Dr. Rolando Velasco, a Miami, FL dentist, helps patients improve their smiles with tooth whitening procedures.
MIAMI, FL, January 29, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Patients who are unsatisfied with the appearance of their teeth can visit Dr. Rolando Velasco in Miami for tooth whitening treatments. With advances in dentistry, patients can now easily whiten their teeth with in-office and take-home tooth whitening in Miami. Tooth whitening has significantly advanced over recent years due to advancements in cosmetic dentistry, and while it is not for everyone, a proper consultation with Dr. Velasco for an appropriate treatment plan can be created to enhance each patient's smile.
"Tooth discoloration falls under two different categories: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic discoloration occurs in the outer layer of the tooth, called the enamel, and the stains can range from white streaks to yellow tints or even brown spots and pits. Intrinsic discoloration occurs in the inner structure of the tooth, called the dentin, in which the dentin darkens or displays a yellow tint to the tooth," said Dr. Rolando Velasco, a dentist in Miami, FL.
To help patients comfortably whiten their teeth, Dr. Velasco offers the option for professionally dispensed take-home whitening kits. Professionally dispensed trays are much more controlled, easier to use and produces better results than over-the-counter whitening. The whitening trays give the most flexibility to patients and are easy to use for touching up their teeth every few months to maintain a sparkling smile.
Whitening trays dispensed by this Miami, FL dentist work similarly to over-the-counter kits. However, in order to start the process Dr. Velasco will make a custom mold of his patient's teeth so that the tray is custom-fitted to the patient's mouth. This lessens the likelihood of irritation and keeping contact between the bleaching agent and the gums to a minimum.
Dr. Rolando Velasco also offers in-office tooth whitening at his Miami office, which typically takes less than an hour to complete. However, a regular teeth cleaning is recommended prior to the in-office whitening session. The whitening procedure will begin with a short preparation that involves covering the patient's lips and gums, leaving only the teeth exposed. Dr. Velasco will then apply a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel, which works together with the light to penetrate the teeth and break up stains and discoloration.
"For approximately 15 minutes, the gel will remain on your teeth while the light is activated. During this time you can sit back and relax as your teeth begin to whiten," stated Miami tooth whitening dentist, Dr. Velasco. "The gel is applied for a total of three 15-minute sessions of light activation. Immediately after the procedure is finished, a sensitivity-reducing fluoride paste-gel is applied to the teeth."
Patients who are unhappy with the color and appearance of their teeth are encouraged to visit Miami, FL dentist, Dr. Rolando Velasco, for further consultation on how to improve his or her smile with in-office or take-home whitening.
