Teeth Whitening from Pembroke Dental is your best option to get the dazzling smile you want in the fastest time, with longest lasting results, and without any unwanted side effects. Dr. Keenan will work with you to determine the ideal solution to get your smile its best white.
While some of our patients may think it’s easier and cheaper to whiten their smiles using over-the-counter products, we’d like to encourage a visit to us before choosing a smile whitening system. Some smile whitening options can actually damage your smile and can even lead to pain. And we don’t want our patients to experience any damage or pain when they’re preparing for their big event!
Many over-the-counter teeth whitening kits have trays or strips that contain the whitening solution. However, since these trays are not custom fitted, the solution can leak onto gums and cause irritation. Additionally, some over-the-counter whiteners can cause tooth sensitivity, and are sometimes ineffective at giving you your desired results.
What does tooth whitening involve?
Take-home tooth whitening usually requires two visits. At the first appointment in our D4 dental practice, Dr. Keenan will take impressions (moulds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear plastic, trays.
At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit, and adjustments will be made if necessary. The trays are worn with special whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening. It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped bleaching.
You will receive care instructions for your teeth and trays, and be encouraged to visit Dr. Keenan regularly to help maintain a beautiful, healthy, white smile.
Teeth whitening cannot be completed in one office visit. For this reason, custom trays worn at home are the best way to whiten your teeth. Whitening teeth depends only upon the strength of whitening gel used, and the time it is on your teeth. The custom trays with a strong whitening gel, work well, are cost effective, and safe.
Tray wear works and works well but you have to be disciplined enough to wear the trays for about 2 weeks.
