What is in-office power bleaching?

In-office power bleaching is a professional teeth whitening treatment that uses strong bleaching agents to remove stains and discolorations from the surface of your teeth. We use both Opalescence and Zoom! teeth whitening systems to bring forth a brighter, more vibrant smile for our patients, all while they relax in the dental chair!

What can I expect during my professional teeth whitening visit?

During the appointment, your dentist will apply a protective barrier to protect your gums and then use a special light or laser to activate the bleaching agent. You may experience some sensitivity during this procedure, but it should subside shortly after the treatment has been completed. Afterward, you can expect to have noticeably whiter teeth and a brighter smile!

How long will the results of my in-office whitening last?

The results of in-office whitening generally last up to two years with proper oral hygiene and after-care. To ensure that you keep your teeth looking their brightest, we recommend scheduling regular follow-up appointments and avoiding foods or drinks that could stain your teeth. With the proper maintenance, you can enjoy a beautiful white smile for many years!

Who is a good fit for professional teeth whitening services?

It’s important to note that not everyone is an ideal candidate for professional teeth whitening. If you have preexisting dental problems such as cavities or gum disease, discussing these with our dentists before starting any cosmetic procedure is best. Our team will provide personalized advice based on your situation so you can safely and effectively achieve a brighter smile!
