Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes a bleaching agent made of hydrogen or carbamide peroxide to lighten the shade of your teeth. Peroxides bleach your teeth by breaking the bonds that hold staining molecules together.
Your teeth can be lightened as much as 10 shades in one session. Whitening treatments improve the appearance of your teeth and your overall smile by reducing discoloration, leaving you with a brighter, whiter, smile.
Take-home whitening is a great option for those with sensitive teeth, busy schedules, or who don’t need an instant drastic whitening treatment. One appointment is required so we can take impressions of your teeth.
These impressions enable us to have a dental lab create custom-fit whitening trays that fit snugly over your teeth and don’t come into contact with your gums, unlike over-the-counter trays which can damage your soft tissue.
Once your trays are ready, you’ll pick them up along with the whitening gel and we’ll give you written instructions on how to use them over the next 2 weeks. The trays are to be worn each day as instructed for 2 weeks and your teeth will gradually become whiter each day.
The in-office treatment will instantly and dramatically whiten your teeth by up to 10 shades in one session, making it desirable for special occasions like weddings or graduations.
During your appointment, we will utilize a cheek retractor and protective gel to keep the bleaching agent away from the soft tissue inside of your mouth.
The whitening gel is carefully applied to each of your teeth and activated with a UV light. The entire process takes about an hour and multiple treatments may be necessary for severely discolored teeth.
