Teeth whitening may be an excellent way to restore your smile, while contributing to a healthier and more youthful appearance.
There are a variety of options when looking to brighten your teeth:
Take Home Teeth Whitening Treatment
We offer custom-fitted whitening trays at our Arlington dental office. With at-home whitening, results can be noticed right away, but it may take up to a month to see full results. We recommend using custom fitted trays for precise application of the whitening agent. This helps to prevent irritation to the soft tissue (gums).
In-Office Teeth Whitening Treatment
A quick and no cost consultation can be performed in our office in order to determine if you are a candidate for in office whitening. While most are candidates, dental work such as composite fillings, crowns and veneers do not change color with the whitening process. Our consultation will give you a realistic idea of what you can expect in order to achieve a successful outcome. The process takes approximately 1 ½ hours in office. This involves isolating your gum tissues in order to protect them from the whitening process. A whitening solution is applied and a laser light activates the process. After a maximum of 3 sessions of 20 minutes you will see desired results immediately. You will be sent home with written instructions on how to care for your whitening experience.
Our team is devoted to helping you achieve and maintain a beautiful and healthy smile. If you are considering teeth whitening, contact our Arlington dentist for a consultation. We will recommend a method that is best based on your individual needs.
