Perhaps the most popular and cost-effective way to make a dramatic smile improvement is with cosmetic bleaching, also known as teeth whitening. After a thorough exam, one of our cosmetic dentists will talk with you about your goals and make a teeth whitening plan that can best meet your needs. As our dental treatment before and after photos show, teeth bleaching can produce dramatic results with minimum investment and effort.
There are many factors that contribute to yellow, brown, or gray stains on the teeth. They include many of the things we eat and drink, medications, tobacco use, older dental restorations, and the natural aging process. Because we offer a wide variety of bleaching options, we can come up with a plan and material that best fits your situation. For those who have teeth sensitivity, we offer materials with varying levels of intensity, along with desensitizing gels to make the experience as pleasant as possible. We have bleaching systems that give the patient choices according to their desires. Some bleach is meant for overnight use, Night White, while others are meant for shorter durations during the day, Day White. With either method we make a special bleach tray so that the material is placed in very small amounts in just the right position. Depending upon the level of whiteness desired by the patient, we normally see dramatic results in about two weeks with touch-ups done by the patient once every three months.
Here are two of the most popular teeth whitening options available here at Eureka Smiles:
In-Office Teeth Whitening with Sinsational Smile®
The advanced Sinsational Smile® in-office teeth whitening treatment allows us to create whiter, brighter smiles in as little as 20 minutes. Sinsational Smile® is the first and only “green” certified whitening system and can often be very beneficial for those with sensitive teeth. This technique involves the use of silicone dental trays filled with a special whitening gel. An LED accelerating light will activate the solution and speed up the process, helping you achieve faster treatment and immediate results. Many patients achieve optimal results after just one treatment; however, those who desire even whiter outcomes may require additional sessions to meet their goals. You will also be provided with a take-home Sinsational Smile® whitening pen to help you maintain the results for as long as possible.
At-Home Whitening Kits from Opalescence® GO™
Are you looking for an effective teeth whitening option that you can use at home? Our practice offers Opalescence® Go™ at-home whitening kits for patients who want to whiten their teeth at their own convenience. This technique utilizes advanced dental trays (no impressions will be necessary) in an array of flavors. The trays are pre-filled with professional teeth whitening gel to generate beautiful outcomes while minimizing discomfort. The trays also contain ingredients that can reduce teeth sensitivity during treatment and enhance oral health. They are designed to collect warmth from your body temperature, allowing them to mold and adapt to your teeth in order to make the treatment experience more comfortable and effective. Typical Opalescence® Go™ treatments take about 5 to 10 days to achieve optimal results.
Why choose Eureka Smile Center for your bleaching needs?
Store-bought teeth bleaching materials are typically weaker than what professionals offer, and their trays are seldom as comfortable or well-fitting when compared to those obtained in a professional dentist’s office. Our skilled dental team has the experience and quality materials to create a treatment program that fits your particular needs while we monitor your progress and make modifications as needed.
Other Teeth Whitening Options
For patients who are affected by deep, dark stains too severe for standard teeth whitening procedures to be effective, we offer a number of advanced alternatives that can address your concerns. These include cosmetic options, such as customized porcelain veneers or full porcelain crowns, that can provide durable and beautiful solutions. Our dentist will evaluate your needs to determine whether teeth whitening or other techniques are best for your individual goals.
