What's the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment today? Here at Healthy Smiles Family Dentistry in Tulsa and Claremore, OK, it's professional teeth whitening, a safe, effective way to remove years of deep dental stains. Led by Dr. Billie Reeder, Dr. Lori Hare, and Dr. Robin Ross, we provide whitening to older teens and adults who want that WOW factor when they smile.
Teeth become stained
It's a fact of life—over time, deeply pigmented foods/beverages, cigarette smoke, the aging process, and more all end up darkening tooth enamel. After all, even though tooth enamel is rock-hard, its calcified fibers also absorb organic matter, changing the sheen and color of your smile.
Truthfully, even if you brush your teeth twice a day and floss daily as the American Dental Association (ADA) says you should, your teeth may still end up stained. This is where professional teeth whitening can help.
How it works
Here at Healthy Smiles Family Dentistry in Tulsa and Claremore, OK, our dentists qualify patients for professional teeth whitening and other amazing aesthetic treatments. If you are a candidate, you can choose between at-home or in-office whitening options. Both brighten teeth by about eight shades of color using a concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel. The in-office variety takes about an hour to complete, and it involves:
- Two applications of peroxide gel
- Protection of soft oral tissues with a comfortable retractor
- Relaxation during the entire process in one of our comfortable dental chairs
The at-home treatment takes up to a week of daily applications of a less concentrated gel. Results are just as bright and stunning as the in-office service.
