Even though we try our best, sometimes we unintentionally stain our teeth or they get discolored. We recommend combining in-office procedures and at-home whitening kits to achieve the naturally bright smile you desire. Dr. Lindsay and our team will sit down with you to understand your whitening goals and build a plan that's right for you.
In most cases, over-the-counter whitening kits are made for personal use, which may not be as effective. Professional teeth whitening is generally much more effective because dentists have the ability to administer customized professional-grade products to each patient.
Professional grade products will whiten your teeth right away and provide even more immediate results than over-the-counter treatments. If you are seeking improved tooth whitening, the best thing you can do is schedule an appointment with your dentist for a professional whitening treatment.
The process of whitening teeth can be quite straightforward here at Kingman Family Dentistry. The first step is to remove plaque from the surface of the enamel. Next, we'll place shields over your gums to protect them from the chemicals. We will then insert retractor devices for your mouth because we don't want you to open or close your mouth while the gel is working, to prevent any pain or mistreatment of the whitening gel.
After that we will evaluate the shade of your teeth with our shade guide and we will decide with you if we have reached the desired shade!
Your dentist's whitening results can be affected by the bleaching agent he or she uses. In general, there are two types of bleaching agents: hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. Concentration and application method vary, so the length of time whitening results last varies accordingly.
Your teeth whitening results may last anywhere from six months to a few years, depending upon the type of bleaching agent your cosmetic dentist uses.
