Professional teeth whitening can improve your smile.
If you are looking for a quick, easy, and effective way to boost the appearance of your smile, you may consider talking to Dr. Heather Adams about professional teeth whitening. Professional teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that can improve the appearance of your smile in as little as one hour. Dr. Adams offers her patients both in-office whitening treatments and take-home whitening kits for brighter, whiter smiles.
Professional teeth whitening provides optimal results when compared to over-the-counter options. Professional whitening gels are designed to reduce sensitivity and provide faster, more stable results. High-grade whitening gels are carefully and evenly administered to the surface of the teeth avoiding contact with the gum tissue.
When you visit a store you’re likely to see a number of products promising brighter smiles, from strips to toothpaste. While these products do provide some brightening, they simply can’t offer the same level of results available from professional cosmetic treatment. Do you need teeth whitening? Then talk to our office about our options for removing teeth stains.
Teeth Whitening Frequently Asked Questions
Why do our teeth become stained?
There are multiple ways our teeth can gather stains. Consuming drinks with dark pigments (coffee, soda, tea), smoking, and age can lead to discoloration. Injury to the tooth, fluorosis, and the use of medications such as tetracycline can also stain our teeth.
How does the in-office whitening work?
The office-based option involves placing a powerful bleaching gel onto the surface of the teeth. The gel is activated with a curing light, lifting surface stains in about an hour.
Can you brighten teeth from home?
Yes. Instead of relying on strips or toothpaste, your dentist can provide a custom-made set of trays and bleaching gel. Each day you will fill the trays with gel and wear them for the amount of time the doctor recommends. Total treatment takes between a week to 10 days, depending on the severity of your teeth stains.
What other options are available?
We can also use cosmetic treatments and restorations to simply mask stains, particularly those that don’t respond to traditional teeth whitening. We may suggest dental bonding, porcelain veneers, or ceramic crowns, which can also reshape the tooth and mask other cosmetic concerns. If you have any questions about our approach to teeth whitening, then contact our office today.
Do You Need In-Office Or At-Home Teeth Whitening?
In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening can whiten teeth up to 8 shades in just one visit to our Rogers, AR dentist office. Dr. Adams will apply a whitening gel to the teeth. The gel is activated using a special blue light. Results are instant, gorgeous, and noticeable. In-office whitening is great for big events like weddings and reunions.
Take-Home Whitening Kit
Take-home teeth whitening can offer patients a more natural and gradual smile enhancement. Dr. Adams provides patients with custom trays molded to comfortably fit over the teeth. Patients use the trays to administer the whitening gel to the teeth once a day. Trays are worn nightly and produce beautiful results. Patients enjoy whitening their teeth from the comfort of their home and see whiter teeth in just a few uses.
