As the holiday spirit takes over, it’s natural to desire to look and feel your best. Among the many ways to sparkle, outshining with an impressive, snow-white smile tops the chart. Located in Costa del Este – Panama City, our dental clinic excels in teeth whitening services. It’s the ideal solution you’ve been looking for to achieve a gleaming holiday smile.
Why Teeth Whitening?
Over time, it’s normal for our teeth to lose their natural whiteness. Factors like drinking tea, coffee, red wine, and smoking can cause discoloration. Some people may also experience staining under the tooth surface referred to as intrinsic staining. Thankfully, the professional teeth whitening treatments we offer can significantly improve these stains, giving you a healthier and brighter smile.
Teeth whitening for Christmas in Panama: Treatment, Types and Prices
Types of Teeth Whitening Treatments
We offer two types of professional teeth whitening treatments:
If you opt for teeth whitening at our dental clinic, we will start by looking at a shade guide to find your teeth before-shade. From there, we will help you choose what you want your after color to look like. We will then cover your gums to protect them from the bleaching agent and then apply the whitening gel to the front of your teeth. Lastly, we will place a special light that activates the whitening gel over your teeth and let it work its magic.
In just 45 minutes, your teeth will look significantly whiter.
If you would rather whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home, that’s definitely okay. We offer an easy to use take-home kit that provides you with the amazing results you can achieve in our office, but at home. The treatment takes longer to complete as it gradually whitens your teeth instead of all at once. Before we can send you home with a kit, we need to take impressions of your teeth so we can give you a custom whitening tray. At home, you will apply the whitening gel to the trays and then wear them to sleep every night for two weeks or until you reach your desired shade. We also offer a higher concentration gel that only requires you to leave it on for 30 minutes per day. In no time, you will have a smile as white as snow!
Preparing for the Procedure
Before any whitening procedure, it’s important to have a thorough dental check-up and cleaning. This ensures your teeth are free from plaque and tartar that may affect the result of the treatment. Remember, whitening is much more effective on a healthy mouth!
After the whitening procedure, your teeth may feel a bit sensitive. This is temporary and will fade away within a few days. Avoid food and beverages that may stain your teeth for at least 24 hours after the treatment.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Apart from aesthetic benefits, teeth whitening can boost your self-esteem and make you more comfortable in social situations. Your radiant smile will undoubtedly add a pinch of glitter to the festive season!
What foods can I eat during teeth whitening?
Before undergoing any teeth whitening procedure, actively seeking to prevent and reduce layers of staining on the teeth can greatly enhance the effectiveness of the bleaching product. This not only means regular brushing with a ‘sensitive’ toothpaste but also means taking steps to eat foods less likely to stain the teeth.
Foods to eat before teeth whitening / to reduce staining
Foods to avoid before teeth whitening include:
Colourful vegetables (e.g. carrots, beetroot)
Colourful fruits (e.g. strawberries, blueberries)
Tomato based cooking sauces (e.g. bolognese)
