In-office whitening is the best way to restore your smile quickly. With in-office whitening from Dr. Tom Nguyen at Willow Creek Smiles, you can boost your smile by 5-10 shades in just a single appointment. This is ideal if you need fast results for a special occasion like an anniversary, wedding, photo shoot, business conference or any other event.
The treatment begins with a thorough teeth cleaning to remove plaque and debris from your teeth. Then, your teeth will be isolated and dried by using oral retractors and gauze. This keeps your gums, tongue, lips and cheeks away from the whitening solution, which can be irritating to your oral tissue.
Next, a special protective solution is applied to your gums to protect them from the whitening treatment. Dr. Tom Nguyen will apply a peroxide-based whitening compound to the front surfaces of your teeth. Then, he will use a special UV light to excite the peroxide molecules, boosting the efficiency of the whitening compound.
Depending on your desired level of whitening, this treatment may be left in place for up to 30-60 minutes, or may be removed and reapplied. Once the compound has taken effect, Dr. Nguyen will rinse away the whitener, revealing your beautiful smile. Depending on your level of staining, you may need to schedule additional follow-up treatments in the future.
The process begins with a quick visit to Willow Creek Smiles. Dr. Tom Nguyen will take dental impressions of your teeth using putty, and then send these impressions to a dental lab, where your custom whitening trays will be made. This may take a few weeks.
Once your trays have been built and sent to Willow Creek Smiles, you’ll come to pick them up, along with several tubes of whitening compound. Dr. Tom Nguyen will also provide you with instructions on the use of your whitening treatment. Usually, you will whiten your teeth at home for a few hours each day, or overnight, for 2-3 weeks. This may differ based on your level of staining and your desired results.
Simply follow the instructions outlined by Dr. Nguyen and you’ll end up with amazing results that are comparable to an in-office whitening treatment. Take-home treatment offer more gradual results and allows you to have more control.
Many people wonder what makes professional grade whitening so much better than over-the-counter options. Though you still may see results when using over-the-counter products, such as Crest Whitestrips, they aren’t as thorough or safe as the whitening a cosmetic dentist can provide.
At Willow Creek Smiles, we create custom trays to make sure all of your teeth are whitened correctly. Over-the-counter options may not fit your teeth properly, leading to discomfort during treatment or uneven results. Professional whitening ensures your comfort, safety, and smile. Call Willow Creek Smiles today to learn more about the beautiful results of our whitening products and schedule an appointment today.
At Willow Creek Smiles, we use professional grade whitening solution and create custom trays for each of our patients. Custom trays help ensure that the whitening solution only ends up where it’s intended, and not on your gums. Results of teeth-whitenings vary, but professional whitenings can get your teeth up to 10 shades whiter. Visit our office or give us a call today to get started on a brighter smile!
