What is professional Teeth Whitening?
Having a yellowed, dulled and discolored smile can put a damper on your self-esteem. You might shy away when people talk to you or you might avoid laughing or smiling because of how your teeth look. Professional whitening is designed to dissolve and lift stains so that your teeth are brighter and whiter than ever before. Our office offers both home-based and in-office whitening to meet your smile goals and needs.
Why might you need Teeth Whitening?
Many diet and lifestyle factors can contribute to a discolored smile. Whether you love your coffee in the morning or have smoked for many years, it might be time to reveal a healthier, whiter smile. Some reasons for discoloration are completely out of our direct control. Things like aging and taking certain medications may even stain your teeth over time.
What makes someone a candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Even the very best whitening will have no impact on restorations in the mouth. These types of restorations can include veneers, crowns, bridges, dentures or bonding. Your teeth should be healthy enough to be professionally whitened. An exam will help us to determine if whitening is the best solution to your smile problems.
What can be expected during professional Teeth Whitening?
With a consultation, we’ll help you find the whitening solution that is right for you. If you’ve chosen our in-office whitening, we’ll have you come in and sit in one of our operatories. We apply a thin layer of whitening gel to your teeth. A special light is used to essentially activate the ingredients in the gel to lighten your teeth. In-office whitening takes about an hour and creates dramatic, lasting results. Home-based whitening is done by taking impressions of your mouth and then making trays that you can wear in the comfort of your house. You’ll be given a whitening gel that can be applied into the trays and worn at any time of the day or night.
