Professional teeth whitening can remove stains, brighten your smile and boost your self-confidence. Today, our dentists explain how the professional teeth whitening process works here at Cloverdale Crossing Dental Group.
Teeth naturally darken as we age, but a number of different foods and beverages can also lead to teeth becoming stained and discoloured. Teeth whitening is a non-invasive dental treatment that can help to quickly and effectively restore brilliance to your smile.
Professional Teeth Whitening
At Cloverdale Crossing Dental Group we offer our patients custom teeth whitening systems to help remove stains and whiten teeth.
Our professional tooth whitening system requires two visits to our dental office.
When you visit us for your first appointment, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth in order to create custom whitening trays that fit your teeth precisely.
At your second appointment you will be provided with your custom whitening trays along with bleaching solution, and full instructions on how to use the whitening treatment in the comfort of your own home.
Your whitening trays will be worn along with the special bleaching solution. We think that you will find the trays to be both lightweight and comfortable to wear.
Whitening systems vary somewhat, so your dentist will provide you with specific instructions for your whitening system. That said, patients will typically wear the trays with the whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whiteness.
Treatment will take 10-14 days to achieve the desired level of whiteness. If you are unsure how white is white enough speak to your Surrey dentist for advice.
After you have completed your treatment be sure to hang on to your whitening trays so that when it's time for a touch-up you will be able to reuse your trays, and just contact our office for more of the whitening solution.
Note: It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity while you are whitening your teeth, but it should subside shortly after you have completed your treatment.
