Teeth whitening have become one of the most requested procedures today in cosmetic dentistry. Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people have achieved the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple bleaching procedure.
What are the details of teeth whitening?
It’s safe, quick, and maintainable. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth.
In just a few days your custom bleaching trays will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear trays. With only a few hours of wear per day, our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional at home treatment is needed to maintain your new smile.
Teeth whitening can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile.
How is teeth whitening done?
Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening
- Lightens brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining
- Works on people of any age
- It’s a fantastic solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and brings a smile alive
An impression is taken to make a custom “mouthguard” or “tray” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each night for about 3-4 hours for approximately two weeks, depending on the severity of the stain, and at the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or porcelain 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 aren’t used under the direct supervision of a dentist, the materials are made with are a lot less potency, hence the reason why they don’t really work.
