Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple whitening procedure.
What are the details of teeth whitening?
It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. 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 only a day or two your custom whitening splints will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special whitening agent that you put into the clear splints. With only 30 to 60 minutes ofwear per day, our special whitening agent will lightenyour 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 treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. We will monitor your shade change 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, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of whitening treatments, whitening is nearly always worth a solid try.
How is teeth whitening done?
Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening
- Improves brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining
- Works on people of any age
- Is a conservative solution for a dull smile, restoring brightness and bringing a smile alive
An impression is taken to make a specialized mouthguard or stent to hold the whitening agent against the teeth. The material is used each night fortwo to three weeks. For confidence in appearance, whitening technology allows us to provide 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 can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends. Our custom made trays will reducecontact of the whitener with the gum tissue, and are simply more comfortable to wear.
