Teeth Whitening – Stain, Stain, Go Away!

 Teeth whitening is our number one requested cosmetic dentistry procedure . While many people buy the “supermarket brand” of whitener, our in-clinic whitening procedure produces better results, and in only a fraction of the time.

Is Whitening for Everyone?

We can advise you on whether you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. Those people with yellowish teeth typically have better results than those with brownish or grayish hues. Also, as whiteners have no effect on tooth-colored composite fillings or teeth that are bonded, we can assist in ensuring your smile is brightened evenly.

Are In-Clinic Procedures Better than At-Home Procedures?

The whitening procedure that we do at Southern Dental Care – Smile By Design generally takes about an hour and the results are immediate. After ensuring that the gums are protected, a bleaching agent is applied to the teeth.

Some people experience tooth sensitivity after using bleaching agents. This is usually temporary and goes away after completion of the whitening process. Others notice irritation of their gums – this occurs especially when the bleaching tray is not custom made and the gums come in contact with the bleaching agent. Our clinic also offers take-home kits along with a custom-made mouthpiece to help prevent gum irritation.
