What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening, also known as teeth bleaching, is a way for us to professionally and safely lightens your teeth a few shades so they are the sparkling white you see in movies, or whatever shade your desired effect may be. This changes the color of your tooth enamel overall; it does not simply lift stains. It is much safer and much more effective than whitening toothpaste or over the counter whitening strips or gels.
We have years of experience which pushes us to use cutting-edge technology to give you a smile you have been dreaming of. White teeth are easily one of the most generally accepted aesthetically pleasing features a person can have, and we aim to put that power right at your fingertips. While you may need a touch up on occasion, with limited smoking, coffee, wine, and other staining foods and beverages, you may be able to make these results last well beyond a year.
How Does it Work?
Our tooth whitening system is split between in-office care and at-home care. Essentially though, we will assist you and help you to get a safe and functional at-home whitening kit. You will need to set up two appointments with us, and in each, we will do something a little different. In your first appointment, we will take impressions of your teeth using putty and a tray. These impressions are very important, as they will be sent to a lab and used to create for you a custom-made whitening tray that you will be able to house whenever you need it. Once we have those trays back, you will come in for your second appointment.
Then, we will make sure that your trays properly fit your teeth and your bite pattern to ensure that the whitening material will fit every nook and cranny. Then, it is up to you. You can wear these trays (with the whitening solution inside) two times a day for several weeks, or overnight for the same period. Your teeth may become sensitive, this is natural, but it will pass. By the end of treatment, your teeth are guaranteed to be shades brighter!
Teeth whitening is safe with us, and we will make sure that you get great results cast. Frank W. Sallustio DDS is here for more than just your restorative dentistry needs, and we want you to be beyond pleased with the results of your procedure.
