can recommend another treatment, such as porcelain veneers, to enhance your smile.
To qualify for Sinsational Smile®, you should have overall good dental health. If you have decay or gum disease, Dr. Van will treat these conditions before recommending a cosmetic procedure. After appropriate care, you may be a great candidate for teeth whitening. As a candidate, you should be at least 14 years old, and you should not be pregnant or nursing.
Why Choose Sinsational Smile®?
The most obvious reason to consider Sinsational Smile is that the treatment is highly effective. Your brighter smile will illuminate your whole face and improve your self-confidence. The treatment also offers additional benefits:
- Safe with dental restorations: Sinsational Smile® will not harm your crowns or veneers. However, whitening treatment will not lighten your dental restorations.
Convenience: Your initial treatment, as well as your touch-ups, will be easy and hassle-free. The first appointment is very brief, and you can use the touch-up pen anywhere.
- Minimal discomfort: Most patients undergo Sinsational Smile® without any discomfort at all. Patients who report any irritation say that it is a mild tingling feeling that typically subsides once they rinse their teeth.
