Teeth whitening is the most common cosmetic dental procedure, and can provide fantastic, quick results that can fit into any budget.
Almost anyone is a candidate for teeth whitening. An important thing to keep in mind, however, is that some dark teeth are much more resistant to whitening procedures. Some medications taken during childhood, including tetracycline, can cause teeth darkening that can be difficult to whiten.
What types of whitening are available at Roswell Complete Dentistry?
At Roswell Complete Dentistry, we offer two types of whitening: in office, and take home.
In office whitening utilizes a high-concentration hydrogen peroxide gel which is applied for about an hour. During this time, you are free to watch television or listen to music and relax. It usually takes an average of 3 in-office visits to get your teeth the whitest shade possible.
Take home trays are made using models of your teeth. You are given syringes of hydrogen peroxide gel to wear in the trays for anywhere from 1 hour to overnight. You should expect to get optimal whitening results after wearing the trays for 2-3 weeks. The benefit of the trays is that you can keep them and whiten your teeth when ready for a touch up.
