Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that is used to remove the stains and discoloration from the surface of the teeth. Whiter teeth help you sport a more confident smile. All the teeth whitening solutions that we offer are tested safe and are known to have lasting effects on the teeth.
Conventional teeth whitening
It is the most widely-used whitening procedure. The process is quite simple and will not require more than a single visit to the dentist’s office. The dentist will clean your teeth thoroughly to remove any foreign particles and food debris present on the teeth. A rubber dam is placed on the teeth to cover the gums, after which a whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide is applied to it. After a few minutes, the gel liberates oxygen molecules that help to remove the staining particles. The gel can be rinsed off, and the procedure may be repeated to get whiter teeth.
At-home teeth whitening
Teeth whitening need not necessarily be done at a dental practice. If you wish to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your house at your convenience, you can definitely do that with our at-home teeth whitening solution. When you visit our practice for a consultation, the dentist takes a highly precise mold of your teeth and uses it to fabricate plastic trays. You can take them home along with a prescribed whitening gel. You will have to squeeze a small amount of whitening gel on to the trays and put them on for a few minutes. The trays prevent the saliva in your mouth from coming in contact with the whitening gel, thereby preventing dilution.
Laser teeth whitening
Some patients may not want to spend a long time in the dental chair while getting their teeth whitened due to their tight schedule. Worry not, as we have a solution that is quicker and more effective. Laser teeth whitening is the process of using a photosensitive whitening gel instead of the conventional one. The dentist applies the gel on the teeth and uses an activating light of the right intensity to activate it. The procedure can be completed in less time, and the results obtained are often much better and last longer.
