TEETH WHITENING PROCEDURE
Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth. The most popular method is using a home teeth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically. Since teeth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.
Teeth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up may be needed every several years, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.
IN OFFICE WHITENING
In-office whitening procedure is the fastest form of whitening available. We use a powerful gel that relies on chemistry to achieve the desired effects. This is usually a one visit appointment for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. With this procedure, we also make the patient take home whitening trays to use for touch ups at a future time as needed.
TAKE HOME WHITENING
Take home whitening involves making a copy of your teeth to make custom trays. The whitening solution is placed in the tray and is worn 15min to 30 minutes depending on the strength. The solution is worn 10 to 14 days to achieve the desired results.
