Benefits of Our Teeth Whitening Treatment
At-home teeth whitening using over-the-counter products can lead to damaged gums, sensitive teeth, and short-term results. When you receive a professional teeth whitening treatment from Dr. Rice, you’ll attain better results that you can’t get with home products.
Advantages of our in-house whitening treatment include:
- A stronger, longer-lasting whitening
- Quick and easy visit to our office
- Customized color to match your preference
- Safe, comfortable treatment that eliminates sensitivity
- Leave our office with a smile that’s already multiple shades lighter
- More confidence than ever before
What to Expect at a Routine Teeth Whitening Session
To begin with your treatment, we’ll first make sure you’re a good candidate for this treatment by checking your medical history and examining your teeth. The process begins by inserting a rubber shield over your gums to protect them from irritation and then we will begin applying the gel to your tooth’s surface.
The products we use here at Dr. Rice’s office have concentrations of hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide ranging from 25%-40%. Compare this to over-the-counter teeth whitening products that typically have concentrations of 5% or less, meaning you won’t be able to achieve a treatment this effective at home.
Then, we will use a safe, non-invasive laser or LED light to heat and activate the gel. After about 30 to 60 minutes, you’ll be able to notice the visual effects of the whitening solution on your teeth. To finish, you’ll simply rinse out your mouth to remove any leftover gel from your mouth and then you’ll be able to leave with a pearly white smile.
Common Questions about Teeth Whitening
How long does the whitening last?
Your teeth can maintain their brightness for more than a year if you keep up with good oral hygiene and reduce the number of staining foods and drinks you eat.
Will the whitening solution damage my enamel?
Under the supervision of our experienced team, the whitening process is completely safe for your enamel and gums. We’ll protect your gums from the solution to ensure they aren’t affected, but overall, your teeth will be completely unharmed.
What can I do to maintain my beautiful smile?
The color of your teeth can become dull and stained resulting from various factors, including drinking tea, coffee, and wine. Foods including berries, citrus, and tomato paste can also discolor your whitened smile.
Instead, try to reduce the number of times you consume these foods and drinks, but in the instances you do, make it a habit to brush your teeth after or rinse your mouth with water.
Coming in for retouches will also help keep your smile gleaming.
Is at-home teeth whitening available?
Dr. Rice also offers a custom in-home whitening kit. With this kit, you’ll receive whitening products that are custom made to maximize your results and improve your smile.
You can use them whenever you’d like after your in-house treatment, and we’ll provide you with specific instructions so you can easily do it right at home.
