White teeth are often a good indicator of good health and excellent oral hygiene. Hiebert Smith Dental Group offers two effective teeth whitening treatments. You can have your teeth whitened in our dental office or at home with an at-home teeth whitening kit.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office whitening begins with a professional cleaning followed by the application of a whitening gel activated with a tooth-safe dental light. The treatment takes about a half-hour and the usual results are a brightening of one to two shades. To keep their smiles continually bright, many of our patients choose to include this treatment at each of their Hygiene Recare visits.
Advantages of Teeth Whitening
One of the greatest advantages of teeth whitening, is it’s ability to counteract overall teeth staining. Staining can occur from food, tobacco use, age or injury. Other advantages of teeth whitening include the following:
- Supervision from a professional
- Safe and simple for your teeth
What Are Custom At-Home Teeth Whitening Kits?
Custom teeth whitening kits are an alternative to in-office whitening. You can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home. The kit comes with the whitening gel and your custom-fit trays that match the contour of your mouth and teeth. The trays need to be worn for 30 minutes each day and it can take two to four weeks to achieve the desired results.
