If you are not entirely happy with the color of your teeth, you might consider tooth whitening with our "Deep Bleaching System". It is our goal to provide our patients with the most effective products for what they want to achieve with their tooth whitening. We offer the most advanced tooth whitening system available today. The bleaching process lightens discolorations of the enamel.
Often a smile can be improved simply by whitening teeth that have stained and yellowed over time. This process is ideal for patients who have healthy teeth and gums.
For years, there have been two problems that have challenged and frustrated dentists and patients about teeth bleaching:
1. The extreme unpredictability of teeth bleaching
2. The acute sensitivity it can cause to many during the bleaching process
A bleaching technique may work well on one person, and virtually not work at all on the very next person. And many times when it does seem to work, it just doesn't last very long.
A technique has been developed which is now recognized all over the world as the most effective whitening technique ever
invented. The technique is so effective that it will even whiten tetracycline discolored teeth—which were previously thought to be impossible to bleach. Just imagine getting your teeth MUCH whiter, and having it last for your ENTIRE life! With very little periodic maintenance at home, the results are entirely permanent.
Deep BleachingTM System:
Dr. Dobson will evaluate your teeth with you to determine if you are a good candidate for tooth whitening. All patients should undergo a cleaning prior to the bleaching appointment to acquire optimum bleaching. Amy, our hygienist, or an assistant will determine the shade of your teeth prior to whitening.
Deep BleachingTM Technique:
1st Appointment-Impressions are taken of the upper and lower teeth.
2nd Appointment - The first session of Deep BleachingTM will start with a quality polish of the facial surfaces of the teeth. Next, is the conditioning phase of your first visit, which will 'condition' the teeth to absorb oxygen more readily from the bleaching gel in your At Home Deep Bleaching Trays. This very liberal application of desensitizer is a crucial step in the process to prevent sensitivity. For those super-sensitive patients, additional swabs of desensitizer may be sent home for further applications. Do not expect a tremendous color change from this 'conditioning' visit.
Bleaching trays will then be tried into the mouth to ensure proper fit. Two 20 minute sessions of leaching completes the first (conditioning) visit.
You will be given a bleaching kit. This kit will include syringes of bleaching gel and desensitizing swabs. The degree of whitening and possible sensitivity will vary from individual to individual.
Immediately following the 'conditioning visit', you will wear your At-Home trays for 14 consecutive nights. After the 14th night of at-home Deep BleachingTM, the final Deep BleachingTM will be performed in our office, and will provide additional whitening over what will have already been accomplished. The result will be WOW!
3rd Appointment - A final application of desensitizer and three 20 minute sessions of bleaching will provide additional whitening over what will have already been accomplished. Your final bleaching shade will be checked. We will record your shade and for those patients who are particularly difficult to bleach, (tetracycline) patients, another week of bleaching may be required.
Is Whitening Safe?
Yes. Clinical studies and extensive research show that whitening your teeth under the supervision of a dentist is extremely safe.
It is one of the safest cosmetic procedures available today.
