A Whiter, Brighter Smile in Under an Hour

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental treatment that can lighten teeth by several shades. While the procedure is simple, it’s important to have it done by a qualified dental professional to avoid complications.

Methods of Teeth Whitening

There are a few different methods of teeth whitening available, each with its advantages and disadvantages. The two most common types of teeth whitening are:

1. Using a bleaching agent.
2. Laser whitening.

Bleaching agent: This method uses a bleaching agent applied to the teeth. This can be done in a dental office or at home with a kit purchased over-the-counter.

Laser whitening: This method uses a special laser that accelerates the bleaching process. Laser whitening is considered to be the most effective method of teeth whitening and can lighten teeth by up to eight shades in a single treatment.
Teeth whitening is a safe and relatively painless procedure, but it’s important to consult a dental professional before undergoing treatment. They will be able to recommend the best method of teeth whitening for you and can help you avoid any potential complications.

In-Office vs. At-Home Whitening

In-Office Whitening

  • Results are noticeable after the first treatment
  • Bleaching agent combined with laser technology
  • Custom-fit tray
  • Only available from your dentist

At-Home Whitening

  • Results are noticeable after a few weeks.
  • Lower concentration of bleaching agent.
  • Available over-the-counter or through your dentist.

While at-home teeth whitening is effective, you will have to wait several weeks to get the desired results. If you want to achieve faster and more noticeable results, then in-office teeth whitening may be a better option for you.

Benefits of In-Office Teeth Whitening

In-office teeth whitening is a popular procedure that can lighten teeth by several shades in just one visit. This treatment is done using a special light and whitening gel.

The procedure is simple and takes about an hour. You will need to schedule two appointments – the first appointment is for a consultation, and the second is for the treatment itself.

At your first appointment, your dentist will take a dental impression of your teeth. They will use this to make a custom-fit tray for you to use at home.

At your second appointment, your dentist will apply the whitening gel to your teeth and use the special light to accelerate the bleaching process. The results are noticeable after just one treatment.

You should avoid eating or drinking anything that can stain your teeth for the next 24 hours after your treatment, and this includes coffee, tea, wine, and soda. You can resume your regular oral hygiene routine immediately after your treatment.
