Professional Teeth Whitening Options, Performed In-Office

professional teeth whiteningYou may have looked in the mirror recently and felt slightly self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth. Over time, your teeth can become dull, yellow, and discolored for a variety of reasons. Hereditary factors, the regular consumption of certain foods and beverages, and lifestyle factors can all affect the appearance of your teeth. If you are dissatisfied with your smile, you should consider professional teeth whitening.

It’s no secret that a bright white smile can be an attractive and powerful asset in both personal and professional situations. In order to achieve the best results for whiter teeth, it’s best to look beyond at-home teeth whitening options. Products available at the drug store require many repeated applications, and can create uneven shades of white across your smile. Whitening treatments performed by a professional by Dr. Dan here at Temple Family Dentistry will yield better results in far fewer applications.

With professional teeth whitening, Dr. Dan will discuss whitening levels with you to ensure the final shade is natural, and matches your skin tone. Your teeth will ultimately all look a uniform shade of white to help bring that bright, amazing smile really pop. Another advantage to professional teeth whitening is how quick and comfortable the process is. You could see your desired result in under an hour depending on which process you choose. 

At Temple Family Dentistry we offer two professional teeth whitening solutions to meet your needs. The first is a product which is offered in our office called Glo whitening. This is a fast, professional treatment which will yield a beautiful white smile in under an hour. Dr. Dan will use the Glo device, which has special heat resistors and light reflectors inside the mouthpiece that activate a special whitening gel which is applied to your teeth. The process leads to fast results without any sensitivity. 

The second option can be used at-home with customized whitening trays, and is called Opalescence. This whitening process involves adding the whitening gel to your trays and wearing them daily over the course of three to four weeks. Opalescence is made in the USA, is gluten-free, and kosher certified. It is convenient to use, comfortable to wear, and was developed with a specific pH to help deter bacteria growth.
