Teeth whitening can often provide a quick, painless and economical smile makeover, perfect for a special occasion or to bring back a more youthful appearance. Cosmetic dentistry offers many ways to brighten your smile, but teeth whitening is the easiest solution.
In our Woodbridge dental office, Dr. Joseph Cavallo, MAGD, DDS recommends a take home teeth whitening kit for results far superior to over the counter options that are widely available.
About Professional Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening will whiten your teeth up to 8 shades brighter over the course of treatment, typically a couple of weeks.
Dr. Cavallo will create custom bleaching trays to hold the special tooth whitening gel comfortably and securely against your teeth, minimizing gum irritation and providing an even distribution of the bleaching agent. Just pop them into your mouth to whiten in the car, in your office or while you are relaxing at home.
In a few days, you’ll uncover the bright smile you always wanted!
Teeth Whitening Results
The results of teeth whitening will vary based on each individual. Most patients can expect whitening to last six months to a year with good oral hygiene.
Touch-up treatment every four to six months can help extend the results of your treatment. Visiting the dentist regularly and avoiding smoking and dark foods will also help to keep your teeth white and bright.
