A Brighter smile is on many wish lists, but too many patients waste time and money on store bought teeth whitening solutions that have little to no impact on their smiles. Don’t invest unnecessary time in these ineffective teeth whitening treatments. Instead, call RiverPlace Dental to find out more about professional teeth whitening options from skilled, Portland cosmetic dentist, Megan McInnis, DDS. Dr. McInnis and her dedicated team offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening solutions that deliver flawless, beautiful results up to ten shades brighter for some patients.
Patients can experience varying levels of dental discoloration with a variety of causes, including:
For patients who want to quickly and predictably achieve flawless, bright white results, in-office teeth whitening may be the best option. These treatments are safe, simple, and effective. We protect soft tissue using rubber shields. Then, we apply a thin coating of professional grade whitening gel and allow it to work for about twenty minutes. After the first twenty minutes, we’ll examine the results, and we can reapply as necessary to achieve the desired brightness. In most cases, patients receive their desired results in three twenty minute applications or fewer. Depending on the individual patient, teeth can be brightened up to ten shades.
Unlike store bought teeth whitening kits that use one size fits all application trays and low doses of active whitening agents, our professional take-home teeth whitening kits offer treatment using custom crafted application trays and professional doses of active whitening agent. When applied for about half an hour each day, patients can achieve the same results possible with in-office whitening over the course of ten to fourteen days of treatments. Take-home whitening is a great option for patients with sensitive teeth, and they are also helpful to periodically touch up the results of in-office teeth whitening.
Not cosmetic dentistry solution is right for every patient. That’s why we partner with patients to create a personalized treatment plan to meet their needs. If you do decide that professional teeth whitening at RiverPlace Dental is right for you, you’ll experience numerous benefits, including:
