BRIGHTEN YOUR SMILE
Teeth Whitening is an easy and effective way to start changing your smile and appearance today. And there is no reported irreversible damage that occurs due to bleaching. In other words, it is completely safe. Tooth sensitivity can develop but it is completely reversible and typically only lasts 2-3 days. However, to combat tooth sensitivity our protocol requires that the patient use Sensodyne toothpaste 2 weeks prior to the start of their tooth whitening treatment.
We always use custom whitening trays. This allows you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home on your own time and leisure. You can whiten while you read, while you watch the kids, or prepare dinner. The custom tray is designed to fit your mouth exclusively so that it is comfortable each time you take the trays in and out of your mouth. You simply will apply the whitening gel to the tray and then place the tray over your teeth and allow for the whitening agent to do the work while you wait for the results. A typical treatment is approximately 30 minutes/day for 7 days. We also offer in-office treatments to accomplish faster results.
At Personal Care Dentistry we approach each teeth whitening case the same way.
It starts with a discussion of your whitening expectations and an analysis of your tooth enamel consistency.
Then we obtain pre-treatment records of your tooth color with photographs. From there we fabricate custom bleaching trays fit specifically for your teeth and provide you with a high-powered bleaching concentrate agent to best service your goals.
We offer both take-home bleaching options and in-office treatment options.
