Find out how professional teeth whitening works.
There are many people who can benefit from getting teeth whitening from our Huntersville, NC, cosmetic dentist Dr. JC Duncan. No matter whether you’re not getting the results you want from whitening toothpastes or you really want to “wow” everyone with a more vibrant smile, it’s time to find out how professional teeth whitening can do just that.
Professional teeth whitening works a bit differently from over-the-counter methods, which makes it more effective and reliable for removing surface stains and for giving you an all-over whiter smile. The first difference is the bleaching gel. Now, any bleaching gel will contain either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These active ingredients work to breakup stain molecules on the surface of your teeth.
Of course, the percentage of the active ingredient is very small in over-the-counter whitening products, which means that you will have to leave the whitening gel on your teeth for a longer period of time to see results. The whitening gel that our Huntersville, NC, dentist uses, on the other hand, has a much higher concentration of the peroxide, which means that we only need to apply it and leave the gel on for 10-15 minutes at a time throughout your one-hour whitening treatment to get the results you want. After just one whitening session, many patients’ smiles were up to five shades whiter, and many of them got exactly the results they wanted in one in-office whitening treatment.
We also understand that in-office whitening might not be in the budget. Or perhaps you prefer to have full control over the whitening process. Whatever the case might be, you can save money and still get a whiter smile by turning to our at-home whitening treatment. With custom-fitted whitening trays and effective whitening gel, you could get the results you want in as a little as one week.
