Everyone wants a whiter, brighter smile. Tooth whitening has become one of the most requested dental procedures at our practice for cosmetic dentistry in Las Vegas. Dr. Thomas Kintonis and offer both in office whitening and home whitening options to brighten your teeth.
In Office Dental Procedures for Tooth Whitening
In office whitening provides the most dramatic results. During your appointment, we will apply a professional strength bleaching solution to your teeth. A laser may be used to enhance your results and expedite the process. Depending upon your starting shade or degree of tooth discoloration, one or more appointments may be necessary to achieve desired results.
Home Dental Procedures for Tooth Whitening
For those patients who prefer to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home, Dr. Thomas Kintonis and Dr. Zachary Soard offer home tooth whitening. Providing a more subtle approach, home whitening does not generate the instantly dramatic results of in office whitening dental procedures. Instead, your teeth arrive at the desired shade gradually over the period of a few weeks.
We will create custom whitening trays for you. A custom whitening tray designed specifically for your mouth will not only be comfortable, it will help to contain the bleaching agent to the area of the teeth, protecting the gum tissue. You will be instructed to fill your trays with a professional strength bleaching agent and wear every day, for 30 minutes to an hour, usually for a period of one to two weeks.
While bleaching products can be purchased relatively inexpensively at any corner drugstore, there are several reasons to opt for professional home whitening dental procedures.
• Drugstore versions of teeth whitening products are used unsupervised and can increase the sensitivity of your teeth and possibly cause injury to your gum tissues.
• The whitening agent used by professional dentists can contain twice as much of the active agent carbamide peroxide, more effectively brightening your smile.
• The ill-fitting, generally sized trays associated with over the counter bleaching products can be uncomfortable and ineffective.
