A confident smile can change your life. But what happens when you are not confident about it? If the only things keeping you from flaunting a bright smile are stains and signs of discoloration, Dr. Chung can help you brighten and whiten your teeth and improve your self-confidence with professional teeth whitening solutions.
Professional teeth whitening can remove years of stains and discoloration from your teeth. It can efficiently remove extrinsic stains from coffee, tea, wine, tobacco, and intrinsic stains caused by age or medication.
WHAT IS TEETH WHITENING?
Teeth whitening is the process of removing stains from the surface of the teeth and brightening their color. At Palm Court Dental, we offer in-house teeth whitening solutions that give instant results or at-home whitening solutions for more convenience. In-office whitening treatments are among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures nowadays because they can brighten the teeth by up to 8 shades.
HOW DOES TEETH WHITENING WORK?
The first step is to assess your smile and determine the initial shade of your teeth. Dr. Chung will take photos to monitor the treatment progress. Next, your teeth will be cleaned and plaque and tartar accumulations will be removed from their surface.
Once the teeth are clean, the whitening procedure is started by applying a rubber dam to protect the gums from the whitening solutions and applying the solution to the teeth. The whitening gel will stay on the teeth for about 15 minutes and will then be rinsed off. The process of applying the gel will be repeated as many times as necessary to achieve the color you want. The entire procedure takes less than 90 minutes to complete and then you are free to enjoy your new bright smile.
If you prefer to whiten your teeth at home, Dr. Chung can customize teeth whitening trays for you. Along with the trays, you will receive the special whitening gel and instructions on how to use them. You should see the results of the at-home whitening treatment within two weeks.
