Teeth Whitening in Durham NC
Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “whitening” procedure.
What are the details of teeth whitening?
It’s safe, quick and affordable. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower.
Custom bleach trays will be ready for you to pick up after impressions. We provide you with a special bleaching agent and instructions on how to safely use it. With only a short time per day, our special bleaching agent removes stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without damaging soft tissue (gums), altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. We’ll want to take “after” photos at your next appointment.
Dental whitening can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in whitening technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of whitening treatments, teeth whitening is nearly always worth a solid try.
How is teeth whitening done?
Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening
- Corrects brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining
- Works on people of any age
- Is a near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and brings a smile alive
We offer in-office professional whitening and to fabricate custom whitening trays for you to bleach at home at your pace.
The in-office treatment takes about an hour and usually you see results right away.
At home whitening trays: An impression is made to fabricate a specialized whitening mouth guard to hold the bleach against the teeth but at the same time protecting your gums. We will give you instructions on how much time you must apply it and at the end significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to achieve improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or dental veneers may be more appropriate.
Considerations for Teeth Whitening
Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our team recommends.
