<b>What is Whitening?</b>
Whitening is a procedure that involves lightening your teeth by multiple shades. You will find that you are able to erase years of discoloration using the methods we have available. At the Boutqiue for Cosmetic Dentistry, we are committed to improving your appearance using safe, trusted options. This is why we offer both in-house and take-home whitening for you to choose the one best suited to your smile needs.
<b>Why would someone need Whitening?</b>
The reason you would need whitening is because you’re tired of feeling bad about your appearance. This can be an issue if your teeth are discolored, stained and yellowed. You might be trying to look better because of an upcoming event. You can easily come into the office for treatment whenever it is necessary.
<b>Who is a candidate for Whitening?</b>
Dr. Azy will examine all of your teeth to see if you are eligible to have whitening done. Patients should have otherwise healthy teeth that are free of cavities and other problems. You should be aware that whitening will not lighten restorations. This include veneers, bonding, fillings and crowns.
<b>What happens during the Whitening process?</b>
The in-house whitening option that we have available involves applying gel to the teeth. This gel helps to lift stains and remove discoloration. The next option is to have a light applied to the teeth while the gel is applied. You can expect treatment to take about 60 minutes before your teeth are whitened by multiple shades. The other option that we have for you here at the Boutqiue for Cosmetic Dentistry involves using a take-home kit. The kit is made using impressions of your teeth to create customized trays. The whitening trays are used at any time while at home, and we will provide you with all of the instructions necessary to ensure that you are wearing them in the correct manner.
