Teeth Whitening Landis NC
Teeth whitening is the administration of chemicals to the teeth in order to increase the brightness and shade of white. Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental service that we offer to our Landis, NC patients.
At Parkway Dentistry, we offer certified teeth whitening that guarantees better results than do-it-yourself at-home kits.
How Does In-Office Professional Teeth Whitening Work?
First, you will consult with one of our dentists as to what shade of white you'd like to have. We will discuss how many appointments will be needed to make that possible, and how we can ensure that results last.
We will ask about your medical and dental history, to make sure whitening is possible for you. Patients with crowns, gum disease, or dental bridges may be unable to attain teeth whitening.
One of our dentists will then take a mold of your mouth, in order to make a pair of teeth whitening trays. Custom-made trays ensure the proper administration of the teeth whitening chemicals, yielding better results than one-size-fits-all home kits. The whitening trays will take a couple of weeks to be made.
During your whitening session, the dentist will make sure your gums are properly protected from the whitening chemicals before beginning the process. A blue lamp will then be placed over your teeth. This light activates the chemicals in the teeth whitening trays, and begins the process. The treatment should take two hours, and the results can last many months, depending on the maintenance of your health.
Teeth whitening may cause slight sensitivity during, and after, the session. Otherwise, there are rarely any other complications and it is a simple procedure. If sensitivity is felt, contact our dentist.
After the session, our dentist will give you some kits to top up your whitening at home. These should be used every six to nine months, where necessary, to ensure the maintenance of your whitening.
How Do I Keep My Teeth White After Treatment?
No one is able to perfectly maintain the coloration of their teeth, but there are things you can do to avoid damage and discoloration.
