Tooth Whitening from Complete Family Dentistry is a popular procedure to make teeth whiter and brighter, and therefore more attractive. Bleaching can be used to whitening stained and discolored teeth, or simply to enhance a dull smile. Either way, tooth whitening is a safe and relatively painless procedure ideal for most patients. Our Ocoee dental office offers two methods of whitening: in-office whitening and tray whitening.
In-office whitening at our Ocoee dental office is ideal for anyone wanting immediate results. The entire process takes place in our state of the art Ocoee office in about an hour, making it the perfect choice for busy individuals. In this process, a protective gel is applied to your gums to protect the soft tissue. A special light-activated gel is then applied to your teeth and a special light or laser is used to enhance the action of the agent – making your teeth whiter and brighter. As a final step, we take impressions of your teeth to create custom trays for at home touch-ups, and give you instructions for keeping your smile bright. The result is dramatically whiter teeth that will last for years.
Tray whitening is a less expensive whitening treatment you can use while in the comfort of your own home. We will first take an impression of your mouth to create a customized clear whitening trays for you to wear. Within a few days your trays will be ready to be picked up and we will show you how to apply the special bleaching material to the trays. The whitening gel trays should be worn 30-60 minutes up to twice a day. At the end of this period, you will see maximum whitening results that are nothing short of dazzling. Occasional treatment can be used at your convenience to maintain your new smile.
If teeth whitening is desired, we recommend the treatment of any restorations and removal of any decay prior to this procedure. The periodontium also need to be in a healthy state in order to proceed with teeth whitening. Many of our Orlando area patients have a desire for cosmetic dentistry but we are committed to maintaining healthy and bacteria free teeth prior to any elective procedures including bonding, veneers, whitening, crowns, and dental implants.
