Teeth Whitening Dentistry
If you have stained or discolored teeth, a simple teeth whitening procedure can greatly improve your smile. You can choose from multiple teeth whitening options and Gregorin Dental will be able help you make an informed choice to suit your needs.
To determine the best teeth whitening option for you, call Gregorin Dental to schedule a consultation. Although we have several options to choose from, your own unique situation will determine the best course of action. The following is a list of the most popular teeth bleaching options available.
At-home whitening trays will provide minor results within a few days, however, the fully desired effect will take 2-3 weeks. You can purchase this teeth whitening option over the counter, however, it is recommended you get it from a dentist’s office. This is because OTC options are less concentrated and make it take longer to see results, plus a dentist can create a customized fitting to maximize your results. This tray will hold the whitening gel which contains carbamide peroxide as the primary whitening ingredient.
Using strips is a similar procedure and time frame as the tray and pen method but results are typically a bit faster. These are specialized plastic strips that are directly applied to the top teeth and bottom teeth. For best results, you can apply the strips twice a day for approximately 30 minutes each time. After two weeks of diligent application, your desired results should be achieved.
IN OFFICE WHITENING
This procedure is done in the office and uses a high concentration of carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. The procedure can take up to an hour and a half to perform. It is done in separate applications and allows for more immediate results. Please call Gregorin Dental to schedule an appointment so we can help you decide what is the best option.
