How is In Office Teeth Whitening Done?
Your teeth should be cleaned by hygienist first before you have a whitening procedure done. Let us know if you are interested in whitening, afterward we can do it in the same visit.
Our dentist can give you an in office teeth whitening treatment that uses whitening gel and a laser. Before the gel is applied to your teeth, a protective agent is rubbed on your gums. Which will protect your gums.
After the gel is in place, the dentist will use a special light that makes the gel more effective. The dentist will leave the gel in place for a few minutes and then rinse it off. If your teeth are still stained, the dentist can do this process up to three times.
Whitening After Care
It’s important to avoid anything that can stain your teeth for the first 48 hours after the whitening treatment. If a food or drink would stain a white t-shirt, then you should not have it. Otherwise, you set yourself up to stain your teeth more than before the treatments.
How Often Do You Need Laser Treatments?
In general, you likely won’t need to whiten your teeth more than once a year if you go with in office treatments. The results are much more effective than over the counter products or trays.
Laser whitening is an easy and safe way to make your smile brighter. It only takes one office visit to whiten your teeth completely.
