Professional Teeth-Whitening Made Easy
Your good hygiene and preventive dental efforts can help you avoid most types of dental issues. Yet, you may not always be able to prevent stains from developing on the surfaces of your teeth. The enamel that covers them is highly resilient, but it isn’t 100% stain resistant, and years of exposure to your food and beverages can eventually leave a noticeable mark. Fortunately, most common teeth stains are no big deal for two important reasons – they don’t pose a threat to your oral health, and they can be erased conveniently with professional teeth-whitening. At our office, we make the process of brightening your smile even easier by offering a choice of teeth-whitening methods that you can either receive in our office, perform at home, or a combination of both.
At Home or In Our Office
Professional teeth-whitening consists of applying a safe but potent whitening agent (in the form of a gel) to the surfaces of your teeth. The gel breaks up and erases the stains that have developed on your teeth’s surfaces without causing harm to your tooth enamel. In-office treatment involves applying the gel and then stimulating it with a special light, allowing the gel to do its work in just over an hour. If you need a brighter smile in a hurry, then in-office whitening can provide it in just a single visit. If you prefer at-home treatment, then your dentist will provide a custom-designed set of whitening trays that fit comfortably over your teeth and a supply of the whitening gel. The trays allow you to apply the gel evenly to your teeth for a couple of hours each day, gradually brightening your smile over the course of 10-14 days.
