In-Office Professional Teeth Whitening

In-office professional teeth whitening is the most common type of professional teeth whitening treatment. In office teeth whitening is typically performed in a dental office and involves the use of a strong bleaching agent that’s applied to the teeth. The bleaching agent is activated using a special light or laser, which speeds up the whitening process.

in-office teeth whiteningIn-office professional teeth whitening treatments usually take about an hour to complete and can provide dramatic results in a single session. This type of treatment is ideal for individuals who want fast, dramatic results or who have deep stains that can’t be effectively treated with at-home whitening kits.

Laser teeth whitening is another effective method, using powerful bleaching agents and the expertise of trained dental professionals to achieve immediate results. Factors such as the strength of the bleaching agent and the duration of the treatment can affect the cost of laser teeth whitening.

Depending on your dentist, you may undergo teeth whitening with:

  • ZOOM! Teeth Whitening Systems
  • Deep Bleaching
  • Opalescence Boost
  • Brite Smile
  • KöR Whitening

At-Home Professional Teeth Whitening

at home teeth whiteningAt-home professional teeth whitening methods are a type of teeth whitening treatment that can be performed at home using custom-made whitening trays and a professional-strength whitening gel. The trays are made from impressions of the patient’s teeth, which ensures a comfortable and precise fit.

At-home professional teeth whitening treatments are typically less expensive than in-office treatments and can provide excellent results over time. These treatments may take longer to achieve the desired results, but they can be a convenient and effective option for individuals who prefer to whiten their teeth at home. These kits use whitening agents, which vary in concentration compared to professional treatments, and can sometimes cause side effects such as tooth sensitivity and gum irritation.

Whitening Treatment for Sensitive Teeth

The teeth whitening process can sometimes cause sensitivity in the teeth and gums. This sensitivity may occur due to the bleaching agent used in the treatment or by the trays used to hold the gel in place.

If you have sensitive teeth, there are several options and considerations to keep in mind when choosing a professional teeth whitening treatment:

  • Choose a dentist who’s experienced in treating sensitive teeth: A dentist who’s experienced in treating sensitive teeth will be able to identify potential problems and adjust the treatment plan accordingly.
  • Use a lower-strength bleaching agent: A lower-strength bleaching agent can be used to minimize the risk of sensitivity. This may require more frequent treatments to achieve the desired results.
  • Use desensitizing agents: Desensitizing agents can be applied to the teeth before or after the whitening treatment to reduce sensitivity.
  • Consider at-home treatments: At-home treatments can be a good option for individuals with sensitive teeth, as they can be used at a slower pace to minimize sensitivity.
