There are many products and techniques available for individuals who desire a brighter smile through teeth whitening. It can be difficult to choose the method that is right for you, but our cosmetic dentistry services in Grand Blanc can help determine which option is best. The best way to begin any teeth whitening process is to schedule an appointment and talk to your doctor about the differences between in-office professional teeth whitening and at-home whitening.
- In-Office Teeth Whitening
- The first option is performed at the dentist’s office and may include the use of a whitening lamp or laser to enhance the effectiveness of the whitening gel by accelerating the peroxide. During an office visit, Dr. Bryant will apply the whitening gel and depending on which system you choose, will shine a light source directly onto the teeth. The whole office visit will usually take about 90 minutes and has immediate results.
- At-Home Teeth Whitening
- Tray bleaching is a type of whitening that uses custom made trays and gel that is only available through your dentist. The gel is placed in custom fitted trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. As the peroxide in the gel breaks down, stains on the teeth are lifted. Unlike over the counter strips, the process whitens all your natural teeth and may contain ingredients intended to provide maximum comfort. This process usually takes 10-14 days but you may notice results in as little as three to five days.
