You deserve a bright smile. There are many choices when it comes to whitening your teeth, which may leave you wondering what product or procedure will give you the best results. Although you can buy teeth whitening agents from the store and use them at home, you should know that the products we use are much more effective. We also use the latest advances in cosmetic dentistry, which has made teeth whitening safer and more affordable than it has been in the past.
Our teeth whitening service gives you optimum results in a short amount of time. We also use products that are not available in stores because they are not safe to use unless supervised by a professional. Even over the counter products can cause damage to your teeth if used incorrectly or left on too long.
Professional Teeth Whitening Procedure
Using our in office teeth whitening service is simple. A typical visit will take between 60 and 90 minutes in total. Before we use any solutions, we first evaluate and record the current shade of your teeth using a color chart. This gives us a better idea of what to use and how long to leave it on your teeth to produce the best results. We then polish your teeth and remove any plaque that will interfere with whitening. Gauze is placed in certain areas of your mouth to keep it as dry as possible. We also use tools to help keep your mouth open without you having to actively open your jaw for a long period of time. Your gum line is protected from exposure to the solution as well. Once these preparations are complete, we coat the front surface of your teeth. The solution we use includes hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide which acts as a bleaching agent. We also use a curing light to activate the peroxide. While the solution sits on your teeth, we keep track of the progress until the ideal shade is reached or the maximum time it is safe to have your teeth exposed is up. We then thoroughly rinse your teeth and apply fluoride to help ease any sensitivity you may feel. You may need to come in for more than one visit depending on the state of your teeth coloring.
Teeth Whitening Benefits
1. Self Confidence
Having whiter teeth will boost your self-confidence and make you feel much more comfortable when you smile. You will also feel better about meeting new people and doing things like giving presentations at work. A whiter smile says a lot about you.
2. Improved Appearance
When you have your teeth professionally whitened, you will benefit from an overall enhanced appearance. Even if you have straight teeth and a healthy mouth, time and habits affect the color of your teeth. Food and drinks like coffee and soda will stain your teeth over time. Whitening can get rid of these stains.
3. Youthful Appearance
A bright white smile will make you look younger and healthier. It also distracts from things like wrinkles, acne, and even frown lines. If you are doing everything you can to stay healthy and look your best, taking care of your teeth should be at the top of your list too.
Teeth whitening is a great cosmetic dental option that won’t cost you a fortune. After our treatment has given you the ideal whitening results you want, touch up treatments are quick and easy. We can also give you enhancers you can use at home between visits. If you do need these, we take the time to go over how to use them correctly so you don’t damage your teeth. We even create custom molds you can use at home.
5. Improved Mental Health
If you suffer from worrying about your appearance because of your smile, your mental health will take a toll on your everyday life.
