Keeping our teeth their whitest is a lot harder than it sounds. With all the coffee, wine, smoking and other foods that have the ability to stain our teeth on a daily basis, even proper maintenance sometimes leaves them a little lackluster. Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural color if you would like.
At your whitening appointment, your dental professional will verify that you're a candidate* for whitening, assess your shade and take impressions for your custom fabricated trays. Your in-office procedure will begin with prep and a series of lighted and non lighted. A special lamp is incorporated that accelerates whitening so that each of the sessions lasts only 15 minutes. Post treatment your dental professional will provide custom trays along with the appropriate take home whitening gel best for you so you can maintain a bright, white smile.
*This type of whitening is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing, patients undergoing chemotherapy, children under the age of 13, or patients who are on drugs which would increase sensitivity to light.
