How does Teeth Whitening Work? 

When you come in for teeth whitening, you can expect professional service from our staff that will leave you feeling satisfied with your treatment. To begin, the dentist will look over your dental history to make sure that teeth whitening is a good decision for you. Teeth whitening can sometimes make your teeth more sensitive to hot and cold foods, so they need to be strong in order to handle the whitening bleach used. 

Once a desired shade of white is chosen, the dentist will begin the process by cleaning your teeth and prepping y

our gums with a protectant. Next, the whitening bleach, which contains hydrogen peroxide, will be applied to the surface of your teeth. A blue light will then be used to activate the peroxide to whiten your teeth. In just under an hour, you can have a noticeably white smile that boosts your confidence.

In-Office Treatment Vs. Over the Counter Products

Today, over-the-counter teeth whitening products are very common due to high demand. While these may seem like a quick, inexpensive way to whiten your teeth, in reality, they are anything but that. Over-the-counter products can take a long time to show results, and the results will not be lasting. You can easily spend more money on generic teeth whitening products than you would spend on one professional whitening treatment. 

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Some of the major benefits of an in-office professional teeth whitening include: 

  • Quicker results 
  • More reliable treatment 
  • A boost in confidence 
  • Control over your results 
  • Personalized treatment
  • Professionalism and safety
