Do you find yourself wishing for a whiter, brighter smile? People looking to enhance their appearance can visit Raleigh Dental Arts for teeth whitening services.Also to explore the different cosmetic dentistry options that are available to them. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your concerns and goals to help determine which route is best for your individual needs.
The At-Home Teeth Whitening Services
If you’re on a fixed budget and time isn’t an issue, then our at-home whitening system may be just right for you. The process consists of two appointments to get started. During the first visit, our Raleigh dental team will take a set of impressions of your teeth, which are used to make custom fitted bleaching trays. Once fabrication of the trays has been completed, you’ll return to the office to pick them up. A clinician will ensure that they fit properly and show you how to use them.
Over the course of several days, you’ll wear the trays at home to whiten your teeth by placing a small amount of our prescription strength formula inside the them. The process only takes an hour or less per day and optimal results are visible within in a couple of weeks.
One of the great things about this method is that you can keep the trays after you’re done bleaching. That way you can use them again if down the road you want to give your teeth a boost. All you have to do is visit our office to pick up a refill of the prescription grade gel.
Our In-Office Treatment (Same Day Teeth Whitening)
If you prefer to whiten your teeth faster, or to have them done by someone else, then our in-office system may be ideal. This whitening method gives you the same results at the at-home treatment, but in less time and at a slightly higher cost. As with the previous technique, this is a two-step process – meaning you’ll visit our office twice.
During your first visit, we’ll take the same impressions to make your custom trays (which you’ll be able to keep for long term maintenance and touch ups as needed.) We’ll also give you a prescription strength fluoride toothpaste to use for a few days before you return. The formula found in the toothpaste helps prevent you from experiencing sensitivity brought on by whitening.
For your second appointment, you should plan to stay for about an hour and a half. We’ll be doing a back to back series of whitening treatments that use a special light to activate the formula for about 15 minutes at a time. When the process is complete, your teeth will be much brighter than they were before.
You’ll be sent home with your custom trays and over the next few days, if you’d like, you can use them to boost the shade of your teeth even more. You’ll also be given a gel that you can place in your trays to help with sensitivity should you experience any.
Don’t Wait Any Longer
Whichever one of our teeth whitening services you choose to go with, you’ll be able to enjoy the same bright smile. It’s a perfect mini smile makeover and safe for pampering yourself. Don’t wait any longer – come see the friendly staff of Raleigh Dental Arts today to get started.
