How Can I Benefit from In-Office Teeth Whitening?
Our professional treatments offer many advantages in comparison to do-it-yourself teeth whitening. One of the primary benefits is that our in-office treatments are performed under the careful supervision of our professional dentists, so you can take comfort knowing that your experience will be safe and pain-free. Many patients also enjoy the immediate, longer-lasting results from our highly concentrated Opalescence whitening gel. These dramatic results can’t be obtained from over-the-counter whitening products. Our dentists will carefully examine your mouth and create an individualized teeth whitening plan that best meets your specific goals.
We recommend in-office teeth whitening for the removal of stains caused by consuming certain foods and drinks and smoking, but not all forms of discoloration can be removed by professional whitening. Stains caused by taking tetracycline and discoloration deep within the tooth, such as defective fillings and decay, will not respond to whitening gels. In addition, restoration materials like veneers, fillings, and crowns aren’t affected by professional whitening and will stay the same color.
What Is the Process for Teeth Whitening at Home?
With our Opalescence take-home whitening kits, you can receive professional-grade results without coming into our office. These kits contain a customized whitening tray and teeth whitening gel to remove stains and discoloration. Impressions of your teeth are taken to ensure that your whitening trays fit your mouth perfectly. If worn for about an hour a day over a two-week period, you can achieve a smile that’s several shades whiter.
What Are the Costs for Teeth Whitening?
The cost of teeth whitening is determined by how many whitening treatments you need, the level of discoloration on your teeth, and the type of whitening system used. To receive an estimate of your teeth bleaching cost, please contact our office to schedule a consultation with our dentists.
Should I Invest in Teeth Whitening Products?
Our professional teeth whitening gel is more reliable and effective in comparison to do-it-yourself products. While you have a lot of over-the-counter teeth whitening products to choose from, including whitening trays, rinses, toothpaste, and strips, the results from these products are not as reliable, and you may experience gum irritation. To ensure that you achieve the bright, dazzling smile you’ve always wanted, we encourage you to receive treatment from an experienced teeth bleaching dentist.
