Dentist in Vega Alta
For those people whose smiles are challenged by dull or discolored teeth our dentist in Vega Alta
at Champion Dental offers teeth whitening services, which might be just the thing they need to get their bright smile back. As they age almost everyone’s smile loses most of its shiny brilliance, decades of eating and drinking, smoking or the use of some prescription drugs can stain teeth and rob them of their white sheen.
Teeth whitening can be done by our dentist in Vega Alta
either in the office or by the patient at home. In either case of our at home whitening patients bleaching program starts with a set of custom fitted trays that are fabricated for each patient in a lab from impressions that our doctor takes. These custom trays are key to an effective whitening treatment since they are fitted to hold our professional strength bleaching material snuggly against all of the patient’s teeth for maximum effectiveness of the treatment. The custom fitted tray and the professional bleaching agent are what makes our bleaching treatments so much more effective than those one-size fits all bleaching kits available in drugstores. For those patients choosing the convenience of at home bleaching they will generally use the trays with the bleaching agent for two to three hours a day for a week or two depending on the degree of staining on their teeth. Our dentist will monitor the treatment and supply any touch ups that become necessary.
For those teeth whitening patients that prefer more immediate results our dentist in Vega Alta
uses an in-office laser whitening procedure that only takes about an hour. Our doctor will spread a gel containing the bleaching agent on your teeth and then use a special laser to activate the bleaching agent. After 15 minutes the bleaching agent is cleared off the teeth and then the whole procedure is repeated two or three times. The results are dramatic most patients see their teeth look at least seven shades whiter. No matter which type of whitening treatment is better for you make an appointment with our practice to discuss just how to brighten your smile again.
