Even with perfect oral hygiene habits, teeth can naturally lose some of their pearly white color. At SmileCOS Dentistry, we happily help our patients get their beautiful white teeth back again. While we know there are numerous over-the-counter teeth whitening products available today, we offer the best results with our professional options.
The Teeth Whitening Procedure
You have two options for professional teeth whitening. You can use our professional take-home kit or take advantage of our in-office teeth whitening services. Both options deliver whiter teeth but take different amounts of time to achieve the desired results.
The take-home kit is not synonymous with the kits you would buy at your local store. Our lab creates a custom kit just for you to achieve the results that you desire. The process starts in our office, where our dentists will take impressions of your mouth. We send these impressions to our lab, where they create whitening trays that you use at home. The trays fit your teeth perfectly, as the lab makes them specifically for you.
If you use the whitening trays per our instructions, you will have brighter, whiter teeth in the allotted time. The trays hold the whitening gel that helps remove the stains on your enamel. Each tray that we provide fits perfectly so that you do not have to worry about gum or lip irritation.
If you want quicker results, we suggest our in-office teeth whitening. The non-invasive procedure whitens your teeth in just one appointment. Our dentists place a tooth-whitening gel on your teeth and then activate it with a special light. The light helps the gel bleach your teeth.
Our in-office procedures are quick and painless. We offer both Zoom! and Opalescence Xtra Boost, which offer great results for specific patients. During our consultation, our dentists will determine which product will work the best for you. Both options provide you with beautiful white teeth and the ability to resume your normal routine immediately following the appointment.
Who Can Undergo Teeth Whitening?
If you do not love the color of your teeth, talk to us. We will first evaluate your overall oral health to determine if teeth whitening is a good option right now. If we notice any other dental work that we must do first, we will suggest holding off on teeth whitening. Tooth decay, gum disease, and restorations take priority over teeth whitening.
Once we have your oral health in optimal condition, we can discuss your teeth whitening options. We will take into consideration your overall oral and physical health to determine if teeth whitening will be effective. In some cases, certain medications or physical illnesses can damage your tooth enamel, making even the strongest whitening services ineffective. Our dentists will work closely with you to determine if this is the case and help you find other alternatives to achieve the white smile that you desire.
