Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they have been dreaming of with our simple teeth whitening procedure.
What are the details of Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is safe, quick, and inexpensive. At any appointment, just let us know if you would like to begin the whitening process. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower depending on how much you show when you talk and smile.
In about a week your custom bleach splints will be ready for you. We provide a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear splints. With only thirty minutes of wear per day, our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel without altering tooth structure or existing dental work. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. We may want to take “after” photos at your next appointment.
Dental whitening can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in whitening technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful, brilliant smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, dental crowns or teeth veneers may be the only choice. But because of the low cost of whitening treatments, teeth whitening is nearly always worth a try.
Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening:
- Corrects brown, yellow, and mottled teeth stains.
- Improve the aesthetics of your smile, regardless of age.
- It is a near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and brings a smile alive
How is teeth whitening done?
An impression is taken to make a customized tray to hold the bleaching solution against the teeth. The material is used each day for about thirty minutes for a week or two. By the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, this bleaching technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging, or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, dental crowns or veneers may be more appropriate.
Considerations for Teeth Whitening
Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it is better to use products that our practice recommends.
