Teeth Whitening In Montana, CA

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental procedure that lightens teeth and helps remove stains and discoloration. Teeth whitening involves bleaching the teeth to make them appear whiter and brighter. The treatment can be performed in the office or at home, but the dentist should be consulted first to determine which method is best. 

Types of Teeth Whitening

  • In-office Teeth Whitening

In-office teeth whitening is a quick, pain-free way to whiten your teeth by up to 8 shades in just one visit. The whitening agent containing a highly concentrated solution of hydrogen peroxide is applied directly to the surfaces of the teeth, which allows it to penetrate the enamel and dentin. The whitening gel is activated by the professional-grade light used during the appointment, which speeds up the whitening process. Most people experience little to no tooth sensitivity, and the procedure is safe for almost everyone.

  • Teeth Whitening at Home

While in-office teeth whitening is the most effective, at-home whitening is also a good option for many patients. It's less expensive than in-office treatments, and it offers effective results as well. If you have sensitive teeth or your teeth have deep stains, then an at-home option may be best. You can even combine your at-home treatment with a professional treatment to maximize your results!

In-home whitening kits use customized trays to hold the bleaching gel against your teeth. You typically need to wear the tray for at least an hour every day until the prescribed treatment time is complete. This varies based on the level of whiteness you want to achieve. Most patients see noticeable results in about two weeks of treatment.

In-office Teeth Whitening Vs. At-Home Teeth Whitening

Unlike take-home whitening kits, professional in-office whitening procedures use stronger bleaching agents that produce faster and more dramatic results. You may also want to consider in-office teeth whitening if you're interested in immediate results or if you like having the help of a professional throughout the process. Additionally, your dentist is able to use techniques to maximize the contact between the teeth and the bleaching agent, leading to more effective results and shorter treatment times.

Professional whitening treatments can also lighten tooth stains that have developed due to tobacco use or certain medications. During an in-office whitening session, your dentist can professionally clean your teeth to remove any surface stains as well.

Many patients choose to combine their in-office treatment with a take-home kit for even more dramatic results. After your in-office treatment, you will receive custom-made trays, which you can use to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home. Combining the two gives you the benefits of both in-office and take-home whitening treatments.

Your dentist can help you choose the best type of professional teeth whitening for your goals, needs, and smile.
