One of the most popular procedures in cosmetic dentistry is teeth whitening. This relatively inexpensive procedure delivers noticeable results in a short period of time. Whitening is an excellent option for practically anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their smile. We often combine cosmetic and restorative dental procedures with teeth whitening for optimal results.
Our office uses professional grade bleaching gel that is administered at home using a custom-made bleaching tray. The bleaching trays can be worn either during the day or overnight, depending on the patient, for a set amount of time as directed by the dentist.
Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening is far superior to the over the counter treatments sold at drug stores. These are a “one size fits all” solution, where bleaching strips or trays are not designed to fit the patient’s teeth comfortably and precisely. Ill-fitting trays or strips can cause inconsistent bleaching, gum irritation and damage to the tooth enamel.
Our teeth naturally darken as we age. Other factors that cause our teeth to become dull and discolored are dark foods and beverages such as coffee and wine, tobacco use, certain medications and family history. Having a whiter brighter smile can boost your confidence, make you more attractive and give you a younger appearance. Teeth whitening is often done for special events such as weddings, graduations and job interviews.
