Getting your teeth whitened is a popular procedure to make your teeth appear brighter, whiter, and more attractive. Bleaching can be used to whiten stained and discolored teeth or to improve a dull smile. However, tooth whitening is an ideal safe and relatively painless procedure for most patients. Our office offers two methods of whitening: in-office whitening and a whitening tray.
In-office Teeth Whitening Procedure
In the dental office is an ideal procedure for anyone wanting immediate results. Because the entire method takes place in our office within an hour, it is the perfect choice for busy people. In this process, a protective gel is applied to the gums to protect the soft tissue. A special light-activated gel is then applied to the teeth, and a special light or a laser is used to enhance the action of the agent. Lastly, we take prints of your teeth to create custom trays for home retouching and will give you instructions to keep your smile shiny. The result are dramatically more white teeth that will last for years.
At-home Tray Procedure
Bleaching Tray is a less expensive whitening treatment that you can use while in the comfort of your own home to gradually bleaching your teeth. First, let’s take an impression of your teeth to create a clear custom tray that you will use to whiten your teeth. In a few days, your trays will be ready to be picked up, and we will show you how to apply the special bleaching material for the trays.
Bleaching gel trays should be used for 30-60 minutes. At the end of this period, you will see maximum results of whitening that are nothing less than dazzling. Occasional treatment can be used at your convenience to maintain your new smile.
