While there are many products for teeth whitening on the market today, teeth whitening done in a dental office can get your teeth brighter and whiter faster. The bleaching solution is much stronger than over-the-counter products.
The take home tooth whitening procedure begins with taking an impression of the teeth and creating a form fitting clear plastic tray. The patient places a small amount of peroxide gel into the tray. The tray is worn over the teeth for one hour per day for approximately three weeks. After the desired results are reached, you can do a touch up bleaching on a monthly basis.
Bleaching will not whiten porcelain crowns or composite tooth-colored bonding or fillings. It is an excellent choice to bleach your teeth before restorative or cosmetic work is done on front teeth to achieve the most beautiful result possible.
Dr. Jaynes also offers Zoom in-office bleaching. The teeth generally get three to eight shades brighter and usually take several 30- to 60-minute visits.
The at-home bleaching kits are relatively inexpensive and offer stunning results. Dr. Jaynes has been offering teeth whitening in his office since 1990, as soon as the technology became available. Hundreds of happy patients have whiter and brighter smiles!
