Over time, teeth begin to accumulate stains and become discolored. This unsightly cosmetic dental issue can easily be treated by a teeth bleaching dentist. By pursuing teeth whitening treatments from your dentist, you will be able to achieve a brighter smile in no time at all. The treatments are efficient, simple, affordable, and effective.
Having your teeth whitened in-office is also commonly called power bleaching or chairside teeth whitening. The conditions that professional whitening treatments are performed under ensure that the teeth are lightened quickly and safely. The bleaching gel used for teeth whitening is highly concentrated, meaning the results are immediately noticeable.
This treatment works best if you are experiencing tooth discoloration due to the consumption of particular foods and beverages, as well as smoking. Certain types of tooth discoloration won’t respond to teeth whitening procedures. These include tetracycline stains, defective fillings, extensive tooth decay, and structural damage to the teeth. Veneers, crowns, and fillings also aren’t impacted by the whitening gel and will remain the same color.
Before you undergo the treatment process, a teeth bleaching dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth and mouth to find out why your teeth are experiencing discoloration. Once the cause has been determined, the dentist will work with you to find the best whitening option for your teeth.
In addition to offering in-office whitening, we also offer the option of pursuing teeth whitening at home with professional-grade at-home teeth whitening kits. These kits are made up by your dentist and will consist of custom-fitted trays full of highly concentrated bleaching gel. You can expect to lighten your teeth up to six shades over a period of two weeks if you use the trays as instructed.
Since teeth whitening treatments are highly individualized, the exact cost that you will owe will depend on the type of treatments used, the number of treatments needed, and any follow-up treatments that your dentist requires. If you would like to educate yourself on the estimated teeth bleaching cost, then give our office a call. Our team of friendly professionals is happy to provide you with a detailed and accurate estimate of what you will owe.
While the convenience of using over-the-counter whitening products is undeniable, it is important to note that store bought products like trays, gels, rinses, toothpastes, and strips aren’t as effective or fast acting as teeth whitening treatments. Using a dentist to perform your whitening treatments also ensures that your treatment is safe and doesn’t irritate the gums or teeth.
Your dentist will do a number of things during your teeth whitening procedure. While the exact steps needed to perform your treatment may vary, the following will give you an idea of what to expect during a whitening treatment.
