Erase Stains and Enjoy an Incredible Smile
Everyone has some dental discoloration, and it can really affect your appearance and self-esteem. Fortunately, it does not have to stay that way. Thanks to our two effective methods of teeth whitening, you can enjoy a white, sparkling grin after just one round of treatment.
At-Home and In-Office Teeth Whitening
We offer both at-home and in-office whitening treatment, and we will provide a complete consultation to help you choose the right type for your lifestyle. At-home treatment can be a great choice if you want to whiten your smile at your own convenience or if you are on a budget. Dr. Dooley will supply you with custom-made whitening trays and a supply of whitening gel. You will wear the trays for 30 to 45 minutes a day, usually for about two weeks. The gel will penetrate your dental enamel to set off an oxidation reaction and break apart stains.
In-office treatment uses whitening gel to produce similar results. However, instead of using whitening trays, we will coat your teeth with a more powerful solution. Then, we will activate it with a special light. We may repeat the process for more effective results, though your visit should still last only about an hour. In-office whitening may be the right choice if you want immediate results, you suffer from dental sensitivity, or you prefer complete professional supervision. Both treatments can produce comparable results, brightening your teeth up too 10 shades or more.
Are You a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening can dramatically reduce extrinsic dental stains, the type of discoloration that results from foods, drinks, and similar factors. However, if you have darker intrinsic stains, resulting from medications, dental infection, or similar factors, teeth whitening will not be a good choice. Whitening gel can only penetrate the outer layers of your teeth. However, we offer other options, including dental bonding and porcelain veneers, which may be a better solution for your smile.
The Benefits of a Whiter Smile
Teeth whitening can have incredible results, transforming your smile’s whole appearance. Your smile is one of your most noticeable attributes, and when it is white and sparkling, it can give you an overall younger, healthier look. In turn, you may feel much more confident and ready to smile in front of others. Like some patients, you may even find that you have new social and professional opportunities thanks to your new level of confidence. Teeth whitening results are not permanent. However, if you are careful about your eating and drinking habits and you undergo routine touch-ups, you could enjoy a whiter smile for decades.
