Teeth whitening is a popular way to rid the teeth of the unwanted staining and discoloration that is caused over time. Performed by a teeth bleaching dentist, treatments are fast, simple, effective, and affordable.
Pursuing teeth whitening treatments performed by a dentist ensures that the procedure is performed safely and efficiently. In addition to being safer, the highly concentrated bleaching gel used in professional treatments gives you whiter teeth immediately.
If your staining has been caused primarily by food, drink, or smoking, then professional whitening treatments are most likely the best choice for you. Tooth discoloration caused by decay, tooth structural issues, defective fillings, or tetracycline stains can’t be treated with via teeth whitening treatments. Stains on veneers, crowns, or fillings also can’t be treated via professional whitening treatments.
At your initial visit, one of our dentists will perform an examination that will determine the source of your discoloration. Our team will work with you to find the best teeth whitening treatment plan for your unique needs.
Professional-grade teeth whitening can also be done at home. Many patients are able to lighten their teeth up to six shades via at-home professional whitening kits. This is pursued through the use of whitening kits that utilize professional-grade whitening gel and custom-fitted whitening trays. At-home treatments usually consist of you wearing your whitening tray for one hour a day over a two-week period.
If you’re concerned about the overall teeth bleaching cost, rest assured that our team will provide you with a detailed estimate of the cost of your treatments. Your overall cost will be determined by factors like the teeth whitening system used, the number of treatments needed, and the number of follow-up treatments required. Call us as soon as possible to learn more about how you can afford your whitening treatments.
Over-the-counter teeth whitening options usually consist of trays, gels, strips, toothpastes and rinses. While these products work to lighten the teeth, the results are not as fast or dramatic as what you will get from a teeth bleaching dentist. In addition, when you use over-the-counter products, you run the risk of causing gum irritation. A visit to a dentist to pursue professional whitening treatments prevents irritation and other side effects from occurring.
