Teeth whitening is a great way to give your smile a boost. Even if your teeth aren’t noticeably stained or discolored, whitening can brighten your teeth and give you extra confidence at that next job interview, school event, or day with friends.
What Can I Expect From Teeth Whitening?
With our teeth whitening services, you can expect to see a uniform change across all of your teeth. You’ll see a noticeable difference in the color of your smile, often up to several shades whiter! We think you’ll find that having a brighter smile leads to better self-confidence and a happier you.
It’s important to note that teeth whitening may not be the best solution if you have very heavily stained teeth, or if you have one discolored tooth in particular that you’d like to see recolored. If either of these situations sound like you, talk to your dentist about your options!
Some stains from dead teeth or internal diseases are resistant to regular whitening treatments. You might be better suited to veneers or cosmetic bonding to cover the darkened tooth in those cases. Talk to our team today—there are plenty of ways to fix staining or specific spots of discoloration.
What Is the Teeth Whitening Process Like?
We offer Opalescence brand whitening at our office, and also give our patients the option of using either take-home or in-office teeth whitening here at our Gladstone location. There’s no wrong choice here—both options will give you a brighter smile!
If you choose the take-home whitening option, your dentist will go over the procedure with you and make sure you understand it completely. After that, you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home!
You’ll be given a custom dental tray that fits over your teeth. You’ll put the whitening material in these trays and place them in your mouth for usually about 30 minutes at a time over a few weeks. Then, it’s just a matter of waiting enough time for the whitening process to be complete!
If you’d rather have a dentist in charge of your whitening process, the in-office option here at Gladstone Family Dentistry might be best for you. The whitening process will be just like any other dental treatment, with total dentist supervision.
The in-office whitening treatment is chemically activated, which means you won’t have to sit under hot or uncomfortable lights. You’ll see noticeable results in only an hour!
