At Beautiful Dentistry of Greenwich our 06807 dental office provides patients with a teeth whitening procedure that will have them smiling again in just no time. Teeth whitening is a great way to have a smile makeover and to brighten up dulling and yellowing, cracked teeth.
Over time, substances like wine, coffee, and nicotine can discolor teeth as well as using certain medications and antibiotics. Broken teeth can also cause discoloration. White teeth make for an attractive and bright smile, and our state of the art bleaching system is easy. We can perform your teeth whitening at our 06807 dental office, or give you a take home tray for at home use. We’ll first prepare your lips and gums with a special covering so that only your teeth are left exposed, allowing us to safely bleach your teeth without irritation. After we apply the whitening gel any stains are broken down. The entire procedure takes less than an hour.
Our 06807 dental office also offers patients a take home bleaching system that they can use on their own time. A custom made tray is tailor made to your teeth to ensure that the proper amount of bleach is applied. The procedure takes about an hour or and can last for up to two weeks. Total treatment time can take anywhere up to 45 minutes, depending on the amount of teeth bleaching needed, and patients may come in for one to three treatments.
Depending on brushing and oral hygiene habits, your teeth whitening can last for over a year or more. Patients are urged to follow proper oral health care habits and to keep teeth clean in order to minimize discolor. The best way to do this is by abstaining from substances that stain teeth and flossing, brushing, and having annual teeth cleanings done.
