Professional teeth whitening is a highly effective method for quickly and easily rejuvenating your smile. Two types of professional teeth whitening are available from our practices in Tulsa and Claremore, OK: in-office and at-home treatments. Read on to learn how our dentists, Dr. Billie Reeder, Dr. Lori Hare, and Dr. Robin Ross, can whiten your smile by several shades, with results lasting from several months to several years!
In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening treatments are the fastest way to achieve a whiter smile. A single in-office treatment session can whiten the teeth by up to eight shades. During treatment, a retractor device is used to keep the mouth open so your dental professional can more easily apply the whitening gel to the teeth. A protective rubber dam is used to protect the gums and prevent them from coming into contact with the whitening gel, which could potentially irritate the gums.
The whitening gel is carefully applied to the teeth and left in place for about 30 minutes before being cleaned off and reapplied for another 30 minutes. Applying a fresh coat of the whitening gel helps maximize your whitening results. After the second coat is removed, the retractor and dam will also be removed, effectively finishing your whitening treatment.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
At-home professional teeth whitening treatments are a convenient alternative to in-office treatments for busy individuals. At-home whitening treatments come with a set of custom bleaching trays and professional whitening gel. The trays are custom made based on a mold of your teeth for a perfect fit, and they are worn over the teeth for about an hour several times a week. With at-home whitening, your teeth will become several shades brighter in just a few weeks!
Advantages of Professional Teeth Whitening
The professional teeth whitening treatments available at Healthy Smiles Family Dentistry offer several benefits that over-the-counter products, such as whitening strips and toothpastes, simply can not. For one, professional whitening treatments use professional strength bleaching agent to deliver a whiter smile at a much quicker pace. Professional teeth whitening treatments also produce longer-lasting results that can potentially last for several years!
