Even the slightest improvement in your teeth can showcase your smile and make an exceptional difference in the way you look and feel. Dr. Bradley thinks the simplest dental procedure to accomplish this is professional whitening (bleaching).
At-home bleaching is a teeth whitening option that acquires approximately 10 minutes of your time at our office. We simply take an impression of your upper and lower teeth and our staff will fabricate custom mouthguards. We will then give you a whitening kit to whitening your teeth at your convenience in your home. Under this treatment, the patient places the carbamide peroxide gel into the mouthguard. Most patient's notice results from the whitening after one to three days. Total treatment time is 1-2 hours a day for about 5-7days.
Opalescence Xtra Boost is a 38% hydrogen peroxide power bleaching gel. Opalescence is an alterative, conservative method for treating dark, discolored teeth. This method requires two appointments.
First appointment is a three hour procedure. It includes taking impressions of teeth to make bleaching trays, preparation of teeth to accept the bleach, And three 15 minute applications of the bleach. Opalescence will lighten teeth 2-4 shades at this appointment, (depending on how much stain present.)
Second appointment is the delivery of the bleaching trays. You will use these trays to continue to bleach at home to get to the shade you desire.
This is the best and quickest way to get the shade of white you want for your smile. If you have any question about financing options available for this procedure click here or contact us.
