What is Whitening?
Whitening has been used for years to help get and keep people’s teeth bright. We offer several different professional whitening options for our patients to try. In-office treatments and take-home kits are readily available, making it easy for you to find the solution that best fits your smile goals. At Rivers Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we want all of our patients to love the way that they look.
Why would Whitening be needed?
The reason a person would benefit from whitening is because they have stained, discolored and severely yellowed teeth. There are many different factors that can cause your teeth to become this stained. Smoking, drinking tea and coffee, and even taking certain medications can all have an impact on the color of your smile. This is why we recommend whitening to individuals who would benefit from a brighter smile.
Who is a candidate for Whitening?
Dr. Rivers will thoroughly examine your teeth to determine if and when you may need to have whitening done. The goal is to improve the look of your smile in a way that is beneficial and convenient for you. You may benefit from quick in-office whitening, or you might benefit from having take-home kits made for you.
What happens during the Whitening process?
The process will begin with a quick consultation. We will go over the options that we have in the office so that you can find the right solution for your specific needs. Our next goal is for you to come in for the actual treatment. Our in-office whitening is done in about an hour. During this time, a gel is applied to your teeth and a light placed over the teeth to help lift stains and discoloration. Our take-home whitening option is great for individuals who would like to whiten their teeth at home. It involves custom-made trays that you’ll wear at your own convenience with a gel we provide to you.
