Are you concerned that your yellow teeth are aging you? If so, in-office teeth whitening can make you look younger once the stains are gone and your pearly whites gleam once again.
Chair-side whitening gives you considerably whiter teeth immediately. Teeth whitening removes extrinsic tooth stains, including wine, coffee and tobacco stains. There are stains that whitening gel cannot remove, such as tetracycline stains and other intrinsic stains deep within your tooth, such as decay or darkening from an injury. There are other solutions for intrinsic stains, such as crowns or veneers.
Contact our office to schedule an appointment and an experienced dentist will let you know what kind of teeth whitening results you can expect to see.
A teeth bleaching dentist can provide you with a custom tray and an at-home teeth whitening gel to use for an hour a day for two weeks, or as instructed. The dentist-prescribed solution is stronger than any teeth whitening product you could purchase at a store and it is formulated especially for you, to give you the shade of whiteness that you desire.
There are several variables that can affect your teeth bleaching cost, including the number of treatments that you will need and whether you receive a take home whitening kit. If you have restorations, such as crowns, this also affects your cost since our dentist will have to even out the color; teeth whitening will not bleach restorations. Call our office to arrange a teeth whitening consultation and we can give you an estimate once our dentist determines your teeth’s color, the number of restorations that you have and your overall dental health.
You will find a wide variety of teeth whitening products in stores, including toothpastes, strips and chewing gums. While these products lighten teeth by a few shades, they cannot match the whitening power of chairside teeth whitening with professional grade bleaching agents. Additionally, an in-office tooth bleaching offers professional supervision and immediate results.
Initially, our dentist will examine your teeth and gums and professionally clean your teeth. Our dentist may want to take a photo of your teeth to show you the results of your teeth whitening treatment. If not, you can take your own photo and compare the before and after color.
Our dentist uses a cheek retractor to expose your teeth, and then he or she will protect your gums from the bleach with either a gel or a rubber dam. The bleaching solution is applied and then left on for a set period. Our dentist may use an intense light or laser to enhance the results. When your treatment is finished, our dentist may send you home with products to maintain your teeth’s brightness.
