The holidays are just around the corner and that means parties and lots of time with family. If you’ve noticed that your smile has dimmed or isn’t looking its best, Dr. Carley can help you achieve your most beautiful smile. At your Albany dentist, we can use teeth whitening to help you walk into the holidays confidently showing off a bright new smile.
What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a safe and effective in-office whitening procedure that can give you dramatic results in as little as 45 minutes. Using a light to accelerate the effects of a hydrogen peroxide solution, this accelerated process can brighten teeth that have been discolored from aging, or certain food and drinks.
Process of Teeth Whitening
In order to start the whitening process, Dr. Carley will complete a comprehensive exam to make sure your teeth and gums are in good health for the procedure. If it’s determined that whitening treatment is the right technique to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted our Santa Barbara dentist will schedule for a cleaning before undergoing the whitening treatment. A gel is applied and a light is used to activate the gel for 15 minutes. This is done three times for a total of 45 minutes, during which the discoloration on your teeth is broken down to leave you with bright white teeth.
Maintaining Teeth Whitening Results
To get the most out of your results, Dr. Carley will custom make whitening trays for you to use at home for touch-ups. Avoiding certain foods that can stain your smile will also help prolong the results of your treatment. Additionally not using tobacco products and keeping up with a good oral hygiene routine will help keep your teeth white and healthy long after your treatment.
