Teeth Whitening Treatment
At Fuller Dental, we offer two types of professional teeth whitening treatments to meet your needs and help improve the aesthetics of your smile.
In-Office Teeth Whitening Treatment: In-office teeth whitening takes a little over an hour to complete to give you dramatic, beautiful results. During your visit, we will protect your mouth and gums by applying a protective gel on sensitive areas. We will then apply a light-activated whitening gel to your teeth and cure the gel with a special light. For your convenience, we will take impressions of your teeth to create teeth whitening trays that you can use at home for periodic touch-ups.
At-Home Teeth Whitening Treatment: At-home teeth whitening is a cost-effective solution to brighten and make over your smile. Patients will need to visit our Burlington dental office in order for your dentist to take an impression of your teeth to make customized clear whitening trays. Your whitening trays will take a few days to complete. Once completed, patients can wear their whitening tray for 30-60 minutes a day, twice a day. Patients can expect to see results gradually appear within a few weeks.
Teeth Whitening FAQs
How many teeth whitening treatments do I need for white teeth?
Your teeth whitening treatment results will depend on how discolored your teeth are, and which option you choose. A single in-office teeth whitening treatment can leave your teeth up to 8 shades brighter. Most patients usually only need a single treatment to achieve their desired results. Your dentist can help you choose the appropriate option for your specific smile.
Can teeth whitening damage my teeth?
Excessive, and too many teeth whitening treatments in a short period can damage your teeth’s enamel. There is also a risk of tooth damage if you get teeth whitening from unreliable and questionable sources. A common side-effect of teeth whitening is temporary tooth sensitivity. It will go away after a couple of days and does not cause permanent damage.
Can I whiten dental restorations like dentures, veneers, or crowns?
Dental prosthetics can not be whitened with teeth whitening products like strips and bleaching trays. They can no be whitened with traditional teeth whitening treatments at the dentist either. If you have an old dental prosthesis that has become discolored, it is best to replace it completely before trying to whiten it. Replacing it brings more added benefits.
