Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening provides several valuable benefits, some of which include:
- Removes stains from food, beverages, medications, and more
- Brightens discolored teeth back to their natural white shade
- Boosts your confidence
- Enhances the appearance of your smile
Our Whitening Process
When you visit our office for teeth whitening, the first thing Dr. Robson will do is examine your teeth and gums to determine if they’re healthy enough for the procedure. Once he’s signed off that you’re ready, he’ll protect your gums to ensure they aren’t harmed by the whitening solution.
After Dr. Robson applies the solution to your teeth, he’ll activate it with a special bleaching lamp to remove stains and discolored spots from your smile. When the bleaching is finished, he’ll rinse off the solution with water to complete the process.
The entire whitening treatment takes less than two hours and you can enjoy immediate results. When you leave our office, you’ll be ready to show off your new smile to everyone you know.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does professional teeth whitening cost?
In most cases, teeth whitening costs about $500 per session. Many patients can achieve the results they’re looking for in just one appointment.
Is teeth whitening safe?
Yes — the bleaching solution is totally safe and won’t harm your teeth. You may experience some sensitivity immediately after the procedure, but this should fade quickly.
How long does teeth whitening last?
If you want your results to last, Dr. Robson recommends avoiding foods and drinks that are known to stain your teeth, such as coffee and red wine. Practicing excellent oral hygiene and visiting our practice for regular checkups will also help your teeth stay white. If your teeth start to look dull or stained again, you can always schedule another whitening session.
Do store-bought teeth whitening products work?
There are a variety of over-the-counter teeth whitening products available in stores. While the convenience of this may be appealing, these products can’t match the safety and effectiveness of professional teeth whitening at a dentist’s office. By using these products, you may get uneven brightness or have to wait much longer for the results you expect.
