Professional Teeth Whitening
Who doesn’t love a bright, white smile? Professional whitening is one of our most requested cosmetic procedures. Our smiles can become dull and discolored for a variety of reasons including smoking, eating certain foods, drinking coffee, tea or red wine, or poor oral hygiene. Teeth whitening can instantly enhance the appearance of a stained smile.
At Beckett Dental Care, we offer both in-office and custom take-home whitening systems. We love these whitening treatments because they deliver excellent results without causing sensitivity or damaging gum tissue.
- Our take-home whitening system includes custom dental impressions, from which we make trays that fit precisely around your teeth. Once we have your trays ready to go, we will bring you back to the office, and do a home whitening treatment run through with you! The best part of our take home system is that you now have custom trays that you re-use anytime your smile needs a touch-up. Just stop by the office to pick up some more whitening product.
- Our in-office whitening system, GLO, which is the newest technology available in advanced in-house whitening. With the GLO system, which takes place in-office with 4- eight-minute sessions, you will leave with a smile up to 8 shades brighter!
Teeth Whitening Treatment
What can I expect with teeth whitening?
- Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stain, dull or discolored smiles.
- Before we begin any whitening treatment, our doctors will evaluate your smile to help determine which type of whitening treatment will be best for you!
- It is important for our doctors to determine the origin of discoloration of your teeth so that we choose the right whitening system for you. Dental staining falls into two categories:
- Extrinsic stains are caused by products like coffee, tea, berries, soy sauce and red wine. Over time, teeth actually become more absorbent and become more vulnerable to staining from foods and beverages.
- Intrinsic stains are caused by injuries, medications, and fluorosis. These stains actually begin inside our teeth and can be difficult to remove with even the most effective whitening methods.
- Professional Whitening is a great option for most patients but sometimes, patients with severely gray or brown stained teeth, large pits or existing crowns, bridges and fillings may be better candidates for veneers or cosmetic bonding.
