Greenville Teeth Whitening from Dedicated Dentistry
Brightening your smile can be a great way to increase your level of confidence. This boost of self-esteem leads to a more natural response to the world and the freedom to express yourself more openly. If you have developed dental staining over time and are finding that you restrain the urge to smile or laugh, you might want to consider this simple but effective treatment.
Dr. Barton Aiken provides in-office teeth whitening in Greenville and prefers the highly effective Opalescence® brand for both his chairside treatments and the professional take-home teeth whitening he provides to his patients who prefer to brighten their teeth on their schedule at home.
Both of these options can lift the brightness of your smile seven shades with our in-office service delivery immediate results and our take-home method in as little as two weeks. When you receive chairside whitening at our dental office, you will have impressions of your teeth obtained so that we can provide you with the take-home system for maintenance purposes.
Why Brighten Your Teeth?
If you are unhappy with the shade of your teeth, and you just haven’t found the time to seek treatment, the following events may be a great time to take that step.
- Job Interview
- Photo Session
Prior to receiving any restorations such as veneers, crowns, bridges or partials, be sure to let us know if you have been considering a teeth whitening treatment. If so, we can arrange to brighten your teeth before the prosthetic is shade matched. This is important as restorations cannot be whitened later. Whitening your teeth before restorations are placed, will result in a uniformly brighter smile.
What is involved in Teeth Whitening?
If it is time for a regular dental cleaning, Dr. Aiken would suggest that is completed before the whitening treatment is begun.
When receiving in-office whitening, Dr. Aiken will prepare your teeth and protect your gums from coming in contact with the whitening gel. Each tooth is covered with the whitener and left to sit for about 15 to 20 minutes. Your teeth are then wiped clean and the process is repeated up to four times, depending on the degree of discoloration, to achieve the desired shade.
Receiving professional take-home teeth whitening treatments in Greenville is a very simple process. Dr. Aiken will obtain an impression of your teeth and have the custom trays fabricated at our local lab. This takes approximately two weeks, after which you will return to our office to receive your trays and the special bleaching gel. You will be provided with enough gel to last you until your next routine cleaning appointment, at which time we offer refills.
Many people attempt to whiten their teeth with over-the-counter products that have very little, if any, impact on the brightness of their smiles. Don’t waste your money on ineffective consumer products and instead consider the alternative to expensive chairside teeth whitening. Professional take-home whitening provides the effectiveness you need at your convenience.
