Are your teeth not as white or radiant as they used to be? Over time, teeth can become stained, yellow, or discolored from eating certain foods and beverages, lack of dental hygiene, or other factors. For many people, whiter teeth is a sign of not only a health smile but a beautiful one. If you wish that your smile was whiter, our team at Aesthetic Dentistry Associates offers professional teeth whitening to give you the smile you want.
What Is Teeth Whitening?
Professional teeth whitening is a common and popular cosmetic treatment that helps break up stains underneath a tooth’s surface to give it a naturally whiter appearance. There are a variety of teeth whitening treatments available. Some can be completed in about an hour at our office, and others can be used at home. While over-the-counter whitening treatments may brighten your smile in some degree, they do not offer the same results as professional whitening, nor can you achieve your desired results as quickly as with a professional teeth whitening treatment.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
When you choose to have your teeth whitened in our dental practice, your smile can become visibly brighter in just one visit. Compare this to the two weeks it takes for an at-home treatment to work, and you’ve got the perfect treatment to give you a whiter smile today.
During your in-office teeth whitening treatment, Drs. Umansky, Nikmard and Elmore will perform the following steps:
- Cover your gums and lips to protect them from the whitening light
- Apply a whitening gel to the front surface of your teeth
- Active the whitening gel with a whitening light
- Repeat this process two or three times
Most whitening treatments take about 45 minutes to an hour, and you leave our office with a smile that is up to several shades whiter! The results of a whitening treatment can last for many years as you avoid foods and drinks that can stain your teeth, and as you maintain proper oral hygiene.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
If your schedule does not allow for you to visit our office for an in-office whitening, our dentists can provide you with an at-home teeth whitening treatment. With this option, you can receive the same results that you would in our office but in the comfort of your own home.
If you are looking to whiten your smile at home, we recommend getting a professional at-home whitening treatment instead of an over-the-counter one. With a professional treatment, you receive a customized whitening tray, which enables the whitening gel to access all areas of your tooth’s surface, giving you even and splotch-free results. Professional whitening treatments also use a stronger whitening gel to help you get a more noticeable result faster.
With over-the-counter whiteners, what you see is what you get. With a professional whitener, your treatment can be adjusted to help minimize tooth sensitivity, ultimately giving you a more comfortable and enjoyable experience.
