Teeth whitening treatments are popular solutions for dull and discolored smiles. Patients with staining of their enamel are welcome to speak to a dentist at John L. Aurelia, DDS, PLLC to learn about the many ways they can rejuvenate the smile without negative consequences. Patients may also be seeking an alternative to teeth whitening products available at the local drugstore as they may have had little to no results by using them.
Teeth whitening treatment expectations will vary depending on the type of whitening method used. John L. Aurelia, DDS, PLLC offers many different variations. Patients can choose to use Crest professional whitening strips which are stronger and more effective than those available over-the-counter. The strips are worn for a specific period each day and then discarded. Teeth whitening treatment with our Ultradent take-home kits are a little different. The dentist uses impressions to create trays that fit over the dental arches and they are used along with whitening gel inside. The trays are worn for an hour a day for several weeks to obtain desired results. The last type of teeth whitening treatment is our Zoom! in-office power bleaching, which allows patients to sit back and relax while whitening gel is activated with a specialized light to brighten the smile up to eight shades whiter in about one hour. This is the fastest method of whitening the teeth but also the most expensive. However, many patients are very satisfied with the results and use take-home whitening methods to maintain the results.
