Professional Teeth Whitening Solutions
You don’t have to be embarrassed by dull or dingy-looking teeth anymore. Bleaching, or whitening, makes teeth whiter and more attractive. There are many over the counter whitening products available, but keep in mind that we offer professional strength bleaching that is quicker and longer lasting. Gentle Dental Care offers two methods depending on your needs and your budget.
BRITESMILE is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It’s safe, effective, and very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter (up to 15 shades). The convenience of BRITESMILE in comparison to days of using strips or wearing trays makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual. The BRITESMILE whitening procedure is simple. First, we carefully perform steps to isolate your lips and gums. The clinician then applies the proprietary BRITESMILE whitening gel that is activated by a specially designed light. A fluoride treatment completes the procedure. You’ll be delighted with the results.
TRAY METHOD bleaching involves having impressions taken and using them to make laboratory fabricated custom vinyl trays. A peroxide gel is placed in the trays and the trays with gel are worn for 30 to 60 minutes at a time. The entire process takes three to four weeks of daily use. Different strengths of gel may be used, however, the higher the strength the greater the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity. Fluoride gel can help correct the sensitivity problem. The tray method is recommended for badly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining. With severe staining, it may take a few months of use to see significant color improvement.
The end result with either method is the same. The main difference is cost, as the tray method is about 1/3 the cost of BRITESMILE.
