Do you wish that you could erase stains and discoloration from your teeth in an instant or just want a little boost in the brightness of your smile? Teeth whitening is the most popular and affordable cosmetic treatment option that patients use to improve the appearance of their smiles.
You don’t need to feel insecure about your teeth. At PS Dental, we’ll develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs so you can whiten your teeth in the office for instant results or enjoy the convenience of our take-home treatment.
The active ingredient of hydrogen peroxide in the whitening agent makes your teeth porous so it can penetrate through the layers of your teeth to banish not only extrinsic but also intrinsic stains. If you want to whiten your teeth, contact us at PS Dental to schedule a consultation.
Dental restorations do not respond to teeth whitening.
Dr. Sinha will perform an oral exam to check for signs of oral health problems and to assess the shade of your teeth.
After having an open and honest discussion about your aesthetic goals, Dr. Sinha will recommend a treatment plan for you.
We will always protect your soft tissues before applying any whitening gel.
In the office, we apply the whitening gel directly to your enamel. If you are doing this at home, you will apply it to the inside of your trays and wear them over your teeth.
After whitening your teeth, we will provide you with aftercare tips on how to maintain your new shade.
Many of our patients want to whiten their teeth but struggle to find the time in their hectic schedules to set aside time for a dental appointment. Thankfully, with take-home whitening, you never have to leave your house.
This is also a suitable option for sensitive teeth due to the lower peroxide concentration. After coming in for a quick appointment to take teeth impressions, a dental lab will fabricate custom-made whitening trays for you to wear at home.
Once ready, you come back to the office to pick them up and begin your treatment. Instructions will tell you how to apply the whitening agent and how long to wear the whitening trays. Typically, treatment takes 1 to 2 weeks to achieve final results.
This is the most effective and instant whitening treatment that can lighten your teeth by up to 10 shades in a single one-hour appointment. After holding your mouth open with a cheek protractor and using a protective gel to prevent your gums from coming into contact with the whitening agent, we will apply the whitener to your tooth enamel.
This gel is light-activated so we will expose your teeth to UV light to cure it. This catalyzes the reaction for faster results. After an hour, this will be rinsed out and you’ll see dramatic results instantly.
Teeth whitening can last for up to 3 years with proper care.
