A gorgeous smile involves more than straight teeth and aligned gums. As people age, their teeth tend to yellow, and this process may be accelerated with the consumption of certain foods and beverages. The use of certain medications lead to the yellowing of teeth, and all impact a person’s self-esteem and desire to smile. Today, teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures requested, and it’s easy to see why. A bright smile is one that people wish to show off. There are numerous options available in the area for consumers today, such as the use of professionally fabricated whitening trays as well as Brite Smile, being the preferred choice of many. Following is what everyone should know about these popular dental services we provide.
We use two main services for whitening:
- Brite Smile in office power whitening
- Professionally fabricated whitening trays
Brite Smile In-Office Power Whitening
The first step in the process involves cleaning the teeth. This ensures any plaque is removed and the teeth are ready for the whitening solution. Once this has been done, the whitening gel is applied to the teeth in the concentration deemed appropriate by the dentist.
After the teeth have been coated with the gel, the special blue light used in the Brite Smile system is positioned over the teeth. Once illuminated, it activates the gel used in the oxidation process. Patients find they can take a nap during the procedure, read a book, listen to music or watch TV. The gel sits on the teeth under the light for 20 minutes, and this process is repeated three times. Once the three treatments are complete, the teeth look brighter and the smile is more luminous.
The Benefits Of Brite Smile In-Office Power Whitening
Individuals find Brite Smile power whitening helps to fix any yellow, brown, or spotted stains on the teeth. People of any age benefit from this procedure, and the smile improves in no time at all. It’s revitalized and the brightness is restored, allowing individuals to feel confident once again. Thanks to the quick results, patients see they can change their appearance in only one office visit.
The procedure is very safe, and the risk of sensitivity in the gums and teeth is reduced, as the dentist carefully controls the amount of solution used, where it is placed, and the length of time it remains on the teeth. In addition, the dentist may also use fluoride, potassium nitrate, or another product to decrease sensitivity. Although the cost is higher than seen with products designed for use at home, patients find the results to be well worth the additional cost.

In only a few days your custom whitening trays will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special whitening agent that you put into the clear trays. With usually less than an hour of wear per day, our special whitening agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile.
Dental whitening can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in whitening technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile.
